A new smartphone application created by Arizona State University digital media students is now available to help people discover restaurants, night life and other attractions in downtown Phoenix.

The SmartPHX app, downloadable to any smartphone, functions as a concierge. It filters search results according to personal preference and current location and tells users which venues are open and where to find nearby parking and public transportation.

SmartPHX is the first app of its kind for the 1.5-square-mile downtown center of the nation’s sixth-largest city.

The app was developed by students of the New Media Innovation Lab at the WalterCronkite School of Journalism for CityScape. The Phoenix Convention Center also contributed to the development of the app. To download the app, go to on your smartphone’s web browser. Tap + or the iPhone arrow key and then “Add to Home Screen.” Or download from Android market.
