Google I/O goes mobile

MAY 03, 2011

By Roman Nurik, Android Developer Advocate

The Google I/O mobile app for Android is back for 2011 and looking better than ever before. We’ve added some new features to make it easier for you to connect with the I/O session content on the go, even if you don’t have a ticket into Moscone Center.

For the 2011 edition we redesigned the app to support Android tablets, taking advantage of the extra screen space to offer a realtime activity stream for Google I/O as well as a tablet optimized layout. For the first time, you’ll be able to stay up to date with I/O as it happens, regardless of whether you’re using your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Our most popular features from last year are making a comeback for the Google I/O 2011 mobile app as well. Browse through session content and schedules, orient yourself with a map, check out the Sandbox, and take notes to get the most out of your experience at the conference.

Speaking of Android, please remember that if you have an old, unlocked Android device, you’ll be able to donate it at the Android for Good booth at I/O to support NGOs and educational institutions in developing countries.

Get the Google I/O 2011 mobile app today by scanning the QR code above or by visiting this link from your computer or your Android device.
