What3words Into Mobile App
Hopewiser, announce the introduction of what3words into their Mobile App.
what3words is a unique combination of just 3 words that identifies a 3mx3m square, anywhere on the planet. It’s far more accurate than a postal address and much easier to remember, use and share than a set of coordinates.
Hopewiser has integrated the technology into their mobile App, meaning anyone anywhere in the world can use the look-up service. It functions without a data connection so it can still be used in remote and unaddressed locations or in areas with reduced connectivity.
Around 75% of the world (135 countries) suffers from inconsistent, complicated or inadequate addressing systems. This means that around 4 billion people are invisible; unable to report crime; unable to get deliveries or receive aid; and unable to exercise many of their rights as citizens because they simply have no way to communicate where they live.
Even in countries with advanced address systems, people get lost, packages aren’t delivered, and businesses and tourist attractions don’t get found.
Phil Good, MD of Hopewiser said “We are dedicated to providing accurate addresses throughout the world. Up until now International addresses have been of such varying quality it has always been difficult to offer a fully accurate solution, but now this combined application will give our clients the accuracy they need”.
The Mobile App is free to download, and is available for Apple, Android and Windows Phone devices.
To use the app you will require a Hopewiser web service account.
