The 4 Apps Everyone in DC Should Have on Their Phones

Sponsored post: The 4 Apps Everyone in DC Should Have on Their Phones

DC is a cultural hotspot, and it’s pretty easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle. Not to worry though, as whether you’re new to the town or DC Born & Raised, your phone can be the single most important tool you could have for getting around.

And we’re not just talking about calling your friends for help with directions either. Gaming Realms, the company behind new gaming portal Total Gold, says that “There were an estimated 1 billion Smartphone users at the end of 2012, representing 17% of total mobile users”. With this number continually growing, there’s a good chance that you’re a smartphone owner too. What’s more, with some studies showing that most internet use is done through a phone, you’ve probably used your phone to access information about local gigs and restaurants in the past. You can, however, significantly cut back on the time it takes you to get around with some of these mobile apps:

1. DC Rider
People don’t usually drive around in DC, and many of them take public transportation to get where they need to go. DC Rider makes things so much easier and simpler by giving you updated time tables of the Metro. You can even see fare info with this app!

2. Happy Hour DC
Looking to celebrate happy hour but too far away from EatsPlace? Happy Hour DC gives you a list of bars and establishments offering happy hour nearby. The list of bars is pretty extensive too.

3. Going Out Guide
The Washington Post’s Going Out Guide promises to give you all the information you could ever need about DC’s entertainment scene. The app even lets you buy tickets to events online, so you can navigate DC with ease.

4. Open Table
Ever had to make restaurant reservations on-the-go? Open Table gives you the opportunity to do just that. Simply scroll through the restaurants with open tables, tap the table you want to reserve, and it’s yours! Over 20,000 restaurants in North America are compatible with Open Table, so you can use this app even outside of DC.

Do you have any other apps that help you navigate DC life?

Ms. Chang Goes to Washington

Happy Entrepreneurship Month! Last week EatsPlace had the great honor of being invited to the White House as a winner of the SBA Growth Accelerator Fund competition.

Accelerators and incubators were invited to fly (in my case I took metro) to Washington for an innovation summit at the White House. It was a wonderful celebration of American hard work and ingenuity, as well as a great way to connect with fellow incubators. Thank you so much to the SBA, Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet and Kim Peyser for organizing networking opportunities, briefings about both government and private sector resources, and making us feel like real Beltway insiders.

Dwayne Moore, one of the owners of DC Born & Raised, was in attendance as an EatsPlace entrepreneur. DCB&R is currently serving dinner and brunch at EatsPlace. How far we’ve come…this is when we first met almost 2 years ago!
