iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Regardless of the location, there's bound to be something interesting going on somewhere. AroundNow seeks to provide an easy way of seeing exactly what's going on locally at any time.

Using Twitter as a notification system, AroundNow offers news of interest depending on the area the user happens to reside in at the time. That news can range from all manners of things from entertainment events such as concerts or celebrity spottings to parties or demonstrations. Traffic information such as road works or traffic jams can also be provided as well as something as regular as a good sale in a local store.

As it's partly a social networking app, AroundNow relies upon user participation to truly be great but it's an excellent idea. In a busy and bustling city, it's easy to miss out on something exciting so this app could be the ideal way to get involved in local events.

AroundNow is out now and it's a free download.
