Sherpa is a marquee app on the T-Mobile myTouch3g, but it’s now available in the United States Android Market for other phones as well. T-Mobile G1 owners can also take a crack at Sherpa, which tracks and learns a user’s tendencies. The location-awareness app is equipped with an adaptive learning feature that uses likes and dislikes to give recommendations and reminders about places to visit. Previously seen as Geodelic, the app works to make points of interest apps more intuitive.
Sherpa is made further unique because locations and establishments are displayed on a carousel. Swipe left and right to see nearby attractions and stores that fit within the following categories: Arts & Culture, Banks, Bars & Nightclubs, Cafes & Coffee Shops, Dining, Establishments, Getting Around, Groceries & Essentials, In a Pinch, Kids & Pets, Looking good, Movies & Entertainment, On Vacation, Quick Bites, Recreation, and Shopping.
Here is a video demo of Sherpa running on a T-Mobile G1.
