    Whether you're attending a music festival with 5 friends or by yourself, it can be dangerous to get lost. With the right technology on your phone, you and your friends can be safe while you enjoy getting back to the festival scene.

    PRICELESS for 911 calls Aug 4, 2021

    By Jenn In Indiana
    I am a 911 dispatcher, and this app is a lifesaver for people who don't know where they are. Middle of a big field? On a boat in a big lake? Some long stretch of dark desert highway? Finally, now you can communicate EXACTLY where you are!
  • Critically Important App Jan 14, 2019

    By Minimus inter alios
    I just told my family members to download and install what3words. Everybody should have it. This app can save lives. Don't get stuck in a situation where you can't communicate your exact location except in the most circumstantial fashion, by numerical coordinates, or by saying what you see around you, or by walking to find the mile marker while other drivers are zooming by at 65mph. What if you are trapped in earthquake debris, or are on a rooftop in a flood, or have lost your way walking in the Pine Barrens like Paulie and Chris in The Sopranos, or had a bad fall while hiking? Three words is all it takes for people to locate you with a precision of a 3x3m square.

    Perfect for metal detecting. Example:- When you're in a field stuck out in the countryside and (if you're lucky to find something important). You can contact the FLO (finds liaison officer/county archaelogist) using this app, and they can find you to come out and record the find(s). Especially of historical importance i.e hoard of gold roman coins. Better than trying to give an 8 figure grid ref off a map.
  • Needs improvements Aug 21, 2019

    By Reitveld
    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 to listen for input but there is no output. 3) selecting neighboring squares around your Geo location is very clunky. The app should have accessed all of the neighboring square data. It should be much quicker than it is. 4) when absolute precision is not necessary, it would be great to have a list of the three words surrounding you. That way it would be easy to find an easy, pronounceable, & fun three word combination. This would be useful for finding a word selection for your house or business when it is acceptable to be off a little bit.

    Great Idea for an app, Don't listen to other comments, people just like to find things to complain about Like, oH iT aDvErTisZEd iTsElF. That's just an ad algorithm, plus the ads are low to none. This app is genius, and very helpful to pinpoint exact locations, and it's tracking for where you are is only off by a meter or so each time, which is extremely accurate for a satellite.
  • DOWNLOAD IT FIRST IN YOUR FAM! Jul 7, 2020

    By Wicked Scotsman
    Seriously, go download it already, tell the family and friend to do it too. This is going to change how we deal with the world forever. AND ITS FUN, the word combos can just sound plain silly, I just go on sometimes and click the squares around where I am and always get a good laugh or 2. NONE of the words are profanity or inappropriate, just common everyday words in a sometimes funny 3word combination. IT ONLY WORKS if we all use it and will be the location pinpoint overhaul the delivery industry has needed since GPS&CPUs changed everything. Why are you still reading, go tell it on the mountain!!!

    Brilliant and original idea. I tend to use it in conjunction with other sat nav as postcodes don't always get you there. Use this app to locate exactly where you want to go, click navigate and pick whatever navigation app you prefer. Exactly what an app needs to be; simple interface, straightforward and intuitive. Well done developers!
  • All you need is the “network effect” Sep 29, 2018

    By K. M. Peterson
    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 Aug 24, 2019

    By Wizzzzit
    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 Apr 10, 2018

    By Lemon AIDs
    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.

  • Great potential, but....... Mar 10, 2019

    By Baseballbum
    This app has great potential to get to a much more accurate location than normal GPS, but it has a couple of shortcomings that need to be addressed. First, if you decide to save more than a few locations you will have a hard time finding the one you want since there isn’t any way to sort them. They are just listed in the order you saved them. Until app makers like Apple add 3words to their contact app this is a problem. 3words could at least list them in alphabetical order using the name you set for the location. Second, the voice recognition is useless. I set 3 words to US English and it never locates the correct address. It always finds addresses that aren’t even in the US and the street numbers and names aren’t even close to what I am saying. One other small thing is when I copy an address from Contacts that includes an apartment number or suite number, 3words isn’t smart enough to parse out the apt or suite info so it can’t find the address. I have to edit it out myself manually. Since voice recognition doesn’t work, the app is kind of useless if you are in a hurry. It will also be much more useful if Apple and others add support to recognize the /// as a link so you don’t have to copy and paste the location.

  • Interesting Idea - But Not Sold On The Necessity Aug 7, 2021

    By Gap Spanner
    The concept sounds interesting, but I’m not sure how this is more useful than other apps already on your phone. You open the app and are presented with three words that identify where you’re standing. You then send or otherwise communicate those words to someone else who enters them into their copy of the app, ‘pointing’ to where you are on a map. In order to get someone to you though, the lat/lon coordinates or address needs to be sent to another mapping app for navigation directions. Consider that I Can tap-hold on the included map with my phone, then hit the ‘share’ icon and text, email, etc the precise location - which can then be tapped by the recipient to show my precise location on a map and/or satellite image, with navigation options. Seems faster to me. W3W seems like a linguistic way to point to a spot on a map - but with modern smart phones, which are needed for this app anyway, you can point to that spot with your finger so … why?

  • Still useless, only map app that only runs in Portrait mode Apr 4, 2019

    By ToborThe8Man
    Seriously, how hard can it be to make What3Words run in Landscape mode? This is coding 101 stuff, but apparently not for this app. A Map app that doesn’t rotate is not a map app at all. I have a 12.9” iPad Pro with attached keyboard that I normally use in Landscape mode. Since the app only runs in Portrait mode, I either have to use it sideways with my head tilted 90% left (causing great pain), or unplug my keyboard, physically rotate the screen to Portrait mode, and replug/re-rotate when done, no thanks! If it ran in Landscape mode would be a great app, really - how hard can that be??? Please recognize that some of us run apps in Landscape mode, as this app is truly painful for iPad with keyboard

I have recommended this app to so many people for so many reasons, not the least, 911 call centers! Download it today! You will not be disappointed.

    If you open the app when it was closed, it finds your current location easily. If you already had it open earlier, trying to find a "where am I" menu option is impossible. One of the most basic features isn't a prominent menu item. It should be easier to use for someone unfamiliar with it.
  • Location finding is not reliable Sep 2, 2019

    By Raj 'em
    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 this problem exists. Until it’s fixed, I have to find my desired location on the map myself and choose it. I can’t rely on the app to do it. So until then, three stars.
  • Great app with a big flaw Oct 29, 2019

    By iowa_don
    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) over the last couple of weeks. The app ‘works’, giving a 3 word address based on the GPS but there is no map. It sorely needs downloadable maps similar to the way the HERE WeGo app works.

    So I used this app in anger for the first time today; was walking in a local country park and saw a woman who had fallen and broken her ankle.

  • Graph paper representation instead of map is useless! Aug 17, 2019

    I was excited to learn about this app and tried it out on my home address, but was presented with something like graph paper where I could see the street names, but the houses were so unclearly marked that I didn’t know what “square” to click on. Click on one of the thousands of squares of the graph “paper”? This, in spite of having allowed the app to access my location. If this were the wilderness and I was lost, I suppose the 3 words might get rescuers to within a reasonable distance to find me, but this first experience leaves me utterly unimpressed. One star because “no star” is not permitted.

    My wife regularly sends W3W. It is often wrong, sometimes miles out. When I place our mobiles side by side outdoors they show different locations. Position Cadiz province, Andalucia, clear sky. Unreliable product

    Requires robust internet connection. No pattern to the words - is ‘robust,internet, connection’ nearby, or far away? Is it even valid? If you receive a 3 word location, and it isn’t valid, what’s the problem - spelling or a misunderstood word, or even 2 misunderstood words? Requires secondary app to get directions - not a show stopper, but a pain to switch. A solution in search of a problem already solved better by LAT/LONG. Sure, you could say nobody knows their LAT/LONG off the top of their head, but you can find it on a paper map. 3 words needs an electronic device and a connection.

    Marketing convinced me. Apple downloaded for me. Tried to sign up with email account. Took all the steps. Tried to input a country other than the first in the alohabet-Albania- but could not see the country names. Page where they should appear was just white. I can hear the countries scrolling but there are no names appearing. I scrolled ahead several times to try to get to my country but gave up at Ireland. It is not a simple process to keep trying this way. I prefer not to create new accounts with Google sign in and do jot use Facebook at all. So I cannot create an account.
