The 'Likeways' App Helps Travelers Find the Most Interesting Route

'Likeways' is a new app that helps travelers take the most interesting route rather than the shortest route. For those who love to explore new places, time is not always of the essence. This app is designed for those who like to stop and smell the roses instead of rushing to their next destination.

Likeways is a free app created by PhD candidate Martin Traunmueller. The app is designed to offer a different approach to pedestrian navigation by brining back pleasure to urban exploration. Instead of showing users the shortest route to their destination, Likeways outlines the most interesting route, with specific points of interest included along the way. Users can even specify specific points of interest such as shops, restaurants and galleries and the app will produce a route that includes such venues.

The app is ideal for those who want to explore an new area without ending up completely lost.
