Ratings and Reviews
The app contains a lot of super useful info. It’s also unreliable. It crashes a lot. It occasionally freezes for several seconds at a time, sometimes mid-scroll. When you task switch to the app it will appear to be functional but nothing on the screen will work for several seconds. I’ve developed mobile apps; this is amateur hour.
When it’s not suffering from technical problems, the app is exhibiting usability issues. It makes it a chore to share your schedule with friends, and every year you have to recreate your friends list from scratch.
Every year the main menu becomes harder to use. A few years ago they replaced the text labels on the nav bar with tiny icons that don’t mean anything. This year the main menu is white on a grey background; not high contrast enough to be easily read on a tiny screen in bright sunlight.
Last December Apple briefly tried banning low-effort templated apps. This app is a prime example of why.
Good App, needs improvements
This is a really indispensable app for all con attendees, but unfortunately it has a lot of problems, including the fact that it crashes constantly. Some improvements might be color coding the schedule, for example all Hilton events could be blue or something. As for the con itself, it's a wonderful experience! I would suggest adding a theatre track and a history track.
Necessary but frustrating
Dragoncon is a tough place to get cell reception. Having the app update in the foreground instead of the background is beyond aggravating. If I need to get to a map or see my schedule, I don’t want to have to wait for the update.
Also the “show more” link is terrible, I missed a bunch of stuff because I thought some guests only had 2 things. If I click on a guests page I want to see all the stuff they are doing, there is no other reason for their page to exist.
