Bahamas operator BTC has announced plans to launch its own Snapchat-style app called BTC Starmaker. The app, described as the first of its kind in the local market, features Bahamian themed filters such as police hats, conch shells and Junkanoo head pieces. Other features include the possibility to play and lip sync Bahamian music. The mobile app will be available to both Android and iOS users free of charge, said BTC, adding that the app's creator Stephen Brown has also helped to develop the "BTC Rush" game now available in the operator's stores.
