In this update, we rewrote the Apple Watch app from scratch in SwiftUI and made these improvements:
- The search UI (previously available only via force touch which is no longer supported on newer Apple Watch series) is now easily accessible by swiping down on the start screen.
- In place lists, you can swipe left to (un)favorite a place
- We added a complication that reflects the last viewed state from the iPhone. So it opens the watch app with the place or category most recently viewed on iPhone. This simulates Handoff which is only available in the other direction (from Watch to iPhone, or from iOS to iOS or Mac).
We also updated the supported micromobility providers and added a few new ones:
The Augmented Reality (AR) view for shared bikes and scooters has been improved, making it easier than ever to locate available nearby vehicles.
Finally, we made several stability and performance improvements as well as bug fixes. Download the Where To? 12.6 update from the App Store.
In Where To? 12.5.1, the weather details (long-press on the map weather icon) now show weather warnings.
We also support an additional 23 shared scooter and bicycle providers:
The Where To? 12.5.1 update also contains several small improvements and bug fixes.
In this update, we modernized the storage layer that keeps track of favorites and collections. We’re now using CloudKit instead of the iCloud key/value store. This is future-proof and gives you more room to save places (iCloud key/value store is limited to 1 MB per app).
We also added App Shortcuts, introduced in iOS 16. This enables the Siri shortcut “Search nearby using Where To?” (or localized variants). No prior configuration needed.
For directions, Where To? now supports the Korean navigation apps Naver and 카카오내비 (Kakao Navi).
We also deliver a big expansion to our micromobility offerings:

The Where To? 12.5 update also contains numerous small improvements and bug fixes.
New in Where To? 12.4, we added live weather information to the map. In the corner of the map, the current temperature and weather conditions for the location on the map are displayed. By long-pressing, a forecast for the next hours can be displayed:
Live weather requires iOS 16 and can be disabled in the settings if needed.
Also new in 12.4, we added the micromobility providers
As usual, the Where To? 12.4 update also comes with the latest bug fixes and stability improvements.
In Where To? 12.3, we added 30 additional micromobility providers:
With these additions, we now support a total of 181 shared bike and scooter providers worldwide.
In the Where To? 12.3 update we also fixed issues involving subscriptions and the new Where To? PRO perpetual license.
In Where To? 12.2, we added several more micromobility providers:
We also expanded city coverage of the existing providers. And in terms of public transport directions, we now support moBiel (🇩🇪) and libéA (🇫🇷).
Pay once, use forever: In addition to a subscription, Where To? PRO is now also available as a perpetual license.
The Where To? 12.2 update also comes with performance and stability improvements.
By popular request, we added a new “Shared Bikes & Scooters” category under “Travel & Transportation” in this update. When selecting it, you will be shown all nearby bikes & scooters from multiple providers.
We also added 10 more providers in Germany, the US, the UK, New Zealand, France, and Argentina (Call a Bike, MVG Rad, Sigo, StadtRad Lüneburg, Veoride, Cycle Hire Slough, Mobi Bikes, Blip, Zoov, Mi bici tu bici). If you’re missing a provider in your city, please let us know!
The Where To? 12.1 update also fixes Voice Over issues and comes with other bugfixes and stability improvements.
Where To? 12 is all about micromobility: Select a destination and go there using shared bikes, scooters and e-mopeds. It’s spring time in the northern hemisphere – time to leave the car at home and ride to your destination the green way!
In its bicycle directions view, Where To? 12 now lets you choose “Own Bike” or one of the available providers for your city. More than 120 bike & scooter providers are supported worldwide, serving 700+ cities in 47 countries. Be it Bird, Tier, nextbike or any other, just select a provider and the nearby vehicles and return locations are shown on the map. The nearest bike or scooter is selected automatically. Feel free to pick a different one according to your needs. Your complete route, consisting of walking and riding parts, is calculated, including an estimate of the total duration.
Like the convenience of electric bikes & scooters? The battery range of electric vehicles is displayed* and marked in red if the range is too short for your planned trip. On station-based systems, the number of available bikes or free docks per station is displayed. For bigger shopping tours, Where To? also integrates cargo bicycles and e-mopeds.
Booking the bike or scooter couldn’t be easier: With a single tap, the third party micromobility app is launched or installed.
Shared bikes and scooters are a great way to get hassle- and emission-free from A to B. With so many providers on the market, it just can be a bit overwhelming to select the right service – especially when you’re out of your home town. Where To? now makes it super-convenient to hop on the next scooter or bike – no matter which brand.
Also in the v12 update: we now support the “Bike Citizens” app for bicycle directions and tracking.

News from Streets, our Street View browser app: With indoor 360° panoramas becoming more and more popular, some users find it hard to focus just on the street view. Streets 4.7 addresses this with a new option “Prefer outside panoramas”. When enabled, placing a pin or moving the mini map searches for outside street view panoramas primarily and resorts to indoor panoramas only if there’s no nearby street imagery.
The update also improves “Open in Streets”. The share sheet extension considerably expands the supported apps. You can now view nearby panoramas in Streets from apps like Yelp, Waze or Google Maps.
Streets 4.7 now requires iOS 12.0 or newer.
We hope you like the Streets 4.7 update and are always grateful for your ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ reviews!
In Where To? 11.3 we added COVID-19 vaccination sites. Some countries keep such locations secret (for whatever strange reason), so we’re dependent on publicly available information. If you find any incorrect or missing information (also for COVID testing sites and any other category), please keep your edit suggestions coming! To suggest new locations, drop a new pin by long-pressing on the map and use the context menu (“Suggest New Place”) or scroll down in the list view. Let’s work together and share our collective wisdom!
