Maker Faire has released a World Maker Faire App for iPhone and Android for this weekend’s event in NYC.
Some highlights include the ability to drill your way through the schedule (speakers, performances, events), the venues, and the makers, looking at, for instance, all of the talks a given maker might be presenting over the weekend, or all of the presentations happening in a specific venue. Within a maker’s profile, you can also see related talks and related makers. And you can send social media alerts about events and makers. And even access their website or email them (if address is public) directly from the app!
Another handy feature is the ability to tag events and set alarms to be alerted before events. And, as you’d expect from an event app, there’s an interactive Google map and the ability to filter map features (venues, food, ATMs, etc).
