The City of Brotherly Love went digitial Monday with its announcment of the first Philly phone app.

Mayor Michael Nutter announced Philly’s first free interactive mobile application.

Find Your Philly uses SCVNGR technology on iPhone and Android. It is the first time a city anywhere in the world used such technology for an app, said Philly.com.

The app gives you challenges to complete as you make your way on different “treks” through Philly. If you beat the challenges, you can earn points that unlock new features.

A former Drexel student designed the app to teach people about the city.

Download it whether you live here, or if you’re just visiting -- you might learn something.
