What's New in Version 2.1
Minor bug fixes
It Worked. They'll get the bugs out.
For the most part, this app is great. The e-wait list - Thingie needs to get its bugs worked out.
A good part of the e-wait list is being able to link your number to another person's.
I was with my two cousins on 3 different devices. We all entered an e-wait list for the same film at the same time: 1 cousin got #8; another got #28; I didn't even make the cut. But the one cousin who was #8 was able to link me and we all had a better shot at going.
Suggestion: if you're given a high number...say B-25, etc. you should be able to join other wait lists for at least two other films (granted the next e-wait list you're on is also "B-whatever"). This way, you can see if you'll get a better shot at another film without losing your place in the wait list you're already on.
So many people leave the wait list but don't take themselves off. There should be a confirmation prompt you have to answer 15 minutes before the start time to confirm you're ON the list and you're Going to that film.
But this is all part of the process of working the bugs out for the first year of this. Overall, kudos to the designers and implementors of this app.
has worked fine for me
Used it to ewaitlist "I Origins" in SLC and everything worked. You have to be fast and on a good connection. Took me 2 seconds from the end of countdown till successfully getting a number, and I was #21. If there hadn't been some no shows with lower numbers, my number would not have gotten me into the Rose Wagner. I suspect that people who have been frustrated with the ewaitlist had bad connections or were logging on to a local wifi hotspot with difficulty. The map is not as useful as the one you can get through your browser from the Sundance website, but that map erroneously uses the old location for New Frontier from last year instead of correctly placing it at the Gateway at the base of old town at Heber and Main. If the app doesn't go back to the main menu as it should, close it out from the double click of active apps and open it again. I was lucky on the ewaitlist even though I could not have been more on top of it. A second delay in the connection speed will mean missing the movie, if it is has good buzz.
Way better than last year's app
I loved the updates to the app, especially the e-waitlist. I had no problems with it and it had a much more intuitive interface than last year. I especially appreciated being able to link with friends, although it didn't seem to let me choose more than one friend at a time, and I'd also like it to be something I can pre-select. I did have problems buying tickets on the app and ended up having to go to the box office, which was a drag. All-in-all, though, I really appreciated the app and felt that it greatly enriched our experience.
