Townapps have announced the recent acquisition of Town Guide Apps, a market leading provider of mobile town guide apps in the United Kingdom, with the intention of delivering world-class local app solutions.

The acquisition now makes Townapps the forerunner in the area of local app development for towns, small cities and local communities, enhancing an increasing app portfolio of 85 app locations across 4 countries.

In the past two years Townapps has established itself as the leading provider of smartphone apps for towns and local communities in Ireland – providing locals and visitors with up to date information and special offers that increases time and money spent locally. Having redesigned and redeveloped the turn-key app platform in early 2015 reflecting valuable user feedback, Townapps are rapidly growing and rolling out the enhanced new app across the United States, Canada, Ireland and the United Kingdom.

Austin Comerton, Vice President of Townapps, comments, “We now have partners from Seaford in Sussex to Canmore, Western Canada, nestled in the Canadian Rockies. Our partners range from semi-retired individuals and couples to local town councils, chambers of commerce and local media publishing companies.”

Combining the strengths of two leading providers of mobile city guide apps will provide customers with access to enhanced services and product features including Local News, What’s On, Local Weather and improved in-app search facilities. Each local app partner is supported with the digital marketing expertise of the Townapps team together with the support and development team based at Townapps headquarters in Ireland.
