You’re visiting Earth, you don’t have much time, and you need the lowdown! Fortunately you’ve brought your iPhone. And Adventurer.

Over 500 of the planet’s most amazing destinations, natural wonders, Earthling-made structures and historic sites: Adventurer fuses road signs to a compass face to provide a constantly-updating graphic of exactly where and how far away these locations are. Beautiful satellite imagery accompanies the locations, Wikipedia excerpts help describe why they are special, and a map view shows your current location in relation to them.

Adventurer’s smart compass adapts to your device type:
– iPhone 3GS: fully-automated compass
– iPhone 3G: GPS-assisted compass
– Other devices: manually align using the position of the sun or moon

Locations are grouped into 22 lists spanning 4 categories. Explore the complete lists, or have Adventurer return just the nearest locations in a list or category.

Part navigational, part educational and part travel companion, Adventurer will remind you of all those places you know you have to see someday, and turn you on to a few new ones too. And with its “Nearest” feature, you might find you’re a whole lot closer to some of them than you realized.

– Integrated maps and satellite imagery
– Combined digital, GPS, and sun/moon compass
– Radar-like mode for location selection
– Database of 500+ locations with excerpts from Wikipedia
– Calculate nearest sites overall, within a category, and within a list
– Links to Wikipedia and Britannica for each location
– Fluid animation between modes with UI elements reshuffling and morphing into one another
– Day/night UI modes with appropriate mode auto-detected on start up
– 4 Location categories: Places, Natural Features, Structures, Historic Sites
– 22 Lists including: Great Cities, Battlefields, Ancient Sites, Mysterious Spots, Sports Venues, National Parks, Waterfalls, Islands/Reefs, Deserts, Lakes, Mountains/Volcanoes, Holy Sites, Castles, Monuments, Museums, and more.

Basic app functionality requires being able to determine your location. This is not always possible for an iPod to do. If you own an iPod and struggle to get location fixes in, for example, the Maps app, PLEASE DON’T BUY ADVENTURER.
