The Google I/O 2012 app is for Android devices running Android 2.2 and above and have been optimised for both smartphones and tablets, and enables users to view the event’s agenda along with the ability to edit their personal schedule, view detailed sessions, speaker info, speaker biographies, Google+ profiles, photos, and code lab.
With the conference companions app for Android the user can also +1 sessions, take part in #io2012 conversations on Google+, use the conference map as a guide, see info on companies in the Google Sandbox, keep up with I/O team announcements, play back I/O Live session video streams on Android 3.0+ devices, see your schedule on Android 3.0+ devices home screen via an app widget.
