LocalMind is a great companion app. The service hooks in with Gowalla, FourSquare and Facebook location. The basic concept is you ask questions about locations that people have checked into. You can get info like how long is the wait there, is the food good, is the service good, etc. Anything that you want to know, real live human beings can answer. The app is easy to use and can be an invaluable resource.

"I've seen a TON of different location-based apps...but today I was introduced to one that actually is useful AT SXSW: Localmind." -- Robert Scoble

"I felt that I was using a control panel for the world. Like I had a robot doing my bidding. The coolest feeling that I've never had before." -- User

"It's been a dream of mine to have something like this" -- User

Localmind leverages users existing check-in behaviors such that each time you check in through Foursquare or Facebook (though checking in is not required to use Localmind) you become available to be asked questions about that location. Also, each time you check in you build your expertise in the Localmind community for that location. We then connect you to someone that needs information about that location, or to someone that has information you need. Community based mobile real-time omniscience at your fingertips.

Send a question to any place in the world, ask about anything

Help fellow users by answering questions about places you are currently at, or places you know a lot about.

See questions and answers others have been asking and answering around you, in real-time.

Each time you answer a question, or check-in, or do anything that proves your knowledge about a place, you earn karma points for those areas. Questions that other users have about that place are routed to you, allowing you to use your experience to help fellow users while solidifying your expertise and showing your friends how much you really know.

But remember, with great power comes great responsibility.
