The inaugural edition of the app includes 177 entries and more than 2,000 photos. It’s got insider tips and money-saving suggestions including links to discount coupons. The app is easy to use; it can be sorted by category (kid friendly, nightlife, lodging, reliable eats, touristy, day trips etc), by cost, neighborhood and distance from the user’s present location.
There are 18 La Jolla entries — and more to come. Current La Jolla entries range from La Valencia Hotel, George’s (restaurant) and The Marine Room to Harry’s Coffee Shop, La Jolla Kayak, Surf Diva and the Gliderport to La Jolla Music Society, MCASD La Jolla, and the La Jolla Playhouse.
In a recent message, Alison added “I did a looong entry on La Jolla Beaches (from Blacks to Windansea) and included my favorite LJ shopping stop: Pomegranate.”
She would “love to know” what else you would like her to include on updated editions. Just leave your suggestions as comments to this post.
Alison is a native San Diegan and spent most of her career at the SD Union-Tribune – first covering the city, then as Travel Editor/Writer/Photographer.
“The bottom line is,” Alison aded, “I know San Diego – and know travel. On the app I show travelers (and locals) around my favorite city.”
The app costs $2.99 at the iTunes store. It’s downloadable to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Buyers get all updates free forever. http://sutromedia.com/apps/San_Diego_Essential_Guide
