This epic event brings together over 10,000 people from around the world to participate in Microsoft technology presentations, networking, and definitely off the hook parties.
In this mobile enabled, social media fueled, flash mob crazy, and instant tweetup culture, how can one keep up while at WPC12? Here are 6 essential Windows Phone Apps that I recommend you have while at WPC12:
The most highly rated and advanced TripIt.com companion app. Now you can take your TripIt.com plans with you on your phone when you travel! (and edit them!)
Awesome for VOiP calls for international travelers while at WPC12 – helps you avoid roaming charges
With all the networking that’s gonna happen at WPC12 – exchanging business cards will still be in vogue. However, how many of us would want to carry a stack of business cards around?
With CamCard, you can take a picture of a card with phone camera and contact information will be recognized via cloud based service. Once information is captured, you can export it to your address book
If you run out of business cards, LinkedIn is a great way to get connected with your new acquaintance. Get on-the-go access and connect with 16M professionals worldwide.
Hands down the best Twitter app on the Windows Phone. All of Twitter on one screen. No need to tap many buttons to reach to desired timelines. Apart from your all day timelines, Lists, Saved Searches, Retweets, all accessible through a unique timeline called Quick Line.
Make sure you follow me
and the hashtag #WPC12
to get the latest and greatest!
Want to keep up where the hottest events and parties are? Make sure you’re plugged in with Foursquare
When mobile, use 4th and Mayor – it’s a quick, clean, simple foursquare client for Windows Phone. (I wonder what will be the prize for being the mayor of WPC12?)
