Excellent and Beautiful 5/5
By ممدوح بن فهد
Wonderful and distinctive
Fun toy, mostly worthless 1/5
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.

What a great way to locate yourself! 5/5
This is really an amazing App. It's much easier to remember 3 common word to locate where you are than a really long string of numbers.
By Ph. Omar
What an App !!
Thanks for the excellent work , hope you implement a google maps navigation inside it
Great way to enhance location
Prof Emeritus Geology 5/5
I am 91 years old and very fortunate that w38w technology not only exists, but that a nonagenarian can actually use it!
Love that idea! 5/5
I love the app and idea laying under it. I’ll use it to build decentralized p2p shipping platform. Delivery in any point on a map.
Need better help & Insructions 1/5
By Kevin Effin
Good concept, explaining so people will use it. Business 101 folks.
Brilliant idea! 5/5
By Elin Elkehag
Love the app and that the application solves real problems for real people. The Swedish and English version works equally well. Love it!
Great app 5/5
By E Karnes
As a long time geocacher I use this app to verify cache locations. It is dead on.
I tell every one who has any interest to get on board. Thanks for a fabulous application.

كويس بس نبغا اعلان بالعربي عشان ننشرو😁
So easy! 5/5
Beats the heck out of section, township, range, quarter! Much easier than sharing a Lat/Lon coordinate too!
Great concept 5/5
Super cool concept. Now if we can just get Amazon and the USPS to use it.
Great app. Suggestions for the future 5/5
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.
Dictated by a Likable User 5/5
I have always loved the idea of 3words, and I have used it with glee sometimes. However, I have been quite saddened with the inability to save locations. Well, hot-freaking-dog! Wait no longer, because my wish has become reality! Thank you for making this app immensely easier to use on a day to day basis.
Awesome update... Need a new feature 5/5
By Abode v2
When I travel, I want to save multiple trip locations in a list called “Paris” or “Awesome New York Trip”... then i want to be able to
a) export that list into a word or excel file for printing or sharing physically...
b) share the complete list (or part of it) easily with a friend or social media “Hey, you should visit THESE places when you travel using w3w!”
Then everyone will use What3Words...
Make the whole thing easy to export and share!
Good luck with app!
very very nice 5/5
very useful, easiest and most accurate way to describe your exact address
Interesting. Interesting. Interesting. 4/5
Interesting. But when I use voice to type address on keyboard.
It inserts extra spaces after dot.
It's hard to remove them each time.
Bad. Bad. Bad.
Can you trim spaces and extra dots automatically?
How does the app deal with words that sound alike and or spelled the same? New knew wind windy.
Creative, Innovative, & Amazing 5/5
This app is amazing! I can find any 3x3 Meyer square in the world and allow others to find it as well. It's easy to use and is even fun to see the addresses of places you frequent. Overall, I love it so much.

Its the best in fiding locations😘😘😘
JUST TYPE THREE WORDS
FIND YOUR FRIEND OR COMPANY LOCATIONS
By Thompson Hill
This is truly revolutionary. I suspect over time it will become the standard for how to navigate from one place to the next. I am fascinated by the whole concept.
Feels so good to join the x% that don’t have an address 5/5
Having a domicile -an address, was part of the establishment, but honestly...how could we feel good about that when 60%* of the world don’t have a domicile. Is it just poverty that groups us, couldn’t be education -as I am bilingual, healthy -thanks God, at 70 and wanting to be useful to the world. Wa have left, shaken off the communications grid as even the internet is wireless (celular) now. Pretty soon electricity via super capacitors, solar and wind sourcing it will voids of all those wires, but where are we..... enter what3words! Hip, hip, hurray!!
satellite view vs standard view 4/5
it appears that for some squares, the standard view differs from the satellite view by one square.
GPS Error 3/5
By too late to 'pologize
Considering the poor resolution of a phone's GPS and given other reviews here, how can we expect the app to choose the right 3m square when such info is drifting unreliably?
Good, but don’t like the idea of someone decide 3Words for my address 4/5
I match this with Internet DNS , Great easy to remember. But I want to decide my address 3Words. Some auto assign words like danger not ok to me. Next, other language support is crucial though.
Take this review in good way , no hot feeling
Amazing but suggestion 5/5
Hope you as soon as possible connect this great app in most of the famous websites and delivery companies around the whole word. This will give a great success for this creative app. Thanks!
Like the 3.0 update 4/5
Appreciate the smoother UI. One complaint on compass mode: the compass needle being the direction pointer is strange. I suggest using a different kind of pointer. Also suggest making the degree readings a darker/more visible font color would be great too. Simply displaying the degree heading somewhere (in a larger font) would be great.
What3words Technology Uses 5/5
By Slim Pkns
Incredible innovation! Can you not see how useful this ?3Ws technology could be for other industries??? Think about it!
Login Difficulties 1/5
By KF Lagos
Why is the app rejecting email login with error messages? I have never logged into this app before now!!
By classical guitar chump
Getting more and more of my friends to use it!
A promising reality (just three words) 5/5
As a global health professional, I can imagine a lot of uses to relief and prevent human suffering. I highly appreciate your ingenuity.
Use to be goodish 1/5
Got your response but obvious you didn't actually read me comment. Below, I realize the three words are random, you discontinued the best part of purchasing a word also ignored my refund request. So I stand by my use to be good and now add thanks for the canned response.
Apps gone downhill and they got rid of the purchasing of a custom word. Seems more a gimmick now.
Game changing GPS system 4/5
The concept behind this app is brilliant- 3 words for any location on earth. So precise that a full size sedan has two distinct 3 word addresses.
What this app needs though is built-in access to the camera so that users can take a picture, and get the 3 word location embedded in an overlay. Both for sharing and for reference.
Another feature I would like is built in locati n sharing as a message 'app' (like the emoji and gif apps that you can access through the iOS message system).
Also, if anyone is looking for a topo/ hiking gps app with w3w integration, check out pocket earth.
Very useful 4/5
I'm starting to use the app more and more. The accuracy is quite amazing.
Fantastic app 5/5
Really easy app to use to find any address and get directions to any place on earth using just 3 Words in W3W!!
Amazing and very innovative. The easy to remember address of the future to any point in earth!!
Awesome мундаг 5/5
By Greetings from Mongolia
Awesome idea! Good luck!
When it comes to directions, it gives you the option to use either apple map or google map... isn't it awkward. So what the use of this if I have to use google map for directions every time I need to go somewhere...!. 👎🏻
An interesting idea 4/5
Mapping every terrestrial location by 3 English words, does seem to offer machine learning a "dictionary of places" to cross reference with human activity in those places. This has lots of potentially ill effects as well as good ones. Will machines recognize their Place of Birth? Will they mourn the passing of other machines? Or people who touch them?
This is a really cool app
Simply AMAZING! 5/5
This app is what I needed for backpacking and hiking in the wild! Coordinating meeting points and planning your trips just got super easy!
Good idea but App needs some work... 3/5
I like the technical implementation of the addressing but the App needs to up its game a bit. A simple thing like supporting Landscape mode would be nice.
Creative location place names and accurate GPS-what more could a girl ask for? Love this app. For the reviews saying it "use to be" better, perhaps the app only works for humans not bots.
By Jack sparra
What a fantastic idea and so simple and highly effective. To enable a unique address to everything and everyone is inspiring. To do it with such a useable app is amazing.
برنامج رائع ودقيق لمشاركة موقعك بالتحديد 5/5
البرنامج يستفيدون منه الدول التي لا يوجد اسماء وأرقام لشوارعها وأصحاب الرحلات البرية والبحرية
Innovative concept 4/5
By Gladly Manly
The commenter below is incorrect -- the 3 words do not change. The grid is 3x3 meters; if you zoom in close enough you'll see the grid. At a small scale you won't have the precision to tap the same grid, so it may appear that the words "change."
This is DNS for the real world. Similar to the MILS or USNG -- applications for EM perhaps. Great concept that needs wide adoption to succeed.
It's a joke 1/5
My friend and I both worked the map. The app does not keep the same 3 words. For me I seen it change 4 times in a minute. I was so hyped about this concept that I was going to write an essay on this. But after trying the app out and finding out that it does not work, well I can't sell this or even brag about it. I'm sure glad it was free to try out. Going back to standard methods. What a joke this is.
Outstanding service. I hope the whole world uses this some day. 5/5
What3words is a truly innovative idea.
It has major uses in developing areas and for software development in general. The entire world's addresses can be stored in 10mb using the what3words system!
As someone in the geospatial industry, this really excites me.
Small bug to report: the satellite basemap toggle in the upper-right of the map covers up the north arrow when changing map orientation. Fix that!
Interesting app for the curious, secretive, and playful 4/5
By Brass Tack
What3Words is pretty cool to play with but I'm not sure of it's practical use, at least in he U.S., Europe, and other developed regions of the world. That said, I can visualize this as tremendous boon in less-developed countries.
For me, I can visualize using this system in geo-caching competitions, locating camps in the wilderness, and other outdoor activities.
For those inclined to more nefarious activities, you can set up semi-clandestine meeting locations.
One addition I'd like to see (maybe it's already there and I just haven't found it) is full integration with Google Maps and other navigation apps.
I haven't spent enough time with the app to give it 5-stars but it adding that integration, especially for the third-world countries, would take it there.
