	Don't find any Lanyrd mobile apps in the Google play store; went
	to m.lanyrd.com and indeed there's a mobile optimized website
	there but nothing to suggest it has the ability to build any
	personal schedule either.

	Most conferences I've attended (e.g., Brainshare, Adobe Max)
	had their own web-based personal scheduling tool.  Never used
	Crowdvine before Apachecon, never used Lanyrd before yesterday.
	Personal scheduling is about the only reason I'd used either
	since almost everything else is back on the main conference
