ShopMP Phone Application Launch

A phone application for Mt. Pleasant businesses and customers

The developers here at McKula Inc. recently had the great experience of working with the Mt. Pleasant business district authority to bring a phone application idea to fruition.  It’s always enjoyable to work on something that will benefit the entire community and the businesses within, and that’s the opportunity we had over the past few months.  ShopMP is a phone application that will help connect the small businesses in the Mt. Pleasant area with their customers.  We’ve seen large corporations make various specials available to users who download their application, and ShopMP does that only in a wide scale to all the businesses in the business authority area.

This particular application was developed utilizing Cordova with Ionic serving as the front end, and was developed for both Android and Apple phones.  The application utilizes push notifications to alert users of new specials or deals that have been added by local businesses in the area.  When opening the app, users are first presented with a “business of the day” providing information about a local business as well as a special or deal that the business may be offering at that time.

Along with the business directory, users can browse upcoming events in the area, a list of important local contacts, and a business directory that is searchable by category.  They also have access to a list of specials or deals that are currently being offered locally.  Businesses will have access to all the data associated with views and clicks of both their business individually as well as any specials or deals that they offer.  Download the application today by searching “ShopMP” on Google Play or the App Store.  For more information about the Mount Pleasant Business District Authority, click here.
