Discover L.A. App

I saw this in the Los Angeles Times Travel Section:
Are you visiting L.A. or a local looking for a day out? Check out the Discover L.A. app

What’s hot: The app uses proprietary artificial intelligence to optimize the user’s Los Angeles experience. “Through smart technology, the app literally knows to serve up soup and indoor dining suggestions on cool days; the closest beaches and ice cream on warm days,” said Don Skeoch, chief marketing officer of Discover Los Angeles. Don’t miss the “Scavenger Hunt” with the pin and map icon in the lower left corner of the app. You can check in at 16 ice cream hot spots across town and unlock stamps for your personal passport and to win prizes. If this is your first visit to L.A., click on the notes board in the lower right section of the app to tap into practical advice such as a Beginner’s Guide to L.A., Metro Map, driving advice and introductions to neighborhoods.


What’s not: The “Stay” section was well organized according to travel styles and neighborhood descriptions, but I couldn’t find a way to sort the hotel search results by star rating or price.
Avaiable in Google Play and the App Store:
