Find all the information you need about that next convention you’re attending with Guidebook, today’s leading Fresh iPhone app. It pulls info off the Internet so you can read it even when you’re not connected and make sure you know everything you need to before heading out. Read about it below along with some other useful entries, like Music Hunter, a music discovery app for the iPad, and Trimensional, which uses your iOS device’s camera to take 3D images.

Guidebook (iPhone, iPad) Free

Guidebook is your source for information about major events like trade shows, conventions and expos. It comes loaded with stuff you should know when attending a major event like a convention, providing maps, event schedules and exhibitor lists to help you plan your time.

Offline viewing is supported by Guidebook, allowing you to download info you might need and check it later when you’re not online. The app gives you the ability to set up schedules for yourself for later reference, and to share what you’re excited about seeing with friends via Twitter.

Trimensional (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

With Trimensional, you can turn your iPhone or iPad 2’s front-facing camera into a 3-D scanner. Shots get saved into a library within the app that allows you to browse, rotate and zoom on your 3-D images, and you can use them to create animated GIFs, movies and images.

You can render your 3-D scans with six different options, and advanced users can purchase the ability to save your scans so they can be edited with 3-D graphics editing software. The app also lets you email your projects to friends or save them to your camera roll so they can be used for posts on the Internet.
