Discover Los Angeles, in partnership with the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, has released the Discover L.A. app, a sleekly designed, pocket guide exclusively made for those looking to optimize their experience in the City of Angels.

Packed with rich content and tailored for those looking to explore the best of Los Angeles, the iOS app launch coincides with the start of the busy summer travel season and is available for free download at http://www.discoverlosangeles.com/app.
