If you haven’t heard of Tagcrumbs before, it’s a service dedicated to sharing your favourite places with your friends and people on the web, offering a great service when finding things to do around where you are, or just finding new places.
With such a service being well suited to location aware devices such as the iPhone 3GS, it was only a matter of time until Tagcrumbs had an application on the App Store, and it’s now available in the store for seven countries.
With the free Tagcrumbs iPhone app, you can recommend a place you’ve been for others to go, knowing that they’ll have a great time. With Tagcrumbs, users can tag places they find, offering great flexibility to users who can recommend and find virtually anything they want that’s been tagged by others.
Another great feature of this free application is that if you’re not connected by Wi-Fi and don’t have GPS active, there’s an online mode that you can use to draft recommendations and then publish them when you have a connection.
With the introduction of their iPhone application, it makes for the perfect means of adding or “tagging” places onto Tagcrumbs in a similar way to other location-based apps, however this is more about providing information about the places that you’ve been to rather than broadcasting out to the world where you are at that precise moment in time.
Another interesting feature is that you can create digital breadcrumb trails for others to follow in your footsteps (quite literally), which I’m sure could be quite fun, whether you’re on holiday and looking for a tourist trail or simply looking for a new pub crawl route for a night out.
I’m sure there’s lots more to come from these types of location-based apps, but I’m pleased to see that this particular one seems to have more direction and purpose than some of the other more big name apps out there that I’ve tried on my iPhone 3GS! Let’s hope they come up with an Android version of this app soon!
If you’re a someone who loves location-based apps, then, you’ll definitely like this Tagcrumbs iPhone app and you should try it out from the App Store as soon as you can!
