The EDGE Media Network and www.edgeboston.com debuted it’s Boston Pride App on Tuesday. It is now available for download from the iTunes App Store.

"At EDGE, we believe that the LGBT community is a diverse, dynamic group of individuals," said David Foucher, chief executive officer of EDGE. "Developing this app is another way we achieve the goal of connecting members of the LGBT community together. We’re pleased to be working with Boston Pride on this project and we look forward to seeing people at Boston Pride Week using this app to enhance their celebration experience."
The Boston Pride App is immediately available for iPhone users to download free of cost, from the iTunes App Store while the app will be available for iPad and iTouch users to download shortly after.
