This application will calculate daily Geohash coordinates on your iPhone. Geohashing is a Spontaneous Adventure Generator, brought to you by the xkcd webcomic, at For more information, visit, or check out this application's website.

Geohash now has the capability of mapping the location for your current graticule as well as the graticules immediately to the north, south, east, and west of your current location!

Thanks to Scott Pettigrew for help with the hash algorithm, and, of course, thanks to for a great comic (and...err...the icons too!).

Customer Reviews

1.51 update got things rolling again

Now app is able to pick up the market data and calculate coordinates again!

To reviewer who mentioned the 'scuba trips', that's par for course in geohashing; not every grid will have accessible coordinates every day. Hit the 'East' button on those days if you're on the Left Coast ;)

just a tiny request... update

ok. it's been nearly six months since I first wrote a review with a tiny request (see below). after 6 months of not being able to use it due to being sent into the waters of the bay or ocean, I'm deleting this app.

this app rocks! my only request is that you tweak it so that those of us on the coast aren't sent on scuba diving trips. not that I wouldn't mind a swim in the pacific, just not everyday. fix this and get the last star! =~D

Good app & suggestion

Great, useful application. However, I would suggest adding the ability to plot in the ordinal directions. Denver sits at the intersection of four graticules, and I live in the southwest one. It would be helpful to be able to "Map Northeast." Thanks!
