2011 was our first year having an official Dragon*Con mobile app, and it was a great hit with y’all. But there’s always room for improvement! We heard your feedback, recorded your input, and we’re confident this year’s app will be even better, stronger, and faster. We have the technology. (Can you hear the bionic FX yet?)
For 2012, in addition to the iPhone and Android versions, we’ll introduce a native tablet version for the iPad. There will also be improvements to the Android app, including push updates, with enhanced features and functionality. Plus, we’re updating the mobile Web O/S site for Blackberry and Windows devices. (Sorry, but we won’t have a native Windows version of the app this year. It’s on the table for 2013 and Windows 8, though!)
- Tap on a convention location to see what programming is and will be happening there as well as in nearby rooms.
- Guest mini-bios at your fingertips.
- And a slew of tweaks, fixes, and upgrades.
We’re excited. Hope you are too!
Before y’all ask, we don’t have an ETA for when to expect it yet. Stay tuned for news and updates or follow @daily_dragon on Twitter.
