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.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
