DNC 2012 (Free)

In anticipation of the 2012 Democratic National Convention, which begins September 3 in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Democratic Party this week released the official DNC 2012 Android application. The app offers live video streams and photos for those who cannot attend convention events at Time Warner Cable Arena or Bank of America Stadium. Convention delegates can use the app to tap into a layout of the convention hall and find out the hotspots in Charlotte for some after hours fun. The free app, developed by AT&T, also includes a live Tweet feed.
