Now there’s a Fillmore app

FOR MORE than a decade, Fillmore merchants have provided a lively illustrated folding map of the shops, entertainment and dining opportunities in the neighborhood. The map, which is updated regularly, helps locals and visitors alike navigate the thriving local business community.

With more than 200 businesses in the neighborhood, there are constant closures, openings and remodels — and lots of special events — it was the launching pad for an interactive app that provides up-to-the-minute notification of news and shopping events generated by neighborhood merchants.

So now there’s an iPhone app for Fillmore Street — one of the first neighborhood apps. You can download the free Fillmore app at the iTunes store or at the neighborhood’s Facebook page.
