Many changes! Visual overhaul, gesture support, interactive OFFLINE exhibit hall map, updated maps, updated schedules, ability to change display font size, on top of the normal Unofficial Gen Con you know and love! Still free, ad-free, and open-source!
Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I have used this all gen con and really, especially for a FREE app, it is fabulous. One who reviewed complained about a time sync/ update each time the app was opened. Yes- it does that INTENTIONALLY. People drop out of events leaving spaces available or sometimes they add more events. You the app to do this so you can get into events that may have filled. It’s very, very good.
Update: the app has an interactive map that allows you to type in a location and it will pinpoint the room! Awesome! All you have to do from that point is follow the map. Come on people! We are gamers! No dungeon crawl has ever been THAT easy!
Very helpful at Gen Con
My favorite part was being able to see any changes to my My List (aka schedule) in the app after it checked for updates. This was useful for knowing if people returned or bought tickets and how many would likely be participating. I used the maps a hundred times to find my way all over the event, and even scoured the events list several times when I had unexpected free time I needed to fill in. At the Con, this app was what I used for just about everything I needed.
Amazing Little App
This very lightweight app makes searching for events and pulling up maps on the iPhone a breeze.
I like that the app has the ability to quickly add events to my calendar, but my only wish is that I could customize what data from the event listing was moved to my calendar. It’s easy enough to just copy/paste the additional data I want, however.
The only “bug” I’ve found: Last year I did notice some discontinuity between the food truck schedule in the app and the actual food trucks that showed up (Some trucks listed that never showed, and a lot of trucks that showed but were not listed), but this is likely because the food truck schedule is in so much flux until the very last minute. I don’t fault the developer for this.
Otherwise, I’ve had no issues. Keep up the great work!
