What's New in Version 9.3.1

Filters By Badge
Every year it amazes me that such a high-tech savvy event, such as SXSW, is very complicated with being able to see "what I can go to" with the badges or passes I have at my disposal. It should be very simple for me to filter by badge type as well as dates or film/interactive/music events. Otherwise, you have to literally look at the hundreds of individual items only to find out if you can or cannot attend them. This should be a very important thing to add onto the app for all people to use. You may even have more people use it as it would be a one-stop point for checking what to do around town.
Found this app to very buggy. Unexpectedly closes. Schedule scrolling often doesn't respond to touch. Filters reset themselves frequently. The button to close the full screen map falls behind the North orientation on iPhone.
Future request - Realtime updates of remaining capacity at panel sessions; red, yellow, green indicators would be welcome to know whether it's worth going several blocks to get in. Another simple feature would be showing all other sessions at a full venue during that time. If I'm at ACC room 12 and that's full, what else is happening in ACC at that moment (as opposed to knowing what happens before and after in room 12 which is easily accomplished now)
This app really has everything you need. The "on now" feature lets you know what's around you and the profiles of other people in the room! Great for networking, meeting people and finding venues in the madness that is SXSW. The other awesome Peter is the filters which help you find exactly what you're looking for.
