Sports Lawyers Assoc Launches Conference App from AppCreatorPro!
The Sports Lawyers Association is holding its annual conference in Atlanta this week, and they are utilizing the AppCreatorPro platform for their conference app. Association manager Melissa Pomerene reports “Great reviews on the app!”
The SLA app includes all relevant information on education sessions, floorplans for the hotel, overviews of all conference activities by day, and a complete listing of all speakers and panelists, including biographical information. In addition, each conference attendee receives a listing in the app of their affiliation and contact information, live on the phone. This resource will make the app useful for attendees for weeks and months ahead.
Pomerene and her planning team came up with a terrific innovation for the conference that AppCreatorPro was able to turn into a feature of the app. For each conference session, moderators wanted to be able to field questions via a Twitter feed using a hashtag, and Melissa wanted those tweets to be visible in the tab for each individual session. Designers at AppCreatorPro utilized Twitter widget technology to create the resource that SLA wanted to offer attendees. The widget worked beautifully, so much so that Pomerene had it added to addtional sections during the show itself.
The app was hit nearly 1,000 times in the first two days of the conference. Please contact AppCreatorPro for a demonstration of the highly cutomized features of the SLA app and others we have created for organizations in the past year.Read More
“Toast Our Coast” Wine and Ale Trail App Goes Live!
Worcester County Tourism Announces a New Mobile App for Its Award-Winning Wine and Ale Trail, “Toast Our Coast”
December 6, 2012 The Worcester County Office of Tourism (WCT) in Snow Hill MD announced today that it has added a significant benefit for visitors to its popular “Toast Our Coast” Wine and Ale Trail on the Delmarva Peninsula, a mobile smartphone app. The app provides maps and directions to each participating winery and brewery, as well as an area map, contact information and hours of operation for each site, and an events listing and information about the area.
Mobile web apps are a fast-growing alternative for local businesses that want to get their message out to potential customers and constituencies via mobile platforms like smartphones and tablets. The “Toast Our Coast” app takes advantage of the smartphone’s geo-location capabilities, as well as the ability to call any of the participant locations with a tap of the screen, to keep a list of favorite establishments on the phone, and to share the app directly with friends via text message, email, or over social media like Facebook and Twitter.
Worcester County Director of Tourism Lisa Challenger decided to work with the mobile app development company AppCreatorPro, based in Huntingtown MD, to provide this resource. “The ‘Toast Our Coast’ website has been a very popular way to introduce visitors to the marvelous wineries and brew pubs of the Delmarva Peninsula,” says Challenger. “When we learned that we could extend that experience to the mobile phones that people have with them while out exploring, the idea of an app seemed like the logical next step.”

Connect with Your Customers
Your customers are growing more mobile everyday. Unlike in the past, where your digital connection with your customers was limited to the time they were sitting at the computer, now you have the capability to travel with them, wherever they go, by staking out your claim to a spot on their mobile device or smartphone. When your customers install your app on their phones, they are giving you permission to market your products and services to them 24/7.
And with many choices of modules, you can maintain closer and closer connections with your customers. Most importantly, give them the ability to share you and your app with all of their friends and contacts with the “Share My App” module. Or give them the capability to email you a question using the “Contact Me!” module. Provide your Twitter and Facebook updates with the “Social Media” module.
The system also supports videos, image galleries, maps and directions–anything you can think of to make it easy for your customers to connect. The sections or “keys” below give a good idea of the possibilities, straight from Christopher’s real estate app:Back Read More
