Gear up, GOP'ers, the Republican National Convention is only ten days away, and the organizers of the event want to give attendees as well as those following it across the country a leg up.
With that in mind, the RNC has paired with the Tampa Hosting Committee to release the official Republican National Convention mobile app, "Tampa 2012."
For everyone watching the Convention events from afar, The Tampa 2012 app will feature live convention coverage, as well as the ability for users to participate via social media. The app also contains weather & transit information and maps for those who will be attending.
And everyone who downloads the app will be among the first group of people to see the official convention schedule when it comes out. You'll get the schedule for August 27th a week in advance, the schedule for August 28th the next day, and so on and so forth.
"We are excited to provide an integrated mobile application for this year's 2012 Republican National Convention," said Host Committee President and CEO Ken Jones. "Four years ago, at the last convention, iPhones and other smart phones were just making their debut and mobile apps were in their infancy. Now, these devices are everywhere and we have the fantastic opportunity to provide our guests and the public who are interested in the convention with a mobile application that is cutting-edge, easy-to-use and fun. More importantly, it provides users the chance to learn about the Tampa Bay region and all it has to offer."
The app is available for free on iOS and Android, as well as on Facebook.
