Big Local App - Preston
The Big Local App is a mobile app developed for the local community by AppHouse UK. It is a dedicated local resource directory bringing together businesses, local news, events and information to provide real value to users in a way that national directories cannot.
In BLA, each listed partner and business becomes an important facet of the app, bringing fresh, up-to-date information and a real reason for users to keep opening and exploring its content.
- View up-to-date local headlines, council and tourist information
- Find local businesses, such as pubs, shops, restaurants and taxis - via a simple few taps
- Using your GPS, the app will also let you search by distance from your location and provide maps and directions.
This local directory will provide a business listing exclusively for companies trading in the local area. Companies can subscribe to the app, giving them a listing in up to two business categories at different service levels.
Whether searching for local event information, council contact details, or entertainment reviews, the Big Local App provides useful reasons for users to open and interact with the app.
