RootsTech 2012 App Info

Tweets and Facebook postings have alerted RootsTech attendees to the availbility of a free and very essential RootsTech2012 app for iPad, iPhone and Android.

I've downloaded it to both my iPhone and my iPad 1, and have worked on "staring" those events on the schedule that interest me. It does permit multiple items per hour to be "star"ed. Once you have done this, the items appear on "My Schedule" within the app. I have also been able to manually add non-scheduled events like meet-ups with friends. The list on the iPhone app RootsTech '12  "Dashboard" includes:

  • My Schedule
  • Maps
  • Events (the official schedule)
  • Speakers
  • Conference Documents
  • Photo Gallery
  • Videos
  • Twitter
  • Friends (be sure to make your own profile there)
  • News
I haven't checked the "syncing" between two devices so I am not sure if it works to make entries on one device that show up later on my other device.

If you are coming to Salt Lake for RootsTech 2012, then get this app!

Happy family tree climbing!
