National convention app now available

The 2013 version of The American Legion National Convention mobile app is now available online. The app, available for Android, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, is the best way to keep up with all the activities happening at The American Legion 95th National Convention in Houston.

The iPhone/iPad version includes an updated schedule/agenda section, which allows you to quickly search by keyword or date, as well as an updated city guide that lists hotels, restaurants, entertainment, shopping and local Legion posts. It also includes the locations’ addresses, phone numbers and websites, if available.

The Android version does not have those upgrades but does use the official visitors’ guide for the city of Houston’s website to power the city guide, which includes a lot of local information.

Those who download the app are urged to allow push notifications so that they will receive important updates regarding the 2013 national convention. And if you can’t make it to convention this year, use the app to check out news, photos and video feeds to keep you in the know, even when you’re on the move.
