NGS 2012: A new conference mobile app

WorldVitalRecords and MyHeritage are gearing up for the National Genealogical Society (NGS) conference, set for Cincinnati, Ohio, from May 9-12. Read more about the NGS conference here.

Mobile App for NGS

NGS just released a mobile app for the conference.  Several recent events – such as Jamboree 2011 and Rootstech 2012 – also provided very popular mobile apps, used by many attendees to check sessions, special  events, speaker information and much more on their smart phones, IPads and other devices. No longer do conference attendees need to carry around a heavy printed syllabus.

Some of the mobile app’s best features:

  • Schedule

With the Mobile app, you can browse the entire schedule by day, speaker, and topic (track). You can also check topics by audience skill level – beginner, beginner intermediate, intermediate, intermediate advanced, advanced and all. Can’t decide which level is appropriate for you? There’s probably an app for that!

  • My Schedule

As you flip through the pages of speakers, topics, levels, simply click to add those of interest to “My Schedule” to your calendar. Remember to have your smartphone or device turned on, the guidebook app running and calendar running to be reminded of events you select.
