Local content in the palm of your hand.
Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) July 10, 2015
Townapps, world leaders in the area of app development for towns and local communities is proud to announce the release of 46 turn-key travel guide apps for small, vibrant towns and cities across Canada and the United States. Available for free download, users can access up-to-date local news feeds, weather forecasts and redeem exclusive special offers from local businesses. Using geolocation, users can easily find places of interest near them, get directions and contact local businesses directly through the app. No WIFI? No problem. Once downloaded, users can access listings information offline.
To take these local information apps to the next level, Townapps are seeking local partners who are committed to promoting the local area and building a unique business. Townapps is the ideal solution for Local Government, Tourism Organizations, Business Organizations or Associations, Local Media (Print/Radio/Website) or Community Groups seeking to establish a mobile guide for their community without incurring any development costs. Using the Townapps pre-built platform, a town or community can be up and running with its own town guide app in a matter of weeks.
Austin Comerton, vice-president of Townapps, believes one of the app’s main advantages is that it is reactive. “Many organizations allocate budget to brochures and other traditional advertising and promotional media, but often the message can change over the course of a season”, he said. “So you could have a situation where a business invests in a campaign and then finds that it becomes obsolete very quickly. With an app, you can change it quickly and easily.”
Apps are available now for Canadian towns throughout Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, Prince Edward Island and Saskatchewan. Locations in the United States include Alaska, Delaware, Florida, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New York, South Dakota, Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming. A full list of locations available can be found on Townapps websites: http://www.townapps.ca, http://www.townapps.us.
