Cynthia Morgan is a technologist, a glassist, a sculptor and a writer. She writes about all of these things and more at her blog, appropriately called Cynthia Morgan: My Life, My Glass . . . and other things.
In a recent post she assembled a fairly comprehensive list of Portland related iPhone applications, with her reviews:
iPhone gets downright neighborly.
We’ve been so busy using smartphones to weave ourselves into the virtual community, we may not have noticed that the real world has quietly joined the party. Local apps are quickly becoming some of the most realtime, on-the-ground useful of all.
Glassland (AKA Portland) is well-known as a mobile town and has a rich inventory of local apps, but I’d be willing to bet your town (or at least your state) has at least a few of its own.
I found it quite handy. She groups the app descriptions and reviews into categories: Civic Apps, Transportation, Businesses, Food & Fun, and Other Stuff. Some of my favorite apps, like the Portland Pinball Map App, and transit related apps are reviewed (as well as quite a few I’d never heard of or have no interest in). Visit her site for the reviews!
