Christina Gateway Community Development Association
The Christina Lake Insider mobile app was launched by Gateway using the 468 Insider platform provided by BCEDA and 468 Communications. The app works from your smartphone using GPS & is a wayfinding tool that offers a reward to users for shopping local.
The app's Explore button opens a map of Christina Lake which has pins, indicating all our community has to offer, outdoor recreation destinations, community services, lodging locations, attractions sites, etc.
Clicking on a pin brings up information or tells a story about that place encouraging a user to visit that location. Locations have points assigned to them & are collected when the user is within GPS range.
Pushing the "Collect Points" button while physically at a location will add the location's points to a user's point total. Points accumulated can then be redeemed for goods or services at local businesses.
