◾Filter your registered addresses with a system of completely customizable tags
◾Send your addresses to friends with a simple click
◾And lots of other things
The idea :
We are all the same!
When we chat with our friends, when we read magazines, or newsletters like MyLittleParis or MerciAlfred, we discover lots of new addresses that we want to try (restaurants, shops, bars, etc.). But in the end, we forget them, because we don’t know where to write them down …
Forget the post-its, the cutouts, the notes all over the place:
Mapstr is the 1st app that allows you to save all your favorite addresses, on a map, in an ultra simple and fast way!
Mapstr has been designed to be super easy and super fast to use!
Want to save a new location? You have the choice :
- Start writing the beginning of their name or address, and we’ll take care of the rest.
- Choose a place right next to you by geolocating yourself
- Better yet, take a picture of the address in a magazine, and Mapstr will recognize it automatically 🙂
- Or, finally, just tap a point on the map, right where you want to write the address!
Then you choose as many tags as you want to classify your addresses (#resto, #burgers, #tendance, #cosy, etc.), and you’re done! You’ve just saved a new location in less than 5 seconds!
Mapstr will then automatically retrieve the photos, phone number, opening hours and all location data, you don’t have to do anything …
Oh yes, go there! 🙂
Why this idea might work (why this startup is successful):
Our users need it and say it!
The public beta was released just over 3 months ago, and we already have over 10,000 users who have registered over 80,000 addresses !!
Over 100 users have already rated the app, with an average of 5/5 on the App Store …
“It’s probably the easiest app in the world, and yet it will go straight to the top 5 of your most used apps.” – THANKS ALFRED
“Mapstr is the app that Google should have created with Maps to save all our favorite places” – GQ
“The app Google forgot to make! Among the hundreds of apps that come out every week, we can bet that this one will quickly become a staple of our smartphone. ” – VANITY FAIR
Mapstr was designed with one goal, being able to record all of your addresses, in an ultra-simple and visual way, and without any limits. We are always listening to our users, and they are the ones who make Mapstr!
Mapstr is the only app allowing:
- register all places, even non-commercial ones (the addresses of your friends, with door codes, the most beautiful viewpoints in the middle of the desert, etc.), in less than 5 seconds!
- to instantly see (and even without connection) all their addresses on a map or in a list
- access all the information about the place (website, timetables, photos, phone, etc.)
- filter them by a system of completely customizable tags
- send their addresses to their friends with a single click
- and many other things
Your business model (How do you make money?):
Mapstr is a free, ad-free app, and will remain so! We will earn money through partners, and premium services that will be offered in the app in the future (in app purchase).
Target region / country:
By definition, Mapstr is global! Our users have already used Mapstr all over the world, with 40% of connections outside France.
Who are your competitors:
Our real competitors are the historical players…. pencil and paper, chisel, notepad … and more modern actors like the camera or iPhone notes.
Some of our users hijacked some apps like Foursquare to register their addresses, but it was very inconvenient … so they imported all of their listings into Mapstr!
What can our readers (investors, early-adopters, curious…) do for you? :
Try Mapstr !!! And tell us what they think, since we love interacting with our users.
