This application is an extension of Gothamist and its network of cities. Easily check the latest goings on at any city in the istaverse with this application. Simply choose your default city and the latest news will be pulled. Setting will be remembered on startup, and will work offline (for subway reading!)

Features all your favorite Gothamist network sites: Austinist (Austin, TX), Chicagoist (Chicago, IL), DCist (Washington DC), Gothamist (New York City), LAist (Los Angeles, CA), SFist (San Francisco, CA), and Shanghaiist (Shanghai)

Gothamist LLC owns and operates the most popular network of city blogs on the Internet today. Founded in 2003 and led by our NYC flagship site Gothamist, each city covers local news, events, food, and entertainment for an avid audience of young urbanites.

NOTE: This application was designed to be a lightweight way to access all out cities. Dedicated fully featured apps for each city are forthcoming.

Customer Reviews

Great content, but very buggy

This app is little more than a reformatted webpage, so I don't understand why there are so many bugs that have not been fixed in the months that I have been using it. There are the typical crashes, blank pages, etc., but the worst bug, by far, is the loop that it enters into whenever you follow a link. In order to get back to the page you were at before you clicked a link, you have to hit back 20 times because it has redirected you that many times to follow a single link. Very frustrating!

Love it

The app is great. Clean and easy to use. I live in NY and only access the Gothamist so I can't speak to other cities but I've never had a problem with it. I do wish it would remember what city I always choose when I open the app but that's not a big deal. I don't know what's with all the haters but it works great on my iPhone.

love gothamist, hate app

I love the gothamist, and thus I use the app, but only reluctantly. None of the pictures or videos ever load and the app crashes frequently. It doesn't remember the city I am in, so I frequently have to re-select NY. Lastly, if you ever try to use a link, it gets stuck in some crazy internet spasm and you have to hit "back" and "close" about a dozen times just to get back to the main page.

I don't know how hard it is to design an app, but it seems like a lot of the basics are lacking. Yet still, I love the Gothamist!
