The Baker City Herald and The La Grande Observer have launched a free app for mobile devices and smart phones called Go! Northeast Oregon. The app is partnered with the two newspapers’ annual visitor guides and their weekly Go! print and online magazines.
“It makes sense that we share the information we publish in our magazines with locals and tourists via their smart phones,” said Observer/Herald Publisher Kari Borgen. “The location-based features of the app are really useful for getting turn-by-turn directions on your phone to our Northeast Oregon attractions.” Other features include location and topic-based search, digital postcards and current travel alerts.
Borgen credits area tourism officials and businesses with helping provide information and testing of the app. Visitors can access information about things to see and do, events and specials.
Go! Northeast Oregon is available for download for iPhones and iPads on the App Store, and for Android devices on Google Play.
