2014 OSM App and Web Planner
Introducing the 2014 OSM Meeting App
The 2014 OSM app is now available and free to use. The app makes it easy for attendees to navigate the conference just by logging into the mobile app with their OSM registration details. Attendees may use the web site planner (instructions below) or the app to create and update their personal schedule. To offer users more convenience and device choice during 2014 OSM, the conference app smart syncs their mobile app data via the cloud so that users can switch between mobile operating systems like iOS and Android and between multiple computers via the web site.
The free iPhone and iPad conference app is available now in the App Store. The free Android event app is available in the Android market. Search for “Ocean Sciences Meetings 2014”. A web version for Windows Phone and other web-enabled devices is available.
OSM App Features
