Hi Tracey,

Thanks for your comments.  I had similar ones and asked them to Josh when I saw him. He said the app kept updating and was sluggish because it was still in beta. He said that since they had no registration data to go by the app updated itself with every new registration. He said that now since it has a base to go by it will work much better in Marakesh.  I hope so.  I also sent hm my suggestions that each user be asked to log into the schedule if they want to download calendars entree. This way the app could synch with the data you download so if you created a schedule n the desktop by downloading specific calendar entries these would populate a schedule for you and then that could synch with the app when you logged in. This way the app could have your schedule and then it could update rooms or times as needed. This would make the app more usable to many others

The other suggestion i gave was to work with the meeting people to get there notes on where each room is located and feed that into the app and the maps. This would give us written directions to go along with the floor plan. Apparently the meetings team writes up these notes and hands them to their staff so why not add this info to the app so all can benefit.

>> Hi all,
>> Dublin was my first ICANN meeting and the new meeting app really helped me in trying to figure out what was going on. Hopefully a few of you noticed me (generally at the back) of some of the At Large related meetings.
>> Regarding the app I installed the Android version on both my mobile & tablet. It worked very well in general, but I'd make a few suggestions:
>> 1. Maybe some form of auto-update preference as I seemed to be clicking on the red update now dot pretty frequently.
>> 2. As I was using two devices it would have been really handy to have synchronisation of information between them. For example I updated my profile information on one device but that wasn't shared and the personal schedules were totally different between the two devices.
>> 3. The ability to add sessions/my whole personal schedule to the native calendar (i.e. Google calendar for my Andriod devices) would be great. As it was my nightly ritual was to go through both device's personal schedules and the add the sessions of interest via the main ICANN meeting website and the add to calendar functionality found there.
>> Thanks
