RADNOR, Pa., Dec. 10 HTH Worldwide, a global health and safety services company, announced today that the global user base for its mPassportŪ mobile medical concierge service has surpassed 20,000 world travelers, boosted in part by the release of mPassport Paris, a new, well-received iPhone application. mPassport allows users to search for carefully selected, English-speaking doctors in 180 countries and request an appointment on short notice.
World travelers can subscribe to the world-wide version of mPassport by visiting www.mpassport.com and registering to use the mobile web site. Now iPhone users can download mPassportŪ Paris from the iTunes store to review detailed profiles of carefully selected doctors, dentists, hospitals and pharmacies, consult a map and get directions. They can also use translation tools to find the French equivalent for hundreds of U.S. prescription and over the counter drugs and to hear key medical terms and phrases spoken in French. A professional review of mPassport Paris recently concluded, "I give this app 9/10 because mPassport is a must have for world travelers." (Visit freshapps.com for the full review.)
"HTH Worldwide lives at the intersection of technology and safe, easy travel and we are committed to creating truly convenient and essential mobile assistance services," said Angelo Masciantonio, Chief Executive Officer of HTH Worldwide. "The response to our new iPhone app - including a consumer five-star rating - has been very gratifying. In the near future, we will be introducing a series of downloadable apps for world capitals such as London, Rome and other major travel centers to serve an ever-growing customer base."
mPassport Paris is being offered free of charge for a limited time in anticipation of tech leaders and visionaries traveling this week to Paris to attend Le Web, one of the most highly regarded global tech conferences convened every year.
