Demos


Demo 1
Weever Apps (@WeeverApps) will demo the exciting new MyHamilton app that will highlight jobs, events, accommodations and transportation in downtown Hamilton.  The Hamilton Map App is the result of a partnership between The City of Hamilton, McMaster University, Columbia International College, Mohawk College and Weever Apps.

Demo 2
Apptui - The Remote Control For Your Online Life.  Apptui lets you watch, play, and surf everything on a big screen, using your smartphone as the mouse, touchpad, keyboard, custom interface or game controller.  Other apps may let you do very specific things with your PC and connected TV, and nothing else. Apptui lets you do everything, from one app, using nothing more than your phone’s browser. Put your feet up at home, and just go!  Apptui is fast, secure, and awesome.
