[prMac.com] O'Fallon, Missouri - The first iPad app to include intuitive tools that help meeting leaders plan, conduct and document effective meetings has gotten even better. Creative App Design is announcing a major update of the premier effective meeting app, MyMeetingPro HD. The new update builds on the user friendly, comprehensive look and feel of the original MyMeetingPro (MMP) with many new advanced features.
Major new features include additional currencies, meeting navigation, calendar integration, improved virtual flip-chart tools and improved options for meeting & note modification. Whether the user is the facilitator/leader, time-keeper and/or note-taker, MMP helps any participant conduct effective meetings.
Jerry Newman, one of the co-designers of the MyMeetingPro suite of apps and President of Creative App Design says, "We have found that CEOs, company presidents and business owners love the design and functionality of the original MyMeetingPro HD. These leaders understand that running effective meetings can save considerable time and unlock the power of collaboration within their organizations. MMP can power highly desired teamwork by making meetings more pleasurable and effective for all involved."
Dale Perryman, co-designer of the MyMeetingPro suite of apps and Principal in the Center for Organizational Learning says, "MMP HD 2.0 is designed by meeting facilitators for meeting leaders. We designed a product that we want to use. Trainers will find that the methodology used in MMP is consistent with 'best-in-class' effective meeting principles. We designed features for a wide spectrum of users including those who want to organize, conduct and document meetings or those who just want to plan and organize their notes for meetings. I am very pleased that the introduction of MyMeetingPro HD 2.0 has moved our flagship app from a very good effective meeting tool to a truly great weapon in the fight to eradicate ineffective, inefficient meetings. There should no longer be any excuses for running a bad meeting. Join us in our fight to eliminate bad meetings."
This release of MyMeetingPro HD marks the transition to full internal design and development of all Creative App Design tablet apps. Mike Newman, Chief Programmer for Creative App Design and MMP HD 2.0 says, "Including users' most often requested features while keeping the well-accepted look and feel of the original app was the key to this comprehensive ground up redesign."
