This year, we're again being supported by some awesome developers, who have been working hard on coding re:publica apps. Today, we'd like to present those #rpTEN iOS and Android apps.
Thanks to the great work done by OpenDataCity (ODC) for their re:data interface, the app developers can pull all re:publica conference raw data that we provide in JSON format. Technical details can be found here. Several developers have again snapped up this #rpTEN data and created really useful iOS and Android apps for all re:publica attendees. Give them a try and see which one is best for you:
re:publica - #rpTEN is developed by Thomas 'toto' Kollbach. The app is available in German and English and is optimised for iPads as well. Particularly useful: it can link to your Apple Watch, so you can access all important information straight from your wrist. Offline available data ensures that you won't miss any talks due to (the occasional) flaky Wi-Fi. Favourites and special memories can be configured via iCloud. Videos and conference live-streams can also be viewed in the app.
re:publica App: iOS 9.0 + for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch.
re:publica 2016 is Heiko Wichmann's app. The app is a session planner and guide for re:publica 2016. It provides an overview of all speakers, their sessions, bios and social media contact details. The sessions can also be listed or viewed as an overall schedule. The favourites function allows you to create your own, personalised schedule and the floor plan of the entire STATION Berlin can also be viewed there. After syncing the data, the app can be used in complete offline mode.

re:publica - #rpTEN is another Thomas 'toto' Kollbach developed app, which allows you to bring re:publica TEN directly into your house and onto your TV. Sessions can be viewed via live-stream and video recordings – prerequisite is that you own a fourth generation Apple TV unit. Favourites and time codes are synced via iCloud with the iOS app. Searching for "rpTEN" in the TV App Store brings up the tvOS app.
re:publica 16 was developed by Alexander Graesel (AxxG). The app provides you with information on the event programme and speakers. Furthermore, it contains extra infos on the conference, including parking spaces, news, opening hours and public transport information. The app also integrates YouTube, Twitter and flickr clients and information is updated every 30 minutes.
re:publica 16, available for Android 4.0.3 +, 13.0 MB.
re:publica TEN, developed by computer science student Hannes Küttner (link: http://hanneskuettner.com ), is a dual-lingual app and offers the most up-to-date information on all sessions and speakers. It allows the creation of a simple and easily viewable schedule to plan out your days at re:publica. It can also be synced to your Google Calender. Looking to meet new contacts at re:publica? Connect the app to your XING and LinkedIn profiles to easily get in touch with other conference participants (requires Android apps on both ends).
re:publica TEN: Android 4.0.3 +, 2.6 MB.
The Webapp by Alexander Graesel (Conference Guide) offers a clear oversight of the session plan with various filters and modes. Along with the floor plan, the app displays information from Flickr, YouTube and Twitter. The Webapp and the Android app both use the same voting system, which open for 24 hours following each session. The Webapp is optimised for the Google Chrome Browser.
rpTEN Web App by frontend developer Sandra Wiegard is an elegant alternative if you don't want to download an app including the data. Since the app is browser based, it can be started in every web browser. It lists all sessions in a timeline. Click on a title and it expands to its info; click on the heart-shaped icon on the left side to compile your favourite sessions as a planner and you can always return to it after a reload. It comes handy in case the network at STATION-Berlin should experience small difficulties...
rpTEN Web App: All systems and browsers, no download required.
