MIX 11 app for WP7

Anyone interested in MIX 11, Microsoft’s upcoming developer conference, should take a look at the dedicated WP7 app recently released for it.

The app, which is intended as a sort of conference companion, include maps and directions, and a timetable with session information and speaker biographies, as well as reminders for particular sessions. Of course, the app won’t display the complete schedule until the actual times are finalised, but does includes some recorded sessions from past MIX events that may be of interest.

I’m not going to MIX 11, but it’s interesting to see event-centric apps like this being created – I wonder if dedicated companion apps will soon become a regular feature at large conventions and conferences, maybe even eventually edging out brochures and such altogether.
