Google I/O 2012 is approaching fast, and everyone is expecting a lot from Google at their yearly developer conference. Starting with the $200 7-inch Nexus tablet to the expected announcement of the next iteration of Android, Jelly Bean, attendees are going to have a lot on their hands. Google knows this, and they have updated their Google I/O companion app to give you all the details of their conference. You can find the following information in their app:
- View detailed session, code lab, and speaker information, including speaker bios, photos, and Google+ profiles
- +1 sessions right from the app
- Participate in public #io2012 conversations on Google+
- Guide yourself using the conference map
- Get a reminder a few minutes before sessions in your schedule are due to start
- View information about companies in the Developer Sandbox
- Keep up with announcements from the I/O team during the conference
- View your schedule on your Android 3.0+ device’s home screen using an app widget
- Play back “I/O Live” session video streams on your Android 3.0+ devices
- Automatically sync sessions in your schedule to your Android 4.0 device’s calendar
- Beam session details from your Android 4.0, NFC-enabled device to another using Android Beam
The app should give attendees more than enough information on where all developer sessions are scheduled to take place. The app is available in both Phone and Tablet versions, so if you prefer to walk around with your ICS-running tablet at sessions, you will be fine.
