STV launches new city-based apps for quartet of Scots cities

SCOTS cities, Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow have new apps dedicated to local news and information, launched by STV.

The apps – free for both iOS and Android devices and, of course, available in website form too – succeed the broadcaster’s network of locally-based websites, STV Local, as announced in July. They are being described by STV as marking “the next generation of STV’s digital services”.

In a STV media release, David Milne, head of digital publishing, is quoted, as saying: “The new city services further strengthen STV’s portfolio of digital offerings for online consumers. We have developed a fun, engaging and relevant platform to help people in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Dundee get the most out of their city, covering everything from breaking news and top events to daily deals and reviews.

“The concept behind these new services is ‘your city in your hand’ and we hope the apps will inspire with great ideas for going out, eating and exploring Scotland’s four biggest cities, with information and offers always kept up to date by STV’s team of dedicated journalists.”
