Thomas Paisley - Digital Team, @CIPD
Firstly I'd like to apologize for the title, it's truly awful. But there is good news, we've launched a new app and we want to sing about it.
The use of smartphones has rapidly increased in the UK over the past 12 months and we've jumped on the bandwagon.
The app is called CIPD Events and is available on Android, Apple iPhone and other internet-enabled smart phones.

The purpose of this app was to increase your experience of attending our CIPD events socially and to connect you to information in a faster, easier way.
The best features of the app is My Agenda, which is for registered conference delegates to view the sessions they've booked onto. Really handy to keep track of the sessions you are currently in where to be next.
Also the Free Learning section shows you all of the free events taking place over the 2 days of the Annual conference next week. Along with maps of the conference floor, social media feeds and speaker and exhibitor lists, we hope that this can be a really useful addition at the Annual Conference and all of our future events.
This is our first conference app at CIPD so we would really appreciate your feedback!
If you have any issues with your app, feel free to let me know directly here and I'll be more than happy to help.
If you are attending the Annual conference in Manchester next week, please come and say hello!
Thank you for your comments. There may be a short delay in this going live on the blog page as we moderate the comments added to our blogs.
