Bringing local communities together!

The Spotted App was created in early 2020, it was designed and developed to help local communities connect with each other in a fair, affordable way.


John Whitbread, the Founder of the Spotted App, has lived his life in numerous places around the world and always found that Facebook had kept him well connected with his family and friends – but what about local businesses? Well, to trial this John posted about the need for a Dog Groomer in a local ‘Spotted’ Facebook page, but found the process of people commenting and researching those businesses to be time consuming… and so HURRAH – a lightbulb moment – what if there was an app to connect you to local businesses quickly?

Thus, The Spotted App was born!

What does our app represent?

We have many core values surrounding this app, but we are most passionate about being fair. We genuinely care about our community and the people in it, and it’s all too often that the ones who need the most help are unable to get it – which is why we wanted to give local businesses an equal opportunity to promote their business through the app. We are also helping the consumer to make their own choice about the suppliers they use, and as we list the closest businesses as the top choices, we are naturally encouraging them to source locally.

Just used this app for the first time...heater's packed up on my car. Messaged a mobile auto guy who got straight back to me. Also put it up on a job list to quote for. So simple to use

Great app and had a few jobs from here.
I also used it myself with a 100% response rate better than anywhere else.
