The civic-minded or the out-of-towners can get acquainted better with Downtown Long Beach now thanks to a new iPhone application that will help people navigate the area, according to the Press-Telegram. The free app, currently only available for iPhone, aims to put the city's business district just a touch away for those who want to learn about events, where to find parking, report graffiti, hop on a bus, or where to get a bite to eat. Eventually the developers, Meta Flavor, plan to enhance the app by adding personal preference-based restaurant results, public safety alerts, and more. They also plan to develop versions for BlackBerry and Android phones.
