IDG has just released an update to their Macworld Expo companion app, iMacworld [App Store, Free]. In addition to being completely rewritten, the update brings all of the maps, events, and vendors up to date with this year's Macworld. The app isn't pretty, but it gives you access to lots of helpful features for navigating the expo. It includes a list of exhibitors, their info, and the ability to star them so you can remember which companies you want to see.
If you're headed out to Macworld next week, grab iMacworld before you leave! It's free and incredibly useful.
