With this creative iPhone app you can get all the latest info on what’s happening around the world from people who are actually there using Localmind.
The overall idea for this app is for users to check-in through either Foursquare, Gowalla or Facebook and then once inside you can look for other Localmind users anywhere in the world. Once you’ve found a user in a place that you’re interested in you can ask them for information.
Once you’ve checked in via one of the various social sites this app throws you straight into the action. Now this would normally make things confusing but in this case anyone who has used the primary iPhone maps app will be half way there. The main screen opens into a map of your local area where you are shown as a blue dot and other users on Localmind will be shown as a yellow marker. To further simplify local navigation and searching there are two buttons at the top of the screen; one centers you on your current location and the other shows you other Localminders in your local area (up to 25km).
The whole point of using this app is to ask or answer questions and this process been made very quick and easy. Ask your questions by simply tapping on the yellow Localmind marker of someone in a location that you’re interested in, tap ‘Ask’ and then ask away. The bottom of the screen is the main navigation area and lets you view the questions you have asked and questions users have sent you as well as updating your profile and returning to the main map screen.
