WHERE Update Encourages User-Generated Content

WHERE, a popular location-based app that helps users find cheap gas prices, movie showtimes, and more, has been recently updated.  Now, rather than simply giving you relevant information, they have made it possible to add your own content.  For instance, if you arrive at a gas station and find the price to be different than expected, you can submit your own finding.  Show up at an address expecting some good Mexican food only to find they’ve moved?  Let WHERE know!

WHERE V1.8.6 is available (for free) today in the Android Market.  According to their blog, there are four changes/improvements that are meant to foster a community spirit.

  1. WHERE reviews button – You can now easily rate or read reviews about local restaurants and businesses with the click of a button.
  2. “Flag Venue Incorrect” option – A convenient link now lets you easily flag a venue if you notice any incorrect information, enhancing the quality of our real time information.
  3. “Report a Price” gas feature – Spot a change in price at your local gas station? Share your findings with other users.
  4. Expanding avatars – Take a better look at the people in your area. WHEREwall users can now zoom in on other users’ avatar pictures.
