See points of interest and get details on a handy map.
Wikify on Apple TV brings local points of interest to your fingertips. Move around the map, see locations pinned, and then click any one for further information including photos, descriptions, and QR code that works with The Arrow app for your mobile device.
View the pins and details. You can easily move around the map and zoom in or out for a better view. Browse through the pins to see what is nearby and then click any one for further location details. If you download The Arrow app to your iPhone, you can scan the provided QR code and pop it right into that app for navigation.
