A Vir­ginia City app

Los Angeles Times - - TRAVEL - — Jay Jones

Wi-Fi has ar­rived in Vir­ginia City, Nev., a his­toric min­ing town that is stuck — de­lib­er­ately — in an 1850s time warp. Vir­ginia City, about 25 miles south­east of Reno, sits at 6,200 feet and its cell ser­vice has been spotty. Un­til now, smart­phones have been good mostly for tak­ing pic­tures. But now you can even down­load the free Vir­ginia City app, cour­tesy of the town’s tourism com­mis­sion. The Vir­ginia City Ne­vada app, avail­able for iOS and An­droid, pro­vides in­for­ma­tion for visi­tors as they am­ble along C Street, the main drag filled with shops, restau­rants and mu­se­ums.
