LocalHero For iPhone Connects You With Local Experts To Solve Your Problems

iOS: LocalHero is a new service that aims to connect users with subject matter experts in their communities to help answer questions, provide advice, and offer informed opinions. The service connects to your Facebook account to determine your skills and location, and uses it to connect you with friends and others on LocalHero looking for advice.

Once logged in, LocalHero helps you contribute to the community by using your skills and education to make you a subject matter expert in your field. Once your skills are fleshed out and the service has you connected with friends, you can look through active requests in your area, or submit a request for information of your own. You can attach an image or additional information to your request, select the skills you’d like the person answering to have, and share it with friends, or with everyone.

Admittedly, a service like LocalHero is only as good as how many people in your community are participating, and how many are willing to respond to requests for assistance. If you’re willing to help, the app is free and available now in the iTunes App Store, and the developers say there’s an Android version on the way.
