New app lets you get the most out of your free time Rodney White/The Register
Whether you're looking for nightlife, arts, family activities or dining, the Des Moines Register has you covered. Readers could always count on the Register to be the No. 1 source for entertainment news in Central Iowa, and now that's true everywhere you go with the "Things to Do" mobile app.
BEST LISTS: Each week, Register staffers offer up recommendations for entertainment, dining and adventure. And if you find a list you love, save it or send it to your friends by text, email, Twitter or Facebook. Check them out at DesMoinesRegister.com/BestLists.
PREVIEWS/REVIEWS: You'll find everything you need on shows and events coming to Des Moines -- whether it's the ultimate guide to summer music, events at the Civic Center or the latest concert at Wells Fargo.
THINGS TO DO: We're rounding up the best entertainment, business and community events in the Des Moines metro area in one place. Browse an easy to scan list of up to 30 days, switch to the map view when you're out to see what's nearby or search for details on a specific event. When you find what you want, use the app to get tickets, directions and details right from the venue. The app also allows you to:
•Add the event to your calendar, share it with friends and favorite it (so you can go back later and view your favorites).
•Personalize your calendar in many ways, including what types of events you see and how you view your events list.
SUBMIT EVENTS: If you want to add an event to the calendar, use our web portal to provide details or give us a website or Facebook event page so we can find what we need. And you can edit event details later if things change.
