The Kompl app helps you explore the city you're in by helping you get lost and avoid taking the most direct route. The navigation app is perfect for tourists and wanderers looking to do some sightseeing, as opposed to directionally challenged folks trying to get somewhere new in a hurry.
Not the first of the mobile apps encouraging users to take the scenic route, the Kompl app focuses on urban areas, landmarks and other popular attractions rather than beautiful views or walking paths. The smartphone application shows users how close they are to nearby sights, without showing them how to get there. This enhances the exploratory aspect of the experience.
Light on the actual navigation, the travel app is asking people to vote for their next city online now.
