Like Localmouth, they’re aggregating content from a number of local information providers to provide guides to individual places.
Currently, the information they’re aggregating includes business listings from City’sBest and CityGuide, news from Topix, weather from WeatherBug, events from CityGuide, movies from Moviefone, photos from Flickr and videos from Truveo. They also feature their own maps and gas price information.
It looks like that’s just the beginning, though. In their developer blog they’re appealing for anyone with local content feeds to get in touch.
The interface is quite nicely done, serving the page outline first and serving the content via what are presumably AJAX updates later. As they’ve also opted to pack everything onto a single page, the result is that the user gets a big hit of information with one page load, without that page having a painfully long load time. It’s an interesting way of doing things.
So far they don’t seem to have any content for the UK. I wonder if they could use a UK-based partner ;-)
