What are some of your favorite location based apps? πŸ“πŸ“±

I've been seeing a rise in apps that performs actions based on the location you're in and I think that's a pretty cool space. Want to know if you've given any of these a shot and which ones you like the most 😸

    Turn your run/bike/walk into a giant Etch-a-Sketch

    Ryan HooverFounder of Product Hunt & Weekend Fund Β· Written
    I'm a sucker for nostalgia. Similar to other fitness tracking apps like Nike+ and Strava, this app tracks your runs/bikes/travels and translates them into an etch-a-sketch image.

    You can draw on your local sky anywhere, any time. Depending where you are geographically you get a completely different sky.

    Discover & share your favorite beers

    Scott KippProduct Manager, EdTech Β· Written
    Untappd isn't, in my impression, location-driven, so may not sqaurely fit under "location based", but it does allow you to see location-based (i.e. 'Nearby') activity. I like that because it serves purposes closely aligned with the app itself: I can see who is buying which beers close to me, and I can see who those people are. Each of those things is connected to an action with the app: the former being "add this beer to wish list", the latter being "friend this user" (after seeing what they're drinking and where, it's a request informed by location and common interests).

    I like Flinder especially when I'm on a citytrip. It makes it fun to explore a city to suggest things to do you didn't think of beforehand. P.S. I'm the maker so it's possible I'm a little biased 😬

    Find the best vegan and vegetarian options

    I am vegetarian. It is difficult to travel without food. Finding food is a big problem in countries where vegetarianism is either uncommon, nonexistent or not understood, or even due to language barriers. I use this app to find places worth going just for the meal to satisfy the tummy, mostly in Tokyo/Japan. I hope people can add more data about places around them and help tourists like me.
