SXSW GO is an iPad and iPhone app that serves as the official mobile guide to South by Southwest 2013. South by Southwest is an annual music, film, and interactive festival that takes place her in my lovely hometown of Austin in March.
This year’s SXSW Interactive kicks off this Friday, March 8. I’m always excited when SXSW Interactive is going on, because it gives me chance to meetup with some online friends who visit the festival. This year is the first time that I’ve got an official press pass – so I’m going to be able to take in much more of the Interactive festival.
The SXSW GO app has already proved to be an essential for me. SXSW Interactive has grown tremendously and each day there’s so much going on – this app has helped me get to grips with what’s going on where each day and which events I most want to check out.
Here’s some of what the app offers:
Build your schedule online at schedule.sxsw.com or directly on your mobile device. With SXSW® GO, you also can sync your online schedule with your mobile device, so your info will always be up-to-date!
