    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.

      Going on 3 years with Gyroscope and it's one of my favourite apps! I particularly love using it when I travel. Not only does it provide a unique recap of the places visited, but visualizes it in such a unique and beautiful way every time!

      Been using Gyroscope since '15 and I love it to bits. Really excited to see how the Places feature evolves, been using it in Beta for a while and it's getting better and better with each release.

      Worth every penny.

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

    Google Maps Timeline

    Rediscover all places you've been by exploring your timeline

    I use Google Maps Timeline to view places visited, its like viewing Flickr map without photos but red dots instead of pink ones.

      The Google Map colors has been the sayings from inception allow other colors to be created by the user colors that they want to use not the basic colors that Google put out originally. Personalization is the only thing I can think of where color schemes chosen by the user would make the music more. also add music somehow in the background while driving it's boring just driving all day if smooth jazz was playing in the background of Torrington directions offered by the map I would listen longer I would use it .

    Discover & share your favorite beers

    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 ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

    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.
