Scott Kendall Wants To Turn Commuting Into A Game [PSFK SEATTLE]
quadstreaker is a mobile app that incentivizes users to explore new areas within their city.
Can a mobile app encourage urban exploration? That’s premise of Scott Kendall’s app quadstreaker, a location-based iOS app that creates a colorful, easy to follow visual history of a user’s movement over time. The app divides the world into ‘Quads’ – small square units that fill in with colors as users explore new areas – encouraging users to get out of their comfort zones and traverse unfamiliar surroundings.
The app aims to gamify a user’s commute by rewarding them with points and digital accessories for their in-app avatar when they explore a new area.
