A small Irish start up based in IT Sligo has signed a contract with the largest single site university in the UK to develop a wellbeing mobile app.

Storybundles is to develop the app for the University of Manchester which has 40,000 students and 10,000 staff.

The app will detail wellbeing events and activities on the University campus as well as around the local area alongside real time information about what is happening close by.
