A new smartphone app franchise has launched its first venture into Northern Ireland.

The Big Local App brings together local businesses, news, events and information in various towns and cities across the UK.

Each listed business has a mini-app providing contact and general information, as well as features to engage customers.

It also has over 100 business categories and a voucher system which businesses of the city can use along with a mini-app to reach out to potential customers who use this type of technology.

Franchisee Martin Duddy said that the Big Local App parent company has already reported good feedback.

"The app is very user-friendly and has great information from the main institutions of the city such as Belfast International Airport, Belfast City Council, leisure centres and Queen's University to name a few," he said. "Additionally the app is also packed with news, tourist information, cinema and arts listings and information about Belfast Zoo, Titanic Belfast, the Odyssey Arena and the Waterfront Hall.

"I'm confident that the app will provide a great service to visitors, tourists and the local community," he added.

The app is free to download at the App Store and Google Play.
