#25/SDCC 2014: Introducing Our New, Totally Redesigned OFFICIAL Comic-Con App!

The OFFICIAL Comic-Con App

iOS versions on an iPad Mini (Retina Display) and an iPhone 5.

Comic-Con International is teaming up with NBC for the brand new, OFFICIAL Comic-Con App in a breakthrough partnership! This entirely redesigned app will enhance the user’s experience with new features such as an interactive map of the Exhibit Hall, live updated schedules where events can be added directly to your calendar, discovery tools, and the ability to share socially and post comments! The Official Comic-Con App works great on your smart phone and/or your tablet, too! And best of all, once downloaded, it works regardless of having an Internet connection!

The Official Comic-Con App is available NOW on iOS (click here) and Android (click here).

This is a completely new App. Please delete any previous version you may have before downloading the new one.

Click the links and download your device's version and check it out … and use it during your Comic-Con 2014 visit and year-round for our sister shows, APE (the Alternative Press Expo) and WonderCon Anaheim!

See the screen grabs below for a look at the new features and the new design!
