I'd love to keep an archive of older events Or the ability to dump my started content etc to xml/Google drive or whatever before the next schedule is released. I was using starred events to know what videos from the archive I wanted to watch. The app app is great, and really helps plan your route at the event. Thanks as ever, especially for responding to feedback.

Much better than the schedule app I had a little difficulty downloading the schedule at first but this fixes all of the problems I had with the other schedule app. You can now see what's coming up really easily and set how long before the event you want to be notified. Great work.

Fantastic app! This app is very easy to use; better than many conference apps I've tried. The notifications for upcoming sessions I've starred can be turned off or changed in the settings, and I appreciated the links to a map of the session location for each session so I can find my way there quickly. The only improvement I can think of is to make it easier to find the next sessions as the conference goes on; right now when I go to the list of sessions I starred, or a list of all the sessions in a specific track, it lists them chronologically and as the conference goes on, I have to check the current time and scroll to the appropriate place in the list. I would love it if it jumped past or greyed out the sessions that are over so that I can more easily identify current & future sessions. Thank you Christophe!

Martin Richard

Cool! Is there a way to generate a schedule from the stared events list? That would be awesome!

Niels Swimberghe

Great app. Awesome, only the settings icon feels odd. You might put it in the overflow menu.
