"Portland Insider" App Unearths the Rose City's Underground Gems


The latest edition of Portland Insider-the travel app that helps keep Portland weird-is packed with new hidden gems and now available on Google Play for Android users

Portland, Oregon (I-Newswire) January 25, 2013 - Now available for Android users, the latest edition of "the travel app that helps keep Portland weird" incorporates new features and reader-requested updates.

Through the interactive comments feature, Portland Insider users prompted author RG Coleman to list more offbeat events and quirky restaurant favorites. "Please submit ideas to add," suggested one reviewer. "This is a monumental work and YOU help make it better."

Responding to user comments, Coleman also added a new "Reader Recommended" category. Other new features of the updated app include video and links to the entry's Twitter and Facebook feeds.

The app is now packed with hundreds of new photos and dozens of additional and unusual sights, eateries and activities in Portland, Oregon.

Unlike pay-for-placement travel guides, each Portland Insider entry has been personally researched and endorsed by the author, who tells it like it is with a snarky sense of humor.

The the on-the-go travel guide-designed for visitors, those new to town, and residents who seek unique activities beyond the mainstream-has been helping iPhone and iPad users explore the colorful corners of Portland since its introduction in 2011.

Published by Sutro Media, the interactive travel guide is sortable by price, neighborhood and category. The app, available for purchase from iTunes and Google Play for $2.99, includes local festivals and events, fun facts about public art and architecture, unique places to eat and shop, and quirkier categories like "Offbeat Installations" and "Who knew? History", which features oddities and lore about PortlandŠ¼s place in the past.

Author RG Coleman is a travel blogger, writer, and marketing and public relations professional. Learn more about her work online at http://www.airstreaming.net/rg-coleman
