SXSW® GO is the official mobile app for getting the most out of attending SXSW 2015. The app allows you to browse the lineup and create your own personal schedule then sync it with your mobile device, always keeping your info up-to-date. The mobile app from SXSW is also providing social features to its users, enabling them to find their friends and connections among thousands of other SXSW attendees.
A new version of SXSW® GO, the official mobile app of SXSW 2015, was released today with many new features including Attendee Matching, Around Me and SessionLive.
Attendee Matching is intelligent networking that leverages the SXsocial registrant directory to recommend other attendees you may want to meet with while attending SXSW. Around Me shows you what venues are around you, what’s happening at each venue and which of your SXSocial contacts are nearby. With SessionLive you can join a session discussion with other attendees and participate in real-time audience polls. For 2015, this feature has been expanded to include more sessions.
SXSW GO compares tags to build a recommendation list for easy favoriting or a quick way to introduce yourself with a direct message or email. You can also click on individual tags to refine your search more. This latest feature is one of many added to SXSW GO to make navigating the event and networking easier than ever. SXSW GO, presented by Showtime, is now available on the iPhone, iPad and Android. Learn more at sxsw.com/mobile.
