Dynamic thumbnails like those available on emagazine cannot be created for mobile technology at this time However, e-books include a table of contents function which can be displayed through the menu of the e-book reader application (circled in red) An e-book is a file which is downloaded. Therefore, it can be read off-line (better adapted for mobile). The e-magazine is read on-line and requires a strong bandwidth signal

Your mobile directory

The table of contents displays all the chapters. The user simply taps on the chapter name to access it (for example: Services) To reduce download time, images should be limited in size and quantity The directory file remains in the device’s memory. Therefore, it can be read outside the hotel.

This way, the hotel can provide the directory even before the guest’s arrival
