Ten Beautiful City Mobile Apps

Over 64% of American adults use a mobile phone to get important, relevant information (up from 35% in the spring of 2011). Because of the increasing reliance on smartphones, local governments across country are using city mobile apps as the “digital front door” to the city.

Even if a city has a mobile app, however, doesn’t mean their digital front door is as welcoming to citizens as it could be. Sometimes cities have multiple mobile apps, meaning citizens must download many apps to receive all the valuable information. Sometimes cities’ mobile apps are cumbersome, creating a negative or confusing user experience for citizens.

Here at SeeClickFix, we’re proud to partner with city partners to provide their citizens with one, branded, fully customizable mobile app for all city information. Now, citizens of these cities have a beautiful, simple, and welcoming digital front door to enter into learning more about where they live.

Here are just ten examples of beautiful city mobile apps:
