Panama City Beach in Florida has launched a mobile app, available for Android, iPhone and iPad users which showcases all the coastal community offers. Visitors can use the app to map their day, check out deals and packages, see what events are coming up and everything else a good travel app does.

Dan Rowe, president and CEO of the Panama Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau, said the new technology "offers our visitors a progressive yet amusing way to enhance their vacation," planning everything for the "sandy-bottom bunch" to "eco seekers."

You can jump start your planning with the "Decision Maker" tool, which selects dining, lodging or attractions based on criteria you enter, such as Gulf-front restaurants, kid-friendly stays or adventure-warrior options. Once in the destination, the app can be used as a GPS to find stuff using the "Near Me" function. Check it all out and download the app at www.visitpanamacitybeach.com
