It's an app review stupid


Unlike some reviewers who are incorrectly trashing a hugely successful event here based on one nights experience, the actual app is good. It's a simple guide breaking events down so you can see light shows, music and talks with clear information. It's also good to be able to set alerts.

Don't be like some very odd app reviewers, come and get involved in one of the most iconic events throughout the year, in one of the best cities in the world.



I currently live in Chatswood and vivid is working fine. It runs smooooooooothly and I only have 1 request, If We Could Do The S9 Competition OFFLINE. Like To Verify, We Can Take A Picture Of The Thing, And Bam! One More Added. I visited like 17 precincts already, and it only tracked 4! Because I Was Offline! But Other Than That, GOOD JOB!

No map


It says the map is ‘coming soon’ but Vivid is already up and running for a few days now. FAIL!
