It's been very easy to work with the staff at Core Apps and the app itself was easy to use.

Pros: I like the app's ease of use. It's very intuitive. I also like the fact that it's easy to host multiple events in the same app.

Cons: It could be that we just don't know how, but I'd like it to have it better integrated with the exhibit hall mapping system.

Thank you for your feedback David, please contact us so we can discuss your data integration and mapping needs, as that is an area in which we are very strong in so should be able to provide additional guidance.

Exactly what we needed.

Pros: Functionality of the mobile app and even within that the amount of customization. The single best feature for us was the ability to save schedules and share with friends.

Cons: Difficult to import conference data from the planning side. There should be a way to use event ids to upload in batch to the software.

Pros: The software is so easy to use. Anyone can pick it up and instantly be able to find what they are looking for without a lot of learning curve.

Cons: It is so easy, show managers have a tendency to put too much on the dashboard thus, making everything harder to locate instead of easier.

Pros: Easy to navigate, easy to send out reminders to people about events happening at the conference. Helps that once the app is downloaded, it can be used each year at a difference conference without reloading.

Cons: Some people had a little difficulty finding the workshop evaluations. We will provide printed directions for next year's conference.

Pros: It fits our needs, is easy to setup and keeps our attendees engaged. This is the perfect app for our biennial conference.

Cons: We have not discovered any cons to the software yet. You do have to create quite a few different graphics to fit the different platforms, which can be time consuming.

Pros: CoreApps mobile app is cost effective. The sales rep and account reps we are assigned are always professional and available by phone, email or text at anytime, especially during a meeting --- when I need them most!

Cons: Obviously, we always want what we get for less money and for our money to go farther. More add-ons for no more cost.

Pros: The application allowed our team to make it feel like the app was built JUST FOR US. The tools made it easy in insert content and schedule. The ability to export data and work offline gave use the functionality we needed for our entire team to work on areas like the schedule.

ADDED BONUS: Our attendees loved the app and even though we were hesitant of the social side of it at first the attendees loved it.

Cons: We love most everything about the app, can't wait to see what you add next! Out only suggestion was more customizing of the map application to allow for odd sized rooms.

Pros: Being able to manage speaker confirmation, uploading of bios, photos and presentations and agenda to the app

Cons: The software isn't a problem, I would say that support staff do not always communicate adequately and make errors. They also seem to have a high degree of turnover so you start with one person and get transferred to someone else to complete.

Overall: Time saving and providing conference attendees with a way to manage the conference

Pros: There are adequate customization options, like colors, icons, and layout. Being able to choose a background image and custom icons is also a plus.

Cons: Having to send app updates and content changes to a Core App team member who then had to update the app wasn't always the most efficient way to handle changes and was somewhat time-consuming. I'd like the ability to update certain content myself rather than having to go through someone else.

Pros: In 2014, our other vendor broke the app with their bad info and the core-apps team worked hard to make our app work correctly the way we wanted. We see new features in the app probably every year.

Cons: The person in charge of the app the past two years screwed up the same thing both years. The rep this year was not very responsive or knowledgeable. We seem to get a new rep every year now. The app still has a lot of bugs in it on Androids. Our attendees have trouble figuring out how to do simple things because there aren't any directions they can follow. We had a couple years with improved ratings on our sessions and this year that just disappeared and by the time we can see that part of the app, it's really too late to fix it.

Overall: We find the app very useful at our conferences. A lot of people use it and never look at our printed schedule. We also like the web version for those without smartphones.

Feature-rich mobile app with great customer support backing it up.

Pros: Our mobile app has a professional look and is full of features our meeting attendees value. The development team had a positive attitude towards our customization requests, and a real interest in seeing us succeed.

Cons: Our meeting is not revenue focused, so many of the features related to exhibitors and sponsors are not relevant to us. That being said, the development team was very helpful in removing those elements and making the app feel like it was made for our meeting.

Pros: Ease of use, flexibility, ability to completely customize the product to fit our needs. This team was willing to go the extra mile in customizations. They allowed us to use the product in ways it had never been used.

Cons: Reporting could be enhanced by creating additional functions within the product. Reporting seems to be limited, however this is also an area I need to explore more with additional features that will be utilized in upcoming events.

Overall: This software eliminated many of our attendees worries from previous app experiences. We had the benefit of completely customizing the software to meet the needs of our event.

Pros: Very stable, very configurable. Handles complex integrations well and allows for inevitable inconsistencies in source data.

Cons: Could improve metrics portal, but we understand that desired metrics are a moving target...
Admin areas could also use some improvement.

Overall: Able to solve complex event structure issues while delivery exemplary customer service to our event organizer clients. Always feel that Core-apps has our backs and that any challenge can be mastered - or at least, dealt with.

Pros: The end result looks good and it's fairly easy for attendees to use. It's customizable and flexible yet still streamlined. It has banner ads, push notifications, and the ability to add/delete/change buttons.

Cons: 1. It doesn't handle names with accents well. They don't alphabetize correctly and you can't search for them.
2. There's an issue with sessions that have speakers with order numbers (as opposed to a roundtable where there is no numbering). Whe searching for a speaker, the app will list the speaker's presentation order number (e.g, 1, 2, 3, or 4) first, followed by the presentation title when in all other instances it lists the session number first (e.g., 301, 47, 230B) followed by the session title. So it looks like almost everyone is speaking in session 1, 2, 3, or 4 when that is actually the order in which they are speaking in the session.
3. Each presentation is listed with the starting time of the session. So if a session starting at 1:00 pm has four presentations, they are all listed as starting at 1:00 p.m. We asked if it was possible to hide the time or move it to after the presentation title, and we were told no.

We've used Core-apps for two years and it's truly turnkey. I recommend it to peers frequently!

Pros: It's truly turnkey. I don't have to re-work my data to fit a convoluted template. The customer service we have received has been wonderful.

Cons: A feature we removed from the app last year was left on the app this year which caused some confusion for our attendees. It was resolved/removed quickly.

Overall: I don't spend days working on our event app anymore! The customer service is top notch!

Pros: Ease of use, interface, design, customer service, ability to create your own schedule, and least inexpensive of all other products I checked out!

Cons: Photo uploads needs a bit of improvement. Would love a way to download all the pics at once, when the event is over (as an administrator on the back end).

Overall: Helps us communicate with our attendees easier and got rid of the big printed convention program book!
