Screenshots for St George Parade's App
Posted by administrator in Parade of Homes Image for Screenshots for St George Parade's App

The annual St George Area Parade Of Homes starts this weekend in beautiful Southern Utah (my home town).  With 28 homes built by master craftsmen, and a good weather forecast, we're hoping for an excellent parade.  Online ticket sales are up over last year, which is also encouraging. This parade charges $15 per ticket and uses ParadeSmart's ticket scanning solution.  The parade draws about 40,000 visitors from the region and is a significant event in our community.

To prepare for this first parade of the year, the ParadeSmart team has rebuilt our custom app from the ground up. Most of the improvements are things that would make app geeks cry with glee (such as a complicated solution to serving information when offline and syncing when network connectivity is restored, and live updates to the core of the app).  There have also been significant cosmetic improvements as well.  Here are some screenshots of the St George Area Parade Of Homes app, available on the app stores to download for free.
