Fort Smith Launches New Mobile Tourism App


The Fort Smith Convention & Visitors Bureau launched  a new mobile app in early November . The app is named Experience Fort Smith and can be downloaded for free in the App Store and Google Play.

Fort Smith app

It lets visitors and locals easily discover all the different ways to find points-of-interest and experience Fort Smith, Arkansas’s second-largest city. According to a press release, key features include social media integration, click-to-action tools, and location services that enable users to interact with local businesses, share app content, easily find contact information, make use of turn-by turn navigation, and browse categories that sort lists based on a user’s present location. In addition, app users have access to other content, like a “special deals” section that will be exclusive to the app and include offers submitted by local businesses.

Developed entirely in-house, the app is one of the few local tourism apps in Arkansas and the only one with cross-platform availability on iPhones, iPads, Android smartphones and tables, and HTML5-ready devices.
