Pointless, but it still works
I really don’t understand what the point was of making a separate app for guides when there was already a PAX app you could have just updated anyway. Not only that, the layout is very confusing for someone who has used the Guidebook app this one takes its base format from. There actually is a way to save an item to a personal schedule—you have to hit the star waaay on the right of it. You can’t have separate reminder times for certain items either, you have to use a set interval for all of them. That’s what the people want, I guess, less options for how to schedule in an app made for scheduling. I was going to give this two stars, but I’m being generous in saying downloading this app is slightly more convenient than using the notepad and alarm apps on my phone to determine my PAX itinerary.
Schedule is not up to date
There are several events such as the platinum and baldurs gate 3 events that are not on this and thus not schedule-able. What the heck?
Took out all the useful features.
TLDR: This app has less features than the guidebook app and lacks polish.
PAX decided to take their app development in-house this year for PAX East 2020 instead of using guidebook and the app really doesn’t function as nicely anymore. You can’t make todo lists anymore with exhibitors like you could with guidebook. You can’t filter the schedule by type of event. You also can’t add things to your personal schedule like you could with guidebook.
Overall the app looks like it was quickly thrown together. It lacks the polish that guidebook provided in the past. PAX should stick to focusing on the convention and letting guidebook do the rest.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
