Launched for Android-operated smartphones in December last year, the app uses your location to show stories from a selection of publishers including Dezeen about architecturally interesting buildings, shops, bars, restaurants and more, shown either as a list or tabs on a map.

Tapping on map pins brings up the project name and source, then tapping again brings up a range of images of the project that can be scrolled through, plus a few paragraphs of text about them.

    Wow, great app. Whenever you go to a new place as tourist, you only know so much and when you return back home you always come away with something that you wish you did. Apps like this are great for any design traveler. This is like the best pocket guide.

    It’s a shame it’s not available in every store. Does anyone know if it’s going worldwide?
