Amazing idea

Simple but super useful idea. I hope I never have to use this for emergency purposes, but knowing that I have it feels good.

Everyone should use this, especially realtors!

Have you ever looked at a real estate listing, especially for rural land, to find the address vague? No matter how hard you try,
you can’t find the property using an online map. How great would it be if realtors used this app to locate the entrance to the
property so precisely! I have recommended th

Love this app as a hiker

Often, there is no address for hikes and so this is a great app to track all of the trails that I love. And also great to direct
my friends to meet me there. However. I seem to have hit a limit on the number of places that I can save. I would like to have
more ability to save more locations. Thanks!

I can’t help but believe this world wide addressing method is our future.
In Seattle, we have 5 streets with 145 in the name, and at least 2 of them actually cross.
I wish we had this app then 👍

The Future of navigation is here!

The concept is brilliant and the implementation is flawless. I've never had so much fun looking up random places on a map! And the
use cases are endless. I'd love a journaling or travel blogging app that used this technology.

Compatible with Google Maps and Apple Maps.

“Key app features:
Compatible with navigation and messaging apps including Google Maps and Apple Maps”.

I tried entering my 3 word address into Google Maps & Apple Maps, but “No results”.

Your FAQ tells the correct story:
“Can I type it in to Google maps?”

That Facebook/Google login

In my previous review, I complained about a login process that included "Continue with" Facebook and Google options. No thanks, I
thought, they already know enough about me.
Since then, I have contacted by them. They graciously pointed out that many of the app's features, including the most import

Travel woes

A year or two ago I was in Costa Rica looking for an Airbnb I had booked in a super sketchy neighborhood. Everyone had tall gates
and walls around their houses. The directions had an address and “ we are the house with a pink door and a tall flag pole. I
drove around that super sketch neighborhood f

Useful app

Very useful and helpful app, though I do wish it would have the option to stay on- I use it while driving to report potholes and
find I have to keep touching the screen often to keep the phone from going into lock mode.

So easy

It is the fastest way I know of to give a specific location to anyone, on any platform. Everyone should have this on their device,
and be able to help family members download it onto theirs so that they can be found in case of emergency, or just a social meet
up. So easy to use.

W3W the humane way of identifying location

I have been using What3Words for about two years and continue to love it. It is so much easier for the elderly to remember 3 words
than trying to memorize two strings of of eight to to ten digits in length.

It’s amazing to be able to save people’s lives. What would make this app even better if it was able to be data free. Just
Incase you were somewhere you don’t have a signal. If there was an emergency situation. If you had a satellite phone. You could
save anyone world wide.

Huge leap forward for safety

Imagine being able to describe exactly where you are, anywhere you are, to emergency services by saying 3 words. For instance, if
you’re in the middle of the woods, or in an unfamiliar place. It’s an amazingly simple and powerful tool. Every parent should
have it, and every emergency service should

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.

App consistently 2 squares off

Tried this app at home after I downloaded and it consistently showed my location 2 squares off from where I was. Not too far off
granted, though it was a little unnerving when I went upstairs and the blue location dot placed me up in a tree in the park next
to my house.

Great app with a big flaw

I love the idea of this app and they have done well implementing it. HOWEVER, it is useless without cellular data (which I
suspect is the case in many, if not most, areas that do not have street addresses). I tried using the app in several national
parks ( which have spotty or no cell service) ove

Location finding is not reliable

The concept of this app is fantastic! Every 9 square meter area of the planet has a unique three word combination. Very useful
to find precise locations, EXCEPT.... it can never quite find me. It’s the only map-related app I’ve used that keeps bouncing
around to try and find me. I don’t know why

Needs improvements

This is a very good idea and concept. The app though needs some improvements:
1) A way to actually copy the three words without all the extra text copied with it. Maybe this is in the settings maybe this is a
separate ‘copy’ selection.
2) A way to pronounce the three words. Yes there’s a microphone
