Hey Hunters! We’re happy to introduce you to the newly redesigned Sidekix, now available also on Android (as well as iOS). What is Sidekix, you ask? We’ve been called “waze for walkers” or the lovechild of Yelp and Google maps. At our essence, we are a smart walking and urban discovery app for people who love to explore on foot. We believe that walking is the best way to discover a city and truly understand its local vibe. Most navigation apps offer only the shortest or fastest way. This is fine when you’re in a rush, but less useful when you travel, or have leisure time to explore. To truly enjoy a city, you should enjoy it your way: So we pioneered the concept of experience based routing--offering route choices based on your interests. If you’re in Paris to shop, Sidekix will offer routes with the maximum number of boutiques. If you want the cultural side of Berlin, we include the most landmarks and historical buildings. How do we do this? Well, what we don’t do is overwhelm you with every business or attraction--just the highest rated ones. By curating suggestions, make it easier to have urban adventures on the fly. Sidekix is available in hundreds of cities through-out the US, Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Australia, and adding more all the time. We’d love for you to try us! -Jenny, Sidekix Co-founder

@jenny_drezin Last time I was in NYC I walked over 25 miles in 3 days. Walking is 100% the best way to experience a city!
@robjbye That's awesome. Obviously we agree! NYC is my hometown and definitely the city to walk.

Overall a great way to quickly get your bearing in a new place.

Pros:

Very easy to use. Used it in several cities across Europe.

Cons:

Would love to see an offline version.

I used it several times when I travelled abroad and it was better than any other guide

Pros:

Shows you places around you and suggests great walking routes upon your interests

Cons:

can't think of one

As someone who traveles a lot but has very limited time to explore, Sidekix helps me experience the cities I visit according to my (very specific) intesrests and dietary restrictions

Pros:

I travel a lot for business and it helps me experience the city even with very limited time

Cons:

None

Awesome product! Well done sidekix team!
@sivan_baram Thanks so much! The idea was to provide something with a different kind of value that what you get from normal navigation apps.
