If you are new to the app, just take your time and follow the step-by-step instructions that appear on your device screen. If you have any problems doing that, simply join this Facebook group and ask for help.
So you can see how you are progressing using the app, we are going to invite you to take a little ‘virtual visit’ to popular Botanical Gardens in Australia – one in each State and Territory.
By entering 3 words in the following format – word.word.word (such as the first one, steps.part.flame) the app will immediately jump you to a square that permanently has that 3-word name.
In the bottom RH corner of your device’s screen, you’ll see a globe. Clicking back and forth on that globe will toggle a flat map, as you normally see in a street directory – or a terrain map as if you were looking out the window of a plane.
Therefore, steps.part.flame will be a spot close to a “sundial in Brisbane”.
We suggest you write your answers down as you go. We reckon you’ll get the hang of how “What3Words” works by doing this little exercise. Frankly, it’s only the tip of the iceberg. We hope it will make you keen to discover other ways the app could improve your life. Here are the eight clues:
steps.part.flame – Name of a sundial in Brisbane
audio.rash.pens – Some just say ‘water lily pond’ in Sydney
towers.insect.later – Lookout – it’s a long drop in Canberra
snaps.cloak.helps – Really!!! A volcano in Melbourne!
full.visions.scatter – A slice of the Orient in Hobart
spends.sing.porch – A donkey might rest here in Adelaide
spray.jams.wanted – Looks like the double helix molecule in Perth
goat.coiling.dream – Calming waters run here in Darwin
How did you go? Do you think you got all eight answers correct?
