Scotiabank Nuit Blanche Night Navigator App now available for iPhone, BlackBerry and Android phones
  
The second edition of the Scotiabank Nuit Blanche Night Navigator App is now available for iPhone, BlackBerry and Android users. It utilizes GPS to help users navigate the event, find the closest projects, vote for Scotiabank People's Choice, join the conversation and view or upload event photos in real-time during Scotiabank Nuit Blanche in Toronto this Saturday night.

The App can be downloaded from the event's website at http://www.scotiabanknuitblanche.ca.

The new Night Navigator App also allows easy access to Share Your Night, a new online platform that gathers tweets, comments, texts, photos and more from event-goers, in real-time. The public can participate and follow the live feeds on Night Navigator, on the event's main and mobile websites, and on screens at the Scotiabank Information Centres on October 2.

The App has been modified from the first edition to allow access for more smartphone users, and requires less bandwidth. Those users who do not have GPS-enabled or supported smartphones can still access the mobile version of the official website (scotiabanknuitblanche.ca) on their mobile browser.

Scotiabank Nuit Blanche is Toronto’s annual all-night celebration of contemporary art, produced by the City of Toronto in collaboration with Toronto’s arts community. It has been honoured with the prestigious "Urban Leadership Award" and the Globe and Mail "Business for the Arts Award" and was voted by NOW Magazine as Toronto’s "Best Art Event" in 2008 and 2009.
