Seating at Google I/O 2014 is limited to a small group of a few thousand, but the next best thing is Google releasing its official app for the developer conference. As we've seen with previous I/O Android apps, the 2014 edition focuses on helping attendees manage their time at the event with a schedule that highlights sessions that fit their desired track. Android or Chrome developers can see all of the added training sessions that interest them, mark it in their calendar, and know when conflicts arise. There are also reminders to get to sessions and vector-based indoor maps to help visitors to Moscone West know how to get around.
For the rest of us not able to attend I/O, there's still plenty to enjoy. The official app still offers reminders and schedules for those same sessions, only people off-site will want to know about the schedule because Google plans to share video from some sessions. The keynote in particular will be streamed live within the app in case you can't get to a computer to watch it on YouTube.
