Recognized for its out-of-the-box approach to navigation, Sproute App was one of the winners of Fast Company's 2020 Innovation by Design Awards. The service starts from the premise that our contemporary lives are primed by convenience and efficiency. That this causes us to miss things. Therefore, instead of necessarily showing users the quickest way of getting somewhere—it gives them more options to consider.
There are three modes in Sproute App—the Sightseer, the Nightlight, and the Commuter. The first option will generate a route that might not be the most direct, but one that will allow you to see the most interesting landmarks along the way. The Nightlight creates a route that avoids unlit streets as much as possible. Finally, the Commuter generates 100 routes between your location and your destination so that you have something to pick from.
