Dallas, TX, June 28, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- AroundTownKids.com, the premier online resource for parents in the DFW area, is excited to announce the release the newest version of their app which lists Fun Places to go in the metroplex. This App is the only one of its kind and is exclusive to AroundTownKids. With the tap of a finger this latest version enables parents to find fun and interesting places to go in DFW – everything from bowling alleys to museums to parks. The app is simple to use and sorted for easy perusing listing types of places by category.
The AroundTownKids App is free for download to an iPhone or iPad via the App store or online at http://www.aroundtownkidsfrisco.com/DFWThingsToDoApp.htm.
“We’re all creatures of habit and tend to frequent the same places over and over again. Sometimes you might want to try out a new fun place to go or take visiting guests. It’s also a very handy service for those that have just moved to the area,” notes Ms. Cates, founder, owner and editor of the popular parenting site.
“This app brings us to the forefront of mobile marketing technology, allowing us to stay convenient and up-to-date for parents, giving them access to information at the tap of a finger. This latest version comes just in time for summer when kids are home and need things to do,” notes Ms. Cates.
The app is not only free, but also can save parents money: coupons for fun places around the metroplex are found right there on the app. Forgot to print the coupon? No worries – just show the coupon from your AroundTownKids.com app!
When parents download the app for free, an icon for AroundTownKids.com will appear on the screen of their iPhone or iPad. Parents can see a list of places in DFW by type or categories, listed alphabetically. Once they tap into a type or category, the next screen lists venues in this category. Parents can simply “tap the app” to call the number listed, map the address, visit the venue’s website, and look for an icon on the app indicating that place offers a coupon.
“AroundTownKids has always been on the cutting edge of technology starting with the birth of our website 8 years ago before any similar websites existed. We're staying ahead of the technology curve once again by bringing parents the latest technology that no other media outlet like us has. We are thrilled to offer parents another easy time-saver and what parent doesn’t need more time?” noted Cates, who is a busy on-the-go parent and “mompreneur.”
AroundTownKids.com was founded in 2004 as DFW’s original kids’ event calendar and online parent resource guide. The site offers a weekly e-newsletter, coupons, monthly contests including free birthday parties, event listings in Collin County and across DFW, reviews of local businesses, events, and family-friendly locales, and much more. Staffed by a team of local mom specialists, AroundTownKids.com has quickly become the “go-to” site for busy parents in the area.
