New to the SBLAAR App?

The SBLAAR 2013 app is out and once again it looks to be extremely helpful again this year in planning your conference and navigating it while you are there. I thought I would highlight some of the app's features if you are not already familiar with it.

Once you download and open the app you have to go through two loading screens (somewhat annoying but the app is still well worth it).

Once you are into the app you are presented with a variety of options:

  • Build your schedule
  • Browse sessions by track
  • Browse speakers
  • Browse exhibitors
  • Search
  • View event maps
  • Links to the AAR and SBL websites
  • Twitter feed that shows all the #SBLAAR13 hashtags

If you are unsure what you are looking for you can browse by speakers or sessions.

But the most helpful way to find what you are looking for is the search feature. This allows you to search the whole program in the palm of your hand. You can search by keyword, speaker, programs, and more.

If you click on a particular session it will bring you with a variety of information and options.

If you add notes to several sessions you can email them to yourself, which is helpful if there is a handful of sessions you are debating on going to. In order to email them click the more  option in the bottom right and click email notes .

Some other handy features include maps of the convention center, twitter feed for the #SBLAAR13 hashtag, and your schedule.
