Troy Night Out app

troy night out app screenshots

Check it out: there's now a Troy Night Out mobile app. From the description:

Discover the wide variety of businesses in downtown Troy, New York. Troy Night Out happens on the last Friday of each month with things to do, see, touch, and taste. With the Troy Night Out app you can search for participating businesses, get directions, and find out what's happening while your in Troy for the night.

There are screenshots above.

The app is the creation of Troy-based Gavant Software -- it announced Monday that it's donated the app to the Troy BID. The app will have information for this Friday's TNO.

It's available for both the iPhone and Android.

Unsolicited suggestion: It's great to see a local company pitching in to help like this. +1. What might might also be good: a bunch of local arts/events orgs collaborating with a partner to create a multi-place, multi-event local app, one that would include info for events such as TNO and 1st Friday, along with other stuff like Alive at Five and other business improvement districts.

Speaking of Troy Night Out: The new decorated Uncle Sam statues are schedule to be formally unveiled around Troy at next month's TNO (April 26).

Sounds like you just volunteered.

@Tim: If we had the capability, we might have already done it!

I love your unsolicited advice! If I weren't a hermit, I might also find it useful. :)

What a great idea!
