“Family Search Mobile Apps”

Todd Powell

Categories: LDS, S

Talk Abstract:
This presentation will demonstrate current and future features of the FamilySearch Mobile suite of applications. More and more people are using smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices, so FamilySearch engineers are working on applications (apps) to work with it. But even if you don’t own a mobile device, you can learn how this ties in with the computers you are using. His presentation will also show us a road map of things they are working on and will share some unique mobile user stories. He will have a Q&A session during the class period following his main presentation.
