Inauguration 2013: There's an app for that
The 57th Presidential Inauguration is here and for the first time, there is an official app for that.
The PIC— the Presidential Inaugural Committee—released an app called Inauguration 2013 let’s you do things like livestream the ceremony and map out the day.
For folks at the ceremony, the app will show you where to find the nearest viewing screens, the nearest bathrooms and even the nearest first aid centers.
Another cool feature on the app is showing a map of the parade. For Inauguration 2009, they ran into a bit of trouble with some crowds that were stuck and could not see the event that they showed up for. This app aims to fix that.
For those of you not in D.C. for the Inauguration, the app lets you livestream the ceremony and check out pictures and updates.
