Teleport – An App That Helps You Find the Best Place to Live

Results from Teleport

Answer a couple of questions about the things that are important to you and the free app Teleport will cough out a ranked list of cities that best fit your needs. It doesn’t end there – Teleport gives you a sidebar with adjustable settings so you can fine-tune the selection.

Once you’ve settled on a couple of top picks Teleport gives you a ready-made to-do list for job hunting, packing and anything else you might need in order to make a leap to a new city.

The list that Teleport gave me was right on the money for the criteria I selected. But it missed the mark entirely for cities that “feel right” for my soul. Only one city, Boulder Colorado, felt like a place I might want to live (as opposed to visit.)

That said, I think Teleport is worth trying – and worth watching for future development.
