Rehoboth In My Pocket – Finally, plus Freebies!

We are finally live with the first The Photo Tourist iPhone / iPod Touch application, Rehoboth In My Pocket. (And I’m pleased to report that personal testing shows the app also works well on the new iPad — though it looks best in an iPhone-sized window.)  A lot of the photos in the app are my own, also available for purchase on the Rick Collier Imagery web site.

The Rehoboth In My Pocket web site has been up for a few months now and seems to be attracting some interest; As we wander the streets of our “second home,” Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, more and more we are talking to folks who are interested in the app and the web site. Still, it is really exciting to be able to announce after several months of research, photography, and writing the app has finally gone live and is available at the iTunes App Store.  We’ve also been getting some press for the app in the newspapers in Rehoboth and Delaware.  We’ll be very interested to see where this goes, even as we start on our next project, Virginia Wine In My Pocket (which we’re hoping to launch in the spring and update with a “150 wineries in 150 days” wine tour over the summer).
