RootsTech 2013: There’s an App for That!

Are you going to RootsTech in March? Do you have an iPad, tablet or smRootsTech Appart phone? Then you need to download a free app!

RootsTech 2013 is your personal conference assistant. It delivers to your palm all the  information you need on exhibitors and speakers along with a map and customizable schedule. For example, I’m speaking at RootsTech in four different sessions. You can find each session listed by day or track under the Events icon, or you can go right to my name under the Speakers icon and see all four sessions at once, with a description and location of each one. Add one (or more) of my sessions to your own schedule. You’ll also find me under the Exhibitors icon. You can bookmark or schedule each exhibitor you want to visit, then mark them off as you do. I hope you’ll come see me at my booth!

You can even have a social life on this app. Publish a profile if you want others to see your name on a guest list. Then look for others who have done that under the Attendees icon. Create a network of Friends with whom you can chat and share notes (and meet for lunch!). Stay updated with the app’s News feed, and share in the conference buzz on Twitter and Facebook.

The link I gave you above takes you to the App Shopper for the iOS universal app; it’s also in Apple’s Apps Store.
