Nextdoor is an app that privately connects you with your neighborhood. It's designed to keep neighbors connected by allowing them to send urgent alerts about suspicious activity, share a photo of a lost pet, warn neighbors about road construction, and more.

“Nextdoor has become the lifeline to the neighborhood. Neighbors rely on Nextdoor for straightforward things like finding a babysitter, to personal things like finding a lost pet, to critical things like hearing about a rash of break­ins,” said Nirav Tolia, Co­Founder and CEO of Nextdoor, in a press release.

Knowing what’s going on in the world at large is certainly useful. Sometimes though, it’s more important to know what’s going on across the street instead of what’s going on across the globe. Recognizing that, the EveryBlock app seeks to fill that local news niche and with its the new update it is hoping to fill that niche even better.

The 2.0 update adds a host of new community features bringing the app more in line with the EveryBlock website. Users can now more easily connect to their neighborhoods by choosing the specific locations they want their news to come from all the way down to the block level. Users can become citizen journalists and share breaking news and photos of events as they unfold. Using the app, users can also send questions to their neighbors or even just start a conversation in real time.

Be aware that currently EveryBlock is only available in the following 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. The updated EveryBlock app is available now for free on the App Store.
