Owners of real estate in Adelaide might be about to find their city more accessible following the introduction of the My Local Services smart phone application.
The My Local Services app aims to assist in connecting local communities by delivering relevant information about local services directly to their smart phones.
Adelaide City Council is one of many South Australian councils participating in the roll out of this new service. Collectively, the councils decided on five key features to include in the app that would benefit those living in each locality.
The app’s main feature is to spotlight any important community notices or events. This includes information about road closures, council meetings and exciting happenings in the local community.
Council facilities such as parks, playgrounds and libraries are listed in the application and a built in GPS service is provided to direct users to each one.
If remembering to put your rubbish out at your property in Adelaide is an issue, the app includes a kerbside collection service reminder. This feature keeps you up-to-date with which bin to put out when and sends you push notifications on the requisite days.
Finally, there is a reporting service to keep you connected with your city council. Any issues that require council attention can be reported at the press of button.
The app will be available to purchase on February 27 from the Apple App and Google Play stores.
