GRAND MARAIS—Visit Cook County announced the release of their new smartphone app. The app, designed to give visitors quick access on places to eat, stay and play in Cook County. The app also includes an events directory that is synced automatically each day with the event calendar on the Visit Cook County website, ensuring up-to-date information.
The app is designed to work even if the user is not connected to the internet, making it a pretty handy tool for locals, too. “I use it constantly, especially to find phone numbers for businesses,” said Kjersti Vick, marketing manager at Visit Cook County. “It only takes two steps. Open app, select category. It’s very convenient.”
A person can contact listed businesses by phone and email, and, if online, visit business websites and social media tools, all without leaving the app.
The app can be downloaded free on Apple and Android phones at Google Play and the Apple iTunes store (search for “Visit Cook County.”)
