Art is great but new map is awful! -Fixed!

They fixed it from the below review. Re-rating. But still don’t think it needs dark mode- but happy I can look at a flat map again. Thanks!

This new map is horrible. It looks fancy but not manageable or functional. Please go back to last year’s map!! I would expect to use it to understand where in the valley each exhibit was and be able to get directions from it or at least get a comprehensible view of where the exhibit was. Had to go to each individual page of the exhibit and get directions from there. But when you are doing a tour- you want to see which exhibit is closest to you. Map snaps back and you can barely see the blue dot that says where you are nor the street you are on.

Developer Response ,

Hello, thank you for your feedback. We understand this is frustrating and have made some changes. If you update to the latest version of the app, you'll find that we removed the re-centering of the map, added street names to the map, and added a button to toggle between 2D and 3D modes on the map. We hope this makes navigating Desert X 2023 easier.

Love Art

Really enjoy Desert X! I was on a mission today looking for the locations and had a really hard time finding some pieces. It would be great if you could update the app with the correct addresses. Thank you!

He ain't THAT good ,

Doesn’t let you plan a drive list

Sure it has a map. Sure it lists all the spots. Sure, in an artsy way, it might look cool to some. But I think it’s cumbersome and lacks the ability to actually plan a trip from point to point within the app. So you have to look at the address on the app and then get out of the app to another map to plot a drive to it. 🙄🤦🏻‍♂️ Why do I feel like people still think they’re in the late 20th century in the way these Apps are written? Why do these apps not have the coordination with the map company they’ve hired to do be able to do trips within the app itself???
If you’re going to do that, just give me all the locations in one list so I can copy and paste it all and move them over. Why do I have to keep clicking on one thing and then get out and click on another??? It’s asinine is what it is. And lazy.
