We are very excited to announce the launch of our first iOS app. The BayFish app is now available to download for free from the App store, with the Android version to follow in the next couple of weeks.
The app was developed to allow a new and direct channel of communication between The Bay Fish & Chips and its customers. The main features of the app are the interactive menu which shows customers nutritional information, food miles and supplier information – even as far as the name of the boat your fish was caught on – and display all of the food suppliers on an map. Customers can also check out the daily specials that Calum (director and chef) updates directly from the shop through his digital menu.
Calum wanted to use the app as a way to communicate directly with customers. For this reason, the app is socially integrated with YouTube and Twitter, and customised feedback forms are an important feature of the app, allowing the user to rate their experience at the shop.
We were excited to get stuck in with this development, and project Calum’s passion for food provenance and sustainability, whilst creating a useful tool for customers. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Calum on such this innovative and customer friendly app, and are looking forward to seeing it in action. The app is downloadable from the App Store today. For those Android lovers out there (myself included) the app should make an appearance on Google Play within the next 2 weeks!
