Minor Bug Fixes.
I recently moved to WA/JBLM and when I found out I was PCSing here, I downloaded the app immediately. The facilities and map function is great - I was relayed that information to my spouse so we have an idea of what do when we arrive. Being lost on an installation is all too easy when its new to you and your family. I highly recommend this app.
Staying up to date on events is great, but I would like to see push notifications and any promotions pushed through the app. This MWR is always doing pretty cool things and I think the app would be a great way of keeping everyone informed as it all happens.
A good idea...
But poorly executed. The biggest thing this app is missing is a search function rendering it almost useless. On top of that, things are poorly organized. I found Carey theater under "other" instead of "recreation" and for some reason McChord theater was nowhere to be found. Several times I've used this app to try to help me find locations I was looking for and it never helped me once. From searching for the thrift shop to finding theaters where NCOPD was being held, it's fallen short every time. A huge disappointment.
I am always on the go and multi-tasking! This app helps me make reservations, find locations and keep up-to-date with MWR events. If you are new to JBLM this is a must have! I would like to see a share feature that allows me to share the JBLM MWR app with my contacts. Great job MWR!
