And Wizard World said, “Let there me app!”…at Chicago Comic Con
This is that official press release that makes you go whoa. With Chicago Comic Con a mere days away, Wizard World has finally unleashed the ultimate tool in order to best experience all that Comic Con has to offer. The Official Wizard World Comic Con App boasts the ability to bridge attendees with all the information they need to fully unlock the ultimate experience at this year's Chicago Comic Con. The free app is available for smartphones running on iOS or Android, in the App Store (Apple) and Google Play.
To hit on the nitty gritty from the peeps behind the app:
The Official Wizard World Comic Con App serves as a robust event guide for convention attendees, as well as a way for fans to connect with each other and learn about what's new with Wizard World year round. Some of the standout features include:
- Event schedule, with days, times and details of programming, photo ops, VIP events and more. Attendees can mark their favorites and share with friends on Facebook and Twitter
- Push notifications of programming updates and contests
- Celebrity and artist profiles
- Convention Map
- Handy ticketing function for upgrades and upcoming events
- Exhibitor specials and profiles
- Photos and videos updated from the show floor
- News and info from Wizard World's Twitter, Facebook and Blogs
Features will be added as the app grows, and fans are encouraged to let Wizard World know which they enjoy most and which new ones would be helpful.
“The app is a great way for attendees to keep up with all the fun activities going on at Wizard World shows and to be a part of our shows year round,” said John Macaluso, Wizard World CEO. “We think it's a good start and we look forward to feedback from attendees and other fans as to how to make it serve them even better.”
Yup. It's pretty neat-o. And, I plan on totally laying down the law with this app while walking the aisles at this year's show in Chicago. If you see us there, stop by and say hi. We will be the folks harassing Kevin Sorbo on how a demi-god couldn't function in an agrarian society in the manner that his show portrayed.
