Ratings and Reviews
Can't use the list function still, updated.
Similar to a review on the last version, I can create a list and add one thing to it but then I cannot retrieve the list again. This happens on my iPhone, iPad, and on the website as well. I love that I can see the art and add them to a list but since I will be only there for a short time I need to prioritize. And if I can't actually use the list I will have to write them down as the other reviewer.
Update: Nothing new to report. Even after updating for the third time the list function is useless. You can create a list, but then never see it again, nor use it, nor add anything else to it. It just disappears. I'll still use the app while I'm in GR but the main thing I would have liked is unusable. Thanks for the response though.
Developer Response ,
Hi, Sumnerd - Lists are located under your account view which can be accessed from the first tab. We will take this feedback into account for changes next year. Thank you and, happy ArtPrizing!
So glad I came to see ArtPrize
It was only at my sisters birthday request that I brought her for an overnight visit to see ArtPrize.
I am not much for city crowds ... but once I got “settled in”....
It was truly an eclectic, artistic, menagerie of amazing pieces located within the city. I especially enjoyed speaking with the lovely impassioned artists who were eager to engage and share passion and talents.
It was inspiring...and a great deal of fun.. we also got in some real walking exercise in the 2 days we walked the city ... Seeking the next amazing surprise.... sometimes just around the corner!
I will see you at the next ArtPrize!
Lists cannot be retrieved
So having been to ArtPrize before, I know it’s hard to see everything! Thought spending some time on the app prior to going would give me a chance to screen and make a list of what I wanted to see. Well I can add to a list-GREAT! but can’t pull it up to view it! Useless.
Last time the location services drained my battery so quickly-couldn’t rely on it. It does not turn off location services even if you shut off the app. I did not know that, sharing so there won’t be more people stranded without workable map to guide them through ArtPrize!
