Memphremagog Tourism website now ‘mobile’
Since Monday, people with smartphones have been able to access a mobile version of the Memphremagog Tourism’s website:
www.tourisme-memphremagog.com. Tourists and day trippers can now easily access the most useful categories from the website such as those for lodging, restaurants, attractions and activities, and events, on either an iphone, an itouch, Blackberry (version 6 +), and Android (2.0 +).
When smartphone users type Memphremagog Tourism’s website on their device, automatically the mobile version will pop up instead of the standard web version. The organisation of the information is different on the mobile version of the site to respond to the needs of the modern, smartphone equipped tourist and features options such as the ability to call a displayed phone number without dialing.
“In collaboration with our Axial Developpement agency, we will add more functions within the next few weeks: packages, coupons and suggestions,” commented Nathalie Provencher, director of tourism.
Finally, according to a study published last August by the CRTC, the number of smartphone users in Canada is expected to climb from 5.5 million in 2011 to 14 million by 2015.
