Make Sure You Always Have Reliable Service at SXSW with This App Listen to this article

With SXSW quickly approaching, there will be a lot of people out there packing their bags up to get down to Austin, Texas. Once you get down there, sure you’ll be around plenty of panels, parties and amazing food, but how will you stay connected knowing there will be thousands of people all in attendance?

That’s where the app Speedify comes into play. Available for iOS and Android, Speedify is built to handle those moments where you’ll be in a congested area and getting the worst possible connection.

Even stated by the folks over at SXSW themselves on their homepage:

“Due to the user load in congested areas, you may experience a slow connection or have difficulty connecting to the network at times. If that is the case, you may want to move to a less congested area.”

Now, if you’ve ever been to SXSW, you know there isn’t ever a less congested area, so Speedify is there to save the say. What the app does is allows you to combine your mobile data, on top of Wi-Fi networks in the immediate area in order to give you optimal connection speeds regardless of how crowded that room is. Are you on a limit data plan? Speedify automatically detects your slow LTW network and starts up, bonding with any available public Wi-Fi to give you the bandwidth you need to post your digital media.

If you’re headed to SXSW, this is certainly an app that should be on your phone for the next few days. You can actually download the app today here.
