Wasted Time and Battery
The "Find Friend" feature only worked intermittently. The map is too small to be useful. Worst of all, it ate up batteries of all our phones so we could not text each other when the gps feature didn't work. The instructions say to "drop a pin" on the map when parking, but we could not do so. Better to get a paper map at the Park and text each other to find. The app seemed to imply that the tickets would be scanned from the phone on the app but they were buried in email--not the barcode version--so I had to spend an extra half-hour at guest services verifying my purchase and getting paper tickets. Preprint your tickets instead.
Great app. Easy to navigate through. Can plan a visit and know what going on that day or even for the month. The only issue is they share a parking lot with a garbage team like the 49ers.
I use it primarily for checking park hours. For that it's great. I'd like to see my current location on the map. It would also be fun to have a daily special pop up on the map with a location, sort of like a mini scavenger hunt.
