While the new Stock Show smartphone app doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles, it does have a ton of information including maps and schedules. One cool feature is the “Friend Finder:” Tap on “+More” and Stockshow2scroll down to “Friend Finder” button. Once in, enter your name to get a pin. You can then give that pin to the folks in your posse. When they enter the pin, under “Your Friend’s Pin,” they can then scroll down in the instruction field and click on the maps link to find where you are on one of the provided Stock Show maps. To download, go to the App Store for your iPhone or Android Market for your Droid and search for “Fort Worth Stock Show” or go to and scan the QR code on the web site.
