Animated Media Launches the Queen West Mobile App

Today Animated Media launched the Queen West App, the first of a series of "Neighbourhood Apps" that will offer hyper-local information, events, special offers & advertising to and for local residents, workers and students. AMI's goal is to offer businesses of all sizes a cost effective, real-time mobile advertising platform, supporting both image and text-based ads, that enables them to attract and reward local customers and build loyalty.

QWApp LogoThe Queen West Neighbourhood (plus Entertainment & Fashion Districts) in Toronto is one of the most vibrant areas in the world. Known for its eclectic mix of old and new, large and small businesses, restaurants, bars, music venues and more, you can always find something interesting to do, see, eat or shop. The App also helps answer the question "What do we want to do for fun today?" and offers ideas for a night out, where to go for lunch, and showcases events happening in the area.

We plan to work with some of the 81 Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) within the City and the Toronto Association of BIAs (TABIA) as an umbrella group that represents over 40,000 businesses. The BIAs are of many different sizes and budgets and work in various ways to improve commerce and attract residents and visitors to stay in the Neighbourhood and #ShopLocal.

Currently the App is available for Android devices.  Support for Apple iOS devices will be launched in the Spring 2016.  To find our more and download the App, go to
