Veteran Nashville journalist (and diner) Pat Embry, a big fish at the Where The Locals Eat website and series of city guidebooks, wants all Bitesters to know that between now and March 1, sales of the company's mobile app will benefit earthquake relief in Haiti.
The deal: 100 percent of revenue for app purchases across all LocalEats mobile platforms -- iPhone, BlackBerry Storm and now Android (Google's operating system that powers the Droid and other smartphones) -- will be sent to the American Red Cross Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund.
I don't own a smartphone, but I do have an iPod Touch, and buying the 99 cent app made my iPod a lot smarter, with tons of great info about restaurants in Nashville and 49 other U.S. cities.
By the way, if you want to give more to help Haiti's quake victims you can text "HAITI" to 90999, and $10 will be sent to Red Cross relief efforts (added to your cell phone bill). Or you can check out the Red Cross' own site.
