This plugin takes the data stored in The Conference Plugin and auto-builds a Sencha Touch mobile app for use on smart phones such as the iPhone, Android and Blackberry Torch. The app also works in WebKit browsers such as Safari and Chrome.

The plugin is built with lots of hooks, making it possible to build additional add-on plugins to customize the app, all without having to hack into the original code. Using a settings page, with the ability to override settings on a conference-by-conference basis, you can specify the Twitter hashtag for your event, and coordinates for a Google Map.

You can also turn on/off the “Cache Manifest” which enables the app to work offline. When you have Cache-Manifest enabled, all of the data for the conference is downloaded to the users phone when they visit the page. This includes all of the speaker photos and bios. It means that the user will be able to view the app, even if their phone is in Airplane mode.

Note: This plugin requires The Conference Plugin to be installed and activated on your WordPress installation. All of the data that the app uses is managed using The Conference Plugin.
