The 2016 ALA Midwinter Meeting mobile application allows you to browse through presentations, speaker details and other resources from the conference.
Presentation slides are also available for many of the sessions. You can draw and highlight directly on the slides using your finger, and you can take notes adjacent each slide. All your notes are saved online and can be accessed through your online personal summary.
Cannot see personal sessions. Cannot rank concurrent sessions so know what is 2nd choice if 1st choice full or too far away. Some features either don't work or are completely unintuitive (personal summary). Searching is weird. I can favourite my exhibitors I want to visit but cannot sort them by booth number so I have a logical plan to follow. Nor can I get a list just of my favourite vendors. Crashes constantly. Not even worth the time it took to download this free app.
This app is pretty close to being useless. I only get a blank screen with a search box when I try to view my schedule (which doesn't include personal sessions). Attempting to look at info regarding the shuttle results in a blank white page. Furthermore, none of this information seems readily available on the website, so there is not even that as a back up. After several years of a very nice app, this year has been a huge disappointment. I hope the organization did not pay too much for this service.
Unable to log in. It tells me I need an Internet connection, but I am on strong WiFi and have 5 bars of 4G.
Lacked categories for events and didn't include keynote spreadsheets in personalized event listing
Unable to download :(
Schedule will not load. The schedule is the only reason I use the app.
