One of the problems I have with hyper local search is the fragmentation. You can check in with Foursquare or Gowalla, or Google HotPot on Maps, or a dozen other apps. Then you have geotagged pictures, local deals, events, and more. It’s nearly impossible to keep up with it all. If you’re like me, your phone only has so much room for apps and widgets.
Fwix is a tool that aggregates social content and news. According to TechCrunch:
For neighborhoods, businesses and points of interest, Fwix It culls local data from 30,000 blogs and news feeds; status updates from Twitter, Foursquare, Gowalla, Google Buzz, and BrightKite; geo-tagged photos from Flickr, Smugmug, and Picassa; local deals from Groupon, LivingSocial, and MobileSpinach; events from Eventbrite, Eventful, Zvents, Stubhub, Ticketmaster, reviews from Yelp, Citysearch, OpenTable, Yahoo! Local, and Zagat; and government data from SpotCrime, FixMyStreet, and SeeClickFix.
