Q: What is in the Overview page visible ?

A: t’s not easy to get the overview on a conference with many sessions, tracks, schedule, interests …

The Overview page will help you.  This page is always created dynamically on-the-fly.

Vertical you see the timescale with markers every 30 minutes

Horizontally you see the columns for each room

Every session has exactly the height calculated from duration – so you easy see free slots

In the Top-Left corner you see the selected conference day

The overview only displays what you have selected in your list: if only favorites are selected – the overview only shows favorites per ex.

In most cases it’s easier to see the content from Overview in landscape format. You can use your fingers to zoom-in or zoom-out

You can tap on a session to see the details


Q: Why should I connect a notebook to the conference app ?

A: BlackBerry 10 comes pre-installed with the Remember APP, where you can create notebooks. The best thing: you can connect Remember with Evernote and sync your notes with your desktop.

Notebooks not only store text – you can add audio, images, video, attachments.

Remember is integrated into BlackBerry Jam Asia Conference App: you can add notes to every session you’re attending.
