Will there be a guidebook app available for 2014? I found it incredibly handy last year and I am looking forward to hopefully using it again this year.

Using this thread instead of starting a new one; is there any estimate on when the Guidebook might be ready to download?

I am really looking forward to this app. It was nice and helpful at con so I didn't have to keep pulling out the program book (which also was super helpful) Also, being able to plan my day helped me enjoy the con a lot more. I wasn't running all over like a chicken with my head cut off. And I didn't overlap things too!

Seriously....really love this app.

Can't wait for this to drop. I have used it whenever there is one available for a con I go to. As others hav said it makes life so much easier around a convention, especially one as large as ACen.

The Guidebook app contains ALL of the programming for the weekend, so yes.

Is there a link to the guidebook pages for people without smartphones? The guidebook app can't be downloaded unless you have a smartphone. Last year someone posted links to the ACen guidebook pages, which could be accessed with a regular web browser.

The photoshoot schedule here on the forum says the Zelda photoshoot is on Saturday at 11:30 am, but the Guidebook app says it's on Friday at 6:30 pm? Which one is correct? I don't wanna miss taking pictures.

A friend and I are trying to figure out this "connections" stuff. I only see 3 people under social->connect, and have no connections. Can someone post on how to connect with your friends through the app, and what that accomplishes? Can we share personal schedules through Guidebook, for example?

Thanks.

The mobile web version is so limited though with the inability to create a schedule.

I've got a tournament running for Yu-Gi-Oh! at 7pm on Saturday in the London Room (Hyatt). Are card gaming schedules not part of the Guidebook? Who would I contact to get these in (if allowed)? Don't see the other card game tournaments either (Weiss Schwarz same day & time, across the hall).

I know that sometimes the guidebook isn't up to date last minute because some panels goes from one location to another. Will those updates be reflected as well from the book manual?

As far as I understand it, schedule changes will be pushed to Guidebook throughout the weekend as they occur. So the app should be the most up to date version of the schedule.
