Clackamas, OR, United States, 2008/09/24 - TimeStream Software's New Notescast for iPod extends the content of a travel destination's website beyond the PC and into customers' mobile lives, where they can access that content on their iPods right in the palm of their hand wherever they go.
iPod users can now add "Interactive Mobile Marketing Device" to the capabilities of the popular music and video player. TimeStream Software announces the first use worldwide of the iPod (Classic, Video & Nano) as a mobile marketing tool in the ground-breaking release of the new 81 page Sheraton Maui Resort Notescast®.
Developed as a mobile yet comprehensive vacation planning and on-island resource, the new Sheraton Maui Notescast installs to the iPod Notes feature found on nearly every iPod sold today and allows guests to scroll through 81 pages of interactive copy and information, all linked to related photos and presented with corporate branding. Categories include Room Descriptions and Rates, Room Photos and Maps, Dining & Entertainment, Meeting Facilities, Romance & Weddings, Planning Your Visit, Special Offers, Activities & Calendar, Golfing and much more.
"It's an all new way to use your iPod." said Mike Westby of TimeStream Software. "Imagine enjoying the sun on Ka'anapali Beach, well out of range of a cell phone signal or Internet access, and immediately calling up a wealth of interactive information, complete with photos, on your iPod to plan your next day's schedule or perhaps review restaurants for that evening's dinner."
By extending a web site's content beyond the PC and out into guests' mobile lives, Notescasting allows guests to download the same vacation planning and Maui activities content found on the Sheraton Maui Resort web site to their iPod Classics, Videos and Nanos to immediately access in the palm of their hands wherever they go and whenever they want, even if they're out of range of a cell phone signal or Internet access.
As an innovative new mobile marketing, brand interaction and reservation tool, it gives the Sheraton Maui Resort access to an all new customer channel involving an estimated over 100 million iPod users.
The new Sheraton Maui Notescast may be downloaded to your iPod free of charge from the Sheraton Maui website.
