Things to Do Mobile App Marks One Year Release Anniversary With New Updates

(November 17, 2011)

TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 17, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The St. Petersburg Times/'s industry leading iPhone application celebrates the anniversary of its launch one year ago this month with several upgrades that offer users access to more destinations and events, an Editor's Picks section, and increased performance. Developed by Haneke Design and launched in November 2010, the app was an instant hit with advertisers and local consumers and generated immediate buzz in the national publishing industry. Almost 30,000 people to date have downloaded the free app, which delivers consumers deals, mobile coupons, event listings, and other offers from local businesses straight to their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch devices. The newest version of the app is available for download now in Apple's App Store.

"We're very pleased with acceptance of this application in the marketplace and the attention it has received in the industry," said Jody Haneke, president of Haneke Design. "But the most exciting thing for us has been the feedback from the client, their advertisers, and users that has helped us make this app even better.   These upgrades will make it even easier for users to plan their daily and weekend leisure activities and develop relationships with local businesses to get the kind of deals they want most."

Haneke Design and the St. Petersburg Times/ team collaborated on the development of the app project over several months to make sure the app would deliver consumers the best content, deals, and event listings in an extremely user friendly and personalized manner. The app's home screen provides easy access to all the major sections and features via icons as Events, Destinations, Near Me (location based Events & Destinations), My Favorites (favorite Destinations), Deals (the user's announcements and coupons), Featured (currently featured businesses) and a locator box that tells users where to find copies of the St. Petersburg Times or tbt*Tampa Bay Times.
