This app is designed for to be used in conjunction with HTT Conference Messenger (see “More Apps in the left hand column). It is written to run on an iPad and is used by the speaker at a conference to receive messages sent by delegates running the HTT Conference Messenger app on their smart phones. Up to 250 delegates can connect to a single router and send messages to the iPad running this app and connected to the same router.
The speaker at the conference would download the app onto their iPad. They would then connect to a WiFi router connected to a computer on the stage. The speaker can then receive text messages sent 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 iPad 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.
