It seems like there really is an app for everything today and I was blown-away to see that Domain Roundtable made a custom app just for their conference! To me this shows some serious dedication and I think it goes to show how progressive and cutting-edge this conference is. The app is available as a free download from the Apple App store and features the full conference schedule, event locations, and feeds.
One of my favorite features of this app is the schedule. At most conferences I end-up loading the schedule in a web browser and panning around a giant page meant for a computer screen. If I have bad reception I usually can’t access the schedule which is equally annoying. Thanks to the Domain Rountable app I can pull-up the schedule anytime from anywhere. It’s little things like this that can go a long way and I think Domain Rountable is leading the pack when it comes to innovation here!
Along with the schedule there’s another killer feature that I have to mention – Location. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been to a conference and not known where the heck the evening activities are. By selecting “Location” you can see where each event is and even use Google maps to direct you there!
As a Domaining Blog geek I always like to see what people are saying about the conferences that I’m attending and by selecting “Feeds” I can do this right from the app as well.
I think this is a great idea and I’m more than certain that other conferences will soon follow suit. This will definitely save me time and makes it easy to check the schedule and find the location of all the events without having to ask a million people. My hat goes off to Thought Convergence for thinking out of the box on this one and making a great app and innovation in the conference space.
