I tried to use Minneapolis by Open Spaces, but it didn’t work. The app loaded fine, but what wasn’t clear was that you needed to create an account in order to view anything–I only figured this out after reading the terms and conditions. And when I tried to create an account, I was unsuccessful. So: deleted!
Then I downloaded this, as a joke:
I had come across it while searching for the previous app, and had a good giggle. Then, in light of my frustrations, I decided to give it a go, as it couldn’t be any worse. I was a little disappointed, as under shopping she lists H&M, MOA, and Patina, but not Hot Topic. Hello, I thought Hot Topic was the natural and logical hangout of babygoths the land over??? Ah well.
I use the State Fair app most summers, because it’s helpful for locating things at the fair. I also have Minnesota 511, which I used this past winter a few times to determine whether it was safe to drive–if the roads are purple, it isn’t. I also already have the Minneapolis snow emergency app; I should probably see if there’s one available for St Paul.
My favorite discovery in this Thing is the MN Museum app. I like that you can choose a museum by topic and/or by location, and although I wish the app did give more information about the museums, I do like that you can launch the sites directly from the app. I think I’m going to keep this one.
