Caterina Fake, the woman behind Flickr, is today launching an Android app for the social discovery platform Findery. The purpose of Findery is to discover stories and notes about places all around the world. Users can read stories, histories, and tips about a particular location. Then, they can share their own experience for someone to pick up and read later on.
“The world is a big place, and an endless source of wonder and discovery. Android, with its worldwide distribution, will grow our community of explorers,” says Fake. Findery notes have already been shared in 196 countries around the world.
Even if you are not a tourist, Findery is still be a very impressive tool. Go somewhere and find out more about the location. There is a very good chance you will learn something new. Findery also allows users to follow one another; therefore, someone you can keep track of someone if they tend to be a particularly interesting traveler.
