Official Hollywood Walk of Fame App Introduces New Interactive Experience
Designed by MediaMine in cooperation with Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the new Official Hollywood Walk of Fame app introduces users to an interactive experience with their favorite celebrities. Combining geo-location technology with information from the location’s historical archives, this app paves the boulevard for the future of tourism.
Plan your itinerary for exploring the stars along the Walk of Fame, search for your favorite stars, and receive discounts or special offers for local businesses. The app provides photos, videos, speeches, bios, and facts on each star. To find a particular celebrity, scroll through the extensive list of stars either alphabetically or by the year of induction. Test your knowledge of pop culture with the fun trivia and share your results on social media!
The app’s premium features include the ability to create your own personal star, which you can also share with friends via email, Facebook, and Twitter. From the vaults of the Hollywood Chamber, users can unlock special videos of Walk of Fame ceremonies and Star photos of a select celebrity.
The “Explore the Walk” feature allows users to virtually transport themselves to anywhere on Hollywood Boulevard from any location in order to plan their next visit. Find and save your favorite celebrities to a list, ensuring the best way to remember the location of their star. Users can also simply click on the “I’m There!” pin to find their location on the Walk of Fame.
Visitors can stroll through the legendary sidewalks with access to its history right at their fingertips. In addition to acting as a handheld tour guide, the app also acts as an insider for deals on local restaurants, attractions, shopping, and more. Earn discounts for the Hollywood Wax Museum or use a coupon for dinner along Hollywood’s iconic streets.
In the future, MediaMine plans to equip the app with features such as a scavenger hunt, language translations, and also the opportunity to insert your favorite celebrity in a photo captured in real-time on the Walk of Fame.
The Official Hollywood Walk of Fame app, available for the iPhone, can be downloaded for free from the iTunes Store. The Android version will debut later this year. To receive the newest data for the app, users can click on the “Refresh data” option to download additional content for their favorite stars. Ongoing updates and new discounts are available for users who register.
