There’s a new App for Gibraltar so that we can find places to eat, shop and visit from the convenience of our phone and see reviews prior to spending any hard earned cash. For those that haven’t already, I’d recommend starting by downloading the app via either of the links below.
GibLad spoke to the founder Jake about the App to see what it’s all about
“The app has been created to provide local businesses with a new medium through which to engage existing and potential new customers, both Local and Tourist! Think TripAdvisor, but with a wider selection of categories, a lot more local information and focused purely on Gibraltar.
From an end User perspective, we have a bit of everything, a wide variety of business listings and categories, a comprehensive database of tourist locations and other useful information such as emergency contact numbers, duty pharmacy, ATM’s, petrol stations, car parks, public toilets, leisure areas, tourist information and events, making it attractive to everyone living, working and visiting the Rock.
From a Business perspective, we’ve focused on ease of functionality and use. To make that possible, we developed a second app, which is solely for our Clients’ use. With the CG-Client app, Businesses are able to manage their CityGuide Gibraltar listing from any Android or iOS mobile device, at any time, day or night. Update contact details and descriptions, post photos, upload offers and events, view customer ratings and comments and even respond to them, all within the Client app. Customers see the changes straight away within the public app.
Both apps have been very well received. We’re getting a lot of positive feedback from Users and Clients. Less than a month since go-live live and we have over 150 businesses signed up and more joining every day. We’ve also been selected as the Official App of the 2019 Natwest International Island Games, which are being hosted in Gibraltar next summer. With new features in development we’re excited for what’s to come and are looking for as many ways as possible to spread the word and get the people of Gibraltar behind it.”
