This is a lonely planet that we live on. I mean there’s no other planet than Earth where life is present, at least for the time being. So the planet Earth must be feeling very lonely, right! There’s nobody she can talk to and everything’s always the same as it was million years ago. But take a look at it closely and you’ll find hundreds of different cultures all merged into this one sphere of land. They’re separated by boundaries you can say but can you control the wind blowing from one place to another! Each and every colour of the universe can be found here. All we have to do is get up and start exploring new places. But if there’s so much to explore, there’s much more to do and it’s really hard to find time to get to know other cultures around the world. Well, now you have the perfect opportunity!


I am talking about the latest iOS app called WAYFARE that has been developed by SK planet. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 7.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone Plus.

WAYFARE is a fun way to interact with other people across the globe and get to know their cultures. But you won’t be visiting the most famous monuments or historical building of that particular place which you can find thousand photos of on internet. You’ll be taking an insight into the life of another person who belongs to a different culture and place. He/she will be your guide and vice-versa. So it’s a give and take. All you have to do is sign-up for the app.

The guide you’ll be assigned will be a part of your life for the next one week and after that, next one comes. So you have one full week to get to know each other and to make sure that the things proceed smoothly, some photo-missions will be given to you and your guide on a daily basis. These missions are aimed at getting the ‘unknown’ out of you which can be about your food, traditions or anything that reflects your culture and society. But you’re not bound by these missions as you have a chat messenger and you can talk to your guide anytime you want. If you two don’t speak the same language, just tap the message and tap the translate option and you’ve encoded it!


Though the idea is very good on paper, the reality is a bit different. Sometimes, your guide doesn’t respond on time and you have to wait for him/her to reply to your messages. He/she might not be interested anymore and therefore you have to wait for the next guide and hope he/she’s worth your time. But if you get hooked with the right guide, you’ve got a lot to do for the week. So prepare yourself for this amazing journey which is absolutely free in the App Store.

Pros: amazing concept; meet new people; daily photo-missions; chat with your guides; free.

Cons: sometimes your guide doesn’t respond quickly.
