[prMac.com] Sacramento, California - 1776 Productions is proud to announce the release of the Livermore Valley App for the iPhone. Released on Friday, August 13th, the Livermore Valley app is a guide to the more than 50 wineries in the valley - from Wente Vineyards, established in 1883, to recent urban wineries, like Lavish Laines Winery and Nottingham Cellars.
Launched in combination with a four-page Livermore Valley insert in the Sacramento and San Francisco Book Reviews, the Livermore Valley iPhone app goes beyond just the wineries and also includes local arts events, restaurants, shopping, and activity guides. Special exclusive iPhone offers from local wineries and businesses can save users money while exploring the Livermore Valley.
"I grew up in the Livermore Valley," says Heidi Komlofske, "and it was a lot of fun wandering around the area seeing all the changes since I was last there, meeting the people involved in the wine and entertainment industry, and hearing about all the exciting things they have going on in Livermore and the surrounding areas."
Developed by 1776 Productions:
The Livermore Valley App for the iPhone combines a local business directory with Google maps, directions, and location-based social media. Each user can sign into their Facebook and Twitter accounts to interact with local businesses and their friends, and control their privacy settings through the app.
"The Livermore Valley App allows the user to post about their experiences in the Livermore area to their Twitter and Facebook feeds, directly from the app, sharing what they are doing, while they do it" says Ross Rojek of 1776 Productions. "Additionally, some business owners are using the app to directly reach new and prospective customers who have questions or need help."
