SBL/AAR Annual Meeting App

The SBL/AAR Annual Meeting App for iphone/Ipads is now available on Apple’s AppStore (for free).

It has not been announced on the SBL or AAR website yet, and I am not sure if it is quite finished yet. Mine froze at least once when being tested, and I could not find out how to associate events with the calendar.

As long as that doesn’t work, the app is rather useless, IMHO.
