    All you need is the “network effect”

    Thing is: this is such a great idea. Extremely well thought out, in spite of some comments of people who don’t get it. But I hope this can gradually gather steam (you really need some publicity!), as the most serious problem is that people who tend to understand *why* this is a good idea don’t need it as much as those who don’t know how hard it is to locate a place and communicate that accurately. As more and more people use it, however, hopefully the network effect will amplify its relevance. My brother drives for Lyft, and really wishes they used it.

    Another “disruptive” technology

    An immensely important app that everyone should download. This has the capability of being another “disruptive,” game-changing technology. This simplifies a desired address to a 3x3 meter square. This could improve navigation for regular commuting, ride sharing, delivery services, search and rescue.... The possibilities are endless. My only recommendation to the developers would be to allow the app to access your Contacts List to search those addresses for their 3 words. Otherwise, wonderful work! Kudos!

    Great app. Suggestions for the future

    There are so many possibilities for what could be done with this app. What if you could connect it to social media and publicly share locations. Or you could look at the map and turn a filter on to view popular saved locations that are represented by different colors based on how many people have saved them. You could learn the popular places at a state park and go there without having to do tons of research! Keep adding on to this, you’ve got something good here.

    New and innovative approach

    I like the idea and can imagine so many uses for this mapping approach. I like being able to save the locations. I would like to change the order of my saved locations. So far I cannot see how to change the order of saved locations. It appears to be sorted based on the last location saved is top of the list. Great idea with vast potential, great job!

    What The WHAT - you need this app

    I love being able to share my location, a location of an artist’s booth in an art show or the driveway entrance for a rural piece of property. There are so many uses it is brilliant! The kids love looking at the squares near where we are for fun 3 word combinations. You can even write poetry with it! Oh, and one day this app may just save your life or the life of a loved one. Get it today!
