City officials are trying to provide an easy answer to the question: “What is there to do in Carmel?”
The City of Carmel has developed a new smartphone app in conjunction with Bluebridge, a Fishers-based company.
The app, called “Carmel IN Community Guide” uses GPS technology to guide users to nearby attractions, such as the closest hotels, golf courses, theaters, art galleries, outdoor attractions and merchants. It also features the new Carmel Caffeine Trail and Indiana Glass Trail artists in Carmel.
“We hope residents and visitors alike will enjoy this app designed to help you find a variety of events and activities conveniently and quickly with just a few taps on your smartphone or tablet,” stated Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard.
The app features “click to call” phone numbers and links to Web sites and easy sharing functions. Users can even search for “gluten free” dining options. There are deals and discounts and an event calendar. Bicycle enthusiasts can find the best trails.
One of the local developers, Bluebridge, has become the largest provider of destination apps in the world, launching more than 600 apps.
Local business and arts organizations are encouraged to contact the City of Carmel at email@example.com to add events/businesses.
