Is there anything new? Please tell everyone.

Great idea, thankfully not had to use it in an emergency which is a good job as the app keeps shutting down within seconds of me opening it ?

Don't use it often, but for noticed a week or so back that the app no longer loads.

I haven't used your app yet, unfortunately when I needed to last night whilst contacting the emergency services I didn't have good enough signal to download it. I have very reluctantly downloaded it now incase I need it in the future, of there was an app that gave a grid reference instead of this ridiculous gimmick of using words then I would delete this app and use it instead. It is literally the most retarded idea using words to give a location when the far superior grid location system exists

I love the W3W system, the app could be improved though as it's a bit clunky. I've had to reinstall the app a few times on different devices as I get errors saying "not responding" "wait" etc. I've used it on Samsung Tablets and several phones, Galaxy A70s & A53s. Overall it works well and helps with unique locations. I lived in a new, very rural location for a while that wasn't easily available so I used W3W to share my location for a family party and everyone found me np ?

Worked extremely well for directing a fleet of drivers to specific spots in large parking lots. Very nimble search and favorites functions too. My only suggestion: Make satellite the default view.

This is such an easy app to use and could prove crucial if you lose your bearings whilst out walking on the moors for example or if you need help but can't pinpoint your location. This tool really would keep you safe. I am seeing it more on websites now also to find locations if the postcode isn't recognised on sat nav for example.

When it worked, this app was great. Now, despite updating, the app won't open at all. Very frustrating, and exactly the opposite of what's needed in an emergency situation

A fantastic life saving idea..... However I can't open the app.... Any suggestions please? I'm on a Google pixel 6
Henrik Brandin 2022-08-21

New Pixel 6a. Playing with One Tap on the back of phone feature, haven't set up or logged in to w3w on this device yet. And when I tap the phone starts to behave odd in other places seemingly. Please fix. w3w is a cool idea, its app has more to wish for. Uninstall till I really need it.

Amazing app saves so much time when people are not sure of their location.
