“HelloTel” was featured on NewsWatch as part of its monthly AppWatch, which features the latest and coolest mobile applications on the iOS, Android, and Windows markets. Andrew Tropeano, a mobile technology expert and host of NewsWatch, conducted the app review and shared with viewers how it turns a hotel check-in into a chance to network and meet other travelers.
According to the US Travel Association, nearly 2.1 billion person-trips were taken by Americans in 2013. Those travelers spent over $163 billion in hotel rooms. Anyone who has an upcoming trip that sends them to a hotel, check out a cool new social network that just hit the iOS and Android appstores called HelloTel.
With HelloTel, travelers can turn their hotel check-in into a chance to network and meet other travelers. So how does it work? Travelers sign in with Facebook – which is important because it ensures travelers meet real people – then after they create their profile, they check into the hotel and identify if they’re there for business or leisure. Travelers can then post on the news feed, give kudos – which is their version of a “like” – or comment on other posts, and start connecting with fellow travelers. For networking purposes, users can see who is staying at their hotel for business or leisure and even check out their profile to see if there is a business opportunity or shared interest.
There are a ton of other interesting features in the app. So to join and meet people on the road, head to the appstore and search HelloTel or visit http://www.HelloTelApp.com today.
