The EGU 2012 mobile app is now available for iPhones and Android smartphones. To download it, you can scan the QR code available at the General Assembly website or go directly to http://app.egu2012.eu/ on your mobile device. You will be directed to the proper app version download for your particular smartphone.
Once you open the app, the home menu will show you four possibilities. You can “Browse” and “Search” the meeting programme, select presentations to be added to your “Personal Programme”, or find out more about the General Assembly or the conference location in “Info”.
You can browse the meeting programme in “Browse”, and choose a session or group of sessions (example, Medal Lectures, ML) for a list of talks including title, date, time and location. The coloured square indicates in what level the room is located (Blue Level – Basement, Green Level – First Floor, etc.).
By clicking on a listed talk, you’ll be taken to the “Description” menu where you will find more information about the presentation in question. To add an oral or poster presentation to your “Personal Programme” (accessible from the home menu), simply click on the star on the top right corner of the “Description” menu.
Presentations already added to your “Personal Programme” will be listed with a yellow star.
We think our conference organiser Copernicus outdid themselves in creating this wonderfully looking app. What do you think?
