New mobile app for Chicago visitors
8 Nov 2011

The Chicago Office of Tourism and Culture (COTC) has teamed up with Motorola to launch StoryPlace.me, a mobile application that allows users to view, upload and share site-specific video content.

People planning a trip to Chicago can download the app from the Android Marketplace and experience a new way of engaging with places and sights in the city, according to the COTC.

A time-lapse video of the construction of the Smart Home exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry and a stop-motion film of the Go Do Good art installation are among the items that have already been uploaded.

The StoryPlace.me application is associated with ExploreChicago.org, the official website of the COTC.

Other highlights and recent additions to the ExploreChicago site include a blog providing an insider's perspective on the city, location-based games, social media travel tools and lists of events, tours and attractions indexed by date, location and areas of interest.
