SketchFactor at Work


SketchFactor is a community-driven navigation app for anyone, anywhere, at any time.

Sometimes you ask yourself why everything seems sketchy. Why is there a pile of dead rats on the street? Why are there no lights on this block? Where did everyone go?

If you want to explore or avoid sketchy situations, download SketchFactor.

Here's what we do:

People share what's going on in their community. It's kind of like your best friend telling you where to go (cool, weird sculpture) and where to avoid (empty parking lot). A SketchFactor: 1 might be kind of quirky, a SketchFactor: 5 could be dangerous. We take these experiences, add it to city data, and give you directions to where you need to go.

Here's what you can do:

Before you head out, check out what more than 60,000 of our users are saying. Upvote or downvote stories to share your reaction. Turn categories (weird, dangerous, or protips) on or off to view certain points on the map.

Then, explore the city however you want!

We're available for your iPhone and coming soon to Android.
