Hampshire's own iphone app gets two thousand downloads in it's first two months!
It shows you where your nearest country park, arts centre, library, discovery centre, museum or outdoor activity centre is.
Hampshire County Council is one of the first councils in the UK to create an iPhone app. and it's proving to be popular with the "digital generation".
Since it's launch two months ago more that two thousand downloads have been made.
Speaking to Heart at the time of the launch Executive Member for Culture and Recreation, Councillor Margaret Snaith-Tempia, said:
“The brand new Hampshire County Council Culture-all app is a fantastic way of finding venues and attractions that are within minutes of you, no matter where you are in the county. The app shows off the breadth of cultural services the council has to offer at the touch of the button and with well over 100 downloads in the first few days it is already proving to be a great success.”
The App costs £800 per year to run and despite budget cuts Hampshire County Council have told us there are no plans to scrap it.
The Culture-all app can be downloaded for free from Apple’s iTunes app store
Hampshire County Council has launched the app as part of its Culture-all campaign to inspire people in Hampshire to look at some of the family cultural attractions in the county.
