If you want a front row seat to the 2012 political conventions, look no further than the CNN-Time Convention Floor Pass app.
This app features breaking news updates and alerts, daily analysis and commentary, exclusive early access to CNN-TIME polls, as well as photos and videos from CNN and TIME journalists who are attending the Republican and Democratic National Conventions.
Once the app is downloaded, users must select a state before they continue on to the content inside of the app. Then they are presented with various tabs to choose from – including a news feed, access to a multimedia library of convention speeches, an event guide and a social section with relevant Twitter posts that can be filtered based on the user’s interests.
The Convention Floor Pass app is also very interactive, enabling users who are attending or around the conventions to send CNN photos and videos of the political action. Additionally, users can leverage the app to find local businesses – including restaurants, coffee shops and drugstores – near both, the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte and the Republican National Convention in Tampa.
