I am going to post this here but any discussion should probably go on on the WEB400 list:

I put together a mobile web application that uses the Common Conference Schedule on the web as a data source and then presents the schedule in a daily format on the phone. It is a WEB application so it currently requires an Internet connection but I am already using the offline storage capabilities in HTML5 (yeah, you gotta have an HTML5 capable browser) so I am going to try to get some "Internet awareness" built in so it pulls in updates IF an Internet connection is available. Currently the whole schedule is stored locally (in anticipation of an "offline mode") . It stores your schedule in local storage as well.

It is using jQuery Mobile which is Alpha code so I have noticed a few weirdnesses in the app. I am going to tweak it between Common Board meetings today so if you have suggestions I'd like to hear them. I'd love to do an Android native app but all I have at the moment is a PhoneGap application. I would need a Mac in order to compile the code for iPhone and then I'd have to get through the appStore juggernaut to get it available so a mobile *web* application is all you have.

Post suggestions to WEB400 or to me directly if you want. I only posted here in case someone on the list is in Minneapolis and wants to try to actually use the app while at Common.

You can find the app here: http://opensourceoni.com/schedule/GetWeb?action=HTML5
