Footsqueek are giving Charities, Sports Teams and Good Causes the opportunity to win a free mobile smart phone app during July and August 2011.
There are now more than 500,000 apps in the apple app store (Apple, 2011) with more than 1 billion mobile app downloads in the week leading up to Christmas 2011.
Mobile apps can be used to provide a key communication tool which is particularly useful to membership led organisations but the cost if often prohibitive meaning that organisations are not able to take advantage of the resource.
Anyone interested in entering the competition should like the FaceBook page www.facebook.com/Footsqueek where details of how to enter will be published on Monday 9th July 2012.
Steve Westgarth (Managing Director) said “Mobile apps are becoming more prevalent in everyday life however good causes often miss out because they don’t have the financial resources to commit to the development cost.Footsqueek hopes to demonstrate that a mobile app can be of huge benefit to smaller organisations by building a free app for a local good cause.”
