Good Halal Food project

Listening and talking to my Muslim friends about places serving Halal food in Coventry gave me a great idea to start a small project - Good Halal Food, to list down all the places serving Halal food in Coventry along with reviews. I started it off in the end of May this year and the list has now grown to 15 places all over UK. I hope to include restaurants and other food outlets in other countries in Europe and the US as well.

As I mentioned in my last post "Create your own Ovi app for Free", I created the Good Halal Food Ovi app which is available for download (for FREE) to Nokia phone users on the Nokia Ovi store.

This is an ongoing project and it was more of a free information service for my friends and family members. That's why I was so amazed when I found out that in the last month, the app has been downloaded 980 times. This made me realise that there is a huge gap in the market that has not been fulfilled and I am definitely going to dedicate more time to the project.

I have plans to create similar apps for the iPhone and Android phones but at the moment I am too busy with my PhD thesis writing to work on these.

You can help me by emailing me your own reviews of places serving halal food (preferably along with their address). Feel free to leave your comments and suggestions.
