OSSINING, N.Y. - June 16, 2014 - PRLog -- - Coinciding with the launch of the Stamford, CT "Street Seats" event, Otocast, LLC has released version 1.0 of it mobile platform for interactive, narrated audio guides.  The "Otocast" app is available for free in the iTunes store and takes users on a virtual tour of the Stamford summer public art exhibit.

In the exhibit, 40 benches have been decorated by local artists and placed around downtown Stamford, CT.  The Otocast app provides a visual catalog of the benches as well as descriptive text, photos, directions and additional narration provided by the the artists themselves.

In addition to Stamford, the app also includes tours of lower Manhattan, Central Park and a botanic garden in New Brunswick, Canada.  "I wanted to include a variety of tours in the initial release, so people would understand that the app could be used for any sort of guide - art, architecture, gardens, hostorical sites - anything where people could use more information to gain a better understanding of their surroundings," said app creator Eric Feinstein of Otocast, LLC.  "Additionally, I believe that the audio commentary, and the resulting longer engagement encourages exploration and discovery and benefits the community and local economy."

An upcoming release of the app will include integration with social media services such as Facebook and Twitter and provide improved search functionaliies as the innventory of content increases.  Columbia, MO and Hamilton, OH are next to be included.  Both of these town are adopting the app as a better way to promote their permanent public art collections.  The app is allows them to update the guides within a few hours if pieces are added or removed from the collection, as opposed to the current processes requiring printing and re-printing maps, which can quickly become outdated.

For more information on the Otocast app, or any of the tours, please visit them on the web at www.otocast.com, or contact them via email at: info@otocast.com.
