Attention, all residents of metropolitan areas: your previous methods of finding the hip new spot for drinks, the latest news in your neighborhood, and upcoming events are now completely obsolete. SPUN: City News hopes to be your one-stop feed for all things about the city you're in, and it does a hell of a job.
While the app is currently only live in a handful of cities (New York, Boston, DC, Philly, Miami, Chicago, Austin, Portand, Seattle, Los Angeles, and good old San Francisco), SPUN is the first true mobile attempt at organizing the local content we all normally cull from the web into one attractive package. Navigating the blogosphere from sources like Gawker Media, Gothamist, the Huffington Post, and local papers, news and cultural stories are framed in the app, and given a location on a map so you can determine where the story is in relation to you.
You can also turn on notifications to be reminded when you're near a story that you marked as a favorite. To put it another way, when you're seeking a deep-fried calzone that you've just read about, you'll be reminded once you're in close proximity to greasy-goodness. Truly, this is a brave new and delicious world.
SPUN is only in its early days but if it holds up as promised (new cities are promised by Christmas), this could be a game-changer.
