Time Warner Inc. has introduced a new CNN-Time “Convention Floor Pass” app, a mobile tool that will provide information on the 2012 political conventions. The app will feature 24/7 breaking news updates and alerts, daily analysis and commentary, early access to CNN-Time polls, photos and video from CNN and Time journalists at the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. The app is designed to be of particular use to those in attendance in Charlotte and Tampa, as well as those monitoring the events from other locations.
Developed for Time Warner by Carnival Labs Limited and available via iPhone, iPad, Android or any web-enabled mobile device, CNN-Time Convention Floor Pass features news and analysis provided by CNN and Time political reporters. It will also include a “Time cover of the day” – a first for the publication – that will correspond to the day’s top story from the conventions.
The app will include a multimedia library of convention speeches given by legislators and newsmakers, maps and local information, social media and coverage. It will enable users to play the “Bump ‘n Find State Badge Quest.” Delegates and convention attendees can personalize their pass by identifying their state of origin to unlock the first of 50 state badges then they can collect additional states and share their badges with other CNN-Time Convention Floor Pass users.
