    My wife and I are annual, season-long snow birders and the app enables us to have a sense of connection to the community while we are up north as well as when we are in Ft Myers Beach for the winter.

    I only get the paper 2 times a week and check twitter periodically during the day for the national news. This app lets me know the local news immediately.
