Guidebook, great app for cosplayers!

I really hate carrying around the pocket program book when in cosplay... and when I have pockets I really don't have room for it. Anime North now has their schedule up on guidebook, an app for cell phones. It has all the events at anime north on it, plus maps. You can even make your own schedule to keep yourself organized, and it will send reminders! Normally i prefer paper things to hold, but with everything this app offers I won't be looking twice at my paper book.

If you check the site --> WINDOWS PHONE 7 (VIA WEB)

I assume that means you need to go to the website and download it via that?

Yes, while on iPhone and Android you can download the app straight from the play store (where you download most other apps), on Windows Phone 7 (and blackberry) I think you have to navigate to the website using your phone's browser, and download it straight from their website.

It's 100% worth it though. I downloaded it, and I think its coolest feature is that it allows you to pick photoshoots, panels, and other events that are scheduled, and add them to your personal schedule. Your phone can then remind you prior to those events starting that they will be occurring.

Well shit. I can't use my phone in cosplay due to hard-to-remove gloves. Guess I'm still using paper this year.

You need a minion to look up stuff for you.

It works for Blackberry Playbook. Guidebook was free in AppWorld.
Thanks for mentioning the app!
