App helps you stay connected to RNC events



rnc..jpgIt's a day late, but the Republican National Convention is kicking into high gear. If you want to be more connected with the all goings-on, check out the 2012 RNC app from AT&T. The free app is designed for delegates attending the conventions as well as others who just want to be involved.

Among the key features:

  • Live video stream from the convention
  • social media integration (Facebook, Twitter, Google+) so users can sync their accounts and post from the app
  • Stats
  • Downloading photos and streaming live videos of all speakers in real-time
  • An archive of convention-related blog posts and press releases.
  • A "favorites" feature, which allows users to bookmark their favorite photos and videos to create a sort of virtual scrapbook of their convention experience.
  • A local guide to dining and other attractions in the areas, plus maps of and directions to all the convention venues
  • Functioning on Apple iOS and Android operating systems, along with a mobile web version.
