Apple Updates WWDC App with Bug Fixes Ahead of Next Week's Conference




Apple has updated its WWDC app with a number of bug fixes, including a fix for an error that caused videos to stop playing over AirPlay after an interruption and a fix for a disappearing events navigation bar. Here's the full changelog:
Quote:
Thanks for all the great feedback. This release includes numerous bug fixes:

- Videos now continue to play over AirPlay when the device locks or after interruptions, e.g., a phone call
- When playing videos, the audio ringer switch no longer mutes audio
- Favorites in Events go all the way to 11 PM
- Duplicate section headers in the videos list no longer appear
- The navigation bar in Events no longer disappears
- Blurry text in session details has been corrected
- Version information has been added to augment future bug reports or feedback

To get the most out of the WWDC app, make sure you sign in with your Registered Apple Developer account. If you're not a Registered Apple Developer, you can still use the app -- just tap Cancel when you're prompted to sign in.
Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference is set to begin next week. The company is expected to unveil several new products at the event, including iOS 7, OS X 10.9, new MacBooks, and its rumored streaming music service.

WWDC is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Apologies if this sounds a stupid question but is this app useful if you are not a registered developer but are interested in WWDC?

Cheers.

I sense some irony with this app getting an update before WWDC.

The WWDC app had a lot of bugs? That's not a good sign...

The WWDC App always has a lot of bugs. LOL! It had a lot of bugs last year. Apple probably had to rush and add the ability to view videos of sessions since the conference unexpectantly sold out in 2 minutes!

Just wait until the conference starts and 250,000 people are trying to stream the video via the WWDC App at the same time! It is going to be fun!

Supposedly the session videos will be released during the conference this year. Do we need this app to view them?

Some of the bugs listed seem like retard rookie mistakes. Any app that Apple themselves put out should be 10x better than anything anybody else could develop...and should be friggin' flawless!

- Videos now continue to play over AirPlay when the device locks or after interruptions, e.g., a phone call
- When playing videos, the audio ringer switch no longer mutes audio

REALLY?!?! Wow!!

I love my iPhone...I've had one of every model...love my iPad...my AppleTVs...my Retina MBP...but I've gotta say: Steve WAS Apple and I'm afraid their best days are in their rear view.

Prove me wrong Tim-bo (please).

If you have a developer account you should be able to view them from the dev portal.

I think this is a hint that the next release of iOS & OS X will quite possibly have bug fixes. Just a hunch though

agreed, it's just plain sloppy and inexcusable, but look at the buggy mess that the App Store itself has become since iOS6 and unfortunately, it all makes sense.

Looks like they in a hurry, that's a bad sign. Although the WWDC banners looks good, this icon is horrible and boring as hell.

Sucks that they made it an app only for those with 6.1.3 to snub the jailbreak community.
