App Info: Are you attending a Penny Arcade Expo (PAX)? Then Pocket PAX is the app for you!
Pocket PAX contains what you need to make your experience even better! In it you will find a copy of the Official Schedule provided on the paxsite.com website, but with the bonus of it being stored locally. Previous PAX attendees can attest that when you get that many gamers in one spot data connections can be “slightly” less reliable. What if the PAX schedule changes for some reason? Fear not! Pocket PAX has the ability to download schedule updates.
Pocket PAX also allows you to favorite any panels in the schedule that you are interested in. Favoriting a panel will give you two perks, firstly you will be able to see all of your favorited events in the My Schedule only view of Pocket PAX and secondly Pocket PAX will create a notification for you that will alert you 1 hour before the panel is about to being and if you tap the notification when it displays Pocket PAX will launch and show you the details regarding the panel. All panel information is searchable from within Pocket PAX and allows for location filtering during the search.
You can also access all relevant and offical PAX information feeds. You can view two very important twitter streams, @pax_lines (keeps you up to date on line statuses for the various panels) and @official_pax (which provides various information about the Expo). Also available is the offical PAX RSS News Feed. Offline maps are also available and are zoomable.
All functionality is pinable to your Windows Phone start screen for easy access. Also if you choose to enable Pocket PAX’s dynamic live tiles your pinned start screen icons will come alive with extra information relevant to the icon.Tags: PAX East 2013, Pocket PAXApps
