EclipseCon 2011 Mobile Apps

We’ll have mobile applications available for people during the EclipseCon 2011 conference this year thanks to the awesome folks at itemis mobile.

I’ve been doing some beta testing recently and things are going well.

My question to all y’all is what type of features would you like to see in the final application? I was thinking of adding some social media aspects to the application involving tweeting the talks you’re about to attend amongst other things. It would also be nice to vote-in-application for sessions you’ve attended, but in the end, we can only do so much to improve the application.

What do you think?

    Android?

  • Yes, there’s an Android application planned for this year 🙂

    This is very nice…i heard the same thing about during ESE.
    Social media integration is a good idea.

  • I’m also working on a BlackBerry Version of EclipseCon Conference App
    would be great if this would also be mentioned at the sites.
    and as I know Christian Campo is working on iPad APP for the conference.
    together with iPhone + Android from itemis then all platforms are covered.

  • Also, there will be the reduced mobile website as fallback. It works on (nearly) any device with a browsers.

  • this is great heiko,
    because my BB App per ex. doesn’t support old devices with outdated ugly UI 😉

  • Feel free to post feature requests and bug reports at http://itemismobile.lighthouseapp.com/projects/68993-eclipsecon-app-2011/overview .

    As Chris mentioned, we’re currently beta testing with a small group of testers. Everything is looking good so far and we think we’ll submit the app next week. This means a broader audience can download and start using the app one or two weeks later.

    Additional features such as Twitter integration will be rolled out by way of updates.

  • The Android version will become available by the end of next week.

  • Two questions:

    1. Is the iOS version for iPhone only or is there an iPad version, too?
    2. Can I beta test or do you have enough testers?
