Overview

To encourage people to shop locally in Fingal and give local businesses a much needed boost, I propose a 'Fingal Deals' App. Most businesses regularly run specials and price offers, but often have no real means of broadcasting them directly to local people, and national 'Deal' websites can be sticky business often involving a high degree of risk. Most people love deal hunting and grabbing a bargain, especially in these hard economic times. This app will satisfy both business and customer needs by showcasing all of the special offers and discounts available in fingal businesses currently. All types of businesses will be included so whether your looking to go out for dinner or find a sewing class you can find a great offer.

This app will contain information on all Fingal businesses. A search will be categorised into business type, for example, 'Electrical', 'Gift', 'Beauty, 'Classes', 'Restaurants', etc to allow ease of search. When a category is searched, a list of the corresponding businesses and small amount of offer information will be displayed in a list. When you click on a business an individual page will appear where business name, a picture, contact details, location and web links are listed. On the main body of their pages, businesses can list the discounts or offers they are currently operating. If a businesses deal can be bought online through their website, the weblink they list will port them to the company website.

Businesses can submit their deals, and update their deals, through a website which automatically updates the app. Each business can also register and receive login details through this site. This means that the app database will constantly be growing and Fingals business data will constantly be growing. The business can include a start and expire date on their offer and any other information they wish, for example, if the offer is available instore, over the phone, etc.

Advertising for the app will then be done through word of mouth and through businesses who will naturally encourage people to check out the app so their offer will be viewed.

Idea: TaxiAngel is the world’s first taxi related app of its kind serving the following 3 purposes: Using data made available by Fingal County Council TaxiAngel provides the user of the locations of all taxi ranks in the Fingal County Council area. Based on the relevant dataset supplied by Fingal County Council all taxis using the Fingal taxi ranks will be supplied with smartphone barcodes for the TaxiAngel scan system. TaxiAngel provides security for passengers as when they sit into the taxi the TaxiAngel app allows them to scan the barcode and store the taxi number, location and time in the TaxiAngel database. This facility also easily enables the passenger to retrieve property left or lost in taxis. Although there are taxi apps in existence none of them solve or even target these 3 major issues. Existing taxi apps facilitate the booking and/or payment of a taxi, but one major flaw in most of them is that they rely on the taxi drivers having the app also.

"Amazing Women"in the fingal area ,is an APP specifically targeted at women who want to develop their creativity back into their life . The APP will be used by women at home or working who may have lost the get up and go threw constant struggle with all work and no play.As we all know women are perhaps the most passionate Human Beings with all seven senses who love reading Romantic Novels , Romantic movies ,Dancing, writing, Art,Drama, cooking, knitting Gardening with the financial burdens as we have moved away from enjoying what we are good at . However the APP’s main purpose is to put you on the right track in your local area to learn new skills and develop your creativity further . WHat can I learn, where can I learn to dance , who can teach me. What knitting classes are on in the area, although we see them on the notice board , we are constantly missing the start dates . Just think of all the learning we can do , what other areas can I develop in . Sometimes as a working mum both at home and outside you are so busy you cant get to the local library or chat within the community to find out about what classes are on . The APP is to provide inspiration to women to live life to the full .

An iPhone app that allows library members to check and renew their loans. This will give people greater choice and flexibility in how they interact with Fingal County Libraries. An advantage of an iPhone app over, for example, a SMS text based reminder system, means Fingal Libraries does not have to collect and store email addresses or text numbers in order to push information out to their members.
