LA Weekly Debuts Their Own iPhone App

LAWapp.png The LA Weekly’s app is pretty neat. No news. Just listings of events and restaurants. Generally helpful if you’re the kind of person who does stuff.

You can download it for free at the app store. Always a plus. Not like the dim two buck CNN app.

Of course, if we were building an LA Weekly iPhone app, it would be much much different. It’d be a map with honing dots where ever Patrick Range McDonald or Jonathon Gold were hanging out. We are super lazy stalkers. Plus we’d want a constantly updated emoticon for the mood of editor Drex Heikes. “I feel like pitching a series of articles about the plight of parking enforcement hybrids, I’ll just check to see if Heikes isn’t already bored.”

Is there an app for that?
