(Charlottesville, VA) May 23, 2011—Silverchair Information Systems announced the release of the first Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) Annual Meeting iPhone Application—SSP 2011—which became available for free in the iTunes App store today. As part of Silverchair’s sponsorship of SSP 2011, the web product development company built a custom app so meeting attendees can navigate the annual meeting from their mobile phones.
With this new application, attendees who want to start planning their meeting can apply the easy to use “click to add to schedule” functionality built right into every session. This one-click functionality integrates seamlessly with the iPhone’s native calendar function. Users will additionally find helpful the SSP 2011 app’s customized map navigation that will allow them to easily find the location of sessions and exhibitors. Bios of all speakers are also included to provided background for each conference session. The most dynamic features of the SSP 2011 application, however, can be found behind the “News” tab where users will find the most recent news from the conference twitter feed (#SSP2011) along with live coverage of the meeting via SSP’s acclaimed Scholarly Kitchen blog.
“As organizational members and sponsors of SSP, we wanted to contribute something to the organization that meeting attendees would find useful,” noted Jake Zarnegar, President of Silverchair Information Systems. “We have built a number of mobile applications for our clients and thought an SSP 2011 meeting application would be something that attendees would both use and value.”
The SSP 2011 is available now, free of charge, in the iTunes app store (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ssp-2011/id436472452?mt=8).
