Speakers, schedules, maps, tweets and feeds...

After I commented that I couldn't believe there was an iPhone app for MIX 10 and nothing for any other mobile platform, Viafo put this together in just a couple of days (full disclosure - I've known Dave O'Neil for quite a few years, he asked me what I wanted it to do and I said 'how about everything the iPhone app promises?'). I can see what people are saying about MIX on Twitter and the official MIX blogs, I can see sessions - by day or by room - and tweet the ones I want to go to, I can get the list of speakers and see their sessions (and if they've shared a twitter name I can follow them on twitter from the app). By the time you download it, it should have maps of the convention centre; that'll be handy as I don't know it as well as the Venetian but I know it's a lot of walking. Ideally I'd love it to let me see my own schedule that I've signed up to on the MIX site, but I'm not sure if A the MIX API makes that possible and B how much anyone can put in an app this quickly ;-)

If you're going to MIX (or following along online) and you haven't followed the iPhone crowd, 'there's an app for that'.

We could have done the integration to the Mix API and in future we'd plan to but done that much back end work in the time we had available.
