Erie Canal App For BlackBerry 10 From The AT&T Rochester Civic App Challenge

Comments

Recently, AT&T, in partnership with RIT, Digital Rochester, High Tech Rochester and Hack Upstate, held the Rochester Civic App Challenge. The two month virtual hackathon challenged developers to build and deliver mobile apps that serve community needs and demonstrate how mobile technologies can lead to the next generation of tech jobs and investment. It’s an interesting concept which is often done through Open Data initiatives. At least one app, the Erie Canal app, is available on BlackBerry 10.

Erie Canal App

The Erie Canal app by Ebscer, is available for free for Android and BlackBerry 10 users. The app uses the Ionic framework which renders the UI quite nicely.

If you’re from the Rochester area, check out the app. It’s designed for those looking to travel along the canal by showing the Boat Launches, Locks, Lift Bridges, and Guard Gates along the canal’s path.
