Austin (News, Events, and Jobs)

By Ringful LLC

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


This application brings you the latest local news, sports, events, and jobs from the city of Austin Texas. The application aggregates updates from local newspapers, TV / radio stations, blogs, community web sites, event sites, and major job boards. It is updated throughout the day at every 10-15 minutes. You can share any update / story directly with your Facebook friends via Facebook Connect, and / or email the story to anyone. You can also save any story for later use.

When you quit the app (or interrupted by a phone call), the app remembers your last section, and loads that section when you starts the next time. That saves you time if you are only interested in one section of updates at most of the time.

This app is indispensable for Austinites, as well as anyone who visits the great city of Austin, Texas!

2. Touch any of the story to see its details. Touch the "Go to full article" link to read the full article from its source.

3. When you are reading a story, use the Action button at the top right to perform actions like "Share Story on Facebook", "Email the story", "Open story in Safari Browser".
