So, after our first cryptic post, we're finally about to tell you a bit more about what we're doing with Wander!
Wander is a new, soon-to-be-released app which will allow you to plan walks wherever you are, and take you to the most interesting places along the way. Instead of picking places you want to visit and working out how you're going to get there, Wander is all about the journey. Whether you'd like a leisurely 15 minute stretch of your legs over lunch, or a long, two hour hike, Wander has got you covered.
Once you've decided how long you'd like to walk for, you can pick what kinds of things you'd like to see. Want to see the top attractions in a new town? Just set the filter. Museum buff? We've got you covered. Just fancy relaxing in a nearby park or natural space? Yup, we've got that too. All of this is pulled from a huge, worldwide database of places, so you'll always have something new to see!
Wander then pulls up your results, you can then pick the most interesting places to plan your route, and Wander will work out the best way of going around, just follow the line. Don't feel like you need to stick to the plan Wander sets for you though, computers don't know everything, so if you see something interesting and go off track, you can always leave and rejoin the route later on via our handy map!
When you've had your Wander, we'd really like it if you could give us feedback on the places you saw, if you took a cool photo, you can add that to Wander for others to see, or if you really liked a place, you can rate it so others can see what you liked! We're always looking to improve as well, so if you feel like something's missing, or isn't working properly, we'll be using the forum to keep tabs on what you want, and we'll do our best to make it happen!
