New site and mo­bile app to serve com­mu­nity

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE much-loved My Whit­sun­day/Ro­tary phone book and on­line guides now have a new web­site and smart­phone ap­pli­ca­tion to match.

The web­site my­whit­sun­day.com.au has re­tained all the fea­tures of its pre­de­ces­sor, in­clud­ing weather, events, busi­ness and res­i­den­tial con­tacts and we­b­cams.

Com­ing soon to the site will be news feeds from the Whit­sun­day Times and a se­cure lo­gin area for My Whit­sun­day clients.

Lo­cal deals and op­por­tu­ni­ties to get the com­mu­nity in­volved will be launched be­fore the end of the year.

From this week for­ward, vis­i­tors to Cen­tro Whit­sun­day will find it hard to miss a re­minder of the new look printed guide, web­site and mo­bile app.

A 12-me­tre-long sign fac­ing the main car park en­trance also high­lights the role My Whit­sun­day plays for Ro­tary lo­cally. Lo­cal busi­ness ad­ver­tise­ments placed in the phone guide fund Ro­tary’s an­nual com­mu­nity raf­fle and other lo­cal com­mu­nity as­sis­tance projects.

My Whit­sun­day gen- eral man­ager, Ker­rie Leech, said with the huge growth in mo­bile hits on the My Whit­sun­day web­site, the team at Me­dia Whit­sun­day were “thrilled and priv­i­leged to have played a part in bring­ing the Ro­tary phone book fur­ther into the dig­i­tal age for our com­mu­nity’s ben­e­fit”.

The next edi­tion of the phone guide comes out in Oc­to­ber with book­ing dead­line at the end of July.

For de­tails phone 4946 1594 or email ads@my­whit­sun­day.com.au.

To down­load the mo- bile app, suit­able for any mo­bile op­er­at­ing sys­tem, go to my­whit­sun­day.com.au, where the mo­bile ver­sion will au­to­mat­i­cally dis­play.
