Wanderlust, an experimental mobile storytelling platform
Wanderlust is a new way to tell location-based stories on smartphones from Six to Start. Instead of readers having to be in specific physical locations (like setting a Sherlock Holmes story in Baker Street, London), Wanderlust sets stories in classes of location. Act 1 might be in any cafe in the world, Act 2 in any museum, Act 3 in any bar. It's more like atmosphere-based storytelling.

We've got some great stories online right now, from award-winning authors like Naomi Alderman, Tom Chatfield, and Andrea Phillips, and we've even got a spy thriller written for SXSW (unsurprisingly, a homage to North by Northwest).

It's not a iPhone or Android native app, so it works on any smartphone; it's powered by JQuery Mobile, Foursquare, and Twitter. And if you'd like to write something, let us know!
