Loved by locals and tourists alike, Sidekix smart walking navigation has been recommended by the New York Times and Mashable as a top app. Get ready to experience a whole new perspective of your city and discover urban gems you never knew existed.

The best way to explore your city on foot, Sidekix helps you find interesting places and events within walking distance, then offers interesting routes and detours especially built around your passions (whether you’re into food, shopping, art, nightlife, and more).

No matter if you’re planning a full day of activities or just looking for stuff to do, Sidekix is the best way to discover what’s around you. An exploration tool, travel planner, and tour guide all in one, Sidekix helps you find hidden gems nearby, and locate the best local spots whenever you visit a new city.

Sidekix will even provide directions to guide you, also available on the Apple Watch.

Minor bug fixes

Ratings and Reviews

Work in progress

Norman Segall

Main flaw: can't set start point, only current location. So can't plan a walk at a destination to destination.
Missing: many places of interest, shopping etc. Assume commercial premises, restaurants etc added on a subscription basis? Still better than Google Maps.
Routing: doesn't seem to route through scenic back street shortcuts or smaller parks which don't have mapped pathways (perhaps inevitably but still an omission for the walker).

Developer Response

Hi, we are happy to offer some updates on Sidekix. Now there's an easy way to change your starting location--simply tap on "location" and it will give you the option to change your starting point. Re the missing places--Sidekix does not show eveything, only the highest rated attractions and businesses are shown. We would be happy for you to try us again, as we've made lots of improvements, thanks.

Very handy app for finding new places

Gsuslives

Excellent walking app that shows all the cool (and useful!) places on the route you need to go. Used it near my house in Battersea and found a pile of new places that i didn't even know existed just off my usual tracks. Very handy for finding something special in a specific place or even just wandering around.

The future of the navigation app
