No matter where you are in Hampshire the brand new Culture-all iPhone mobile app will show you where your nearest country park, arts centre, library, discovery centre, museum or outdoor activity centre is.

The Culture-all app can be downloaded for by clicking here FREE from Apple's iTunes app store to an iPod touch or iPhone, and provides a new way to find out about all the exciting things to see and do in the county.

Hampshire County Council is one of the first councils in the UK to create an iPhone app in an effort to tap into the ever increasing digital generation. The free app is extremely quick to download and easy to use, with ideas for indoor and outdoor activities, attractions that are nearby, maps to the venues, directions using GPS, and opening times of over 80 different sites and attractions. There is also a direct link to the Culture-all twitter stream which gives up-to-date information on different events and activities.

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."

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 fascinating family cultural attractions in the county. More information on the campaign can be found by clicking here
