If you follow politics, then you are likely aware that the Republican National Convention is coming up on July 18th. What better way to help those interested in the convention prepare than with an official application, right? Smartphones are the main tool and device used by tons of people in the U.S. these days, so it may not be a surprise to some that there will be an official app to help you make the most of the RNC this year whether you're able to physically attend the convention or not. In fact, the RNC's digital director, Samantha Osborne stated that they wanted people to have a pretty seamless experience even if they weren't in Cleavland, Ohio where the convention is taking place, displaying that they weren't just thinking about people who will be there.
To that end, the RNC:2016 Official App will allow users to view 360-degree live streams of the convention right on their phone screens. This is sure to be a useful tool for anyone who wanted an interactive method of viewing what happens, but it also displays a great use of 360-degree content and signifies even more so that the creation of this type of content is only going to see more and more uses.
The app will also have regular live streams, so if you don't particularly care for viewing things from all angles, you can simply watch the stream that's recorded by regular cameras. Of course, if you want one less application to install, you can still catch a live stream of the 2016 RNC without this app as Google announced earlier this year (back in April) that they would be live streaming the Republican National Convention as well. In addition to live streaming content, the app will also offer on demand videos and highlights to watch throughout the convention, and for anyone attending, there will be indoor mapping and a system for finding your way around the convention, just in case you'll need a little assistance. The app will also have tabs for listing nearby Hotels and a tab for shuttles as well as other transportation to and from the hotels people may be staying to the 2016 RNC venue. You can pick up the RNC 2016 Official App from the Play Store now.
