Inman News rolls out Real Estate Connect app

Users can personalize schedules, receive real-time updates

Inman News has launched a "Connect SF 2011" mobile application for its Real Estate Connect conference in San Francisco.

The event will take place July 27-29, 2011, at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square hotel. The app includes the conference program; times, locations, and speakers for each session; and the ability to save sessions on a personal schedule, take and save notes, find a room with built-in floor plans, and share session information through email, Facebook and LinkedIn. The app also includes a Twitter feed for posts that include the #ICSF hashtag.

The home screen will provide real-time updates and reminders about scheduled sessions and program changes. Will Hansen, Inman News vice president of events, described the app as "a Swiss army knife for our attendees."
