March 6, 2014 — Leave a comment

I’m speaking at Mobile Tech Conference (MTC) in Munich and I also developed the BlackBerry 10 Conference App. You can download this app from BlackBerry World:

bbworld-mtc2014

The APP runs on all BlackBerry 10 Devices with 10.1+, supports dark and bright theme, portrait and landscape and also shortcuts from Q5/Q10.

Before starting with the app you should go to the settings from App menu (swipe down) and connect your Calendar and Notebook.

From Home Screen you can Invite others to the app, leave a review, CheckIn via Foursquare, Open the BlackBerry Map, get all tweets on #mobiletechcon and more.

Set the Calendar to be synchronized with your scheduled Sessions or the Notebook:

IMG_20140305_212904

If a calendar is connected, you’ll find your session schedule inside your Calendar and so you’ll get a Notification in BlackBerry Hub 15 Minutes before Session starts.

From all Lists with Sessions, Workshops, Tracks or only scheduled Sessions in many cases it’s not easy to get the overview: what will happen in which room, which sessions are running at the same time or as next in a room or if there are some holes in your schedule.

That was the reason why I developed a special Overview Page. Here’s a Sessionlist from a selected track for tuesday:

From ActionBar Overflow menu you can get the Overview:

IMG_20140305_213117

This Overview is generated dynamically from your selections – a really great way to do this using Cascades in native apps. it’s so fast that you don#t recognize the dynamic creation.

The Rooms are at x-axis and time slots are in y-axis. The height of a session container depends from duration.

You can switch to landscape if there are many rooms side-by-side. You can also pinch & zoom.

Tap on a Session Container marks this one as selected and you can get the details and do what you want: set / unset as favorite, tweet about session, get Presenters, write a noe, …

Wish you fun with Conference2Go MTC on your BlackBerry 10 Device.

As you probably know I’m doing this app in my spare time. If there are any bugs or requests please let me know using the Feedback from Application menu.
