[prMac.com] Toronto, Canada - Looking through the app store for a useful app to a destination can be daunting. With a slew of apps touting to be the most definitive and comprehensive it can be a real pain to download an app and see that it has very minimal information and lots of generic pictures. Conch Pearl Media Inc, the developers of the SpotCayman app for the Cayman Islands, guarantees you that this won't happen when you download their app. With over 300 MB of information, every user is going to have all of the information they need with just a few taps.
SpotCayman has over 200 restaurants to choose from, over 55 wifi hotspots, all hotels in Cayman, shopping, island attractions, tours, doctors, banks, churches, car rental agencies, grocery stores, gas, liquor stores and the list goes on. They are full of information for your stay in the Cayman Islands. Further, they have a search tool in their app that works like the most popular search engines on the internet.
Lisa Butcher, President of Conch Pearl Media Inc. says, "With thousands of spots in our app, far surpassing our competition, this allows a user easy accessibility to all of them. We have an advanced search capability that allows you to search by district, name, phone number, address or even keywords. This is where the power really is in SpotCayman. Search anything from vegetarian, gluten free, budget restaurant, water view restaurant, seafood, webcam, news, breakfast, banks, events, dive sites, gyms, the list is endless and our search engine provides you with all of the results you need. No other app for the Cayman Islands incorporates keywords like SpotCayman."
Additionally, SpotCayman is the only app for the Cayman Islands who has implemented exclusive technology that allows it to update with new spots and exclusive content daily. Conch Pearl Media can add a place or make a change in less than 5 minutes, without submitting to the app store.
SpotCayman maps have street detail! They are the ONLY app for the Cayman Islands with this feature. Users can map one spot or map hundreds at the same time on Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac or Little Cayman. Users can also view a location and see their location with GPS tracking capability. All maps are available both online and offline and all are zoomable. When they say they upgraded for iOS 6 - they really did!
Lisa noted that one of the main features of mobile app development is to make sure the user can utilize all of the features on their iOS device. "If a user has their location settings on, they want to be able to see where they are and where they are going! If the maps don't have street names and details, the app is going to be useless to the user. It is important to note that apps are not website regurgitation - they are the new revolution of information and functionality."
The SpotCayman app is not affiliated with any organizations, nor do they provide bias commentary or reviews in the app about any business. They do not have a vested interest in any business in Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac or Little Cayman. All businesses have been put into the app for free and are randomly listed, each time, without any favouritism to maximize discoverability.
