AWA will feature live streaming video from art walk events, as well as AWA user submitted photographs, reports, and reviews.

The $1.99 version will be ad free and offer such enhanced features as live, step-by-step maps, a “concierge service” (restaurants, B&Bs, parking), special gallery tours, talks by artists, access to special events, and other premium features.
