On iOS and Android devices, downloading a guide will store it directly onto a user's device. As a result, the majority of a guide's contents - including schedules, custom lists, and maps - will be available offline.
There are, however, certain Internet-only features:
- Live Polls
- Photo Album
- Linked URLs (including links to PDFs)
- RSS Feed
- Scavenger Hunt
- Social Media (Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook)
- Updates: When a device regains internet service, the guide will automatically check for updates the next time it is opened.
- Web views
- Attendance Tracking (Note: Premium feature under construction, may not be available for your guide)
- Private Messaging
Important Note: Users of the mobile web version of Guidebook (guidebook.com/browse) will require an internet connection at all times to access their guides.
Given how important connectivity is today, solid internet availability is now a must-have at most events and venues. Read our post on Event WiFi Essentials to learn more about this critical event offering.
