“Marietta and the…bureau have come together to create a
mobile application that will help locals and tourists to navigate around
Marietta and Washington County. The purpose of the ‘app’ is to provide more
flexibility and more information in terms of things that are going on, maybe
sales in the downtown shopping district or elsewhere, places to eat and
wonderful things to do.”
When will the new app be available? That's hard to say, this early in development.
“This is a big project, getting all the information into the
app itself to make it really user-friendly – gathering all the pieces of the
puzzle is going to take a little bit of time.”
Knowlton also says the app will be able to provide directions, even
turn-by-turn navigation, to as many as 200 local businesses and attractions.
