WHAT IS LOCALMIND?
Localmind helps you figure out where to go, what to do, and what's happening around town right now by instantly connecting you to local experts and people out right right now. Find out how long the wait at the restaurant is, what the best hiking trail in your city is, or what set is playing at the Arcade Fire concert right now.

"I've seen a TON of different location-based apps...but today I was introduced to one that actually is useful AT SXSW: Localmind." -- Robert Scoble

"I felt that I was using a control panel for the world. Like I had a robot doing my bidding. The coolest feeling that I've never had before." -- User

"It's been a dream of mine to have something like this" -- User

HOW DOES LOCALMIND WORK?
Localmind leverages users existing check-in behaviors such that each time you check in through Foursquare or Facebook (though checking in is not required to use Localmind) you become available to be asked questions about that location. Also, each time you check in you build your expertise in the Localmind community for that location. We then connect you to someone that needs information about that location, or to someone that has information you need. Community based mobile real-time omniscience at your fingertips.

ASK QUESTIONS
Send a question to any place in the world, ask about anything

ANSWER QUESTIONS
Help fellow users by answering questions about places you are currently at, or places you know a lot about.

SEE LOCAL ACTIVITY
See questions and answers others have been asking and answering around you, in real-time.

SHOW OFF YOUR KNOWLEDGE
Each time you answer a question, or check-in, or do anything that proves your knowledge about a place, you earn karma points for those areas. Questions that other users have about that place are routed to you, allowing you to use your experience to help fellow users while solidifying your expertise and showing your friends how much you really know.

HAVE FUN!

What's New

Version 2.1 (Mar 08, 2012)

This is a special release just in time for SXSW! Two new features will activate while in the Austin area:

1. Find all of the parties and special events happening in Austin right now. Look for the new teal markers to connect to people on the ground wherever you're headed. Find out what's happening inside, where the best drinks are, where the best free stuff is, or anything else you want to know. Omniscience delivered.

2. Follow the {RV}IP Karaoke Lounge as it roves around Austin delivering face-melting good times. Look for the special {RV}IP marker (it'll be hard to miss) to find its current location day and night.

Version 2.0 (Feb 15, 2012)

The biggest update in the history of Localmind is here!

You can now get answers to questions about any location, anywhere, anytime, by tapping into the rich expertise of Localmind users in your city or around the world! Beyond simply asking about a specific place (e.g. restaurant, bar, etc.), you can now find out what the best hiking trail in your city is, where the cheapest parking downtown is, and where to take your date on Friday night. Use the map to pick the part of town you're interested in, type your question, and local experts in that area — and topic, if you choose one — will answer in real-time. Go ahead, try it out!

What else is new?
1. Pass on questions that you'd rather not answer -- simply tap the "Pass" button.
2. Jump to anyplace in the world -- tap the search icon at the top left of the map.
3. If you haven't seen the new profile tab, you're missing out. Update your profile picture, write a short bio, and much more.

Version 1.8 (Jan 26, 2012)

1. A totally revamped profile! Localmind is all about community, so show off your stuff! The new profile highlights each user's:
- Expert places, areas, and categories
- Friends who use Localmind
- A short bio
- Recent activity
On your own profile, you can change your photo, add a bio about yourself, and browse profiles of other Localmind users to see just who knows what about what.

This next item is a very special feature just for Localmind users in the San Francisco Bay Area. We're so excited to turn it on worldwide, but, as they say, good things come to those who wait . . .

Version 1.7 (Nov 19, 2011)

Meet the new Localmind! What's new? A lot!

1. "Answers" tab: We heard that you want want answers, but don't always want to ask a question. Now you can browse the new Answers tab to see questions asked in your neighborhood or anywhere else around the world, simply by panning and zooming the map.
2. An explanation of why you received a question: Ever get a Localmind question, and wonder why you got it? Not any more. From now on, every time you receive a question, we'll explain why Localmind sent it to you.
3. More insight into local experts: We heard that you found Localmind experts around your city extremely helpful, but wanted to know more about who these experts were. We (inadvertantly) did a great job hiding this information in previous releases. No more! Tap a marker on the map to see that venue's experts.
4. So much more! Improved performance, new privacy settings, a refreshed new look, and innumerable improvements.

Enjoy!
