New App Brings APA Eastern Into 21st Century


The American Philosophical Association (APA) has partnered with Guidebook to make a mobile app for its Eastern Division meeting later this month. The old paper program was clearly the idea of the same sadist who invented books with endnotes; this is clearly an improvement. Download the Guidebook app for your device, enter in the redeem code from your registration email for the conference, and you’ll be able to make use of this electronic version. You can use it to build your own personalized schedule, access maps of the conference areas, access placement info, and more. Great idea, APA!

It will be particularly useful if they can get the meeting locations into the Guidebook before the meeting starts (they haven’t done it yet). Since you can only get it if you register, there’s no reason I can think of not to include the locations.Report

Am I the only person having trouble locating the program on Guidebook? I searched APA, Eastern APA, American Philosophical AssociationReport

Session locations will be added to the app shortly before the meeting.

Because the meeting guide is available only to registrants, it’s not accessible through search. To download it, you must use the redeem code provided to registrants by email. If you’ve registered but can’t find that email, contact [email protected] and we’ll provide it.Report
