Keep In Touch With Fellow Androiders on Android Town

There are a number of social community apps that started life as web applications and have now gained mobile counterparts.  Here’s one that’s starting life as a mobile application – specifically for Android.

Developed by XDA forum member LuftWalk, Android Town is a location based mobile social community app.  It’s in it’s early stages so number of users is small, but wide spread.

Features of the app include being able to communicate with fellow users nearby either by messaging, sending a picture, adding as a friend or blocking.

The biggest radius so far is approximately 5000 KM or 3100 miles, and most of the users are in Europe, although US usage is on the rise.

Future development suggestions include adding content from social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Flickr and also creating a public chat channel in which all users can partake.

Android Town is available to download for free in the Market.

To provide feedback, and for more information, check out the application thread.

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...

Swappa’s New App Helps You Value Your Device

There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets.
