Prepping for Learning Solutions 2011 - Step 1: Download App

iTunes App Link
For all instructions, video, and downloads go to this link. The Learning Solutions 2011 app is powered by ATIV software's Event Plus. Maneuvering the hectic world of conferences and expos has NEVER been easier. Functions include:
  • Access up-to-the minute session and event updates in the dynamic Now tab
  • Plan your day and build your own personalized schedule (for native apps)
  • Browse or search the interactive Program, Speaker and Expo guides
  • Find your way easily using Maps with an animated location pin
  • Stay organized by creating custom notes and thumbs up ratings
  • Easily share contact info with other attendees using Bump or QR codes
  • Follow the #ls2011 discussions with the integrated Twitter feed
  • View and share slides (for native apps)
  • Save time after the event and email all event notes in a comprehensive report
If you ever needed a reason to upgrade to a smart phone, this is it! So, if you're headed to Orlando next week and you have an iPhone, or iPad, or Blackberry, or Android device, your job one is installing this app.
Let me know what you think? What would you like to see the app do next year? Your suggestions are more than appreciated.

Brent, overall, I thought the app was fabulous!

More specific feedback: I know we were told not to say "put the evals in the app" but I'm gonna say it! Apart from that, the only issue I had was that the map part stopped working and I got a bunch of error messages on Thursday and Friday. I depend on the map, man. I'm very geographically challenged.

Otherwise, I thought it was extremely helpful and a far better replacement for all that conference bag paper than I ever would have expected. I even "bumped" with someone once. :)
