We've just launched the first major update since the release of our new iPhone app.
Several people have told us that they miss how our old app let you see news near where you're standing right now, so we've brought it back. Just tap the menu button in the upper left, then tap "Near you now". Your iPhone will find your location and show you the latest nearby news.
We've also heard that you'd like to be able to thank your neighbors like you can on the site, so we've added that ability as well. Just tap the "Thank" button underneath any message or comment.
You can get it for free from the App Store right now.
