An App Worth Drooling Over

By

This year, the Dragon*Con app for iPhone and Android is absolutely fantastically awesome. On the coolness scale, the app rocks like an airship on plutonium.

Have you installed the app on your phone yet? Because you should, you must, we cannot recommend it enough.

Want to see your favorite celebrity? Click their name in the speakers/performers list and get an instant list of their panels and events. On the coolness scale, this feature is most assuredly tweetable.

Like the look of a panel? Simply press the star and the panel will be added to your schedule. Seriously, it’s that simple. No more licking your finger to flip through the pocket program–a great way to avoid contamination and its evil cousin, con crud.

Have an appointment that’s not part of the con, like scheduled volunteer hours? The app allows you to add the appointment with all the relevant details.

Enjoyed a panel immensely? There’s a button in the app to rate the panel. You might want to rate it, because next year’s programming might be affected by reviews.

Want to share your schedule with your peeps, especially a lunch date or a late-night rendezvous? Read the how-to post on the Daily Dragon website.

Not sure how the app works? We have a detailed tutorial. Check out all our articles on these and more features of the app.
