My Destination releases free Mobile Platform

Today online travel resource, My Destination, launched its mobile platform. This brings the site’s unique travel advice, local deals and insider tips straight from its global network of travel experts directly to people’s mobile devices.

The free platform will give visitors to a destination access to whatever they are searching for, at the touch of a button. Be it a romantic restaurant or a guide to local festivities, ideas for activities or even the latest weather forecast. This wealth of information is automatically customized to the users location thanks to an innovative ‘near me now’ tool. For example, a visitor In Vale do Lobo can find out what events are coming up in the area, what restaurants or bars have Special Offers on or what hotels are nearby.

"People don’t just need expert travel advice to plan a trip; they also need it when they get there.  Our free mobile platform promises to give the most up-to-date information and offers - all personalized to the exact location you are travelling to!" said Neil Waller, co-founder of My Destination. "This is fantastic technology  - it gives visitors the information they need and gives business owners a very direct way of reaching these visitors".

The mobile platform is breaking new ground, having been developed using HTML5 and the very latest touch optimized framework for smartphones and tablets. This means the application is now available to the widest range of devices without needing to be downloaded from an App Store. In addition, to increase the customer reach further, the same mobile app will also be available in the next few weeks as a native iPhone\iPad\Android app that can be downloaded from the different App stores directly.

To access the platform, simply go to www.mydestination.com on your smartphone/tablet device. For further information please contact algarve.info@mydestination.com or call 963 453 797.
