"It's something different. I think they've made it pretty simple and loaded it with what we need, one volunteer said.Event organizers said the special apps are provided by the Internet search engine Yelp, RTV6's Eboné Monet reported.Host committee member Diane Boyce called members of the street team quarterbacks and said theyll don bright yellow flags so that they can be easily spotted in the crowds."To our knowledge, the level of fan interaction and customer service of what we're providing, in terms of whether it's the app or whether it's through our text campaign or Facebook and Twitter, well be the most connected Super Bowl in history, Boyce said.Organizers said the quarterbacks will direct visitors to Lucas Oil Stadium and other popular areas, including Massachusetts Avenue and Broad Ripple.
