WWDC App Update For Next Week’s Conference

Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference, WWDC, kicks off on Monday, June 5th.  For those who are attending, there is an updated official app of the conference now in the App Store.  The update brings the full schedule of the conference including keynotes and working sessions as well as maps to help you find your way around and get curated video playlists.  It’s a solid update and is handy for those who are attending and those who won’t be making it.

The WWDC app includes a lot of information on the venue tab.  This year’s event is being held at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California and on the Venue tab you will find maps of the convention center, check-in information, Wi-Fi information and key information for attendance.

The Schedule tab is where you will find the full agenda for the event including keynotes and breakout sessions which you can tap

The new WWDC app is in the App Store now and is free.  Unlike previous years, you don’t even have to sign in with your AppleID to get to all the content.
