ADAM FRANCO, A Middlebury software developer and motorcycle enthusiast, created a program called Curvature back in 2012 that “generates a map highlighting the most twisty roads, all across the world.” After a decade of work, Franco has most of the major roads mapped out in Vermont.

Most of us might think that Google Maps works perfectly well. Sure, sometimes there’s a glitch here or there, especially in areas with spotty service or when the navigation takes you straight through heavy traffic just because it’s the shortest route. But yeah, generally, Google Maps gets lots of us from point A to point B just fine.
What if there was a navigation app that was more than “just fine?” Like what if there was a customizable program that not only directed you to your destination, but did so in a way that was more fun?
