Roomr–Quickly find free meeting rooms

At my office, I often find myself looking for a free meeting room so that I can hold an impromptu meeting to discuss an issue. Since our office is spread across two floors, this does involve going up and down stairs, hunting for an empty room.

We use MS Exchange for booking meeting rooms, so I wrote a simple iOS app that will give you the availability of meeting rooms within Exchange. I call it Roomr. It’s currently awaiting review in the AppStore, so if you’d like to be notified when it’s ready, please drop me an email – tomas@tomasmcguinness.com

I’ve got a list of additional features that I’d like to add over time, such as the ability to download the rooms description from LDAP (information about the room’s capacity) and the ability to quickly book a room for a short meeting.

It will work with Exchange 2007 and 2010 and with some effort, Office 365. Support for Office 365 will improve once I add the ability to perform Auto-Discovery.

If you like the app, or at least the idea of the app, please leave me a comment or drop me an email!
