Scion and XLR8R Update City Guide App

Scion and XLR8R Update City Guide App

Here is a bit of info Gear Diary received recently regarding a Scion-related app update. It is not a Scion owner-specific app, rather it’s one that seeks to enhance the lifestyle of the Scion demographic.

The City Guide app now offers more than 15 locales in the database, but Dallas/Fort Worth, who is hosting the big game this weekend, is not among them.

I did check out the Austin guide as I was visiting the capital city recently, but the place we had dinner and drinks at (The Highball) was not listed. It was a cool restaurant/bar/nightclub/bowling alley complete with retro furnishings, swing-style live band and one packed dance floor filled with jitterbuggers. (I guess the Scion lifestyle doesn’t include bowling or ’bugging.)

But hey, did I mention the app is free?

Here are a few of their words:

Scion and XLR8R are very excited to announce the completely redesigned City Guide app for iPhone and Android! With Version 2, it’s never been easier for users to find coolest and most unusual hot spots in over 15 US cities!
