OUR NEIGHBOURHOODS APPS
Animated Media is located in the Queen West Neighbourhood of Toronto. We found that many of today's online services for finding local information and events were broken, inefficient or not "local" enough. It was even worse on Mobile. We decided to take on this challenge and began developing the "Neighbourhoods Apps" starting with our own 'hood! After the Queen West App success, we partnered with the West Queen West BIA to launch the West Queen West App and most recently launched the Kensington Market App.
We love our neighborhoods ... whether its because of the architecture, shopping, bars & restaurants, the culture or the people. We love to #ShopLocal, #EatLocal, #DrinkLocal to support the small & medium sized businesses that give Toronto such diversity. Users can view the home screen "slideshow of ads" any time of day and see what events and special offers are taking place in their neighbourhood. No hunting for websites, no endless online reviews ... just simple messages that locals want to see.
Get The Queen West App
The Queen West App was the first in a series of our Neighbourhoods Apps that offered "hyperlocal" events, information & advertising. Geared towards locals, residents and tourists, the Apps gather relevant events and special offers from local businesses and groups into a central easy-to-use app. Ads are displayed in a slideshow to remind people of our vibrant community, businesses and activities.
