The other day I saw that my buddy Scott Kelby had debuted the new iPhone App for Photoshop World and since I recently registered I thought I would give it a whirl. I figured that it would be good but I wasn’t prepared for just how good. This is a great app! Granted, it’s not something that I’ll need after the conference is over but I guarantee you that it will get a lot of use up to that point. The thing that most impressed me is the way everything is so logically laid out. It just makes using it so intuitive.
When you open the App you are met with the NAPP splash screen with all the navigation options. I decided to jump right in and start picking out my classes by clicking on the View My Schedule link.
From there I started adding classes by sliding down the screen until I came to the first vacancy.
A quick swipe of the finger on the vacant time slot took me to a list of all the classes in each track.
If I wanted to learn more or select a class all I had to do was tap it to open up a screen with more information about the class including the date, time, instructor info, classroom location, and a small About section that could expand for even more info.
To add the class to my personal schedule I just tapped the plus sign at the top and I was asked if I wanted to add just that class or all the classes in that Track.
Not only is there a complete conference schedule but also a complete list of classes, including those in the Expo Hall. Speaking of the Expo Hall, there’s even a list of exhibitors that I can check out, just in case I want to find my favorite gear manufacturer on the show floor.
I just hit some of the main features but there is even more to this app and it is sure to keep you informed and on the right track. If you are going to Photoshop World in Orlando and you own an iPhone or iPod Touch, you absolutely need to download this free app. You won’t know how you ever managed to navigate PSW without it.
