Apple's WWDC app gets updated with video enhancements, bug fixes

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Apple on Friday released an update to its WWDC 2013 iOS app, bringing a number feature enhancements and bug fixes to the title ahead of the conference scheduled to kick off on Monday.

WWDC App


Along with the "numerous" bug fixes, WWDC for iOS version 1.0.1 brings a feature which allows videos streaming over AirPlay to continue to play after suffering an interruption, such as a device lock or phone call.

In addition, favorited Events are now extended to 11 p.m., and a fix was put in for a bug that would cause video audio to be muted when switching the ringer switch to silent.

Issues resolved:
  • Favorites in Events go all the way to 11 PM
  • Duplicate section headers in the videos list no longer appear
  • The navigation bar in Events no longer disappears
  • Blurry text in session details has been corrected
  • Version information has been added to augment future bug reports or feedback

The update to Apple's WWDC companion app comes just days three days before the conference is scheduled to kick off. Those who haven't yet downloaded the free title can do so for free from the iOS App Store.

WWDC 2013 is slated to run from June 10 through 14 at Moscone West in San Francisco, where Apple will preview its next-generation iOS 7 and OS X 10.9 operating systems. Also rumored to be unveiled at the event are refreshes to the MacBook lineup including a slimmer 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro and dual-mic MacBook Air.

Bug fixes for an app that is guide for a conference unveiling the new iOS. Kind of ironic.

Oh! So that's why the install is hanging on my iPad.

 

Funny that it was even allowed to download in the first place…

You haven't upgraded yet? I apply every iOS update as soon as I can.

I'm guessing it's an iPad 1. That it allowed you to install is probably a bug.

Same here… when physically possible.

Yep. This has happened before a few times, too. I forget what I did then…

Gee thanks. What gave you a clue that I didn't know - the fact that I called it an app?

Not clear. The app says, "And if you can't join us in SF, you can still use the app to follow along - session videos are just a tap away for all Registered Apple Developers." My suspicion is that this means videos after the fact, and not live streaming. But it's not perfectly clear, AFAIK.

Ok Well then, Looks like just streaming off the website then.
