Use your phone to get the information you want, whenever — and wherever – you want it. In today’s increasingly mobile world that means receiving Palm Springs Pride event details in the palm of your hand.
The official Palm Springs Pride App is now available to download from the iTunes App Store. Through the app, developed in partnership between Palm Springs Pride and EDGE Media Network, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users will be able to keep track of festivities during Pride Week as well as all other official Palm Springs Pride events. App users will be able to access information and receive updates on Palm Springs Pride events, upload photos, and connect with other revelers.
“There is no better tool to get up to date Pride event information, purchase tickets or share Pride Weekend pictures,” said Ron deHarte, president of Palm Springs Pride. “The app is a great way to reach out to the community and encourage their involvement in the celebration.”
The app was designed and developed by EDGE Media Network, working with Palm Springs Pride. Headquartered in Boston, EDGE is the largest network of local lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) news and entertainment portals in the world, serving about 1 million dedicated readers from a variety of metropolitan areas around the United States and beyond.
“At EDGE, we believe that the LGBT community is a diverse, dynamic group of individuals,” said David Foucher, chief executive officer of EDGE. “Developing this app is another way we achieve the goal of connecting members of the LGBT community together. We’re pleased to be working with Palm Springs Pride on this project and we look forward to seeing people at Palm Springs Pride Week using this app to enhance their celebration experience.”
The Greater Palm Springs Pride App is immediately available for iPhone, iPad and iTouch users to download free of cost, from the iTunes App Store while the app will be available to android download soon. A Droid version, for the non-iPhone users, will be available in October.
