After several months of work, Awespot is finally becoming an open beta for everyone to play with.
And it comes with a big update: you can now search for spots (which was a major lack, now fixed).
Give it a try and let us know (by mail or in the comments) what you think of it!

After a quiet time, Awespot comes fresh new again.
A lot of new features are planned, but for today it’s an update of the global page design.
Have a look: Awespot.
After much work, the process of adding a new spot has been changed. It’s now simple and fast, you can do it in less than 10 seconds!
- First, make sure you’re logged in
- Click Add a spot on the home page
- Type the name of the spot and hit Search
- If the spot doesn’t already exist, you can either:
- Create it from scratch (i.e. set the position on the map yourself)
- Or import a wikipedia article (only if the search found some results on Wikipedia)
So if I want to add the Eiffel Tower for example, I just have to search it and click Import from Wikipedia and that’s it!
Look, there’s even an auto-completion to correct spelling mistakes:
Here is what it looks like for a search:
I am proud to present a brand new release including the following:
You now have a map of where you’ve been on your profile page!
Except that, here are the bugfixes:
- Layout improved on the Explore page.
- When adding a tag, the page now refreshes to show the changes (instead of a message box).
- Fixed a bug that showed “1+” instead of “+1″ when voting for a spot.
- Fixed a UI bug of the background when scrolling down.
You can let me know of anything in the comments or by email.
If you forgot your Awespot password, just go to the Forgotten password page, you’ll be able to change it using your email account.
I also improved the global page layout using CSS3
