Abstract

Mobil uygulamalar, son yıllarda kişiler arasında kullanımı hızla yaygınlaşan akıllı teknolojiler olarak dikkat çekmektedir. Turizm, mobil uygulamaların dünya genelinde yaygın bir şekilde kullanıldığı alanlardan biridir. Turizm işletmelerinin potansiyel müşterilerine ulaşmak için kendi mobil uygulamalarını geliştirdikleri görülmektedir. Bununla birlikte, destinasyonların konum, ulaşım, sahip olduğu turistik çekiciliklere ilişkin bilgilerin yer aldığı mobil gezi rehberi uygulamaları ziyaretçiler için önemli bir gezi rehberi ve bilgi kaynağı işlevi görmektedir. Bu bağlamda bu çalışmanın amacı, mobil seyahat uygulamalarının turizm endüstrisinde kullanımı hakkında bilgiler vermek ve Karadeniz Ereğli destinasyonu için bir mobil gezi rehberi (KdzEregli Travel Guide-KTG) uygulama önerisi geliştirmektir. Uygulamanın geliştirilmesinde, doküman analizi tekniği ile ikincil kaynaklardan veriler toplanmış ve çevrimiçi uygulama geliştirici kullanılmıştır. Bu uygulamayı kullanarak Karadeniz Ereğli’de bulunan turizm işletmeleri, müze ve rekreasyon alanları hakkında ulaşım, konum, sunulan hizmetler gibi bilgilere erişmek mümkün olacaktır. Ayrıca bu uygulama, Karadeniz Ereğli destinasyonuna özel geliştirilen ilk mobil gezi rehberi uygulaması olması açısından önem taşımaktadır.
