Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) May 03, 2011

The Santa Fe Downtown Merchants Association, and the Santa Fe Gallery Association have launched the first free iPhone app about Santa Fe, dedicated to the finest shops, galleries, restaurants, and touring in the Land of Enchantment.

Now you can easily find things to do in Santa Fe, says Elizabeth Pettus, SFDMAs president. We hope all visitors enjoy this new way of discovering the Santa Fe experience.

The app features listings of more than 150 businesses, galleries, restaurants, museums and informational links like an Events Calendar, Santa Fe Weather, and Local News. One of the more helpful features are links to the major parking locations in town, with turn by turn direction based on your current location.

Another interesting feature is Best of deals or Mobile Coupons, which allows businesses to promoted specials during a week or specific time.

Parking always is an issue when you come into town, especially when we have Indian Market, adds Karla Winterowd, President of the SFGA. The app will not only guide you to the gallery or shop, but can also direct you to any of the major parking lots and garages, all within walking distance from the Historic Plaza.

Apples iOS platform, which includes iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, has an installed user base of almost 40 million. The Android version of the app, which covers another 24 million users, is in the development phase.

The app was developed in collaboration with Sunday Drive LLC, a silicon valley company specializing in building a networks of the best scenic and historic routes worldwide.

The iPhone app is a free download from Apple iTunes store.
