hotel.info launches iPhone App: The quick and easy way to book hotels on the move!
London, 27. June 2011 – hotel.info is a leading online hotel reservation service with more than 210,000 hotels worldwide and the iPhone App can now be downloaded from the App Store. This means that you can quickly and easily make hotel reservations using your iPhone.
The main focus was on usability when creating the hotel.info iPhone App. A well designed application that incorporates the most important features to ensure fast and fuss-free hotel bookings for both frequent travellers and casual holiday makers. The hotel.info iPhone App offers a fresh and modern interface that clearly displays the essential information required to quickly choose the most suitable hotel.
Warini Munshi, Managing Director at hotel.info, stated that the design of the new iPhone App reflects "survey results from our most frequent bookers on their requirements for making hotel bookings using current mobile phone technology, which clearly demonstrated that extensive and often tedious features are not required when using the iPhone. It is far more important that bookings can be made quickly and easily. Therefore we have simplified the hotel search and booking process as much as possible."
The hotel selection is clearly displayed. Hotel list, map view and area overview are cleanly integrated. A favourites folder is available for storing hotels of interest and a booking summary allows you to review your previous bookings. A hotel booking can be made in just three steps. Hotel photos, customer reviews and ratings, and the handy LiveView function are all included. Essential for simple everyday use, Warini Munshi points out that: "Customers who require a hotel on the spot in their current location will find the LiveView feature extremely useful. It displays hotels in the immediate vicinity alongside their distance from the user's current location and the bookable room rates."
