A review of this year’s Conference app

Well, this must be some sort of record. It’s 11 days before I go to Conference and I’ve actually downloaded the Conference App and filled in my schedule so I know roughly where I’m supposed to throughout Conference. That’s not strictly speaking true because there are still times when I’ll be required to split myself in three or even four. If anyone has a Hermione Grainger time-turner I could borrow, I’d be ever so grateful.

This year’s Conference app (available by searching Lib Dem Conf on your chosen app store) is the best yet. There were no problems with using My Schedule – and in fact it’s much easier than it used to be and it asks you if you want to put things automatically into your device calendar as well. I always do so I get all the reminders.

The information seems a lot better organised than usual, too. The exhibition and training are in separate bits.

There are new sections which will come in to their own at Conference. There’s a ‘what’s happening now” guide and a media wall so you can see what’s being tweeted so you can head for any excitement.

It’s definitely worth familiarising yourself with the agenda at this stage. I usually do it on the train there, which is a recipe for disaster. This year’s app looks like it is the most useful to date. Enjoy.

    I agree it’s well organised etc, but it still doesn’t manage to synchronise across my iphone and ipad. I’d like to browse and fill it in on the bigger screen but have it available on the day on the smaller screen of the phone, but I can’t unless I spend the time filling it in on both devices. Every other app that I have duplicated does synchronise so why not this one?

    @Maureen Rigg, I agree it is annoying that you can’t sync across the two devices. I go for the next best option and use the app on my iPad, adding my schedule to the calendar and then sync the calendar to my iPhone. At least this way I can use my iPhone to see where I’m supposed to be.
