Did you ever wish you could find out exactly what's happening in and around Marquette on your mobile phone? Well, starting Wednesday evening, there's finally an app for that. The Landmark Inn was the site of the launch ceremony for the "in Marquette" app. The application is available on the iPhone and functions as a guide for the best restaurants, places to stay, and things to do in Marquette. Local businesses will also be able offer app users coupons and special promotions. Creators say Marquette is just the beginning.
"It's not just for Marquette. We think of Marquette as a pilot, you know, just kind of working out the bugs, seeing what works and what doesn't, what people want and just honing it and making it better, just growing," said app co-founder, Josh Morrison.
A similar app for Munising and Stillwater, Minnesota is currently being developed.
