Main Street goes mobile!

Is your community part of the national distrx network? Main Street directors and community managers across the country now have a FREE tool to reach today’s huge mobile audience.
How it Works

Get the app on


Apptivities are app-based activities that can be added to your community's mobile app (initial setup fee applies). Examples include walking tours, scavenger hunts, StoryHunt™ Adventures for kids, and other contests and games that use the mobile app and cutting-edge proximity technology. Participants locate stops on an interactive map and as they approach, content appears on their phone automatically, with pictures, animations, audio or video with information or instructions. District Managers receive detailed participant reports. Apptivities can be rethemed and reused as often as you like.

A FREE Mobile App for your Community

is a free location-aware mobile app designed specifically for Main Street communities. As mobile users enter your district, they receive a welcome greeting, and the app opens to reveal everything a visitor wants to know about your community: area events, parking locations, local attractions, map, and a business directory by category. Best of all, when the same visitor travels to another Main Street community, the same mobile app transforms to become the app for that community.

There is no cost to your Main Street and local businesses to participate. Merchants create comprehensive business listings and promotional offers, including in-app and web page listings - all at no cost to the business.

The distrx mobile app also powers historic walking tours and other “apptivities” to engage visitors and invite them to participate in the community.

How it Works


We’ll create your mobile app and turn control of the content over to you. Download the free distrx app on the App Store and Google Play.


Create a welcome greeting your app users receive as they arrive in your district. Add pictures, parking and attraction info, website and social media links, and upcoming events. These features are all at no cost to your district.


Your local businesses create complete business listings, with the same control of their content you enjoy for your district overall. Merchants create promotional offers to appear in the mobile app and online.


We are thrilled to offer merchants in our Main Street districts the opportunity to participate in this exciting new technology.  Now our small local businesses can welcome customers with personalized greetings and promotions and be part of a nationwide listing.
