    A great way to keep track of all that is going on in Ottawa. I don't know how many times i've missed an event, simply because I didn't know about it or it has not been updated properly. This will definitely help a lot!

  2. Luke Borgeouis

    What a useful app...Just things like knowing about the Vodou exhibit at the museum has sold me right away. Great idea

  3. Steve Donohue

    Awesome, the map locator goes along with it well too...

  4. Ethan Werner

    good stuff- it'll help to discover all of the things going on in the city and easily find them. Well done

    This one should win! There is not enough information about everything and a lot of the events are not updated by the City. With more awareness like this, there would be a larger turnout for events and stuff. Great design too! Really nice looking app!!
