4 mai 2012 ─ Getting around Montréal has been made even more pleasant with the new Tourisme Montréal mobile site, a handy tool allowing visitors to explore the city in an easy and dynamic manner. The site is filled with useful features, all at the swipe of a finger, for both tourists and citizens alike. A calendar view, for example, shows must-see events of the day, while a complete listing of restaurants, hotels, attractions, and activities keeps users informed of all of the wonderful options available to them in the city.
Conference delegates who want to discover Montréal on their own time can chart customized tours by using a geolocation function that enables them to navigate through Montréal’s diversity of neighbourhoods and discover nearby attractions, no matter where they are in the city.
The site also provides convenient location-based itineraries and access to special offers from numerous Montréal shops and services. Users can even instantly share content on social networks like Facebook to keep friends and family in the loop!
The mobile site was designed specifically for smartphone screens to address the changing methods of communication in the tourism industry. It is optimized for iPhones as well as for Android platforms that support one of two resolutions: 480 x 800 (corresponding to most Nexus models) or 480 x 854.
With its plethora of advantageous planning and orientation tools, Tourisme Montréal’s mobile site makes visiting the city as smooth as maple syrup!
