sitegeist

If you're like me, you like to know things about your location. Sure, most of the crap you want to know is trivial, but it's still fun -- and that's basically the entire idea behind a very cool new app called Sitegeist. In a nutshell, this app gives you all sorts of different info about your current location, including:

  • Average age and sex of the town's residents
  • Average number of children per household
  • Average income and political contributions
  • Weather - current conditions, average temps, record temps
  • Fun things to do
  • Median age of homes, median home value, and average rent
  • ...and more

Not only does the app provide some really useful information, but it looks damn good doing it. It uses the Android design guidelines and the Holo dark theme, but each category (People, Weather, Fun, History, Housing) features its own unique colors scheme. Pretty.

Sitegeist is a free app, and definitely one worth installing - hit the widget to check it out.

    You should add that it does so beautifully to the title.

    It only has data for America. Not complaining just pointing out for international readers.

    Looks quite pretty. I hope Canadian locations are added in the near future!

    useless in europe

    "Sorry, data for your location could not be found" - how useful... not...

    Why did you put 5 stars as the market rating when it's 4.2 ?

    • Steve

      AppBrain widgets take long to load and even longer to update, so the score is probably outdated. If it wasn't for the other information they provided, I wouldn't know why AP actually bothers using them :/

      • Nick Coad

        Presumably they (AndroidPolice) have a financial incentive for using them, advertising revenue or something.

  • a-duh

    No data in Canada. Should be restricted to US downloads until other regions actually have info.

  • needa

    seems like info i should get through google now.
