Driving a car as we know today could be obsolete in the next 20 years. Presently, manually operating a gasoline engine powered automobile is an integral part of life in North America. Whether you live in a smaller city, or a larger city, such as Los Angeles, without good public transportation, one is expected to drive.
As far as apps go -- it's less than an app. It's merely a thrown-together version of a feed aggregator with very limited content and no useful Google or social integration.

Our state-of-the-art smart phone, computer and Blu-ray player has become the new car of the 21st century: the minute we drive it off the lot, it's obsolete and virtually worthless. The same can be said for the art of communication, which has been almost completely taken over by technology in the past 20 years.
