App Spotlight: Buildings

One of the most awesome things about having a smartphone is the ability to view and track your location. Along with this comes some awesome things that have to do with location-based networking, such as Foursquare and Gowalla. One app that does something we really don’t see to often is Buildings.

Buildings is an architecture app that allows you to view, explore, and rate different architecture in your area. Wherever you are, the app will discover the nearest architecture, and before you know it you’re spiraling into a community with others that share the same passion, and can explore and talk about the world around them. Some of the Buildings’ main features are the following:

– Find and get directions to interesting architecture nearby

– See daily featured buildings around the world

– Search our whole directory of 40k+ buildings

– Comment on, check-in and share notable architecture

I may not be an architecture junkie, but my experience with this app has been a good one so far. It has a clean UI, performs smoothly, and I haven’t encountered any force closes. The app’s directory is full of unique and interesting buildings, and if you enjoy architecture it’s definitely something to check out. Whether architecture is your thing, or you just enjoy touring and exploring your are, check out Buildings in the Android Market.
