Great App - when it works

This App is quick, flexible and user friendly. However it has a major malfunction issue. 4 out of 5 times it replies to my search request ..after a long pause. ... sorry we can't help with your search request. Please check your internet connection.
There is nothing wrong with my internet connection. There is something wrong with the App..
Sort this out and I'll give it five stars without hesitation.


App review

The app does not work on my iPad 3. Better off using the website. Never had an app before that does not work so this one seems to have a problem. Gave one star only because system does not allow zero. Not surprised there are not enough reviews. No matter how obscure your nickname you get a message saying that the name is already taken.


Terrible app

I had the app in previous years and it was much better! I could see events months in advance so planning was easy. This app just allows up to 28 days maximum! You can search by event name but if you don’t know what’s coming up how can you search for it?!
