Talking There's an app for us...

I'm new here so if this is inappropriate please feel free to delete it.

I'm new to Al-Anon, setting boundaries and pretty much everything else. It makes me feel more secure knowing that there are people out there who care and meetings that I can go to.

I'm an iPhone user and came across an app that basically finds your location and directs you to meetings near you. I think you can also add meetings as well.

It's called "Steps Away" and it's free.

I just discovered this and wanted to share. It makes me feel a little better knowing I have some resources with me at all times.

SlvrMag,

If not that exact one, I'll bet there is an app like that for the Droid.
