Great for keeping track of your tickets, but some flaws
This is a good app for keeping track of the shows that you have tickets for.
There are some flaws though.
1 After I have selected tickets to buy, I cannot find any way of putting them in my basket and going back to continue shopping. Instead I have to complete the purchase and then start again.
They charge £0.90 booking fee per ticket, with a maximum of £5.40 per order. Since you are forced to buy shows one at a time, you never get to take advantage of the £5.40 maximum.
2 it doesn't integrate with Calendar. It would be good if it gave you the option to import your booked shows onto your Calendar.
3 minor flaw, but the calendar in the app always opens in July. Annoying, since we are now in August.
Sort these, and it is a ***** app
Excellent and easy to use
Excellent app. Worked very well for me today and yesterday. From deciding which show to watch to buying my ticket took only minutes - very easy and smooth. Love the planner and the search is really fast - even though there are so many things to go and see!!
Doesn't work at all
I downloaded the Festival Fringe app last year and found it very useful. Sadly, this year's offering won't even open on my iPhone (software is up to date)
I get what appears to be a title page and then it closes. I tried deleting the app and then re-installing it, but got the same result. I suppose the only saving grace is that whoever produced this pile of poo didn't have the barefaced cheek to charge money for it. I'd give it no stars, but bizarrely that's not an option.
