Bermuda.com Local Search has been chosen as the “App of the Month” by Digicel for March.

Since November, Digicel picks an App it feels users will find very useful. The Bermuda.com Local Search is the first Bermuda app to be highlighted.

Bermuda.com is a sister company to the Bermuda Sun in the MediaHouse Group of companies.

Glenn Jones, acting general manager of MediaHouse, said: “We’re thrilled to get this acknowledgement from Digicel because those guys know their stuff; they’re not easily impressed.

“Overall the feedback has been great. For example, the user reviews at the App Store are outstanding.  We already have thousands of users, we just hope the good buzz leads to thousands more downloading the app and discovering for themselves how practical and Bermuda customized it is.

“Also we’re constantly looking to make our Local Search App even better. So if anyone comes across outdated information we want them to e-mail us so we can correct it (dataupdates@bermuda.com).

“This is not like a printed directory, mistakes can be fixed in a matter of minutes and then pushed out electronically to everyone’s smartphone.  We’ve made local search simple, but also very powerful, very efficient.”

Digicel said on its website in choosing Local Search as the App of the Month: “Whether you’re hungry, thirsty or just want to go shopping, the new bermuda.com mobile app will point you in the right direction.

 “It’s called Bermuda.com Local Search and is designed to find any local business in Bermuda, even while you’re on the go. Search hands-free by using your voice or search by text. Sort your results alphabetically, by relevance, or distance – our app will find the option closest to you.

 “Bermuda.com Local Search also has zoom and scroll maps to help users navigate where to go once they have found what they’re looking for. The bermuda.com mobile app is search made simple.”
