The story of ForenSeek, the true crime / mystery app, begins in the living room of a suburban house in Western Finland in the early 1990s.
Sitting on the living room couch, Teemu, one of the creators of the app, used to read countless books about unsolved mysteries during the days of his youth. UFOs, ghosts, unsolved murders – they all made the Northern winds whisper secrets into his ear, and he was hooked for life.
Meanwhile Sami, the other part of the duo who would go on to create ForenSeek, was out in the world already, making a name for himself as a sales manager, specializing in marketing. He was also involved in the early
Decades went by, until finally the two brothers, Sami and Teemu, decided to combine their respective areas of expertise (mysteries and sales). They entered into a partnership with the software house Vertics Oy, and created
ForenSeek, an app that takes you on tours to the darker side of history. Crime scenes, locations of mysterious events and notorious historical incidents – you name it, and there’s most likely a tour under that theme in ForenSeek.
When you open the app, it shows you your nearest locations. You choose one, and the app opens up a map, showing YOU as a blue dot, and the DESTINATION as a red tag. Following the map on the app screen, you make your way to the destination. Once you’ve reached it, the app recognizes this, and tells you the full tale of what happened there.
If you’re not big on travelling, worry not – ForenSeek serves ”couch travellers” as well, as it allows you to study some locations without actually, physically making your way to them.
The app is available for both iPhones and android phones.
ForenSeek has been featured on Radio Rock, Iltalehti (Finland’s biggest newspaper), Radio SuomiRock, and many other media outlets.
