A new Brexit iPhone app has been released, designed specifically to keep the business community informed of all latest developments in government policy. The so-called ?Brexit News? app, developed and released by the Locke Lord law firm, will deliver expert analysis and insight into each aspect of Britain?s exit from the European Union, offering users the opportunity to receive regular updates on government progress. The app is released in conjunction with the firm?s recently launched Brexit blog that provides readers with access to a full database of posts, covering the wide range of legal implications that the referendum has had ? and will have ? on businesses. Users will be able to activate push notifications on their devices for each time a new story or development is posted by legal experts. Commenting on the launch of the app, Alan Meneghetti, a partner at Locke Lord and co-editor of its Brexit blog, said that the app would keep users up to speed with each phase of progress in the face of uncertainty for the business community. ?We are still awaiting the full implications of Brexit. Our team is eager to stay at the forefront of these developments to help clients understand the possible impact it could have on their businesses,? he said. Adding further comment, co-editor of the Brexit blog Rebecca Watkins highlighted the potential benefits of the app in bringing news immediately to users. She said: ?Our blog and iPhone app are great avenues to immediately deliver news and information to our clients and the legal community.? Although the small business community appears largely unshaken by Brexit so far ? just four per cent of business owners surveyed by the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) recently said that they expected to decrease the size of their workforce ? uncertainty still surrounds the implications of triggering Article 50. The latest Business in Britain report from Lloyds Bank showed that increased political and economic uncertainty following the result of the EU referendum had left business confidence of small firms at a four-year low. Business owners will be paying close attention to the chancellor?s Autumn Statement in November, where the government is likely to offer further clarification on the impact of Brexit on businesses in the UK.
