    Really worth it! Easy to schedule a conference... map... etc. Forget about paper... finally!

    Congratulation everyone for this app!

    Is this available via an ordinary browser as a Web app? I do not own a smartphone (they are, essentially, spying devices that track your every move and report it to unsavory corporations such as Google) but do own a tablet that I could use with Wi-Fi at the show.

    Not my tablet. It runs BSD UNIX.

    Is it strictly BSD UNIX, or is there another OS in that tablet?

    So I down loaded the app on to my I-phone and set it al up with all the forms and booths that I wanted to attend one I got to Hamvention and tried to use it would not load it was useless just a waste of time to try to mess with it.

    There is no other OS on that tablet. It's an Atom-based, PC-compatible tablet running FreeBSD and Lumina.

    I was a vendor at the Hamvention. Many visitor used the ARRL Hamvention App. I provided QR codes in my booth so visitors could scan them to visit my website. Many visitors looked for QR code scanner in the ARRL app but apparently there wasn't one. I know that there are many stand alone QR code apps out there, but it would have been nice to include one in the ARRL app.

    I was hoping that the Hamvention door prize numbers would be easy to look up on the app, but after the first ones were posted, the app malfunctioned & didn't show further drawings until & unless the "cache was cleared". Didn't learn about that until Sunday.
