If you have attended the annual ILTA Conference before, you know navigating the 'chock-full' schedule can be quite daunting, not to speak of keeping track of all the educational and networking opportunities the conference provides. Again this year, ILTA is providing a free app, ILTA 2013 Conference App, to help you with this organization & planning challenge. The 2013 edition is being made available for Apple iPhone/iPad, Android and a mobile web version. There is no BlackBerry version this year, but BlackBerry users can use the mobile site. Find it here:
- iOS - Search in App Store for "ILTA 2013 Annual" AVAILABLE NOW
- Android - Visit Google Play on your device and search for "ILTA 2013" COMING
- Mobile web version - http://m.iltanet.org COMING
The app provides access to the conference agenda, speaker details, the attendee list, conference Twitter feed, exhibit hall directory, Caesers info, new product announcements, latest ILTA news and more. For the past couple of years, we have praised ILTA's IT Director/guru Clay Gibney for this app and this year is no different. New features include the ability to email your notes to yourself; tweet directly from the app with hashtags automatically added; add sessions to your device calendar; see where a session is with the "map" button (helpful in Caesers!) and access to session handouts/slidedecks from within the app.
The app was widely used during the 2012 conference with more than 3,200 installations - 81% Apple devices; 14% Android devices; and 5% BlackBerry devices. The app was opened more than 91,000 times and 3,100 online session evaluations were submitted.
