There have been some updates to the Cisco Events app this year that I wanted to share. I also just looked to see when I last posted about the app and that was 2015 – HERE. In case you do not have the app yet, here are the links:
Apple iOS (iPhone and iPad) Android
So, what are some of the new features this year that we should be aware of, well they are:
New Home Page and Navigation
This year the home page is more personal and made for just you! You will now have a single place to see your schedule, favorites, recommendations, and find your surveys!
The smart agenda will provide customized recommendations with an additional location filter. Cisco Live will be using beacon technology to detect your location and make recommendations. If you need directions, you can click on the compass icon and the app will guide you to your session. (Just remember to look up when you are walking!)
Cisco Connected Mobile Experience – Wayfinding
Cisco will really be embracing Connected Mobile Experience (CMX) this year! As mentioned in the previous section, CMX can guide you navigate the conference in real-time.
Cisco Connected Mobile Experience – Find my Friends
CMX is also able to help you locate and find your friends! One of the challenges of a large conference sometimes is finding people! This should make it easier to find someone now!
Cisco Connected Mobile Experience – Track your steps
Lastly, CMX can also help you track your steps! In previous years many of us have used a fitness tracker to count our steps – this year the app can do that too!
