Introducing the Laconia Motorcycle Week Mobile App
The Newest Technology comes to America's Oldest Riding Rally
For the first time, attendees to the 90th Anniversary of Laconia Motorcycle Week will be able to use their smartphones as their own personal “command central” when planning their travels and rides.
The Laconia Mobile Guide (LMG) is the new application, created for iPhone and for Android systems, that will allow riders to plan routes, find destinations and events, communicate with other riders, access forums and receive up-to-the-moment information on entertainment, events, lodging, schedule changes, weather, special offers and more.
Once a rider downloads the free app and creates a simple user preference profile, they can receive messages from other members, sponsors and Laconia Motorcycle Week organizers as well as send messages to other members of the network. The App will be divided into sections such as: Member Directory, Messages, Events, Around Me, My Wall and Member Groups, all easily accessed on the app menu. The free app is now available for download on iTunes and will shortly be available for Android devices as well.
“As riders ourselves, we know that these days, motorcycle enthusiasts everywhere are using their phones more like a tool than just a device to make calls and we believe the Laconia Mobile Guide will help them to easily get all the information they need and want to enjoy all the rally has to offer,” says Jennifer Anderson of the Laconia Motorcycle Week Association, “As we turn 90 in 2013, we prove that we just keep getting better with age!”
The Laconia Mobile Guide brings the WHEN and WHERE to your ride, in real time, right in your hand.
