Tried using this at Photonics West and it was a disaster. App crashed constantly, showed me talks from the wrong days and when I tried to plan where to be id arrive and find a paper note saying the conference was moved to the other side of moscone. An app is a good idea but this is so broken it's counterproductive, it just helps you miss talks. SPIE should focus on the website or paper programs instead.

The app has historically been buggy, and still appears to be so in August 2023. I cannot update my contact card information, as the save button will not highlight. If I leave that tab, all of my changes disappear. We'll see what happens during Optics and Photonics in a week.

Great looking interface. Routinely glitches out. For example: I've selected a lost of exhibitors I want to visit on my Photonics West account, they load in the browser version but this app insists they don't exist.
