Submission + - Ask Slashdot: How do you promote a mobile app

mininab writes: "I recently did a website to find events around one's geolocation. Nothing new but html5 made possible things that were cumbersome before. I am now thinking about promoting it, tried facebook ads with little to no result, tried contacting blogs but they all want $50 to talk about it ( I suspect they don't even look at the stuff ). I tried all I could think of, and I'm hoping the slashdot crowd might have suggestions. I'm up against a few companies starting the same kind of service, and I'm afraid I can't compete with their well-funded marketing. I'm a lone dev, I'd hire a designer if I had money, so how can I promote on the cheap ?"
