    We have given every 10ftx10ft square in the world a unique 3 word address. You can use the what3words app to discover, search, and share a 3 word address, and to get directions.

    Search for a location or press the locate me icon, zoom in on the map to see the grid and move the pin to see the 3 word address change for every square. Tap the wordbar to share a 3 word address or get directions to it in a navigation app, or use the compass mode to navigate by simply following the pointer. And you can do it all offline and in your own language.

    Use what3words to share the precise delivery point for where you live or work; organise the perfect meeting spot or pinpoint hard-to-find places on your travels.

    The app is a great tool when a street address is not accurate enough or doesn’t exist.

    This held such promise, but it's broken by profit motive: W3W won't release their database of words, locking you into their private, proprietary system. Numeric (WGS84) GPS coordinates are free, easily understood and simple to convey. It's not an upgrade if any one of those three criteria must be sacrificed to improve another.

    Great idea! Sime idea, yet very effective. I use it for noting locations of photos, meeting up in large, busy spaces, and to provide the "address" of a summer home and location at ski resorts. And so much more is possible!
