New free location app ideal for finding places in cities and travelling

Ever have difficulty directing friends to a restaurant? Finding family at a park? Navigating anywhere in the world? This new app called What3words might be what you need.

What3words is a geocode system for the communication of locations with a resolution of three metres. What3words encodes geographic coordinates into three dictionary words; the encoding is permanently fixed. For example, the omphalos of Delphi, believed by the ancient Greeks to be the centre of the world, is located at "spooky.solemn.huggers". What3words differs from most other location encoding systems in that it displays three words rather than long strings of numbers or letters.
