A sleek design and a smart concept, Unite This City is this year's winner for best locally developed app. It's $10 per month to be a member, and members get mobile "giftcard" discounts to Cleveland-area restaurants, businesses, and entertainment venues (members also get a chance to win prizes every time they "check in" at one of those spots, and UTC gives a cut of money to local charities). The iOS and Android app uses your phone's location data to show deals around you, but you can also search for businesses and events and save your favorites while exploring the city on a budget.
