Read Article

In just over a week, we will be heading down to Austin, TX for this year’s SXSW festivities. SXSW (south by Southwest) has been running since 1987 and has recently grown into one of the most anticipated events each year. Originally a music conference, SXSW has become much more than that since 1994, when SXSW added a film and interactive component to accommodate these growth industries. SXSW Film and SXSW Interactive events together attract approximately 32,000 registrants to Austin every March. In honor of this amazing event, we have compiled a list of the top Music, Film and Interactive Apps out there:
