LocalHero 1.0

There are now a huge number of social networks to choose from, and each has been tailored for a particular market. LocalHero's unique selling point is that it can be used to get in touch with people that may be able to help you with a particular problem.

Working like a mixture between Facebook and LinkedIn, LocalHero makes it easy for you and your friends to advertise your skills and areas of expertise, as well as posting requests for help that you may have.

Whether you are looking for advice about somewhere to go to eat, or need help tracking down a reliable electrician, LocalHero provides you with a tool that can be used to quickly and easily contact a large number of people from the comfort of your mobile.

The app includes an integrated chat utility so you can exchange messages with contacts about whatever they are helping you with - or vice versa. In reality, LocalHero offers little that is not already available in Facebook, but its heart is in the right place and it is a well-executed app.
