Exploring Mobile Applications on the American Shoreline
How can mobile apps be used on the American Shoreline?
On this episode, Peter and Tyler talk with Joe Falcone, Founder and CEO of Phondini Partners, a firm that specializes in mobile application design, development and consulting for coastal communities. Joe and his team have developed a number of interesting mobile apps. The FishLine App connects consumers directly with fisherman at the wharf where seafood can be hand selected out of the hold, and the public can meet and interact with the men and women who harvest our food. The iCoastSide App, a collaboration between Phondini and the Half Moon Bay Coastside Visitor Center, helps inform residents and tourists alike as to the goings on of the San Mateo Coastside region. And, Phondini has developed apps specific to special events, like the famous Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival, which draws over 100,000 visitors into a region with poor cell phone coverage and very limited parking. The app helps communicate with the public and helps visitors maximize their time at the fest. We talk about all of it, on this episode of the American Shoreline Podcast.
