“While one or two other publishers have mobile apps, we believe is the only series of travel guides freely available in a truly mobile format.

“Like many others, we experimented with mobile apps, but have come to the conclusion that a mobile websites offer many benefits,” he added.

“In particular they are easier to update and manage and we can easily over-brand them for our corporate clients. Despite having only launched the site on Monday, we have already seen a noticeable uplift in mobile traffic.”
