The brand-new EveryBlock iPhone appApr302012
Big news for us today: we’ve launched a brand-new iPhone app.
Our old one hadn’t been updated in several years and was starting to feel quite outdated. More importantly, it hadn’t been updated to fit our new site focus around posting messages to your neighbors and commenting on the news. The new app is the result of a complete rethinking of how EveryBlock should work in a mobile environment.
Here are the highlights:
- We completely rethought the design to be more beautiful and usable than ever.
- It’s now much, much easier to post messages/questions to your neighbors — and you can include photos. Notice something happening in your neighborhood? Post it to EveryBlock with your phone. And add comments to any other post.
- The app now remembers your followed places, so that you don’t need to enter them each time you use it (which was quite inconvenient).
- You can create an account and edit some of your account settings right from the phone.
Give it a shot and let us know what you think. It’s available now in the App Store, free of charge.
Here’s what it looks like:
