A Belfast tech venture has created an app that will attempt to stimulate the sense of community typical of mass events in light of the coronavirus spread and social distancing measures.

Global Heartbeat has said its Poplight app will allow people to stay safe "without missing out on the craic".

Described as a Mass Synchronised Multimedia App, the company's new app allows users to access events with other users via the speaker/sound, vibration, screen, flashlight and networking protocol functions of a device.

The new app is accessible to thousands of devices at anyone time.

Liam Lynch, spokesperson for Global Heartbeat said: "As long as you have an internet connection, anyone anywhere can cheer, sing, scream and cry together simultaneously as one united voice at exactly the same time."
