Dillsboro’s mobile web app continues to evolve. Created by computer information systems students in Western Carolina University’s College of Business and promoted by communication students in WCU’s College of Arts & Sciences, the app allows visitors to use their smartphones to connect to the unique attractions and merchants in the town.
Launched last March as part of David Belcher’s installation activities as WCU’s 11th chancellor, Dillsboro mobile web app has evolved from a prototype to near-final product. Over the last year, CIS students have updated graphics and added several features like links to social media sites and the weather.
Public relations students have updated the content of the app by adding more merchants and photographs of storefronts and merchandise. Students are also developing a promotional campaign to get more people to visit Dillsboro’s new mobile website. More information about the “Dillsboro App Discount Days” planned for April 27 and 28 will appear in the April newsletter.
