Chicago has an App that allows users who are at a Chicago Park Acces to 250 Movies. Kansas City Could KC do something like this with the Smart City downtown?

Not the greatest selection of new releases, and it costs the library $1–$3 everytime somebody uses it. But that's what I mean about licensing being the hard part.
Oh ok, thanks. Is there or are there plans for a companion app for the smart city though? Like one that would be able to give information about downtown attractions and the streetcar based on where you were downtown.
