“Le Kiosk” Ipad app for Hotel Guest Only

I haven’t heard of something similar for American Hotel groups, have you? Following the European launch of Apple’s iPad, French luxury hotel chain Sofitel launched an iPad newspaper application service for guests, called “Le Kiosk”. There’s an App for that…

The Kiosk app serves as an interactive press review, offering a selection of daily newspapers and magazines on economics, sports, fashion and lifestyle. Guests staying in the most prestigious Sofitel suites and locations in four major European cities – Paris, London, Munich and Brussels – are provided with iPads during their stay.

The application allows guests to choose from a selection of 6 newspapers and magazines for each of the 6 selected countries: France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Italy and the United States.

Le Monde, The Wall Street Journal, El Pais, The Financial Times, Die Welt, Vogue and l’Officiel, French fashion magazine with unique archives dating back to 1920… are just some of the titles available for easy browsing by users.

What a great idea (app) I want to browse French Vogue archives while sipping a cocktail around the pool…
