How far to great architecture? There’s an app for that….


Despite not yet jumping on the iPhone bandwagon, I recently acquired an iPod touch and have been downloading applications—aka apps—like Apple is paying me to do so. But a new app from 29GPS (via ArchDaily), has me rethinking my cell service. The 29GPS Architecture app offers a daily selection of architecture and tells you how far you are from it.

Selections are shows with photos and video, as well as radar to indicate your distance from the building, and a Google Map pinpointing its locale. Even better, it's available for download for free! More, including a video showing the app features, is available on 29GPS's web site.

AN UPDATE: After successfully downloading the app and playing around a bit, it seems what it does, instead of generating a list of how close you are to nearest great architecture is to your location, it instead lists a variety of well-known spaces and then calculates your distance from them.
