Mountain View Grand Resort Uses TourSphere Mobile App to Serve Guests

27 Jun

Mountain View Grand Hotel’s mobile concierge service from Toursphere

Kudos to Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa who used TourSphere to build an onsite Mobile Concierge. Any question you could ever ask a concierge can be answered right on the hotel’s swanky new app. You can check out daily events, tour the property, peruse menus, book spa and restaurant reservations and more. The mobile concierge app for the Mountain View Grand Hotel is also one of the most aesthetically pleasing to date.

We think The Mountain View Grand is a noteworthy example of how mobile technology can take a guest’s experience and make it infinitely  more memorable.  Give it a whirl and let us know your thoughts.

iSpy a cool new app: International Spy Museum

15 Jun

It’s no secret that the International Spy Museum is one of the most intriguing museums D.C. has to offer. They now offer a mobile app from Toursphere that is enhancing the novelty of the museum exponentially.

The Spy Museum’s app is a perfect example of how an app can make a visitor’s experience more than what they ever expected. It offers all of the typical information for a mobile app, but also a link to the SpyStore, monthly programming for visitors, etc.

There’s even a “Test Your Spy Skills” section offering games that put kids’ (and adults’) sleuthing skills to the ultimate test. What an awesome way to make the most out of a mobile app!

Mount Auburn Cemetery’s Mobile App

13 Jun

Mount Auburn Cemetery easily gets our vote as one of Boston’s most beautiful places. Situated in both Cambridge and Watertown, the Mount Auburn Cemetery breaks the traditional image of a dark and gloomy graveyard by being “America’s first garden cemetery.”  It is a combination of a cemetery and a park, with rolling hills that take away all feelings of being in the city.

Having a mobile tour of the cemetery is almost a no-brainer; not only is it absolutely loaded with history and notable residents, it’s 174 acres and a maze of roads and paths. Try finding the likes of Charles Bullfinch and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow on your own!

The app has everything a visitor will need including directions, histories, multiple tours, even cemetery etiquette! These resources are some that one would never expect to find from a cemetery.

Spring has arrived; take advantage of Mount Auburn Cemetery’s great mobile app and learn things you’d never expect in Boston’s most beautiful cemetery!
