SOE Live Schedule for iPhone/iPad

If you are an iPhone/iPad user and attending SOE Live, then you’ll want to head to the App Store to download Greg “Rothgar” Spence‘s SOE Live Schedule app.

Greg developed this iOS app four years ago and, in his extremely limited spare time has maintained it every year for SOE Live. This year, Josh “Autenil” Kriegshauser chipped in to get it updated. The SOE Live schedule app has a “My Schedule” feature which lets you choose which panels should appear on your schedule, as well as tabs about Dining, News, and Travel.

SOE Live Schedule for Android, Windows Phone, Palm, Symbian, Blackberry by EQ2Wire

Our own Dethdlr, Lead Programmer for EQ2U, saw the need for an Android app and stepped up to develop a web application which works on nearly all smartphones, even in airplane mode! Starting last year, the app also supports a “My Schedule” feature, allowing you to pick your panels and view them in a single page.

The EQ2Wire SOE Live Schedule “web app” is really just a skinned jQuery Mobile website using the same data as the official SOE Live app.

There is no app to “install”. Simply visit the EQ2Wire SOE Live Schedule website on your phone and then open the browser menu and choose Add a Bookmark to your Home Screen. This will add an icon to your phone’s home screen that lets you access the SOE Live schedule immediately.

After the jump, some known bugs/issues…

Bugs/Issues

  • On some devices, you must first add a Bookmark to the site before adding it to your Home Screen. Otherwise, you won’t get the proper icon.
  • This works on a large number of devices, but you may experience flickering and slower performance than you would see in a native app.
  • The “Back” button does not work on all versions of iOS7. This is a known issue which Apple has ignored for 10 months now. I recommend using Greg’s app if you have an iPhone.

How can I share the app?

If your phone has a QR Reader App, you can simply point it at the graphic below and you’ll be taken to the appropriate website:

    So does this mean that when/if SOE makes changes to the official line up, the EQ2Wire app will also update?

    MINOR feedback from me is that the Page title is still for soe live 2013. When I set a bookmark it uses that as the name.

    I just renamed the bookmark, but raised it in case some tech challenged users become confused. ;-)
    Nice app.

      Could be cached. With a site that works offline like ours, it’s sometimes pretty hard to convince your device to let go of the old stuff and snag the new. Plus, if you happened to bookmark it last year, it won’t update the name of the bookmark because that’s now saved within your bookmark. You could have called it Fred and it would stay called Fred.

      See ya in Vegas!
