Local By Us is a hyper-local web and android app based on the concept of a local newspaper by all of us, for all of us. A typical local newspaper has 4 categories of things - News about things that happened, writer Opinions and letters to the editor, upcoming Events in the community and Classified ads for the community. We cover each of these as a tab in the application. It's hyper-local news everywhere, especially places without a local newspaper. The application detects your location and tags posts with the location. The readers get the closest posts to them first, ordered by when they were posted. LocalByUs auto-adjusts based on your location. It currently works for anywhere that can be found on a Google Map Local By Us can be used by -

  3. Local Politicians to inform citizens about what they are doing or will do
  4. People like ourselves interested in community
