My sixth sense

Nearstory gives me a sixth sense when I am listening and exploring - knowledge. I love that I can get more context about where I am or where I am going. It makes every trip richer and more interesting. The curated content is high quality but not something I’ve already heard and the interface is really unique and easy to use, even on the go. I feel like I’ve got a wise, local friend showing me around as I travel or even commute. So fun and insightful.

Amazing for road trips

My wife and I frequently drive for 4-6 hours and we love listening to podcasts as we go. Nearstory allows us to combine podcasts with the points of interest around us as we go places, making more of the car journey and, usually, giving us some more interesting info about the places we’re going to.

It’s a great app, thoughtfully designed and packed full of history and amazing stories
