Ratings and Reviews
A downgrade on 2017s App
The app has lost key functionality from previous years. The ability to see your friends lineup by having their picture appear on the act was really useful, as you could find out where they were whilst at the festival plus it was great for seeing what the group wanted to do each day. The new function allows you to import your friends lineup as you’re own, which doesn’t help distinguish between yours and there’s. Really disappointed that it’s lost it’s best feature. Also when creating your line up, if you click on an act to read about it then go back to the line up, it takes you to the earliest time on the first stage (top left corner) rather than where you were. Meaning you have to scroll back through all stages and times and figure out where you were. Seems like a fundamental bug. Map is also more awkward to use this year.
What has happened to the app from 2 years ago? This appears as if a new version was supposed to be made available but you can’t get it working and have reverted to the old one - but a terrible version that doesn’t work very well. Half the acts don’t even come up with tracks or descriptions. How are you supposed to choose to add them? The line up feature is terrible. You used to see your line up along the top bar along with cross overs. Now you keep having to scroll down through the stages to see listings. You can’t share your line up properly. What’s the point of a link to someone else’s app? It used to seamless and appear on your app when shared. I keep trying to think why EE would benefit from sending you through these links that don’t even work properly. There’s either some advertising related reason or simply the fact that the app wasn’t ready and you’ve reverted to an old version. If at least you released the 2017 version that worked properly it would be better than this. The map is not very good either. Please for god’s sake, sort this out before Glasto starts.
Promising but functionality lets it down
You don’t need much from an app that will only be used for 5 days and on the face of it this app should deliver everything you need. The ability of it to create your own lineup and to notify you when one of your chosen acts is about to start is great but the basics let the app down. The fact the lineup screen always defaults to Friday (Rather than the day you are on) is poor and even worse it is almost impossible to change between the days so I can only see Friday’s lineup (really helpful on sat or sun). Just getting the basic functionality right would make this such a better app.
