If you’ve tried out similar apps for the Adobe Max convention or Google’s I/O conference, you know what you can expect here. The app guides you around the various exhibits and merchants you’ll find at the convention, and even offers an integrated alarm to make sure you don’t miss the Tauren cosplay contest. In typical Blizzard fashion, the phone app is skinned to better immerse you in the real-life digital world – check out the parchment theme on the convention hall map.
Apps like this can be a godsend at busy conventions, and with more than 30,000 expected attendees, BlizzCon certainly qualifies. It’s great to see Blizzard reaching out to the Android userbase that undoubtedly makes up a significant percentage of its regular customers. If you’re preparing to go to BlizzCcon 2011 (or you just wish that you were), head on over to the Android Market to download the free app. The app is also available on iOS.

Bizzard’s official convention for all things Warcraft, Starcraft and Diablo is set for this weekend in Anaheim, California, and if you’re planning on hopping in your ’03 Epic Mount to make the trip, you won’t be wanting for directions when you get there. Blizzard is teaming up with Nvidia to provide convention-goers with an official guide app for BlizzCon 2011. The Android app features a full calendar and map of the Anaheim Convention Center.
