Leaves you wanting much more to the degree of frustration

The best feature of this app was the ability to see a live listing of events by location so you could see what was going on in real time. The map was just a static image like the printed brochure. What happened to the beacon and GPS technology? For me it was nowhere to be found in the app other than settings- making it useless to find things I was interested in without looking at the paper map. Why can’t it show me on the map where a particular vendor or activity is? Seems like there is potential for another year.

Clunky and annoying

It’s faster to find what’s happening in the paper or on the website itinerary.

The website itinerary widget is nice, so I downloaded this thinking it’d be the same, but nope.

When asked to sign up for notifications so I’d be told about changes in events and emergency warnings I thought “sure, sounds good.” However all I’ve seen so far is hype messages like “there’s nothing like the Iowa State Fair!” 🙄 I’m here, you don’t need to promote to me. Don’t waste my data unless necessary.
