Ratings and Reviews
I think the fact that this app lets you add in your own events makes this the most useful conference app experience possible. One glitch though, when I added a meeting for 10 am, it showed up after my 11 am meeting. Probably an oversight in the underlying time zone settings or something!
If I were to make any improvements, I would suggest being able to click on a room name in a meeting description and pulling up the map of the room location.
Overall very helpful
Overall a great app to help figure out your schedule. Only thing I might have added was an 'events near me' section since the conference was split out over three buildings (A,B, Omni). I found myself sprinting to get from session to session (b214 to a415 was the longest hike). Also having the floor of the hotel would have been helpful since knowing which floor the cottonwood room was on became a thing.
The first thing I did was promptly lose my shuttle flyer in the bowels of my purse. It was so convenient to be able to whip out my phone and find the information I needed on sessions, locations, and shuttles quickly and efficiently.
