LocalFoodCS (by Vrello Apps)
This app can be used by everyone to help encourage eating and sourcing local food. It meets the simplest needs of helping you find a great restaurant, food truck or bar to visit with friends or family. But you’ll be able to do much more than simply search. Now, you can connect with others to sell food if you are growing or producing locally and you can find others who source food like farmers, community gardens, coffee roasters and apiaries (also known as a bee yard). You can even find neighbors near you who want to sell their fresh eggs, berries or honey. Download the app from iTunes or Google Play, explore all the options, and enjoy the food!
GoCoSprings (by GOGovAps, Inc)
Most of us go online or use our mobile devices for information, and the city of Colorado Springs making it easy to find answers to questions about our community with a robust website, www.coloradosprings.gov, and a very cool app: GoCo Springs.
Available on iTunes or the Google Playstore, GoCo Springs users can ask a question, report a problem like a pothole or graffiti, or submit feedback. Just select your topic and take a picture, if applicable. The app knows the location and sends your request directly to the correct city department. You can even track the progress of your request to make sure it is completed.
You will even be able to check real-time information, like flight arrival and departures at the Colorado Springs Airport (COS) and find where the current “cone zones” are on the city streets to help you avoid delays.
Plus, there are great opportunities to connect and reach out on social media, find contacts at the city, or learn about upcoming events.
