Nashville, TN – LocalEats, a leading iPhone and BlackBerry Storm
dining application and creator of popular website
WhereTheLocalsEat.com, announced yesterday that it has released its
LocalEats app for the Android platform and that it is donating 100% of
all its mobile app revenue, until March 1, to the American Red Cross*
Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund.
“Some other iPhone app developers have decided to donate to the effort
in Haiti, as well,” says company founder Bill King, “and we’re just
proud to be part of a mobile software and technology community that can
do something like this. The information and the links that have been
all over social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook encouraging
people to support the relief efforts and the text messaging services
that automatically send donations to wonderful agencies have put a real
spotlight on the ability of these new technologies to promote help,
relief and awareness during times of crisis. And we are happy to do
what we can — across all three of our major mobile platforms — to help
out in some way, amounting to what we hope will be a sizable
contribution to the Red Cross fund for Haiti relief.”
LocalEats will be donating 100% of app revenues to the Red Cross
through the end of January and through February. LocalEats’ developers
hope that the app’s presence on multiple mobile platforms – including
the now available Android version – will allow them to reach more
smartphone users and therefore collect more donations. The already
popular LocalEats costs 99 cents to download on the Android and iPhone
and $2.99 on the BlackBerry Storm.
