Free Apps Bring Folly Beach Fans One Step Closer(February 29, 2012)
Folly Beach, SC (PRWEB) February 29, 2012
Before the internet, and FollyBeach.com of course, anyone looking to get away had to visit local travel agents in order to plan even the simplest trips. These agents were the ones who would offer vacation-hopefuls a variety of different options and then they'd book the plane tickets, lodging, and rental car fees while collecting another fee for themselves.
Working with an agent didn't guarantee and enjoyable trip, but this was a risk that people who weren't sure where to go had to contend with.
But that was the way things were back in the day and age before the Internet came along and opened up the world to anyone with a modem.
Global travel sites replaced the need for travel agents for the casual traveler. These sites allow vacationers to book travel to virtually any place in the world without ever leaving the house. Vacationers can plan trips that include lodging, air fare, and vehicle rental on the sites, but they do not get much information about the destinations from real live people.
The personal touch comes from sites like FollyBeach.com which is a site pertaining to just Folly Beach, SC. It includes information about everything in the town. Vacationers can use the site to book a vacation rental and also read about all the local businesses, things to do, and places to visit in the area and view photos, videos, and comments from locals and other vacationers.
But now the creators of FollyBeach.com have taken the vacation-planning experience one step further with the new free app offered for iPhone and Android users.
This app provides all the benefits of FollyBeach.com but brings the site and the Folly experience even closer. Users can access the app and open up the world of Folly Beach. They can book a vacation rental, plan a fishing charter during their visit, find out where seafood sales are, and plan just about every aspect of their upcoming vacation. The app isn't just for people planning a vacation, either. Locals and visitors can use the app to post photos, videos, and comments any time they want.
In addition, the app allows for users to link it to their Facebook and Twitter accounts so that they can receive all the latest updates from Folly Beach on their social networking sites.
The free app means FollyBeach.com is never farther away than one's fingertips.
