A new mobile phone app has been launched off the back of a popular website showcasing what Northampton has to offer.
The new iPhone app is an extension of the Love Northampton website which has been designed to showcase the best of the town’s heritage, events and shopping.
The app, which is now available to downlaod for free, features places to go, things to go, journeys to plan and restaurants and bars to visit.
There are also offers, discount vouchers and loyalty schemes on the app.
Cllr David Mackintosh, leader of Northampton Borough Council, said: “The Love Northampton website has proved a very popular medium for publicising what is great about the town.
“I am delighted that we are now able to take what is on the website one step further by presenting it on a mobile platform.
“There is so much to love about Northampton – the town has a wonderful history and a very bright future and we want to shout it from the rooftops.
“The iPhone app enables visitors to the town centre and other shopping areas with up-to-date information about things to do, attractions to see and places to eat and drink.
“We want residents, shoppers, visitors and tourists to spend their time and money in the town and the app will be able to signpost some great value suggestions.
“From free parking to fantastic shopping bargains, we are demonstrating quite clearly that Northampton is the place to be and that there is very little point in wasting petrol money by going elsewhere.”
