WEST ESSEX AREA, NJ – A new mobile app has been launched by Robert and Sandra Bolcar called “Everything Caldwell” and is now available to download for free on the Google play store for Android devices and will soon be available to iPhone users through the Apple store.
The app, which the Bolcar’s designed with the help of a company called Six Ticks, is designed to give residents access to information about various services in the Caldwells, including shopping and restaurant locations with coupons, information on where to park, a car finder feature and news, events and real estate listings.
“When you come in to town you can find stores with coupons. You can find restaurants in fine dining or take out. You can find local parking lots,” Sandra Bolcar said.
The app was announced by the Bolcar’s at the Caldwell Street Fair on Oct. 2 and is now fully functioning and will provide a variety of services to users.
Nearly every business in town is listed on the app and can be found easily by simply selecting the category of business that the user wants to find.
For example, if looking for somewhere to grab a bite to eat, one can simply select dining, then filter through eat in, take out and fine dining options and find the restaurant they want to go to on the interactive map.
The app also lists several historical sites in the Caldwells, including the West Caldwell Historical Society, Grover Cleveland Park and the birthplace of Grover Cleveland.
In addition to showing where residents and visitors can park, filtered through free, metered and three hour limit parking, the app also features a car find feature.
“It has a car find feature on it so that if you put money into the meter and you are only allowed one or two hours, it will give you an alarm ten minutes ahead before the meter runs out.” Sandra Bolcar said. “It also is a pinpoint on where your car is located so you can actually go find your car.”
Sandra and Robert Bolcar have been relators in the Caldwells for the past 36 years and have developed into fixtures in the community. They are creators of the Facebook group, “I love living in the Caldwells,” which has over 900 members.
The “Everything Caldwell,” app will provide the community with a mobile platform to keep up with everything Caldwell, from shopping and dining, to real estate listings, news and even where to park.
