In our neverending quest to help local residents connect more easily with local merchants, we're launching a new mobile app called Reacht.
Click here for the iOS version.
Click here for the Android version.
Reacht is a fun, interactive way for people to share their opinions on a variety of topics, from politics to baseball, world events to music, hot-button controversies to the amusing topics of society. Participants will also receive unique and special offers from local merchants -- and some national merchants -- tailored to their interests.
We promise you won't get bombarded with a string of daily notifications, but the app uses your smartphone's notification service to ask you poll questions and send you offers.
We will use this app in conjunction with our current daily poll, but we'll also fashion special, mobile-only polls.
There will also be prizes you can win for participating.
The app is free.
Our kick-off next week is being sponsored by Southside Deli. Those who download the app and respond to the second poll question of the day on the app will be eligible to win a $5 gift certificate (we'll give away at least 80 of them over the first two weeks) to Southside Deli.
We're working on obtaining other prizes. (Local businesses, want to participate? Contact me or Lisa Ace at (585) 250-4118.)
