    This is a great idea. As an app developer I am all for apps over cumbersome websites for many reasons, and having 80% of thepopulation using a mobile phone or device as their one or main access point, it's no wonder apps are overtaking website builds.
    The abiltiy to engage with subscribers in groups or as a whole is another.
    Imagine a fire is burning out of control in (say) Harvey, WA. Who is going to login to the shire website to check the local area?
    If say (shire of Harvey) had an app, that was useful (book swimming lessons, library hours, pay rates, and the app has the ability to send push notificaitons , one simple push notification is instantly sent from the admin of the app, to hundreds or thousands of people's mobile phones and it "notifies" them instantly of the fire.
    I believe that a good app is far better than a website now that we are all using mobiles.
