The Pearl-Qatar has officially launched a mobile application allowing smartphone users to access a variety of exclusive digital services.

The application acts as a personal shopping assistant and visit planning gateway for The Pearl-Qatar, enabling users to locate and find stores and buildings, to ascertain opening hours, directions and contact information as well as to navigate the Island while they are there.

Stores, restaurants and cafes are listed by category as well as alphabetically with real time updates on special retail deals, offers and the possibility to make restaurant reservations through the incorporated mobile reservation tool.

Additional features include a listing of The Pearl-Qatar’s calendar of events, activities and entertainment venues, and an interactive map showing all locations with the option of seeking directions and live guidance from one point to another. Location services are either displayed on an easy to read 3D interactive map or through the new technique of “augmented reality” which allows users to identify labels for all restaurants, outlets, and entertainment locations at The Pearl-Qatar in real-time by holding up their smartphone’s built-in camera.

Ebrahim Al-Sulaiti, Chief Executive Officer of United Development Company, said:

The development of a one-stop-shop mobile application fulfills UDC’s vision for The Pearl-Qatar, being a smart Island in all aspects of its infrastructure and services.’

The application titled ‘The Pearl Qatar’ can be downloaded on App Store and Google Play, for smartphones using the Android or iOS mobile operating systems.
