Want to Know What’s Happening In Downtown Indy? There’s an App For That

Normally I don’t talk about technology as tourism, but this was so cool — and I’m such a geek — that I had to share it.

Downtown Indianapolis has its own smartphone app. If you own an iPhone or an Android, and you spend time in downtown Indy, or at least will be coming this way, then you need this app. It shows you everything you’ll ever want or need to know about downtown Indianapolis.

The new Downtown Indy app tells you what's happening and how to find it.

As someone who has been writing and speaking about the mobile industry for the last two years, this is what the future of mobile phone use is going to look like: information and entertainment available on your phone, rather than being limited to your laptop or desktop computer. 

The app has several features, including Hot Now, a section on events and promotions; Events, a section on what’s happening this weekend or next month, including sporting events, concerts, theatre performances, and festivals, and Find, a GPS map that guides you to the different restaurants, theaters, museums, hotels, and other downtown destinations.

You can download the Indy Downtown app from the iPhone App Store or the Android Market.
