Critically Important App

I just told my family members to download and install what3words. Everybody should have it. This app can save lives. Don't get stuck in a situation where you can't communicate your exact location except in the most circumstantial fashion, by numerical coordinates, or by saying what you see around you, or by walking to find the mile marker while other drivers are zooming by at 65mph. What if you are trapped in earthquake debris, or are on a rooftop in a flood, or have lost your way walking in the Pine Barrens like Paulie and Chris in The Sopranos, or had a bad fall while hiking? Three words is all it takes for people to locate you with a precision of a 3x3m square.

Great potential, but.......

This app has great potential to get to a much more accurate location than normal GPS, but it has a couple of shortcomings that need to be addressed. First, if you decide to save more than a few locations you will have a hard time finding the one you want since there isn’t any way to sort them. They are just listed in the order you saved them. Until app makers like Apple add 3words to their contact app this is a problem. 3words could at least list them in alphabetical order using the name you set for the location. Second, the voice recognition is useless. I set 3 words to US English and it never locates the correct address. It always finds addresses that aren’t even in the US and the street numbers and names aren’t even close to what I am saying. One other small thing is when I copy an address from Contacts that includes an apartment number or suite number, 3words isn’t smart enough to parse out the apt or suite info so it can’t find the address. I have to edit it out myself manually. Since voice recognition doesn’t work, the app is kind of useless if you are in a hurry. It will also be much more useful if Apple and others add support to recognize the /// as a link so you don’t have to copy and paste the location.

Can’t get it to work and no instructions

I installed it on iPhone because of a local news story that local 911 is using it. I can’t get it to work. There are no instructions. It asked me to pick a language, and then I get a blank white screen that says What Three Words. In perfect English. If it isn’t actually supposed to do anything for me it hardly tells me that since there ARE no instructions. What idiots. I sure can’t give 911 3 words if it doesn’t give them to me.
////////////////////////://///
I followed link from news article to what 3 words web site and got a screen that said click on search bar to get three words, unclear which space they mean, I clicked all over the page and nothing happened.
///////////////////////////
My guess is this app run by high tech engineers who can’t think and don’t care. Developer any response that doesn’t include a link to the instruction page will be nonresponsive. That’s instructions not a video demoing how blocks on a map correspond to 3 words. You need to grow heads.
