Distrx is an innovative new urban and event exploration app that allows people who find themselves in downtown Rochester to unearth information about businesses, interesting events and special offers in the area.

Available for free from the Apple App Store and Google Play, Distrx makes use of iBeacon location sensing technologies to give users information on events and deals in their vicinity. The app makes use of a geo-fencing, meaning users receive specific messages when they enter the district. The iBeacon technology then works to give users personalized greetings and offers when they enter a particular business.

Ultimately, Distrx is truly an exploration app in the broadest sense in that it allows people to explore and take advantage of everything from special deals to cool events in their vicinity.
