InnTouch for iPhone gives travelers accurate information updated 24/7 by inn owners and the iLoveInns.com staff, as well as up to 10 photos per inn. "IPhone shifts the paradigm of how we communicate and how we interact with the Web. InnTouch is a mechanism to give privately owned inns and bed and breakfasts a presence with a wide variety of users," said David Sakach, head of iLoveInns.com's product development. “We are proud to bring the very best small inns and boutique hotels to mobile customers and look forward to offering travelers, both leisure and business, the surprise of discovering America’s finest hospitality."
Chris Monahan, chief technology officer at iLoveInns.com, was the lead designer of the application. “You can search for inns by city or see what's around you using the Nearby feature. This pulls your GPS coordinates and shows you nearby inns within 60 miles. With the phone being an all-in-one device, a person can call the inn for reservations with one touch; not dialing each digit of the phone number. They can see the inn's address on a map, get directions, save the address in their contact list, as well as e-mail or visit the inn's Web site with single-click actions. We have a huge list of features that we plan to implement, including adding international inns,” he added.
InnTouch will become a vital necessity for frequent business travelers and inn enthusiasts who realize they can have both delightful adventures and great comfort while traveling. It makes it easy to find the inn or bed and breakfast that meets their needs and exceeds their expectations.
