New app adds local school info, boundaries

2013_04_29_09.34.44Move, the company that runs, has added some interesting features to its Android app. It now gives information about school districts.

If you zoom into an area far enough, icons of local schools will appear. You can click one to see its GreatSchools rating, and then have the map show the school district it covers — great for figuring whether a particular house is in that district (or the reverse: whether any homes are for sale in that region).

Taking advantage of your phone’s GPS, you can also ask the app to show you which schools cover your current location.

Find out more over at the Google Play store.
