ROSEMONT, Ill.-The 2013 ih+hs Mobile App for the International Home + Housewares Show is now available for download from iTunes and Google Play, according to a statement from the International Housewares Association, owner and operator of the show.

•Exhibitor listings including additional contact information
•An export function allowing visitors to export the text of all notes they add to an exhibitor’s record or an agenda appointment, and then email those notes to themselves
Show attendees can use the 2013 ih+hs app to search exhibitor booths and create a customized show floor plan of exhibitors to visit. It also allows attendees to search for information on educational events and displays, and Cooking Theater appearances, as well as locate show services.
