They don’t call CES the largest tradeshow for nothing. If you’ve ever been to the annual Consumer Electronic Show, you know just how large and how crazy the whole thing can get.
However, there is a tech tool that can help you get around the show a little easier. Follow Me is the official CES app. Available for Android and iOS devices, this app can help you build your schedule, track courses and events, and even get around the actual floor.
According to the CEA, Follow Me also features a full exhibitor directory. That’s great, but just know that it’s pretty big, so it’s a work in progress. However, this feature should allow you to find booths more easily, and maybe even see what products certain exhibitors are showing off during the event.
Another nice perk is that the app does offer discounts at local restaurants, as well as late-breaking CES news and real-time interactive floor maps. Also, you can share your agenda with friends that are attending the show, so they know where you are and when.
App: Follow Me
Find it Here: Android Market, iTunes
