The USEA is introducing a useful new mobile application that will keep the most important event and membership information at your fingertips! The USEA Event Companion App will be rolling out for Android and iOS devices in the coming weeks, and I for one am pretty excited.
Have you ever had a last minute panic attack about the details of your dressage test, wanted to double check a rule in the Rulebook or the closing date in the Omnibus? While all of this information is available on USEA’s mobile website, it can be time consuming navigating the many menus and scrolling forever to find a particular event on the Omni page. With the Event Companion App, all your event details, dressage tests and even horse and rider profile data will be quickly and easily accessible.
“The USEA Event Companion was created to quickly provide important information that you need while you plan, prepare and participate at a USEA competition. While the first version of the app has its limitations, we have big plans for it,” commented Robert Winter, USEA Director of Information Systems Management.
“The USEA is supporting its on-going development, so there will be regular new features and fixes. In the near future, it will expand to support both recognized and registered events, event app notifications, deep result searches and integrations with other third-party eventing apps.”
Using the app, you’ll be able to search and sort events by name, level or distance. You can also “favorite” certain events for even faster access to its details. Favorited events can be stored offline, so you don’t have to be in network to get the information–great for those shows with no cell service to be found! Eventually, the app will be able to give push notifications for the opening and closing dates, too.
