BnBFinder Launches First Mobile B&B Directory to Feature Location Based Search


Top-rated bed and breakfast directory launches mobile version of website. BnBFinder-Mobile lists thousands of B&Bs/Inns/Boutique Hotels, and is fast, lightweight and loads quickly on any smartphone.

New York, NY, April 28, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Like so many tasks nowadays, vacation planning has gone mobile. With the newly launched BnBFinder-Mobile, bed and breakfast information can now be searched quickly and efficiently from any smartphone (iPhone, Android, Blackberry, etc.). This is the first bed and breakfast directory to offer location based searches (LBS).

“People expect information in the palm of their hand and we’ve always tried to make that possible,” said Mary White Founder and CEO of BnBFinder.com, a top ranked bed and breakfast online directory. “Eleven years ago we were the first to make B&B information mobile when we partnered with AvantGo on an application for Palm Pilots; today we are the first bed and breakfast directory to offer a mobile site with LBS.”

Gone is the notion that staying at a B&B is like staying at Grandma's house and BnBFinder-Mobile uses the ubiquitous smartphone to allow guests to search for all the bed and breakfast information they need in a way that is faster and more convenient. The site includes features never before seen on a bed and breakfast directory.

BnBFinder-Mobile is optimized to automatically work with smartphone features, no download necessary. LBS allows iPhone and Android users can take advantage of the GPS on their phones to determine the exact location of bed and breakfasts nearest to them. Simply click "Find an Inn Near Me" to see a list of bed and breakfasts starting with the closest one. Guests can take advantage of common smartphone features like "tap to call,” Google Maps, and e-mail integration. Just like BnBFinder.com, BnBFinder-Mobile lists thousands of bed and breakfasts, inns, and boutique hotels around the world. The site automatically detects that a user is visiting via smartphone and presents the mobile version. IPhone users can add the website to their homescreen, where it appears and runs likes a native application.

Using the expertise of creators, Mobile Meteor (www.mobilemeteor.com), BnBFinder-Mobile is fast, lightweight and loads quickly.
