We always emphasize how important social networks are during San Diego Comic-Con: it's a way to stay connected, to know when your favorite booth is making random drops of candy and much more. But outside of social networks like Twitter and Facebook, there are some mobile apps that can make your life a lot easier during the SDCC. So let's take a look.
1. The Official Comic-Con International App.
If you have not downloaded this yet, Really should. It's not the best technologically advanced application you've seen, but it's light years ahead of where it was, and it's incredibly useful. You have the schedule for the five days, and you can search for it, click to read the full descriptions of the panel, and more. In addition, there is a list of exhibitors (which when clicked, shows you exactly where they are on the floor map), maps, some details about remote sites and more.
2. Compass Cloud – The application of the metropolitan transit system
We wrote about this very useful application last week, but if you plan to use the San Diego streetcar system to get around, this is the way to do it. The MTS not only offers discounts for attendees during the Comic-Con ($ 5 unlimited use for a day), but also has a map of all the stops and information in real time.
If you go somewhere that is not on the Comic-Con transport or trolleybus route, there is also UBER. They will take you practically anywhere you want to go, give you the price in advance (which is usually much cheaper than a taxi). This is also an excellent way to get to the Comic-Con Museum, as there will be NO transportation service this year.
