Great event, terrible app
You would think that an event that celebrates technology and innovation would have a cutting edge app that helped people get the most from Maker Faire, but that's where you'd be wrong. It's not easy to share or invite friends to sessions (email is dated & clunky), it's not easy to find booths of makers and companies, it's not even easy to find the sessions and workshops you want to attend. It feels like a betrayal of the culture.
Still needs help
This app is reasonable for the schedule of events but is useless for finding booths. It really should have an exhibitor list and be able to show the exhibitor on the map - and your gps location. It could make the app much more useful
The best version yet, but still lacks basic functionality like login accounts, live maps and syncing across devices. Helpful, but could be so much better.
