Hey Rally Attendees!

Anyone have a Smart Phone or Internet connected tablet or other mobile device? Want to make it work smart for you at the Rally?

On your Smart Phone, launch the web browser. Then go to this web page: m.heartlandowners.org (http://m.heartlandowners.org)

Let the page load fully until it has a menu structure. Then bookmark it. I bookmarked mine on the homepage of my iPhone. Now I just press an icon from the screen.

We are only 1/3 the way done with it but I am driving all day tomorrow and won't be online much and I just couldn't hold this in any longer :)

Tonight (3-June), just the Main Menu Page and Pre-Rally Page have content.

My hope is over the next couple days, the Rally Page gets loaded as well as a Rally Documents page. We'll also look at making the typeface larger. On my developers Android, it's tiny and on my iPhone 5, it's tiny. But, it looks and works great zoomed, for now.

24622 24623

That's about it - just something simple but maybe useful. If you're out and about at the venue or in town and want to know what's coming up, just punch it up easily from your mobile device.

I typed up the pages (copy/paste from the full-sized documents really) and forum technical moderator, Michael Kidd (linuxkidd) did the coding in jquery.

That is all.... :)

Our developer worked up a couple more screens for us last night.

We now have pages for AGENDA,

24634 24635 24636

Coming soon are SEMINAR and LTA (Leisure Time Activities Presentations) schedules.

Aside from typo corrections and last minute schedule changes, the "Mobile" Rally Website is complete.

Today, LTA and Seminar schedules were added. Then, a last minute add-in - POIs. POI is Point of Interest. On the mobile site, for the most part, these are Google Map links. For example, when you select the POI - Walmart, a Google map will appear with area Walmarts located on it.

POI Screen:
24639

Click here (//heartlandowners.org/rally/2013/mobile_rally_site.pdf) to download a 2-page "Mobile" Rally Website document that shows all the screens and provides a few tips.

Click here (http://m.heartlandowners.org) from any device to go to the Mobile Rally Website.

Thanks everyone. It's our first effort at a Mobile Site for a rally. Heartland, the factory does a fair amount of mobile site coding for the factory website, but they didn't do the rally mobile site.

Hope people find it useful.

Tom, we had Nelly Muffins this morning.
Sorry, I had no choice but to eat your share.
See you soon.

Peace
