Humm... It won't work. I hit "Free" then "Install" then type in my password, hit enter, the app closes as usual, then nothing no scroll to next page and download.

Note: I am not attending the WWDC, if this is why I can't get it, that makes sence.

Nah you're good! Unfortunately, they didn't give me an ETA or anything, and they don't seem to know what the issue is, so I can't give you a timeframe or anything.

Both, Canadian and American stores are acting up. Can't update apps, download, nothing, and they keep asking for password.

The Dutch store as well, also getting error 5002. I've seen on different forum that UK store has the same error (today, I checked).

When you download it you need to be attending wwdc to actually see any of the information.

Access is limited to WWDC attendees only via Apple ID verification.

Oh well, at least the icon is fun to look at.

Would be nice if they had a keynote app for watching the streaming feeds. :)

Back in the dim and distant past, before these new-fangled connected iPhones and iPads, I used to run a website called 'expodition' that allowed you to download guides like this and use them on your iPods.

It used the iPod's 'Notes' feature and would enable you to view schedules and stuff on your iPod simply by downloading the file, connecting your iPod to your PC/Mac in disk mode, and copying it on.

WWDC was a popular one, but also other destinations and attractions, too.

Ahhhh... memories...

Uh, yeah they did. It was distributed only to attendees either via email or the developer download site, I forget which, and you had to install it manually via iTunes.

They most certainly did have this exact thing last year. The only difference, if I remember correctly, is that you had to install it in an Ad Hoc sort of manner rather than via the App Store.

[...] WWDC is a universal application supporting all iOS devices running iOS 4.2 or later. [...]

It'll be awesome to see this through Apple TV on my 60" Sony SXRD HDTV set.

Oh. Wait...

Correct, they definitely had this last year. I used the WWDC 2010 app. This new app looks very similar, and has very similar functionality. The main difference I've seen so far is that this year, it's on the App Store; whereas last year, it was distributed on the iOS Developer Portal (then called the iPhone Developer Portal).

Perhaps an app with a live feed of the event? :3

I went to WWDC 2009. That was the first year they had an iPhone app.

Me too! I got excited for a minute there, only to be greeted by the login screen when the app opened :(

No. It's there. I have it on my iPhone, not that I can use it or anything... Anyone can download it, but only attendees can login and access the content. Maybe that'll change in the future, never know. I could easily see them using the app as a way to access the Live Stream of the keynote. Makes too much sense for them not to add it at some point in the future.

The app is only useful for those going to wwdc. And can not be used by anyone else. Useless:mad:
