EveryBlock, a place where people can discuss their local neighborhood news has recently rebooted their free iPhone app. It now includes many of the core features already available on the www.everyblock.com website.
Originally released in 2009, the EveryBlock app now offers users an easier interface to read, create, and share content with their neighbors in real time. In doing so, users will see their preferred news and neighborhood settings reflected in the app.
EveryBlock Version 2.0 includes the ability to post messages, questions, and photos. In addition, you are now able to add comments to other posts. Finally, the app now remembers your followed places, so you don’t need to enter them each time.
Currently, EveryBlock is available in 16 cities: Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle and Washington, D.C.
According to Brian Addison, president of EveryBlock:
Our refreshed iPhone app makes it much easier for EveryBlock users to connect around their neighborhood news as it happens, whether posting a message to inform others or asking a question about something they’ve just seen. It’s a natural next step that has us more encouraged than ever about our growth potential.
EveryBlock 2.0 is available now in the App Store.
