Building an iPhone app for conference attendees? Take a look at the NBC Olympics iPhone app for inspiration


Are there any conference mobile apps out there?

Maybe I need to develop an app for conferences… hmm..

Here’s the inspiration:

The NBC Olympics iPhone app is a well thought out application that combines schedule information, news, highlights, scores and has social integration with push notification.  With all the features packed in, you can easily see how this app can complement your Winter Olympic experience.   It’s also good example of what I view as a powerful mobile conference app… one that complements your experience and helps you navigate the maze of options.

Let me know if you find other conference apps.
Or, if you need an app like this contact me.
