Geohashing lets you explore your environment at a randomly generated location, each day!

Features:
* Calculate the geohash for any location and date
* Show the nearest geohash, instead of that of your current graticule
* Pin locations to the start screen - the tiles are updated with map images and distance information
* Send the geohash to the Maps app for navigation instructions
* Open source!

What is geohashing? Geohashing is an algorithm that generates a random location in your general area each day, based on the Dow Jones of that day (so each day it's a surprise where it lands).
The location is the same for all people in that area, so it's also a great way to meet new people who are also interested in geohashing.
You can also find more information at http://wiki.xkcd.com/geohashing/Main_Page.

Changes in version 1.1.0.0:
* Localization - for now, only English and German (contribute to add your own language!)
* Bugfixes

    Great for getting there, but once you get close, it's not quite as effective. Might take restarting the app or going a larger distance away to recognize minute changes.
