Same issues as always
I’m new to NAB, but from reading reviews of the app it appears it still has most of the same issues as previous years. The MOST annoying one being you have to sit through the splash screen EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. you open or switch to the app. If I already have it open and am just switching to the app, I shouldn’t have to sit through this every time. I want to make a quick glance at my agenda to see what room I need to find or where an exhibit is. This causes so much wasted time standing and waiting for the app to load. It also never goes back to where you were before you switched away from the app last, so you have to navigate back to where you were. If I had my schedule up last time, take me back to it. The exhibit hall maps? Take me back to those. The app is a necessity, but a very aggravating one.
Better than nothing? Maybe, for some...
I installed this on April 17th and am unable to log into the myNAB account I setup more than a month ago. In looking thru the app I find it VERY disappointing! Running on an iPad Mini the 3D map is hard to use and you can't use it full screen, there is always a somewhat useless list of vendors taking up the left 3rd of the screen, like a vestigial organ. If I want a list of vendors to search thru I'd prefer to call it up rather then having it taking up valuable screen real estate ALL the time! The names of the vendors start showing up on the booths as you pinch-zoom, but are hard to read and in some cases the names never become more than a disjointed series of dots and lines on the smaller booths (note I said smaller, and not smallest, yeah it's that bad).
This app looks like it was put together by people who have NEVER attended a trade show and show a general lack of understanding of the trade show experience! Yeah, they certainly met the bullet list of features, but what good are these features if they don't relate to the real world? What's the use in planning with a tool that then fails for executing that plan??
And then what little serviceability this app has is hobbled by not being able to see the booth names and not being able to log into the myNAB account.
Let's hope they do better next year...
I used the hell outta the app this week!!
I mean I get what the guy is saying about the map being not very useful & very poor considering that it is a tech driven convention, but you have to utilize your critical thinking skills a little bit more efficiently to use the map effectively to help you get around and navigate the ginormousness that is NAB. I also felt that this being my second year to the convention helped me navigate to the see the guest speakers I wanted to see. I mainly used this app to schedule the talks and all the teaching sessions I wanted to see as well as all the guest speakers that I wanted to sit in on, and for that the app was a tremendous amount of help!!
