This is because you can find all the information you need on this handy app. It is free and very user friendly, as you can access anything you want about Hershey with one click.

It is maintained and updated daily so all information is current! Users never have to worry about information being outdated. They will find everything they need on this Smartphone app.
The company was founded by Trisha Boughter. She was resting after a severe leg injury that forced her to be immobile for 6 months, when she came up with the idea of a new app guide designed especially for Hershey residents and visitors and created the company of howtohershey.com. This Smartphone app helps tourists and residents alike discover the city. Future plans for the company includes expansion of our reach to include other geographic areas
"It's a very exciting new way to stay connected with everything that's going on around town," said Trisha Boughter, founder / president of howtohershey. "You can instantly find all of the great restaurants and local events that are closest to your precise location. You can see where live bands are playing, call to make reservations with one touch and get step-by-step directions from wherever you are right to their doorstep."
"I use the app every day," said local Greg Snyder. "It's the easiest way to find out what's going on around me, right now, whether I'm in a restaurant, the doctor's office, or at the mall. It literally puts Hershey’s social scene right at my fingertips."
"Fortune magazine recently published research clearly showing that mobile devices will soon become the most dominant computing platform on the planet, far exceeding desktop PC usage," said Boughter. "We're very excited to be leading the mobile revolution here in Hershey."
