Apple Releases WWDC App - Watch Sessions from Home

Apple released a new app on the App Store called WWDC designed to give the umpteem gillion developers who can't get to the conference access to sessions and other content. Registered developers will be able to stream content from this year's conference as well as previous conferences through the app.

Apple's World Wide Developer Conference takes place from June 2nd through the 6th this year—in the past it has sold out in a few tens of seconds, and this year the company instituted a lottery system designed to eliminate the mad rush aspect of getting those tickets.

Much of the content in the app has been available through Apple's Developer Connection website, but the app offers developers a dedicated interface for accessing it through their iOS devices.

Apple's patch notes:

Make the most of the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference with the WWDC app. Even if you can’t join us in San Francisco, you can still follow along each day — session videos are just a tap away.

  • Stream videos from current and previous WWDC sessions.
  • Start watching on one iOS device, and pick up where you left off on another.
  • Browse times, locations, and descriptions for sessions, labs, and special events.
  • Mark schedule items as favorites.
  • Keep up with the latest news, get important notifications, and see daily photos.
  • View maps to find your way around Moscone West.
  • Provide feedback on content and speakers for each session.
  • Add your pass to Passbook for faster check-in at WWDC.

The app is a free download, and it's available now.
