If one is frequent traveller and of course possesses a mobile, the name Mobilewish perhaps signifies what every mobile user wishes from the gadget. The easily downlodable application PTA or Personal Travel Assistant could be his/her guide in an unknown place. The PTA encompasses all the information any traveler can need while traveling e.g. routes, bank ATMs, hotels, restaurants, up to date local news, and transportation details. This application is unique in its concept, as it provides a mobile mash-up of all non-mobile data sources to make it available on mobile that are useful for any traveler to get real time data about any specific locations round the globe. The idea was to provide the traveller one stop solution in all his travel needs. The application usage can be helpful in improving tourism and travel sector.
Travellers in the 21st century are also more sophisticated in their information seeking and research habits, and are no longer content with referring to static print guides about their destinations. PocketWish combines the best of both these trends with its broadbased travel information access on mobile devices. As a mobile mash-up for the global traveller, the scope of PocketWish extends across Asia and beyond. Technically, the application uses content feeds, APIs and custom crawlers, with varying degrees of granularity and presentation. With further improvements in comparison services and interface design for multiple devices, PocketWish will be able to deliver the best of the mobile Web for today's busy traveller.
