We build you an App specific to your local area

Your iPhone and Android Apps

The "My Saddleworth" example helps local businesses to promotes their services and products using the latest mobile technology. We have added a 2 extra tiled menus this app to enhance the Places and Media Sections.

List your business in the Places directory in the relevant category. Include detailed descriptions, opening times, map references and contact details.   


Promote your Special Offers through our Deals Section. Link straight through to your own website to complete orders and bookings.


Publicise your Events such as Quiz Nights, Themed Evenings or Musical Performances. Create reminders by adding these to your calendar.


We use Push Notifications to keep our users up to date with the latest offers  and promotions.

Content Management

All content in the mobile app is managed by a web based content management system.

In addition to entering data about individual businesses the latest events, jobs and special offers can be entered here.

This is also where you are able to manage and configure any Loyalty Schemes for participating Clients.

Any push notifications you send to users are controlled from here.

Social Media Integration

In this example below we display events direct from your Facebook Page. This is a live page and it behaves exactly as you would expect within the app.

We are also able to integrate from other sources including:

  • Events from Facebook, Bandsintown and Eventbrite

  • Photo albums from Facebook and Instagram

  • Business Page posts from Facebook 

  • Videos from Facebook, Youtube or Vimeo

  • Feeds from Twitter and Instagram

If you don't use Social Media or prefer to keep your data exclusive to App users then, just use our CMS input your News and media. 

Also embeds in your Website

With just a few lines of code we can embed the same data in your website.

In this example Event data is first entered into your Facebook page. It is then elegently reproduced on your Website and within the mobile App.


This feature is fully respnsive so it will work if your website is viewed on a desktop or on a mobile.

Promoting your App

It is important to generate as many downloads as possible. If you already run a local newspaper then running a series of adverts to encourage people to download the app can be very effective.


This can be supported by a poster campaign. Most businesses that feature in the app will be happy to display a poster in their premises. 

In addition to printed media we have found that local Social Media channels can also produce great results.


Running competitions that are exclusive to App users is also a great way of encouraging downloads.


The more downloads you generate the greater your circulation.


Our mission is to support local communities with apps that are tailored to fit local requirements. In addition to providing local business listings we also provide a market place for local products, events and services. 

By keeping our monthly charges low we are able to deliver a cost effective solution with potential to generate substantial revenue streams without the high costs of printed media.
