As smartphone (and Ice Cream) enthusiasts in the office, we were all very excited when we got asked to create an app for The Ice Cream Alliance.
The Ice Cream Alliance is an organisation which encourages and supports the production, vending and consumption of great ice cream and frozen desserts. They have a huge bank of members around the country and their aim with the ICA app was to help people find their nearest ‘ICA approved’ ice cream parlour.
The apps main function is a location service which pinpoints where you are and will list the ICA parlours in order of nearest to furthest. If you click on a parlour’s profile you can also find out more information, contact the parlour, visit their website and there is also a Google map that gives you an exact location.
As well as this, the app has several other great features. Our favourite area is the ‘fun and games’ page which links you to download ICA approved game ‘scoops’. We’ve all spent a considerable amount of time “researching” the game in the office, not trying to beat each others high scores at all! There are also buttons to connect you to the ICA’s twitter and facebook pages.
The app has been produced for the iOS and Android market and if successful in it’s launch may even be produced for other devices! We’re very proud of this app, as it’s our biggest one to date! The app is absolutely free, so give it a go and let us know what you think!
