Updated for 2019!
This is an unofficial app for managing events, games, maps, and more for Gen Con 2019. This app is not associated with Gen Con LLC in any way.
This app allows you to download, search, and sort the entire Gen Con 2019 events catalog. It stays updated or allows you to manually sync events whenever you like. This is useful at the convention center where internet can be hard to come by amongst the other 60,000 attendees.
You can add events to your calendar or share them with friends. It also gives you links to the events on the official GenCon website so you can register for them or buy tickets.
*New features!* Customizable event lists! Create your own custom schedule and share it with your friends! Import other's lists! Print your list so you can carry it with you at the convention! Be notified any time an event in your lists gets updated!
Please note that some information/maps might be missing (such as the food trucks schedule). They will be updated within the app as soon as Gen Con releases them.
Additionally, there are several maps of the convention center layout, downtown Indy, parking, and more!
This app is totally free and open sourced under the GPL-3.0 license. Look up "UnofficialGenconMobile" on Github to help contribute!
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!
