Ahead of the upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference 2011 which is scheduled to kick off on June 6, Apple has pushed an official WWDC iOS app to the App Store in order to assist those who will be attending the conference next week in Cupertino. The app, which can be downloaded free as a universal binary for both iPhone and iPad, provides news, photos and other informational material from the conference along with its complete schedule.
