Downtown Pleasanton is Going Mobile!
Posted On: June 21, 2011 at 6:00 AM
Pleasanton Downtown Association (PDA) is excited to launch their iPhone Application that will put downtown businesses, events and more at the fingertips of both residents and visitors. The Downtown Pleasanton App is FREE and is available now for download from the Apple App Store on all iPhones. The PDA hopes to launch the Android version of the app in coming months.
Developed by 1776 Productions, the Downtown Pleasanton App is an extremely useful tool that combines a downtown business directory with Google maps, directions, event information, specials and more. The app is web-based, so content will be updated and refreshed each time the app is opened, keeping the app current and relevant for all users.
“The PDA is excited to give our visitors and residents a way to access directory and event information in seconds so that they can get to where they need to go fast,” said Laura Olson, Executive Director for the Pleasanton Downtown Association. “Many people are now using a mobile device to help them make decisions about where to go to dinner, where to pick up a new outfit or where to find a chiropractor or hair dresser. Our app gives convenient and instantaneous access to this information whether someone is at home, at work or on the go.”
The PDA will continue to add functionality and special features to the app over the coming months. “We want our app to be the go-to app for everyone in Pleasanton”, Olson stated. She also said the PDA is open to suggestions as to how to further enhance the app. Anyone with comments or suggestions are welcome to email her directly at email@example.com.
iPhone and iTouch users can download the free app by searching for Downtown Pleasanton in the Apple app store.
