XLR8R and Scion present Version 2 of the City Guide iPhone and Android Applications
In 2009, XLR8R and Scion launched the City Guide mobile apps for iPhone and Android, with the corresponding website, XLR8R.com/cityguide. A collaborative effort in a long tradition of forward-thinking projects undertaken by XLR8R and Scion, the City Guide allows users to navigate editorial picks for the coolest bars, restaurants, cafés, galleries, shops, record stores and unique spots, with supporting descriptions, locations, photographs and more. We’ve even selected the best one-off music and art events for each city, including Scion racing and lifestyle events.
The Next Generation City Guide App
XLR8R and Scion are proud to announce the next generation of the iPhone and Android apps, which have been completely redesigned and simplified. With fewer screens to navigate, and more intuitive access to the information contained within, new features include:
- New planning view, where the user can create a plan while browsing information. Plans can be shared with friends via Facebook, Twitter and email directly from your phone.
- Browse listings by tabbed categories, both in a list and map view.
- Filter results with a pop-up screen that allows the user to narrow by distance from current location, day of the week and time of day.
- Weekly updated events in 15 US cities, and growing: Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, St. Louis, San Francisco and Seattle.
To get the free City Guide application, download the City Guide iPhone application from the iTunes store or log on to XLR8R.com/cityguide, or from your handset, simply type “XLR8R Scion” into the App Store or Android Marketplace to install directly.
