1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Does anyone know of an app for the Droid that gives info on local events for specific cities? What I mean is, lets say I wake up Saturday morning and want to do something with the family, I want an app that I can go to that will show me things going on in my city (Houston), such as parades, art festivals, concerts, sporting events, etc, etc. There was a couple on the Blackberry platform (one was named Poynt, and I can't remember the name of the other) but I can't find any for the droid. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

    There's an app called Aloca [I believe that's it] that does something like this. There slogan is "Always be a local." Can't remember if I played around with that one or another one.

    I basically live out in the sticks, and the nearest TOWN isn't what I'd call a city, but it DID come up with some things. I'm sure you'll have much better luck with the Houston area!

    Thanks guys, I ended up with Aloqa. Not exactly what I was looking for, but it'll do. Appreciate the help!
