Canal Street website launches new app for Android

By James McLaughlin

Fans of Manchester's village have now even more ways to keep up to date, after Canal Street launched a free app for Android mobile phones yesterday.

The app builds on the recent success of their similar programme for iPhone systems, released in August.

Nick Coulthurst of the CanalStreet.co.uk team said: “Our aim with these apps is to make them simple and straightforward. One button, click and away you go.

“There are over 2,000 users of the iPhone app and we hope to double the success through releasing the version for Android phones.”

The app offers a news feed direct from the Canal Street website, access to regular competitions and updates on activities and businesses in the area.
