Dominicans create events mobile app

Two young Dominicans are aiming to innovate the event advertising industry and create an opportunity for others. They have created a mobile app, Linkup_, which promises to centralize event information for the masses and give event promoters a new way of getting their events out there.

H. Irus Toussaint and Daniel L.Pond have been developing the app since last year, using the latest technology available, getting information and trying to make something of value for Dominicans.

“We made the app because it was difficult figuring out what was going on in Dominica,” they said. ” You’re always hearing that nothing is happening in Dominica but the day after you hear an event has past and it was so good or it’s sold out when you hear about it”.

Recently, the app was submitted to World Summit Youth Award 2016, an award initiated in 2003 in the framework of the UN World Summit on the Information Society (UN WSIS). Participation in contests like this will allow Dominican talent to be showcased to the world.

Another resource which they have been able to access is the PitchIT Caribbean Challenge 2016 through The National Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (NTRC) with business/mobile technology training at the Dominica State College. The challenge will bring together app developers from across the Caribbean and Linkup_ will be carrying the Dominica Flag.

The mobile app is available in the Google Play Store, the Windows App Store, and the Apple App Store. The app features push notifications, easy navigation, and tells clients which event has the most people.

By having the app on a phone, all posts submitted through the website, www.linkmeup.co/myevents, will be seen. Links for the app can be found on the website www.linkmeup.co or on its Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Linkup_-793588197451664/?ref=br_rs). For more information, contact: administrator@linkmeup.co

    I looked up the app in excitement. I noticed it cost $0.99. I think it might have been better if it was sponsored and the app was free.

    Just my opinion

    Yes! Proud of these guys. May I suggest a section/filter for Christian events such as concerts as well and this can truly impact all Dominicans.
