What's New in Version 1.6.4
- Bug fixes
Poorly Designed and Executed
A smartphone app should have "smart" features to make accomplishing a task simple. All this app does is point you to their miserably flawed website. No geolocation, no ability to upload photos or share travel experiences and recommendations, and the search function is abysmal at best. Other reviewers give this thing 5-stars simply because the description of the app says the app has extremely limited functionality, but in my mind you don't earn stars simply by declaring you are incapable of building a quality app. These clowns at Active Network are clueless. This app would have been a joke in 2007 when the first iPhones were released, but to still offer such a crappy app in 2016 is just an embarrassment. The sad part is that the Government undoubtedly pays these clowns tens of millions of dollars each year to provide this garbage. Shame on you Active Network.
All you can do is search & book. You cannot manage your account, access or edit active reservations, or see your history. The actual website is much better, which completely defeats the purpose of an app. I recommend using Reserve America's app instead... so much better.
Has none of the usability treatises of the webpage.
