You know youve been there. You are exploring a strange and fascinating new city on foot, guide book in hand and you know exactly where you want to go… except that you have no clue how to get there. You could, of course, ask the locals—but this might lead to conversation, and heaven forbid, you might even end up with a new friend. And you were just looking for directions!
Thataway! is designed to save you from this sort of mortification. Instead of talking to people, you can sit in the safety and seclusion of your hotel room (actually, why wait until then… you can do this at home), make a list of all the places you want to visit, and walk out confident that you will not be forced to interact with humans or rack up huge roaming data bills. The app does what a friendly local would have done–point you in the right direction and tell you how far you are from where you want to be, but it does not try to become your friend.
I know. You are welcome.
