Ratings and Reviews
Very handy, annoying bugs
I haven't used it to buy tickets, so can't talk about that functionality. However, it's been really useful to navigate to shows and venues. It syncs any tickets you've bought on the website, so you can see times and venues. There's functionality to add the shows to your phone calendar, when I did this it added about 50 entries for each show, which then required manual removal. Very annoying. Hence the three stars
Great app, on balance
This is a good app, worthy of the festival it serves.
The account integration is simple but effective, allowing me to see my full order history.
Purchasing tickets is an easy and beautiful process, regularly enabling me to buy last-minute tickets whilst walking to shows.
I didn’t find the planner to be helpful, as it seemed to fail to save my choices.
The integrated mapping and location services are gorgeous and helpful, as well as the phone call button for each venue. It would be even better if the app offered directions, either built-in or as a simple “Open in Apple Maps” clickthrough. Alternatively, I wish the venue information text were selectable, so that users could copy and paste venue names and postcodes, to save time.
Adding favourites is a great way to keep track of what I want to see, and the ability to sort by Start Time is extremely helpful. I use this option almost every time, and I wish I had the option to save this sorting preference as the default. Currently, it defaults to A-Z every time you open Favourites.
I hope this feedback reaches the developer, as I’m sure these suggestions could be implemented in time for next year’s festival. Many thanks for providing such an invaluable app.
Developer Response ,
Hi there, thank you for the feedback. We're delighted that you found the app useful and it's really helpful to hear about your experience of where features could be improved. We'll most certainly consider this when planning for next year. Thanks!
I bought tickets for a couple of shows no problem. I added some further shows to my planner and then went to buy tickets for one of them. I changed my mind when I saw the cost but there was no option to go back to the planner or the main menu - only to add/remove the show from the planner (which didn’t take me away from the screen) or continue to payment. - I continued, purposely entering wrong CC details to try to get out of the system and back to the main menu but there was still no option for this. Have now deleted the app and will see where that has got me...
