Visit Knoxville now available on the App Store

Visitors and residents of Knoxville, Tenn., now have a wonderful new resource available. Red Pixel Studios and Visit Knoxville have made the Visit Knoxville App available for free on the App Store.

Visit Knoxville (the Knoxville Convention and Visitors Bureau) developed the app with Red Pixel Studios of Owensboro, Ky., so that visitors can get information about the popular destination with a few flicks of their finger using their Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The app is also available for Android devices.

A product of Red Pixel Studio’s RPS Destinations solution, the App enables users to find out about the area’s countless attractions and recreational opportunities.

A Things To Do section provides users a convenient way to find the numerous family-friendly activities in the area. What’s Happening Now offers an easy way to know about upcoming events around Knoxville. Travelers can also use the app to learn about the numerous options for lodging, camping, dining and shopping.

A unique feature of the app is the Itineraries section, with suggested activities and attractions grouped around themes including excursions for each of the four seasons, as well as arts, civil war, fun for kids and more.

“The Visit Knoxville App is a great resource to visitors as well as for residents,” said Kim Bumpas, president of Visit Knoxville.  “The app gives visitors access to listings of hotels, restaurants, upcoming events, attractions, festivals, and much more.  If someone wants to know what is going on in town, where to eat dinner or find a hotel room, the app is a great resource of information.”

Visit Knoxville selected Red Pixel Studios to develop the App because they were able to incorporate the numerous features they wanted at a very low cost.

“We are excited to have had the opportunity to work with Visit Knoxville develop this app,” said Jason Kyle, vice president of Red Pixel Studios. “We’re also extremely proud to be able to enhance Knoxville’s tourism efforts and attract visitors to such a wonderful destination.”
