Quick Hint For iPhone/iPad users

One of the main reasons most accommodation owners are using/are interested in using VELUMrent is because of its mobility. Unlike other booking software out there which ties you to one or several computers, VELUMrent is a web application and can be accessed from any web enabled device, anytime and anywhere. Today such devices are widely available  (desktop computers, laptops and all the way to your smart phones).

I will share a little hint for all users who access VELUMrent from devices running iPhone OS (like iPod touch, iPhone or iPad).

The hint

If you have more than 8 accommodation units on your calendar, VELUMrent adds a horizontal scroll on the bottom so you can add more units without further squeezing unit columns and its data.

The problem – it isn’t possible to scroll VELUMrent’s reservations calendar sideways with one finger on iPhone OS devices as it is done on other “fixed” websites. The reason for this is that the reservations calendar is handled in a separate frame inside the existing web page (so that all settings are accessible to users at all times), and when you scroll the page this frame scrolls with it as a fixed object (as it should) which causes this problem.

However not all know that Apple addressed this issue sometime last year and that they implemented a way to scroll such embedded elements on every site with two fingers swipe.

So all you need to do is place two fingers on reservations calendar and move them left/right to scroll through all available units.

    If you ask people to describe Madrid in certain words, likelihood is « Nature »
    won’t come up often. Madrid’s Simple Life – To the outsider travelling alone, Madrid may
    seem like a really glitzy place full of glamorous revelers on their way to one swank party or another.
    Regarding the national scene, important stars for example Chano
    Dominguez, Juan Perro, Tequila, Diego “El Cigala” or Tomatito may
    be seen.
