Hamilton Island has launched a new iPhone and iPad App, a handy pocket-guide to everything there is to see and do on the island.
Free to download from the Apple Store, the Hamilton Island iPhone App gives guests access to the latest Island information including ‘what’s on’ guides, restaurant and bar opening times, activity schedules, shopping outlets, maps and more.
Headed up by Online Sales and Marketing Manager Bernie O’Keefe, the Online Sales Team initiated and managed the App’s development, in consultation with many other key staff on Hamilton Island.
“We’re excited to have launched an App that we consider to be the most comprehensive destination guide in the marketplace,” O’Keefe said. “Our team spent a considerable amount of time ensuring that the App provides live data for activities, facilities, services and events on the Island, to help our guests discover everything we have to offer.
“The immediate success of the App indicates that travellers are fully embracing the new technology. Just a few days after launch, the Hamilton Island iPhone App began trending on the ‘Free Travel Apps’ list, prompting selection by Apple to make it a ‘Featured App’ on the App Store. This resulted in a flood of downloads, and lots of positive reviews.”
O’Keefe said an Android version of the App is also planned for release in the near future.
