I love the notion of this app. Pretty simple really, but great implementation and this is *zactly* what I'd like to see more of.

yep. i figured the london version would trigger an avalanche of subway directional apps.

The only thing is, this is in reality a bad idea.
Cool, but still bad.

Scenario:
Hmm. Im standing here around 42nd street.
Its 10pm
I wonder where the closest subway is because Im a tourist and don't know the basics of how the subway stations are located in NYC.
Gee, I'd better whip out my $600 iPhone and have a lookyloo.
Ah let me turn around over and over to see which is my best choice.
Hmm there is a gentleman walking towards me.
I hope he doesn't think im photographing him?
Err. where did my phone go?
And why am I bleeding from my kidney?

I have to disagree completely with this being anything other than an amazingly cool looking app.  Imagine a more comprehensive locator with subscribing businesses (that you may be interested in) automatically revealing themselves when in range.  Or jeepers, a family of five goes to Disneyland and dad asks: "hey, where's little Timmy?"  Heck I'd love to know the precise location of my girlfriend 24/7/365 - wouldn't you?  Wink

Adding dynamism to the mix makes this a huge offering.  Things like:

  • People who bought this X also liked Y, and Y is right over there
  • Filtering based on hours of operation, type of bar/club, 1-5 star ranking of hotels
  • Amber alerts (last known location, etc.)
  • Breadcrumbs of personal and subjective interest (no way - that's the dumpster I was born in!)
  • And of course, fire

Seriously good job on the interface from what I can tell.  Thanks Perk.

i agree 100%

my point was just about these early apps.

Like most new tech, usefulness is inversely proportional to success.

Examples:
Video Tape - Porn
Computers - Games
Internet - porn and sex
telephone - sex (you no longer had to fuck the neighbor girl...)
etc etc etc

Like I have said before, the real leap will be when this type of tech can be "built into your head" let say by eye glasses or something.
Then you don't look like a tard.
I would be all over it, if I could be reminded what the fuck the name of the person is that I am shaking hands with and where I met them.
directions? meh, iphone.
Local businesses? meh, i phone around-me app.

telling me stuff I didnt know I wanted to know... or forgot? interesting.

Internet - porn and sex

I believe gambling now trumps porn, but I digress.  Anyway, back to porn... err I mean that app  Wink

Wait for it.....

eHarmony meets extreme dating in a location-based utopia of real-time sex mashups with personality/STD filtering.  It could even have an "Exclude Registered Sex Offenders" checkbox for an upgrade fee.  Peer to peer redefined.  And yes, the herp-laden sexquatch wants to know where you are whereas you want to find the nearest escape route  ROFLMAO
