Halal Application on iPhone

In the attempt to help consumers in locating halal food premises or restaurants, HDC is introducing its inaugural Halal application on iPhone platform. This will be considered the World’s First Government Halal Certified premise locator. “Locator” is the first module that was developed to assist users to accurately locate halal food premises using the Global Positioning System (GPS) technology and Google Maps.

Users will have the opportunity to locate the halal food premises and restaurants certified by JAKIM within 15km radius from the current location. This application is also equipped with performance monitoring system where users could give rating on the cleanliness of the food premises or restaurants. For the second and third modules, users could obtain immediate mobile access on the halal directory, halal industry news and knowledge, which will be fully completed by the end of 2010.
Users can browse and download this application via the App Store service for not limited to iPhone, but also iPod Touch and iPad. This application will be made available to the public by third week of March 2010. No cost will be charged for this downloading except for charges by internet service providers (ISP).
