A great resource

I love how you can see everything that is happening at the event! I’ll be using this to plan and schedule out my weekend.

Terrible app, don’t expect it to help you

Okay, so this is obviously a low effort app and you’re better off using the website because this is like the website, but worse.

Your best guide to LATFOB is the paper insert from the Times as that will have a usable map.

When I tried to use the map in the app I saw a tiny cluster of pins and that doesn’t help me navigate the campus at all. I ended up typing my destination into Apple Maps because that map zoomed well and I could see my current location.

The most functionality I got from this app was the list of authors and then every time I used that it wanted to link me to other pages and apps.

This is what happens when somebody high up in a company decides they need an app and they do a low effort job of executing.

Anyways, it also smells like it’s trying to use me for marketing so I’m going to delete it quickly.
