Today, the City of Tiffin launched a new mobile phone app called “Discover Tiffin,” which gives users information about businesses and services, as well as events and special alerts. The app is available at no cost for both Apple and Android devices. The app was developed by Jake Schaaf with the new local digital development company Fort Ball Digital.
Currently, 50 businesses and organizations have signed up, and all businesses within the city limits of Tiffin can sign up for free on the app itself. Any business can download the app, select “Tools & Links” from the drop down menu, select “List my business!” and enter the information they would like to appear. Any business having issues getting listed can call SIEDC at 419.447.3831 for assistance.
The app has multiple features, including detailed business listings, a calendar of events and even a form to report a city issue. Users can easily search for local restaurants, recreation spots, professional services, worship services or retail shops, and find contact information, hours of operation, directions and a description of the business. A calendar of events provided by TiffinOhio.org, will keep users informed of upcoming events, and users can select an option to receive notifications from the app. There is also an option to report a problem to the city, and even attach a picture to the report.
