This app senses which U.S. city you’re in—there are 150 included so far—and points you to nearby treks, from the Boston Freedom Trail to lesser-known routes. The catch? As you move along, you’re asked to complete fun challenges, like “write a description of how spicy your food is” or “snap a picture of the Liberty Bell,” leaving you with digital “souvenirs” for your memory bank. As reward, you can also unlock on-the-spot treasures like discounted ice cream cones, or collect points toward bigger prizes such as an iPad.

Cost: Free.
