Wanderous - explore your world

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Wanderous is a navigation app that creates routes optimized for adventure.
As you would expect, routes created in Wanderous start and end where you specify. Here's the twist: during your journey the routes intentionally wander to one or more interesting, unique, or notable Spots of your choosing.
Spots can include scenic parks, notable landmarks, historical sites, bustling city corridors, breathtaking vistas, and entertaining public attractions.
For locals and travelers. Get outside and take the first step. A step towards the unknown. Towards new experience. Towards adventure.
~ Extra time on the weekend? Plan an expedition around your neighborhood or town. Plant flags to claim each Spot you explore. You'll be amazed at the number of interesting things which surround you that you never knew were there.
~ Traveling in a new city? Get off of the standard tourist haunts and explore like a local! There's so much more to every city than what you'll find in a guidebook.
~ Boring walking or driving commute? Visit a unique place along the way. Add a bit of wonder and excitement back into your everyday life.
-- Discover Interesting Places: Wanderous is like a treasure map revealing thousands of amazing Spots, not just in large cities but in smaller towns as well! Spots in Wanderous are 100% unique and are not available in any other app or website.
-- Start an Expedition: Create a route that visits one or more Spots of your choosing. Both walking and driving routes are supported. Wanderous also integrates beautifully with the iOS 6 Maps.app.
-- Track Where you Go : Wanderous lays virtual breadcrumbs as you move around, keeping track of what territory you have covered and what areas you have yet to explore. View all unexplored areas as a fog overlay on the map.
Note: Spots have only been determined in the U.S. Future versions will support more and more countries. (I know: this sucks. I wish I could support the entire world on day one but it is just not feasible. I'm working on it!)

Just what i was looking for!
I've been looking for an app like this for a long time. Its such a simple idea but no one seems to have picked it up - show wherever you've been on a map. Adding of points of interest is spot on and great for urban exploration. Too bad this app doesnt seem to get enough support from the users.
Love it so far
Great app so far in Seattle (found this through an Urban Daddy posting). Please make a list view w/ location filters for 'type' in future editions!
This app is a great concept. It's just a shame it doesn't work. It keeps giving an error message about a key instead of planning a route. But there's no mention of a key in the app description in the App Store. There's also no key at the website the error message directs me to
