CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Organizers with the Democratic National Convention unveiled a mobile phone and tablet app to help people navigate Charlotte during the convention. The app includes an interactive map showing convention venues and nearby restaurants and businesses.

"Hopefully, it will give visitors the opportunity to get the best of Charlotte,” said Nikki Sutton, social media director for the DNC.

Sutton helped design the DNC 2012 Mobile Phone App. The features she was excited about included finding restaurants around where people are staying and how much time they have to eat.

Eyewitness News tried out the app in front of the Time Warner Cable Arena. It suggested trying Zada Jane’s Corner Cafe on Central Avenue.

Executive Chef Edmond Bullock was thrilled by the app and the idea of showcasing small businesses in Charlotte.

"That would be a good option for people that don't know Charlotte to come see, you know, an eclectic side,” Bullock said.
