Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) October 6, 2010
PRWEB) October 6, 2010 -- The City of Long Beach is inviting everyone downtown, and there's a cool new smartphone app from Geoffiti to help make it a great time. The app has been such a success that the Geoffiti development team was honored today for its efforts to bring people to Downtown Long Beach with a prestigious Crystal Eagle Award from the California Downtown Association.
"We are honored to be recognized along with Downtown Long Beach Associates by the California Downtown Association with this very prestigious award," said Alireza Kohani CEO of Geoffiti. "It is a great recognition of what our app can do to help urban areas all over the country reinvent themselves using the latest smartphone technology."
The use of smartphones has really changed the use of the Internet over the past few years, making real time local results even more important to a new class of technology users. It also has forced developers to make relevant content applicable to the "on the go" user with a smaller browsing window.
Geoffiti took a different tack to reach the rapidly growing mobile Internet user. Instead of focusing on miniaturization, Geoffiti worked with the Downtown Long Beach Association to focus on the mobilization of existing information, and expanding on what the consumer wanted in a powerful new app.
DLBA Marketing Director Steve Sheldon credited Geoffiti with the success of the final product saying, "Geoffiti listened to our input, understood our needs and went on to exceed our all our expectations."
"Without being limited to a browser-based application, we were able to focus on the functionality of greatest value to the user," Kohani said. "That provided the breakthrough mindset that created this award winning app."
The app places the entire downtown experience in the hand of the mobile smartphone user. Up to date information about parking, public transportation, dining, road construction, promotions, shopping, entertainment and event activities are all easily accessible in one handy iPhone or Android app.
Best of all, the technology is easily adaptable to other cities looking to reinvigorate their urban downtown core.
"We want to partner with cities, redevelopment agencies, downtown associations and chamber of commerce all over the nation to help them use smartphone technologies to make their downtown areas easier to use and enjoy," Kohani said. "That's what Geoffiti is all about."
