Locally written iPhone application shows visitors around Charleston

A local writer’s efforts have produced an iPhone application meant to help boost Charleston tourism.

The Charleston Essentials Guide includes 150 must-do’s in the Holy City and beyond. The application includes almost 700 photographs showing the attractions, restaurants, gardens and other points of interest in the tour. An interactive map is included, and a built-in taxi estimator gives approximate cab fares.

Charleston writer Liz Rennie wrote the application, which sells for $1.99 at the Apple iTunes App Store.

Rennie said, “One of the many great things about Charleston is that it’s always evolving ­— not unlike this technology. The app is a mutable reference guide that will be updated regularly.”
