The myRM Smartphone App is now available for iPhone and Android users!!
(Regina) Weather Innovations Consulting LP (WIN) is pleased to announce the launch of the myRM smartphone application to provides rural residents across Saskatchewan with instant contact to their municipal government office as well as local weather conditions, weather warnings, highway conditions, emergency information, local RM maps and regional news.
The app is the first of its kind in Canada and already includes information for over 100 myRM rural municipalities in Saskatchewan.
The myrm.info online network (http://myrm.info) was launched in 2012 to provide rural municipalities with easy-to-administer municipal websites with real-time local weather, detailed local forecasts, municipal news, agricultural events and more. Since its launch, the myRM network has grown to over 85 municipal websites attracting thousands of visitors every month.
“The myRM app already provides 97 of Saskatchewan’s Rural Municipalities and their residents with their own smartphone application, “ said Aj Thakker, WeatherInnovation’s director of community initiatives. “These rural residents will now have the ability to instantly communicate with their local Municipal Government offices, regardless of whether they are at home, in town or somewhere in between.”
The myRM app is available free to iPhone phone users on the App Store and to Android phone users on Google Play
