Just as the 2010 Olympic Games kick off, ChicWalks Vancouver Shopping app is going for gold and being downloaded by the thousands after being featured by Apple on the home page of the iTunes app store in the Canadian, US, Brazilian and Mexican stores. The app is currently in the Top 10 Apps in the Lifestyle section.
“It means the world to us that we are being recognized for our app on the iTunes store, at the same level alongside notable organizations such as CTV, Cowbell 2010, Starbucks, Martha Stewart and eBay Mobile.”
Since being accepted on the iTunes store on Dec. 17, 2009, the app has been receiving a steady stream of fans with iPhone and iPod Touch users who are locals, visitors or frequent travelers to Vancouver. Their key motivation for downloading the app is to find the local gems and deals in Vancouver for shopping, and also eating and drinking places that can be found along the way.
After receiving a sexy wink from Ms Chic upon opening the application, users are reporting they are delighted to find that the app is loaded with features including fantastic savings and exclusive offers in the form of digital coupons, street-by-street listings and descriptions of over 1,000 shops, and in-app GPS-mapping. For Olympics visitors, all of the fashion, eating and drinking places in Whistler are documented for easy reference.
ChicWalks is further bringing the shopping community together by introducing special co-branded shopping events in conjunction with the merchants on its walks. ChicWalks is using the dynamic MeetUp platform as a means for people to connect and share with other like-minded locals and travelers, who are interested in all things fashion and shopping.
