AP Mobile to showcase new app at SXSW Interactive
Mobile app of The Associated Press will host booth with product demos of new app, live interviews with industry professionals
AP Mobile, the award-winning mobile app from The Associated Press, will host a booth at the 2012 SXSW Interactive Conference in Austin, Texas, March 12-15. The AP Mobile team will feature demos of the new app on iPad and iPhone and will stream live interviews with industry professionals at the booth. The latest version of the app was released earlier this week.
The SXSW Interactive Conference is the ideal place for us to showcase AP Mobile, said Matt Cluney, director of marketing for the Associated Press. Were confident that the latest version of the app places it among the other heavy hitters of SXSW Interactive, and its new features are going to make it a buzz-worthy topic.
The interviews will stream live on www.getapmobile.com and other websites. The AP Mobile team will announce the interview schedule at the start of each day via the AP Mobile website, Facebook and Twitter.
AP Mobile will also host a daily contest at the SXSW booth where attendees can submit story ideas to be featured on www.getapmobile.com.
AP Mobile will be located at booth 846 in the Austin Convention Center.
