All feedback is welcome!

App crash or other difficulty? Contact support at the email address below - we respond quickly.
NOTE: VegasMate uses geofencing for location. You may see a hollow location icon in your status bar. This does not mean GPS is active, it is a very low power operation. More info on our support site if you have any questions. We deeply respect your battery.
What's New in Version 4.1.2
++ New In This Build ++
This is primarily a bug fix update to VegasMate.
- Optionally badge the VegasMate icon with the number of days until your next trip!
- Added the ability to manually update the search index if it is older than one day. The system also does this automatically but this option is now here, just in case.
- Adjusted the layout of the trip view a little bit, for better legibility.
- Changed the detail screen map view to standard, from satellite, for better legibility.
- Your purchased status is now reflected with either green or red in the store area.
- More aggressive file caching for better performance and offline support.
- Reload the index screen less frequently.
- Trip support now includes an option to de-duplicate your trips if you end up with multiple copies due to a broken import.
- Reduced overall memory consumption, making for a nicer app.
- Fixed a bug where imported trips from backups or shared files could have times that were slightly off (i.e. 9:59am instead of 10:00am). Note that the fix doesn’t apply to previously saved files - a new export/import is required to gain the benefit of the fix. Backups are created automatically when you leave the app and should be updated after one save cycle.
- Fixed a bug where ancient trips not recently completed would still prompt for trip reviews.
- Fixed a bug where hotels with expired (i.e. not currently active) activities would still appear in the list.
- Fixed a bug where a purchase wouldn’t reload the store screen so it was sometimes hard to tell if the credit applied properly.
- Fixed a bug on iPad where if you visited subsequent hotels in the same session, only the first hotel would have an accurate map header.
- Increased the frequency which restaurant open/closed status is computed to ensure that recently updated/downloaded restaurants show properly when you filter to ‘Only Open’.
- Updated the nearby screen to detect if you have disabled Location Services to both give you a note about it and also not to show invalid (i.e. 0 feet) distances.
- Made an adjustment so VegasMate is more likely to welcome you to Vegas when you *arrive*, not as you’re leaving. Sorry I made some people sad.
- Added some new internal support tools to help us help you if you run into trouble.
- Fix for a problem where checking for a previously subscribed version would not update the UI right away.
Used to be Good
Joining the long list of Apps that want more $$$ from you after your purchased it.
Also, annoyingly sets up an always-on geofence (constantly using GPS) even when the app is closed.
Paid for original version. Now they want you to pay again. Not worth it at all. Most content reviews are outdated
