Utica Area Smartphone Apps

Tablet PC and touchscreen smartphone

There’s an app for that. Seriously, take a look at all the apps on your phone or tablet. Many local businesses have apps, but what general Utica area apps are out there?  We did a few searches on the Apple App Store and found these. Almost all of them are available through the Google Play Store as well and they’re all free. As always, use common sense when you’re downloading anything to your device.


 Utica’s Parks & Parkway System

CNY Conservancy

The Central New York Conservancy just released a new app that makes it easy to navigate and enjoy Utica’s park system. Peter Falzarine of the Conservancy said this about the app:

We developed it to show residents and visitors to the Mohawk Valley the beautiful Olmsted parks and its many trails, points of interest, photos and more. (CNY Conservancy)


GoCentroBus

GoCentroBus
CNY Regional Transportation Authority

The Centro Bus app is a must have if you ever have to take a city bus. This app covers Utica area bus routes as well as Syracuse. You can use the Trip Planner to figure out the best routes and save favorites.


Boilermaker Results

Boilermaker Results
Boilermaker Road Race

Did you run the Boilermaker or know someone who ran? Did you know you can view current and past year race results for both the 15K and 5K in this app? The new app was just unveiled for this year’s 40th anniversary of the race. Search options include name, city, state, country, year, age group and gender. There is also a “selfie” feature to post directly to social media and live runner tracking. You’ll have to wait until next year to use those features though.


Utica 311

Capraro Technologies via Apple App Store

This app is a great tool for city residents. Utica 311 was launched early this year as a way for residents and businesses to communicate with various city departments. It allows users to report “non-emergency” issues to the city. This app is free and you do have to register, but it appears to only allow registration from city residents.


Discover Herkimer County

Discover Herkimer County
Herkimer County Chamber of Commerce

This app has hundreds of listings, covering just about anything you could want to do in Herkimer County. From farmer’s markets to fitness, public wi-fi to trails, recreation and attractions – this is an extremely useful app for both residents of Herkimer County and visitors. We were surprised to find that Oneida County doesn’t have a similar app.

There are also apps like The Pizza Pusher and OrderIt, apps for the Utica OD, Utica National, Bank of Utica, local schools, restaurants and many more. Of course we have our own personal favorite – the Lite 98.7 Mobile App. If you have any other favorite local/regional apps, let us know in the comments.
