It was better last year
Last year I was able to write a small mini-review in Notes after every film. It was wonderful and helped to keep the 40 films I saw at SXSW straight and fresh in my memory. This year I discovered that there was a maximum # of characters allowed and I really couldn't write more than a couple of sentences. Also, the software would suddenly "snap out" on my iPad (crash?) and I would lose everything I had written. I had to quit the whole thing.
The only way to do SXSW.
This app will save you having to populate your regular calendar and will keep you up to date on your selected meetings. It updates often to reflect changes. Leave the paper catalog behind in your hotel room!
Ok app, annoying "rate me" nag alerts.
The app works fine, much better than previous years when it used to have serious issues. But I'm rating it two stars because the repeated nag alerts insisting that you write a review about it are annoying. Apps that do that should get low ratings until developers learn that that isn't ok.
