Findery Debuts iPhone® App in Australia

October 24, 2013 Apps No Comments Email Email

Findery, a platform for annotating the world, is available on iPhone in Australia as of today. The first offering in a global rollout, the free app makes it easy for people to leave notes and find unexpected stories and information about the world around them, wherever they are.

Findery captures the character and meaning of a place, including secret and little known histories told in notes left by others.

Unlike other location services that are centered around recommendations for restaurants, bars or shopping, Findery’s notes include personal stories, memories, colorful histories, previews into what’s coming and other little known facts. Members can connect with others, and favorite or comment on250x250TICBanner posts, sharing their own experiences with a specific locale.

“Every place has a story, and Findery is about annotating the globe – from Adelaide to Austin,” said Caterina Fake, founder and CEO of Findery.  “Whether you’re on a trip to somewhere faraway or visiting a town the next county over, you can use Findery to share your story, or let Findery’s members tell theirs.”

On the iPhone app, type in a location, the name of a place or a keyword and the map will go there and show you notes left by community members. These notes can include photos, videos and sound files, and can be uploaded and shared publicly. Members may also leave private notes for friends and family to find when they visit a certain spot.

Findery is a great resource for travelers as well as locals interested in learning more about their neighborhood and city. Some sample notes around the world include:

  • Dubai visitor guide from a Canadian expat. Explains the local culture and shows things (spice shops, Pakistani sweets, napping baby camels) that only a local could
  • Iceland itinerary. A traveler on her trip-of-a-lifetime to Iceland tells us of candy discounts and icebergs
  • Dear Basha. A lovely, heartfelt memory trail left for a seven-year-old by her aunt for her to discover when she’s older
    • Architecture of Monterrey and beyond. A Monterrey member’s posts show the beauty and uniqueness of architecture in Mexico and Texas
    • The dog on the tuckerbox. Australian native provides interesting perspective and details on life in Sydney.
    • Legacy bars and restaurants in San Francisco. The oldest still-in-operation eating establishments in the city and their sometimes surprising histories 

Findery is available for download today in the Australian App Store, download the app is now available and it’s https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/findery-discovery-exploration/id597596497?ls=1&mt=8. Findery will be available in more markets and on more operating systems in the months ahead.
