Behold! The Beltline app!

It has arrived! Says Atlanta Beltline Inc. in a press release:

Now planning a trip is easy with a function that guides users on walking, running, or biking tours of the paved and interim trails, as well as highlighting park amenities and other nearby entertainment using geotagged location information. Users can also key in to other information about tours, health and fitness, and Art on the Atlanta BeltLine right from their mobile devices.

"With over a million visitors projected to enjoy the Atlanta BeltLine each year, we want to ensure users have digital resources to maximize their experience," said Paul Morris, President and CEO of Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. "This app is a big step in that direction."

The app has a built-in feedback feature, as well as a "fix-it" link for maintenance issues that can be reported right from the parks and trails. Supporters can donate to the program through the app and become members of the Atlanta BeltLine. The app leverages third-party providers Google and FourSquare to provide additional information about nearby businesses and attractions.

The app also encourages users to try alternate modes of transportation when visiting the Beltline when they request to show parking on the map. Not a bad move.

You can download it at the iTunes Store and Google Play.
