Time To Burn
By Terry Grossman Consulting
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Want to know how long until the burn?
Want to know what to do once you get there?
This is the electronic version of the "What Where When Guide" that I have wanted ever since I started going to the playa in 2001. This version of the app includes a built-in snapshot of the Playa Events Calendar, and allows you to browse, sort, and search through it in a variety of ways, even without a network or internet connection.
We have been working with Rockstar Librarian to include her complete guide to DJ's and performances on the Playa. Available in-app as soon as it's finished (late August)
The Black Rock City map is now GPS aware, and can be used to locate yourself in the city, and get guidance to various locations.
If you have suggestions about how to make the app better, I would love to hear them. The majority of the enhancements and upgrades in this version were suggested by the burningman community.
I hope you find the app useful, it's my gift to BRC.
What's New in Version 2015.3
Two Major Bugfixes
Events were being added to the user's 2014 calendar, instead of 2015. Thanks Max for finding this! Fixed.
The database update module was crashing instead of updating the database. This has been fixed.
Changes and Additions
About 50% of registered camps have placed themselves on burnermap.com, and that data is now available in the app. The 'official' data will be made available for the remaining camps once the BMORG embargo is lifted.
The pages that display content from the official website now verify connectivity first.
The checklist page now allows you to hide/display the section index (shown on the right side of the screen), by swiping left and right on a section header.
Map system has been greatly simplified along with the pin system. Map pins can now be added for a camp when looking at the camp information. Same for artwork.
Added an off-line mapping correction system, that will allow the app to improve locating camps and artwork.
App screen now includes credits and much more release information.
Bugfixes and tweaks
*Several iPad related dialog bugs were fixed.
*Homescreen GUI changed to make scrollable tabs more obvious
*Tweet screens cleaned up
*Favorites screen moved up to be more prominent. Meh.
*Fixed several iOS 8 related issues.
*Event searching and Music searching required extensive rewrites.
*Map screen almost entirely re-written.
Uninstall Previous Version First and Awesome
If you do not uninstall the previous year's versions first before installing 2015 version then the 2015 version will crash like a drunk, dehydrated sparkle pony. Make notes of your old information since uninstalling the 2014 version will delete the data too. Other than that one little irksome thing it is awesome. This app is the only reason I carry my iPhone in the playa and I'd have been lost a million times without it. So many great features and so much information. Thank you, thank you !!!
Love this app!!
For the search on camps alone 5stars!! Then all the events and rock star lib hook up and the like system, all the cool little details... Is a must for on playa ease!! Works offline pretty great... What wouldn't anyone like? Well some people feel like using tech and connecting out there defeats the purpose of heading out there and also it may impact the immediacy part.. I think this like any tool can be used in ways that benefit the experience. It works for me.. I say give it a try!!
I love this app. As a Greeter at Greeters Camp, lots of people stop and ask for direction. This app was 1000 times easier to use than looking for the printed map...
The app is great the way it is, but if you are looking for things to add for next year...
1) The ability to add camps. Not all camps make it to the printed map or to the game database (or Playa Info)
2) The ability to add events. Again not everything gets added by the borg.
3) In the past the camp location where in the app and to use that information pre-event there was a password to unlock them. I was on playa on the 21st, by the time the event opened my cell service was really crap (surprised it worked at all). It took me a few days to download the database this the info. Just saying.
Keep up the great work!!!
