Rotterdam has introduced a city guide app. The Rotterdam app gives visitors and inhabitants constant access to convenient city info via their mobile phones. It provides access to a city guide with information on attractions, museums, hotels, restaurants and shops and it also includes a city map and a dynamic events calendar. To download the app, users need to open m.rotterdam.info/download with their mobile phone.

Once the app is installed you can explore Rotterdam on-the-go  on your mobile phone.  This mobile city guide highlights the very best that Rotterdam has to offer. Using the application will not require an internet connection or additional roaming costs. The content is stored in the application including the offline maps and the entire events calendar is downloaded at the first time use. You only need an Internet connection to  update the events calendar or if you want to interact with the Web.

The application offers information and images for over 500 locations in the city. You can call the location directly from the app. View the calendar for each location to see what’s on or save the location as a favorite for later reference.

The Rotterdam app is available for almost any mobile phone, including Java, Blackberry, iPhone and Android phones. The app is available in the Apple Appstore, via i-Tunes or in the Android Market. Features may differ per mobile platform.
