What can you use the app for?

Communr is an application that helps users connect to and interact with the people and places in their local community. Communr is a social network designed to connect people, places, groups, and events in local communities around the United States. Communr connects users to what's around them, and does this intelligently based on a user's location, interests, likes and dislikes, and other traits. This is a great application that helps get the word out about local churches, schools, parks, shops and restaurants.

Individuals can use Communr to learn about their community from the comfort of their home. This should ultimately lead to more connected neighbors, people and places. Additionally people can connect with one another in their community based on their shared interests in hobbies, opinions or lifestyles. Communr makes it easy for its users to create and join groups online that can range in interest from the local gyms to the nearby neighborhood associations to a city-wide team.

Finally, Communr helps its users discover and connect with new places and events in their local community.
