while an iOS and Android TechEd app would not doubt be appreciated, there is zero reason Windows Phone 8, Windows RT, and Windows 8 Pro tablets shouldn't have an event app...
Oktaset has already confirmed they are going to do an Android app!
What would you like to see in a TechEd app for any device?
Agendas, conference room locations, convention center map, announcements, news, location of vendors, etc.
Last year we had a pretty good app on Windows Phone 7, I'd assume there would be a Windows Phone 8 version.
App will happen. We'll let you know when it goes live.
Me being the heretic that I am, I'll be happily attending a Microsoft convention but wishing there was an Android app.
But hey, Microsoft makes a fair amount of money off Android so I can't feel too bad.
wasn't there a web app last year that worked on the phones (when it wasn't down)? I thought it was pretty good and works cross platform, why create an app for each device.
Yes. There will be a multi-platform app that works on Android, iPhone, Windows Phone and Windows 8. It will be available in May.
@DBegley: Will we just have to check the apps stores or will a email be sent to let us know when it is ready?
@patrickbdunlap Yes. We'll make it well known when it is ready to go. We'll post on the forum, tweet from @TechEd_NA using #msTechEd, facebook.com/teched, on the TechEd blog site. We'll include it in an email to registered attendees as well.
Guess it will be hard to miss...
