6ABC Action News At 4
6abc launches 6abc Events App
October 1, 2012 (WPVI) -- As always, we here at 6abc are constantly devising you new ways to help you get information that's important to you.
We have a brand new app that will give you access to hundreds of community events right from your smart phone or tablet.
The 6abc Events App is your mobile source for everything in and around Philadelphia and the surrounding counties.
"It's updated constantly with the new events and new information," says Lee Daniels, the 6abc Web Operations Manager .
Simply download the free app from iTunes or the Android marketplace and that's it! You're ready to search all of the hottest happenings in your area by date or keyword. Seasonal events will be broken out into separate categories, like "Down at the Shore." The settings let you organize the information the way you want it.
"You can choose to receive an alert to allow you to know when an event has been updated," Daniels says.
Along with the event information you can also get driving directions, current weather conditions in the area, tickets along with any pertinent video and parking information and facilities that the users in the community would find valuable.
Once you have all your plans set, you can share the information on social media like Twitter and Facebook with just the click of a button.
If you have an event that you would like added to the 6abc Events App, this link to our website at 6abc.com will take you directly to where you can submit items for our Community Calendar!
