A new iPhone app aims to bring TechBreakfast to the palm of your hand — everything but the coffee, pastries and talks, that is.
The app, which hit the App Store last week, lets users browse a calendar of TechBreakfast events in Baltimore, New York, Northern Virginia and all the way out to Silicon Valley. You can also read up on presenters at past events.
Founder Ron Schmelzer made reference to the colored networking stickers (until Tuesday’s Baltimore TechBreakfast at the Emerging Technology Centers, the events used bracelets).
“These little dots, what we’re doing … imagine how they would look in an app,” he said.
The app currently allows users to RSVP via Meetup, access a map and directions to the TechBreakfast location of their choice and access Twitter pages, websites and other information about presenting startups, much like the agenda sheets passed out at Schmelzer’s monthly events.
“I was able to go the whole morning without referring to the sheet,” said Greg Winton, who worked on the app as a developer.
An Android release on the Google Play store is forthcoming, Schmelzer said.-30-
