SXSW: There’s an app for that

Tuesday, March 12, 2019 by Tai Moses

Psst! SXSW attendees, are you listening? Here are two apps that will help you safely navigate the busy festival season and stay informed. It’s a free twofer: Download the Austin Police Department app and the SXSW Go app and you’ll be in the know while you stay safe and secure. SXSW Go, the official guide to South by Southwest, boasts a continually updating schedule of events, among many other useful features. APD’s app provides info such as station locations, news updates, crime prevention tips, and the ability to send APD tips anonymously and chat with officers. You can even file select police reports directly from the app. Download APD’s app and SXSW Go at the App Store. Android users can find APD here and SXSW Go here.
