Chicon 7 Mobile Support - Introduction

Chicon 7 has partnered with Viafo to present the convention schedule in an online application for handheld devices. The app is available for iPhone, iPad, and Android phones and tablets through the iTunes App Store and Google Play.

Accessing the App

If you have a suitable device, you can download the app as follows.

For more information, please read our Frequently Asked Questions page.

For those who don't have a suitable Android or Apple device, Finnish fan Eemeli Aro has also developed a browser-based version of the program guide. This is an unofficial piece of software, but we think it's a great idea and recommend it to those who want a fast way to browse the program on mobile devices.


The Chicon 7 app is an enhanced version of the software that was previously used for Renovation, the 2011 Worldcon. Functionality includes:

A key improvement from Renovation is that the app now comes with an integrated version of the program database, enabling it to be used offline. The app can be re-synchronised with the convention's central database under user control to provide the latest version of the information.
