This is a good app - IF IT WORKS ON YOUR PHONE. Don't know how but it does not work on some phones that almost everything else runs on. Their alternative is to use a web site but that is cookie based instead of log in based and looses some of the major features. Response to Socio's response: I am not running version 9. Socio sent me a screen shot from something indicating that mine was one of Samsung's phones it would not work on. Somehow other companies develop software that works on almost everything. The web based backup plan would have worked if they used a sign in system and if they integrated the same features in it. It is supposed to be a 2 way communication with the event. If you use the web version, you cannot communicate to the event at all. This IS NOT an issue because of Android 9! The phone I have is running an older version of Android that seems to support all software that doesn't need new specialty features. Socio KNOWS that whatever they are using to create the software does not support some "normal" phones because they sent me a screen shot that listed various Samsung phone models that could run the program and those that failed.

We're sorry you experienced this! We found a small issue that caused this to happen to users running the latest Android 9 version. We have since patched the issue and the problem will be resolved when you update to 3.0.53 or higher. If you continue to experience problems or if we can help in any way please email us at support@socio.events!

Disappointing. Inconvenient to see what is coming up. The whats-happening-now pane fails to show up sometimes and prioritizes the earliest events, showing you in-progress panels or events like "Registration" that are going all day. For 24h events, the schedule view always defaults to midnight and requires a bit of scrolling to see "now." Doesn't seem to allow events to cross midnight, requiring a second event to be created and showing inaccurate ending times. Understandable but disappointing.

Good app / features overall. Attended online summit with more than 1K participants. There is one MAJOR feature missing though - not allowing to listen to audio channel (during video session) when app is in the background. Give user a choice. Otherwise you cannot literally do anything else on the phone while watching the event. 4 stars until addressed.

What's new

- We want the app to be for everyone, so we made some accessibility improvements that make it for even more of everyone.
- You ever have those days where you just feel sensitive? Like, the smallest thing will put you on edge? We updated the “Shake to Connect” feature so it only reacts to motion after you tap the “Shake” button. I wish I could update those sensitive days with a little coding... Probably wouldn’t be healthy, but I’ll let the philosophers sort that one out.
