Hoboken bar launches smart phone app
The Shannon: Hoboken bar enters digital age with new “app”
“The Shannon, Hoboken’s premier sports bar, announced today that it will be launching The Shannon Hoboken application for iPhone and Droid on Thursday, April 7, 2011. The launch of The Shannon Hoboken App is another step The Shannon has taken to stay connected to their customers and provide them with information they need, from the tools they use. The App follows the bar’s youtube, facebook, twitter and foursquare offerings.”
“The application is for use on any iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android device. It enables on-the-go users to keep up to date with the daily shenanigans at The Shannon. In addition to accessing our nightly specials, users can play trivia, view pictures, connect with our Facebook page, participate in our loyalty rewards program and receive specials and updates exclusive to app users. Another exciting feature is that for those not familiar with the Hoboken area, the app will pick up your location and give you walking, bus, or taxi directions via Google Maps.
The Shannon is proud to be one of the first local bars to get an app approved by Apple. To introduce the QR codes for the app, The Shannon is hosting a launch party this Thursday, April 7, 2011. The first 50 customers coming in and downloading the app will receive a FREE gift. Anyone with the App between 9 – 11pm will be entered into a drawing to win a trip to Mexico. The codes and link to the app on iTunes will be posted on our website Friday morning.
The iPhone and Android app is another way The Shannon is staying on top as the industry leader and keeping up with the technology our customers are using. Keep watching as we continue to bring enhancements to the App and expand our features.”
The Shannon is located at 106 1st Street.
