We Have a Mobile App!

We are very excited to unveil Split This Rock's 2014 festival mobile app, which allows Smart Phone and tablet users to carry everything there is to know about the 2014 festival in their pocket! The free app works on both iPhones and Android phones and includes:

- Full festival schedule and panel descriptions
- Bios of our 16 Featured Poets
- Bios of all Presenters, linked to their panels
- Maps of festival neighborhood and venues
- Eatery suggestions
- Information about festival sponsors
- Split This Rock History, Mission, and Program 

With the app, you'll be able to bookmark events, take notes, and add favorite events to a personalized schedule. You can even set reminders to notify you about events!

Social media components allow you to browse Split This Rock's Twitter and Facebook feeds, as well as share your own social media updates. Let your friends know which
panels and readings have blown your mind with, literally, a few finger taps. You can even share photos!   

Browse our own photo set including photos from the past three festivals, and watch videos from the 2012 festival readings -- those are at your fingertips too.
The app includes a built-in map with markers for all main festival venues. We've also included a list of recommended neighborhood eateries and coffee shops to check out while you're in town.   

With the app we are now able to send you instant updates. If there is a last minute venue change or an unfortunate cancellation we'll send out a push notification to your phone.

With special thanks to United By Love Design for designing the visual elements. And to the folks at CrowdTorch for doing all the coding work and making it happen.
