    Default Gen Con iPhone app

    Got this press release today from Gen Con, thought it was pretty cool for people with iPhones (although I don't have one):

    LaViaz Mobile to provide iPhone/iPod Touch application for attendees of
    Gen Con Indy

    Indianapolis, IN‹ (July 15, 2009) Gen Con LLC announced today that they have
    entered into a 2-year agreement with LaViaz Mobile, based in Carmel, IN, to
    develop an iPhone application for Gen Con Indy. Now in its 42nd year, the
    nation¹s largest annual consumer fantasy, electronic, sci-fi and adventure
    game convention is scheduled to be held August 13-16 in Indianapolis. Gen
    Con Indy Mobile will allow attendees to synchronize the latest version of
    the event catalog on their iPhone while at the convention. They will also be
    able to ³mark² events as favorites and tell their friends about events they
    are attending. The application will also feature integration with Facebook
    and Twitter, popular social networking sites, and maps of all the venues.
    Gen Con Indy Mobile will be available as a free download from the iTunes App
    Store later this month.

    ³Gen Con LLC is passionate about delivering the most amazing gaming
    experience possible for our dedicated fans at Gen Con Indy. These are the
    same fans that grew Gen Con from the grassroots. Gen Con Indy Promotional
    Partner LaViaz Mobile is bringing us to the cutting edge of social
    connectivity, with the delivery of Gen Con Indy Mobile‹a valuable grassroots
    technology. We are proud to work with their team,² stated Adrian Swartout,
    CEO of Gen Con LLC.

    Combining expertise in the Apple iPhone and industry knowledge, LaViaz
    Mobile developed EventView, a modular application development platform for
    the iPhone. Gen Con Indy Mobile is the first application built on this
    platform. In addition to providing a better experience for attendees, the
    modular design and resultant flexibility of EventView make application
    development and implementation minimal for convention organizers.
    EventView also offers the opportunity to insert sponsor recognition.

    Couple of my co-workers own I-Phones and have been trying to convince me the I-Phone is the "next best thing since sliced bread".
