Apple’s WWDC Gets Its Own App with Session VideosBy: Josh Wolford - June 3, 2013
Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference kicks off in exactly one week from today, and Apple has just released a new app that not only helps those who are attending the event but also provides content for those who can’t make it.
For all registered Apple developers, the new WWDC app will provide free streaming session videos. They will also be available on the web.
Here’s what Apple’s offering attendees with the new app:
- Browse times, locations, and descriptions for sessions, labs, and special events
- Mark schedule items as favorites with a simple double-tap
- Watch session videos, available daily
- Start watching on one iOS device, and pick up where you left off on another
- Keep up with the latest news, get important notifications, and see daily snapshots
- View maps to find your way around Moscone West
- Provide feedback on session content and speakers within the session details view
- Add your attendee information to Passbook for speedier on-site registration
WWDC begins on June 10th and will run through June 14th. Apple is set to reveal “the future of iOS and OS X” and possibly a new internet radio service.
“We look forward to gathering at WWDC 2013 with the incredible community of iOS and OS X developers,” said Apple’s SVP of Worldwide Marketing Philip Schiller. “Our developers have had the most prolific and profitable year ever, and we’re excited to show them the latest advances in software technologies and developer tools to help them create innovative new apps. We can’t wait to get new versions of iOS and OS X into their hands at WWDC.”
