How Worldly Are You? This App Can Tell You

Want to know just how worldly you are? Thickpolicy’s new iOS app Strut aims to do just that. The free app tasks you with tracking your travels which are then plotted onto a map that you can share with your friends. You can add new countries, cities and streets as you go new places.

The app doesn’t just follow your flights to Brazil or bike rides through Switzerland. You can use it to track your every day movements around your own city. Check it out: “Take a new route to work. Go down that street you never walked through. Visit every nook and cranny of your city. See more of your neighborhood – who knows what you might find?”

You can compare your progress with other users and earn medals which could land you on top of the leaderboards. Every city, state, country and even the world has a top 10 list. (Via Engadget).
