The Wolf Bytes is proud to announce the availability of the free TechEd 2010 Scheduling and Twitter tool influenced with the Windows Phone 7 Metro design guide lines. After you download the session data, you can view the schedule and build your own custom schedule. With the twitter tool, you can view tweets for the main conference hash tag #TechEd as well as build up a favorite list of tags you wish to follow.
Windows Phone 6.5
Availability for Windows Phone 6.5 is through the Windows Phone Marketplace. The current version sends tweets via SMS, look for a update by the time TechEd starts that will allow you to send tweets directly from the application. To download and install, either search for TechEd or look under Tools and then Developer tools on your windows mobile phone in the Marketplace. Or click here to get it online.
You can install the scheduling and twitter tool directly to your Vista or Windows desktop. This version is presented to you in a Windows Phone 7 skin. Download the Desktop widget from here.
You can download a free version of the scheduling and twitter tool to your Android V2.1 phone. Just go to the marketplace and search for TechEd.
UPDATED 6/3/2010: There seems to be a bug in android (or the way I’m using the WebView) where session data is not stored when you close the app. This is not on all devices, but if this is happening to you, please use the web URL http://eventmgr.slsys.net/android.htm and see if that helps. I’m currently researching a work around but this may not be completed by the time TechEd starts.
UPDATED 6/5/2010: Uploaded V1.3 to Android Marketplace should contain fix for losing session data when application is terminated. If this fixes it for you, let me know via @ByteMaster or Kevin@TheWolfBytes.com
Don’t look for the iPhone/iPad application on the App store. Follow these two very easy steps.
- Open Safari and enter the address http://eventmgr.slsys.net/iPhone.htm
- Once the page is opened, click the “+” on the bottom of your screen and then click “Add to Home Screen”. This will create an icon in your home menu that will allow you to start the app.
The iPhone version will work on the the iPad, however look for a more resolution appropriate version by the time TechEd starts.
