You can now view Downtown Boulder's Web Site on Web optimized viewing for Blackberry, Palm Pre, Droid, iPhone and any web enabled phone. The Downtown Boulder Business Improvement District now offers the compatible mobile version of the Web site at http://m.boulderdowntown.com.
With the launch of Downtown Boulder’s mobile-optimized version of the Web site, mobile visitors can quickly and easily search for events and business listings, as well as maps and directions through this location-based site. Mobile users tend to be action oriented (“I’m looking for XYZ right now”) and their queries often contain a strong geographic context (“How do I get to XYZ from where I’m at?”) Downtown Boulder's mobile Web application will automatically locate users on iPhones, current Blackberry, Android and other GPS based smartphones. Other mobile users can set their location by selecting a nearby business or street intersection.
"In the past year, we have embraced social media and seen how it can enhance our overall marketing and public relations efforts,” said Terri Takata-Smith, Director of Marketing for Downtown Boulder. “Looking ahead to the immediate future, we see the opportunity to engage a growing segment of the population through our mobile site. Visitors to Downtown Boulder want information right at their fingertips. We felt it was important to develop and provide an efficient, effective and friendly mobile browsing experience for these users." Downtown Boulder’s Web and mobile sites were developed by Geocentric and run from Citylight software (http://www.geocentric.com).
