A Baylor University college student from Brenham has developed a new app for things to do in Waco.
Chris Holle, the son of Ken and Andrea Holle of Brenham, is the co-founder of a new app called “Town Trotter”. Holle, who is a junior at Baylor, has been working since August on the computer coding for the app. His co-founder, sophomore Chris Nunn, is handling the business side of the app. “Town Trotter” was designed to encourage users to visit a variety of restaurants, businesses, parks and other places in the Waco area. Businesses and organizations offer promotions for users to “check in” using the app, and the users earn “Trotter Points” for completing certain challenges. The categories for challenges range from drinks to outdoor activities to shopping to workouts.
In a story originally published in the Baylor student newspaper, “The Lariat”, Holle and Nunn said they are just entering the beta testing phase of the app. They hope that “Town Trotter” opens the eyes of incoming freshmen and Baylor students to the large number of things to do in Waco. If successful, Holle and Nunn, along with two other Baylor students, plan to expand the app for use at other universities and the general population.
