charity walk smartphone app

Have you been searching for a way to promote and coordinate your charity walks using mobile technology only to find the options were expensive or lacking in quality? This week, I discovered a free smartphone app creator that can be used to create professional looking apps in support of your events.

richmond arthritis walk appI have started experimenting with Yapp Events. You can view the smartphone app that I am creating to promote the 2013 Richmond Arthritis Walk at or scan this QR code with your smartphone.

The apps created work on both iOS and Android devices. The app creator makes it easy to enter event information into the app and also includes app pages that contain contact information and photo galleries. Professional details have been included like making the event address clickable to automatically bring up a map to the location.

Try the Yapp Events app creator for yourself. Be sure to leave a comment about your experience and creative ways the app could be used in support of your charity walks.

Because most of us are quite captivated with the power of the newest telecommunications gadgets like smartphones, it’s really wise that someone or some company came up with a smartphone app for events.
