CNN & Time Launch App For Political Conventions

The Republican National Convention kicks off on August 27th in Tampa, Florida, followed by the Democratic National Convention which will take place on September 3rd in Charlotte, North Carolina. To prepare for these political events, CNN and Time has launched the “Convention Floor Pass” app for attendees and non-attendees to keep up on the happenings.

The app, created by Carnival Labs Limited, will feature news reports from the showroom floor with content like CNN-TIME polls, and photos and videos. It also has logistically details with schedules and maps to help event attendees find their way.

The free app is available for iOS and Android devices. Both include social media integration with Twitter and Foursquare, so that users can share their thoughts on the party and their whereabouts.
