Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) August 28, 2013
Sun Trolley’s ever-popular tracker app received its 10,000th download in August 2013. Launched in 2012, with the help of the Leadership Broward Class 30 Project team (Shea Smith, Peter Neirouz, Brandon Hensler, John Brown, Jana Lhota, April Kirk, Carlos Cervantes) this innovative tracker app is truly exceeding expectations.
“We are so thrilled that so many Sun Trolley passengers, residents and tourists alike, are utilizing the App to track the trolleys in real time,” states Patricia Zeiler, Executive Director. “In response to the Tracker App’s success, we are planning to expand the app’s reach even further by integrating with Go Riverwalk’s event calendar and developing a desktop app that can be utilized by hotel concierges in Fort Lauderdale.”
Sun Trolley’s Tracker App, designed by Chris Caputo of Wilton Manors-based MetroMedia Works, literally “tracks” the location of all the Sun Trolleys across all seven routes in real time. GPS location services in the user’s smartphone allows the app to direct the passenger to the nearest Sun Trolley route where he or she can wave down one of the trolleys.
“I believe this app is so popular because its simple, easy to use interface offers the exact information the user is looking for,” states developer Chris Caputo. “In addition to the number of downloads, the app has been seeing high monthly usage rates, approximately 3,000 times per month because those who use the app use it frequently.”
Recently awarded the 2012 Travel Choices Innovative Program Award, the Sun Trolley Tracker app is available for download on your Android or Apple I-Phone.
