Launch of Mobile version of website to help Celiacs find GF-friendly places to eat

Wow look at this:

The Gluten Free Travel site has just launched a free mobile version of their website, GlutenFreeTravelSite 
( http://www.glutenfreetravelsite.com ). This site helps people with Celiac and others following gluten-free diets to find safe places to eat, either in their area or in places they travel.  Unlike many "apps" that cost money and need to be downloaded, the mobile version of GlutenFreeTravelSite is absolutely FREE to use and automatically accessible via any smart phone -- be it an iPhone, Blackberry, or Android-based phone.

Visitors accessing the site "on the go" via a smart phone will now have a more user-friendly experience finding "gluten-free friendly" restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, and hotels/resorts wherever they are. Similar to the experience on GlutenFreeTravelSite, users will be able to search the huge database of gluten-free dining and travel reviews by entering a city/town or zip code. The search results appear on a a Google map, and clicking on any establishment on the list will enable users to link to the review.

Other key features of the mobile version include GlutenFreeTravelSite's Gluten Free Restaurant Menus section which lists national and regional restaurant chains that offer gluten-free menus -- and provides direct links to those menus as well as the restaurants' locations. Users of the mobile version will even be able to visit the site's Blog, Facebook and Twitter pages, and read the Featured Review of the Month.

To access the mobile version, you simply enter the regular URL for GlutenFreeTravelSite ( http://www.glutenfreetravelsite.com ) into your mobile phone’s browser, and you’ll automatically be routed to the mobile version of the site. More details can be found in our Press Release.


Thank you for taking an interest in the gluten free community and thanks for stopping by ya'll!
