10 Popular Mobile Apps At SXSW 2012


A finalist in SXSW’s Community Interactive award, Trover is a new social networking app that helps you uncover and share nearby “hidden gems,” ranging from restaurants, to historical sites, to hiking trails.

The free Androind and iOS app is a visual one that invites you to snap a picture of your newest “discovery” and share it with other Trover users. You can scroll through a growing number of places and things hosted on the app to take virtual tours of a particular neighbor, town, or state. If you see a particular discovery that piques your interest, simply click on it to see user reviews and its exact location.

Tover even provides you with the directions you need to get there.
