What makes us different?

Personalised Tips

Everyone’s looking to discover something different in a city, which is why we get borderline creepy in our attempts to get to know your interests, before making customised suggestions. But don’t worry, we ensure that your data is absolutely secure.

Local Gems

If you like the idea of giving big global chains the middle finger, you’ll love getting connected with local and independent businesses, so you can show some appreciation for the hardworking and characterful little guy.

Explore on Your Terms

Unshackle yourself from lacklustre attractions and relish in a new sense of independence. KOMPAS is everything you need to explore your own city in your pocket, letting you be as picky as you want with your time and money.

The Secret Workings Behind KOMPAS

Well, we say ‘secret’, but really, we’re actually pretty open about how our app works. Born out of a desire to improve upon the boring old model of impersonal city guides, we set out to create a dynamic app that would get to know its users’ interests and needs before blurting out any old suggestions.

That’s why we use machine learning and cognitive algorithms to target suggestions based on what you’ll actually enjoy, rather than what the ‘average’ person is into. We then compacted all that clever tech into a sleek and accessible app that you can take with you on all your adventures!
