“Our new mobile phone application is a convenient, simple and basic solution to support the needs of travelers on the go who don’t have access to a computer,” said getaroom.com President and co-founder Bob Diener. “We wanted to provide a service to a broad range of mobile phone users. We kept the application simple so it can be supported by most mobile phone devises,” continued Diener.
