Ratings and Reviews
Great festival app
Love this app. Makes planning your week at Whitby folk festival loads easier and much better for the environment than a printed program!
Overall I find this a useful app. However I think this is the third year running where I have made the much the same comments about a couple of things that really irritate me.
1. The Event list shows the event title, time, and some info on the artists involved. Unsurprisingly the latter is somewhat truncated on my iPhone, but quite complete in an iPad.
What it doesn’t have is any indication of the location. To find that that you have to view the Event details.
I would really like to have the Venue name on the Event list, even if it meant using more space for each item on the list. If I’m interested in several events then the venue is very often the deciding factor that determines which one I go to, especially if I’m much closer to one venue than another. With the paper programme the information is all at hand, but with the app I have to open and close each event to see where they are, and then remember all their Venues while deciding which to go to.
2. When you do open an event, to see where it is, he top half of the screen is taken up by a map. This tells you roughly where the event is, but you still have to find the Venue name somewhere around the bottom of the screen to know exactly where.
Taking up the top half other screen with a map also that means you have to scroll down to see the full list of artists, and the running order.
It would save me an awful lot of scrolling if the map was at the bottom of the event details, rather than the top.
How very forward thinking
This is great!
