I was excited to receive the following announcement from the National Genealogical Association! The mobile apps are now such a convenience to reference the conference schedule, map and syllabus.

Mobile Conference App released–ready for download

Get the most from your NGS 2015 Family History Conference experience by downloading the mobile app. Use the app to help you make the most of your trip to St. Charles before, during and after the conference.

The NGS Conference App is available for iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone, and web-enabled devices. Search your app store for NGS Family History Conferences.

New this year, we have introduced a multi-event NGS app. This allows attendees to download a single app and access all current and future NGS conferences by adding new events to this app.
