Wandering around a massive convention center looking for the right speaker or booth is enough to drive anyone crazy. But instead of struggling with a paper map and an inaccurate itinerary, download the free Conventionist iPhone app and be on your way.

The app provides an electronic guide for all major current and upcoming conventions nationwide. Select the convention and browse the master event list, and then select the events or speakers that you want to attend and add them to your personal calendar. You can also add an alert to each event, providing you with a 15- or 30-minute reminder.

Another feature allows you to search the convention’s key events, such as the Friday night entertainment. In addition, the app provides a thorough list of exhibitors, making it easy to hunt down a specific product or service.

One of the most useful aspects of the Conventionist app is the map feature. There is a master map, as well as several more detailed maps. And there are maps of all the booths, so you don’t have to waste time browsing things that don’t interest you.

Most importantly, the app automatically notes any changes in time and location. So you don’t have to worry about being half an hour late, or walking a half mile to the wrong ballroom.
