From Hotel-Booking Eyeglass Apps to Homeless Hotel Bookings

Hotel booking is another one of those tasks that has become unbelievable easy thanks to the Internet first and now, smartphones, apps and social media.

Even social media sites can now be used to set up hotel bookings. Whereas back in the day you would have to call up a hotel and have a conversation with someone to book, some places now allow you to initiate a booking by simply tweeting at them or contacting them through other social media.

In an era where every kind of business and service comes with its own app, it's unsurprising that many hotels and accommodation-providers offer apps through which bookings can be made, modified and cancelled.

There are also apps and websites that can help people find highly niche accommodation options that suit their highly specific needs.
