We always emphasize how important social media is to San Diego Comic-Con: it's a way to keep in touch, to know when your favorite booth is making random trips, and more. But aside from social media such as Twitter and Facebook, there are some mobile apps that can make your life a lot easier during SDCC. So let's take a look.
1. The official application of Comic-Con International
If you have not downloaded it yet, really should. It's not the best technologically advanced application you've ever seen, but it's a longer light-year than it was – and it's incredibly useful. It contains the five-day schedule. You can search for it, click to read the full description of the panel, etc. In addition, there is a list of exhibitors (which, when clicked, shows you exactly where they are on the map!), Maps, some details on outside sites, and more.
2. Compass Cloud – The application of metropolitan transit system
Last week we wrote about this handy app, but if you plan to use the San Diego tram system to get around, this is the way to do it. The MTS not only offers discounts to participants at Comic-Con (unlimited use of $ 5 a day), it also offers a map of all stops and real-time information.
If you go anywhere other than the Comic-Con shuttle or tram, there is also UBER. They will take you to almost anywhere you want and will tell you the price in advance (which is usually much cheaper than a taxi). It's also a great way to get to the Comic-Con Museum as there will be no shuttle this year.
