Free PROC Smartphone App Launched

Posted on Dec 21, 2011 in News

 
 

We have launched a smart phone app for the Rebel County that is the berries.

The app is currently available for iPhone and Android handsets (with Blackberry to follow in the next few days) and users can download the app from their respective app stores for free anywhere in the world.

The PROC app allows Corkonians and visitors to Leeside to look up what’s on through the app’s live music, cinema, club, theatre and comedy listings. Events can be submitted free of charge via the event guide on PeoplesRepublicOfCork.com.
 

If you have a smartphone you can check gig and club listings anywhere there's a network connection. 

 

The app also has some useful features including a live feed from the city’s car parks so users can see which are full before they arrive into the city centre and a section for tide times and heights – essential for a city built on a marsh!

We have also included the slang dictionary so locals and tourists can brush up on their Cork lingo as well as getting easy access to the PROC discussion forum.

Over half of all Irish adults now own smartphones and as Corkonians are that bit ‘smarter’ than everyone else it’s no surprise that Cork is first past the post with an app. This has been in development for nearly six months and the PROC server was upgraded in September partially to facilitate the app.
 

Check the spaces in any city car park BEFORE you plunge into traffic chaos only to find that the one you were banking on is FULL!


City Council will collaborate on developing the tourist section of the app which is due for completion in time for the 2012 tourist season.
