The National Genealogical Society (NGS) has released the conference app for their upcoming conference to be held 7‒10 May 2014, in Richmond, Virginia.
The NGS Conference App is available for iOS and Android. Search the respective app store for “NGS 2014”. For Blackberry, Windows Phone, and web-enabled devices, access the app at http://m.core-apps.com/ngs2014. It also works for laptops and even desktop computers and can be synched to your mobile device.
Conference apps have become increasingly important in recent years. If you haven’t yet decided to attend the conference, it can be used to review the classes being offered, the presenters teaching them, and the vendors in the exhibition hall. If you’ve already registered for the conference, it can be used to review the schedule and plan your time. Once at the conference it can be used to manage your time, receive conference announcements, and follow Twitter message about the conference. (That’s what the #NGS2014GEN tag in the title of this article is all about.)
New this year is a five-minute video that reviews highlights of the app and explains how to use key features. The video can be found on the NGS conference website at http://conference.ngsgenealogy.org/attend/mobile-app/. Click on the App Video Tutorial.
