University Circle, there's an app for that too.

03/20/12  |  Posted by Amber Luning  |  Posted in Digital Canvas - Apps & Accessories

University Circle inc has released an iOS app specifically for Cleveland's own University Circle. It is, fittingly enough, called "University Circle". University circle is one of those apps that doesn't get reviewed on this blog very often, because it's not an art app, and isn't really creative or funny in any way. But it is cool and useful and relates to the campus so obviously you, dear reader, need to be informed about it. Because the app is one that will keep you informed. In format it's much like the app for Livingsocial, but instead of offering you deals on massages and cupcakes and stuff, it tells you everything about everything that happens in this area. And everywhere it's happening.... The app also has collections of photos from various events [caption id="attachment_3024" align="alignnone" width="225" caption="Ah... memories"][/caption] And includes a function that allows you to favorite places and events. So in case you want to look up that cool gallery show happening tomorrow, or the performance of Mozart's Magic Flute by the Cleveland Orchestra, or remember the name of that Brazilian restaurant that is completely inexplicably tiny and out of the way (Sergio's), you can just look in your favorites. [caption id="attachment_3028" align="alignnone" width="225" caption="I happen to enjoy dragons. Judge me."][/caption] Altogether, regardless of how little real commentary I have on the product, it's a great product. It's super useful, especially if you don't know the area as well as you think you should. It's a good thing to tell your parents to download when they come to visit, so they have something to do while you're in class all day. It's a good thing to have for yourself so if you catch yourself with a random free Tuesday evening, there's a list of events, places, things, and interesting stuff that's close by in the palm of your hand (or in both of your hands if you're using your iPad). It's a mobile guidebook to, and event guide for, University Circle. And those things come in handy. It's probably good to keep them around. University Circle is free at the Itunes Store
