Our app of the day is an app created by architects and it is called the Buildings Android app. If you are passionate about structures and buildings and want your own mobile encyclopedia, then this is the perfect Android app for you. It boasts a nice set of useful features and what is more, it is free!
The interface of the Buildings app has a great design and breezes elegance. It is clear, intuitive and it is focused on the genius and beauty of the surrounding architecture of the structures. The database of the app is currently comprised of over 40.000 buildings that were assembled from users and architects from all over the globe.
You can also connect with Facebook and register an account. It is a very useful feature for when you want to add more photos or your own comments. Recently added and featured buildings are displayed by the homepage so don’t worry that you won’t have something new to browse every day. By using the “Nearby” button, you can learn a lot more about the surrounding places.
Moreover, general mobile networks are used by the app in order to pinpoint your location. Buildings can be filtered by their distance from you as well as status (for example – under construction) and type (residential, commercial). All sorts of useful information such as descriptions, multiple photos, comments, year constructed is displayed by the pages of the buildings.
All in all, the Buildings Android app is the perfect tool for students and architecture enthusiasts. Be sure to check it out here!
