Wanderlust Takes Locative Media Beyond The Check-In

Wanderlust Takes Locative Media Beyond The Check-In

Badges, check-ins and deals have become common place value propositions for users of location-based applications. Proving that this medium is evolving, Wanderlust takes the art of the aimless walk to new heights, with location-based storytelling. Pop-Up City reports:

As the location itself plays an important role in the story, this application intensifies the experience of the story. The story itself will tell you were to go next to enjoy the next episode of the story. According to UrbanTick, Wanderlust is like location type hopping following a storyboard. The makers of Wanderlust have invited a couple of known writers such as Naomi Alderman and Tom Chatfield to come up with the first stories. Others can also hand in their stories and share these on the Wanderlust platform to enrich it with a small touch of location.

Wanderlust recently released a SXSW-themed story, which may show how brands can extend the life of some of their events and guerrilla marketing.
