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.

While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
This month was a big one for Android 5.1.1 updates, as you can see from last week's roundup and the barrage of posts on the portal's front page in the recent past. So far we are seeing the lineup of Wear watches, the Nexus 4, Nexus 9, Nexus 10, Nexus Player, and a handfull of others slowly make their way to the latest Android. While waiting around for updates may be fine for casual users, this is XDA; we have OTA download links...
