Hinckley Town Centre Partnership and Hinckley Business Improvement District have launched mobile applications for Google Android mobile devices and Apple iPhones - the Hinckley Town Centre App.
The Apps provide local residents and visits with a full town centre business directory, events guide, local information, maps and details of current Loyalty Card offers.
Increasing reliance on smartphones looks set to continue to grow. Consumers see mobile apps as an increasing benefit when downloadable to phones and tablets, all of which are becoming more central to everyday life.
Jonathan White (previous Business Development Manager for Hinckley Town Centre Partnership) said,
"It is predicted that by 2016, 44 billion mobile Apps will have been downloaded and we are proud that Hinckley is now the first Town in Leicestershire to embrace this technology. We are sure the Apps will make it even easier for people to locate the products and services they require and available to them in Hinckley Town Centre, as well as allowing them to keep up to date with Town Centre events and promotions."
The Apps are available for FREE download at Google's App Marketplace and the Apple App Store.
