Meet the NCCE Conference App… download now and play-n-plan this weekend!
We are just days away from the start of NCCE 2014 in Seattle and if you haven’t downloaded the NCCE Conference App yet, now is the time!
Why the conference app? It is your connection to information about the conference. As a tech-savvy teacher, you can have one-click access to the conference schedule, information about speakers and exhibitors and a means of planning your conference experience.
Start your engines!
I am showing off screenshots from my Android phone, but the app is available on all major platforms: iOS, Android and Windows Phone. The splash screen says it all… let’s get ready to go!
The Main Drag
The main screen is your key to conference information. This weekend, you should review General Information and About NCCE and learn about services available at the conference and the team working hard to put this conference together. Most of the information information is located under the (1) conference schedule and information about the (2) featured speakers and keynoters.

I noticed on the permissions for this app, it requires that you allow the app to take pictures with your phone at any time without your approval. This concerns me. Why would an app that is designed to enhance my conference experience need to use my phone to take pictures without my permission? Is there a way to block this feature and still use the app? Thanks!
Thanks for your question and comment.
That sounds a lot scarier than it really is: that permission simply means that you can take a picture with the “I <3 NCCE" function on the app without having to have the app ask you for permission each time.
You can deny that permission and the core functionality of the app will be 100% intact.
