CNN, TIME Release Convention News Mobile App

CNN and TIME magazine have partnered to release “Convention Floor Pass,” a mobile application to aid attendees of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions.

“The app will feature 24/7 breaking news updates and alerts, daily analysis and commentary, exclusive early access to CNN-TIME polls, photos and video from CNN and TIME journalists on the ground at the Republican and Democratic National Conventions,” a CNN release said.

Convention Floor Pass features:

  • An up-to-date “Guide” with a calendar that marks parties, events and other happenings at the convention.
  • A “local info” tab that lists bars, restaurants and stores near the convention halls in both Charlotte and Tampa.
  • TIME‘s “Cover of the Day.” For the first time ever, TIME will be releasing a new cover image and corresponding story each day during both conventions.

The application is available for iPhone, iPad, Android and any other web-enabled mobile device. Download it from the iTunes store here.
