New NGS Conference Mobile App

I downloaded the new NGS 2013 Family History Conference app and I love it. I have already planned out my conference schedule and have it on both my iPhone and iPad. Here are some of the app features I find useful:
  • Browse by speaker so that you are sure not to miss any of your favorites
  • Read about the exhibitors and star the ones you want to visit
  • Access maps of the conference center and exhibit hall to locate rooms and vendors at the conference
  • Follow Twitter feeds right from the app
  • Share contact information with friends
  • Download handouts when they become available
  • See news and updates
Julie Miller has given me permission to share the announcement about the new mobile app from the NGS 2013 Family History Conference blog:
Get the most from your NGS 2013 Family History Conference experience by downloading our new and improved mobile app. Use the NGS app to help you make the most of your trip to Las Vegas before, during and after the conference.

The NGS 2013 Family History Conference app is completely free! Improve your conference experience by taking the schedule, maps, Twitter, and more with you on your phone or other mobile device.
