If you are attending ABA Techshow in Chicago next week, be sure to download the Techshow app for your mobile phone. It is available for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry.

The app includes a number of features. Among them:

  • The Techshow schedule. View the full schedule or see events by day, topic or speaker. It even includes a “Happening Now” feature for those of us who never plan ahead.
  • A Techshow scheduler. As you review the schedule and find programs you want to attend, bookmark them and they are added to your personal schedule.
  • The list of exhibitors, with their booth numbers and contact information.
  • The all-important guide to Techshow social events.
  • The #abatechshow Twitter feed and the ability to Tweet directly from the app (with the hashtag automatically entered!).

If you preregistered to attend Techshow, you will have received a code to enter in the app. The code gives you full access to the app’s features. Without it, some features are limited.
