This app is designed for use by delegates at conferences to send text messages to speakers on the stage without the use of the internet or phone connections. Up to 250 delegates can connect to a single router.
Each delegate in the audience would download the app to their phone (or iPad). They would then connect to a WiFi router connected to an iPad on the stage (see HTT Conference Server app for the iPad software). The delegates can then use the app to send a text message to the iPad on the stage via a local area network.
The benefit over conventional text messages is:
There is no charge for the message.
The message arrives at the receiving computer in milliseconds.
The message is displayed on the computer screen allowing the person on stage to read it without opening it.
The iPad output can be displayed via a video projector to a large screen.
To run this you clearly need software (which is free) for the stage computer. This can be obtained by downloading the HTT Conference Server app in The App Store onto an iPad .
