Our mobile website for Anthrocon 2012 is now up and running! The URL is:
Special thanks to the MyConbook project for making this happen!
"Why didn't you build a mobile app again this year?"
Last year's mobile apps weren't official convention products, but written by volunteers. Rather than burden them again with the same task this year, we felt that a mobile website, which can be used by anyone with a mobile device (be it an iPhone, Android, iPad, tablet, laptop, etc.) that can browse the web. This makes the content available to a wider audience of convention goers. Any updates that need to be made during the convention are also much easier to make, since deploying a new application is not required.
Just a few days left until the convention. We'll see you this weekend at Anthrocon 2012!
I sorta wish I'd waited before hacking the AC google schedule into something my phone could easily use ! (It really doesn't like using US times on a British phone - you end up with events in the middle of the night ! )
I presume the inability to display the schedule is down to the convention not being open yet ?
Doesn't work on blackberry
The website schedule appears to not match the mobile schedule. I am ASSUMING this is due to time zone issues, as everything is off by two hours, and amazingly, I am two hours away. Might be worth mentioning in the main post, something to the effect of the schedule showing times based off of where your phone is, not the event location. Unless it actually is all messed up by two hours... then there's a problem. =P
your phone's going to adjust its clock as it moves so i wouldn't worry about this.
