If you’re an iPhone user who loves Google, or you just like to keep up with the competition, then you’ll be pleased to know there’s now an official iPhone app for next week’s Google I/O conference.
You can use it to keep track of events, navigate your way around if you’re going to be there, and to watch the keynote and sessions live if you’ve been following from home.
Google has never turned its back on iOS users, despite creating Android, its biggest rival. Just a day after launching its awesome Gboard keyboard for iPhone and iPad — which isn’t even available on its own platform yet — it is now offering an official I/O app.
This is the first time Google has offered an I/O app for iPhone, and as an iOS user who also loves Android, I’m delighted to see it. It’s not just a watered-down version of the Android app, either; it boasts all the same great features.
If you’re going to be at Google I/O, you can use the app to track the conference agenda, and get details on each event. You can then add the ones you want to attend to your personalized schedule, and user the conference map to get to them.
If you can’t be at the conference, you can use the iPhone app to watch Google’s keynote and select developer sessions live. You can also add events to your calendar so you don’t forget to tune in.
Google I/O kicks off on May 18, and we’ll be covering it right here on Cult of Mac. You can download the app from the App Store now.
