OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - There’s a new mobile sightseeing app that compiles information about more than 1,000 free attractions and recommendations from local experts.

The app includes deals for visitors to this week’s U.S. Open golf tournament but other features can be used any time.

The app includes free audio tours, including walking tours of waterfront communities Kirkland and Edmonds; recommendations for selfie stops, with sharable “PhotoOps” - a photo-sharing platform of local sights - like Volunteer Park’s Black Sun in Seattle, which inspired Soundgarden’s hit “Black Hole Sun,” and the downtown Seattle Escala Tower, made famous by E.L. James’ “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
