MyDowntown Mobile® is a branded service offering from Gruskin Group™, an award-winning design firm. For over 30 years, we have been creating high-impact, memorable marketing and design experiences that continually build brand equity for our clients.
MyDowntown Mobile is dedicated to helping you achieve success. With both the Basic and Advanced plan options, our team will setup, design, and post your app in the Apple and Google Play stores. We take the time to learn about your needs and develop a customized design to help you reach your app goals.
89% of consumers’ time spent on media is through mobile apps. Being on their phones is crucial to supporting your marketing efforts.
MyDowntown Mobile was designed to be best suited to serve small to midsize local communities. We typically work with Municipalities and Downtown Business or Special Improvement Districts. If you’re looking to promote growth for your community and local businesses, we are the choice for you.
You'll need an Apple Developer Account, but you can use our Android developer account. Due to changes in Apple's policy, they require that you have your own developer account, which is $99 per year. We will be happy to work with you to setup your account.
You'll need a D-U-N-S® Number (learn more) and Legal Entity Status.
For both plans we’ll take care of the design work and making the app available for download. The biggest difference between the two is that with the Basic plan, you will be handling all of the app data updates and maintenance yourself. With the Advanced Plan you’ll have more of our time made available to you after the app is launched (up to 3 hours per month of our time for Content Updates*) plus more comprehensive phone support.
We support iPhone, Android, and HTML5.
The HTML5 website is intended to be viewed on mobile phones through a mobile web browser as opposed to a “native app” which is installed on your phone from the iPhone or Google Play stores. It will look essentially the same, however since it is not a native app, some features will be missing, including GPS integration and push notifications.
A mobile app allows you to take advantage of native smartphone functions like push notifications and GPS integration. Push notifications have shown to drive significant traffic to mobile apps and the more people are on your app, the more it will help you build your community and brand.
Yes! The app can easily be updated through our Content Management System. Additionally, with the Advanced Plan, we can handle some of those updates for you (up to 3 hours per month*) or we can develop a custom maintenance schedule with you, just ask!
Yes! You’ll have full access to our Content Management System after the app has been launched.
Yes! With the Advanced Plan, we can handle some of those updates for you (up to 3 hours per month*) or we can develop a custom maintenance schedule with you, just ask!
Upon submission to the app stores, it will take a few days for Android apps to be available on the Google Play Store, and up to a week on the Apple App Store.
