Comic-Con International Offers Free iPhone App

Comic-Con iPhone App

As announced through their official Twitter account, Comic-Con International has released a free iPhone app. As /Film explains:

It basically provides all the information you would normally find in the official Comic-Con International program book, including maps of the halls and exhibit floor, program schedules, and a news feed without having to lug around that heavy program. Plus the programing line-up and exhibitor listing is easily searchable, and the maps are multi-touch zoomable (of course).

The application is available on iTunes.

In addition, iGoogle will be sponsoring free WiFi for SDCC.

    Unfortunately, they should have made this for more then just the IPhone/ITouch platform. Android, Blackberry and WM users are left out in the cold.

    A mobile accessable version should be planned in the future.

      I expect they will see the need to expand on this in the future. They say this one was originally intended to just be a countdown clock, but that the developer took it further.

    And this is superior to publishing a PDF that would be viewable by 10 times as many people on dozens of different platforms? The maps would still be zoomable, the schedule would still be searchable.
