[August 09, 2013]  The Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Integrity Data, has created a new mobile app for the Lincoln Art & Balloon Festival to help festival-goers have all the event information in the palm of their hands anytime, night or day. This free mobile app is designed to help festival guests maximize their experience and time at the event.

"We are hoping that the mobile app will help enhance the experience for guests to the festival," said Andi Hake, executive director of the chamber of commerce. "Finding a way to better communicate with our guests has been an ongoing challenge for years. It is our hope that many people will download the new app and find answers to all of their questions and help prepare them for the weekend's festivities.

"We couldn't have accomplished this project without the help from Integrity Data. Patrick Doolin made the process of getting all the data in this app and all the many decisions that go along with creating something like this seem less daunting than I had originally expected," said Hake.

When the app is downloaded, the viewer can look at the festival's schedule of events at both the Logan County Airport and downtown Lincoln. Viewers can see which artists, crafters, wineries, breweries and barbecue competitors will be present. The app also has a section dedicated to the hot air balloon pilots, even featuring pictures of the hot air balloons and a biography of each pilot. In addition, the new app gives information on the live entertainment that will perform downtown and at the airport.

Guests can set their own schedules in the mobile app to help them plan for the weekend's events, get notifications about balloon flight and glow times, and receive any other pertinent information that may be released during the weekend.

Out-of-town guests at the event can find information about the community, directions, hotels and restaurants to help them navigate through Lincoln. And if that is not enough information, the complete festival program can be viewed under the documents section.

The mobile app is now available for download and is available for both iPhone and Android. All other phones can view a mobile website that will give them the same information.
