The PhUSE Android Application is developed by Katja Glaß on behalf of PhUSE. The application is available to support the conference by providing information about the presentations by day and by section as well as providing the corresponding room maps. Furthermore the Twitter functionality can be used directly to display the “#PhUSE13” messages as well as logging in and tweeting.

The application can be found in the Google Play store when searching for "phuse 2013" or by following the link.


The application provides the following major functionality:

  • Display presentations by day
  • Display presentations by section
  • Display presentation details containing abstracts
  • Display room maps
  • Display twitter messages for “PhUSE13”
  • Ability to log into twitter and tweet

This application is similar to the available iPod application, but not all functionality is currently included.

Application Data Storage

The application stores the complete paper and presentation information as available for the PhUSE conference. Furthermore login-tokens for the twitter account are stored, when the user logged into Twitter. The application stores the login tokens provided by “OAuth” on the device where the application is installed. OAuth is used by twitter as authentication tool. The twitter messages which are received and send are not stored, but directly read or send from and to twitter for processing.
