The UK’s leading corporate app developer, Mubaloo, has worked with The Carphone Warehouse to develop the ultimate in store finders.

With over 800 locations, The Carphone Warehouse needed to ensure their stores are easy to find amongst all the high street competition. Mubaloo were quick to respond with an app that uses Augmented Reality and Google maps to locate the stores and their distance from the user.

The app also provides full details for each store within the area, up to fifty miles away, and directions to guide the user to the store. In the rapidly developing smartphone market, customers can now easily locate Carphone Warehouse stores for accessories, repairs, changes to contract and upgrades.

Mark Mason, CEO of Mubaloo commented that; “The development of this app shows that even high street stores are adopting a mobile strategy, a trend that is increasing as more retailers and businesses realise the potential of mobile as an acquisition and communication tool.”

The free iPhone app is available from the ITunes Store.
