[prMac.com] Hood River, Oregon - 2Morrow Mobile and The Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum (WAAAM) announce the release of their new WAAAM iPhone app just in time for the Annual Hood River Fly-In held Sept. 10th in Hood River, OR.
The app was created by WAAAM volunteers including Brandon Masterson of 2Morrow Mobile. Masterson suggested the app idea to WAAAM as a way for the museum to gain exposure to a new audience and to help showcase the impressive collection of over 200 antique airplanes, cars, truck and military vehicles that are preserved in operating condition at WAAAM.
"This WAAAM iPhone app will help introduce the history and innovation surrounding the golden age of transportation to a whole new generation," explains Masterson. "We are using today's technology to preserve the technology of the past."
The basic WAAAM iPhone app is offered for free and provides a mini-tour of the museum featuring photos and info about 20 of the old planes, cars, trucks and motorcycles. It also offers videos, news, and information about the founder, directions and more. There is an option to upgrade for those who want to see more vehicles and/or want to support the WAAAM app project. 2Morrow Mobile will be donating profits from the app back to the museum to help them with restoration projects like the 1917 Detroit Electric.
"The best part about this museum is that it is alive! It is moving to hear the engines roar and see these old planes fly. You can't help but imagine (or remember) what life was like way back when..." says Judy Newman, Museum Director at WAAAM. "We are very excited and hopeful that this app will expose new generations to a bit of the magic from the early days of transportation and the wonder that is WAAAM."
The Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum (WAAAM) opened its doors in 2007 as a non-profit museum, and has quickly become a favorite attraction in the Pacific Northwest. With over 95,000 square feet of indoor space filled with over 200 planes, cars and other vehicles, WAAAM provides an unforgettable experience for visitors of all ages. So, what's so special about this museum? Nearly all of the vehicles are in operating condition and you can often see the old planes fly in early mornings or even catch a ride in one of the old cars on Second Saturdays. Located in Hood River, OR.
