This app is a disappointment. The first release was not functional to reserve seats and even with the updates it crashes frequently. It was exciting to hear about the new "AI first" mindset at Google, it would have been nice to see this implement something intelligent (e.g. show near by events/activities, stop showing past events in list, etc).
I cannot attend in person. I wish I could filter the sessions with video. All three days are a giant scroll fest. It's hard to compare sessions when you have to scroll up and down this much. I just registered for all just so I can see them in my calendar. This is a great example of how to make a complicated animated UI that makes everything difficult for the user.
Today's update fixed all the problems with the I/O 2017 version of the app! So excited for I/O to start tomorrow!!
The app reservations didn't work. UI/ux is sub par as doesn't auto scroll based on time. And I'm surprised Google didn't use nfc on phones instead to have passes than having to wear this leash around my neck.
"My I/O" takes me to Wednesday morning every time I open the app. So I have to scroll through and find the current time/sessions each time. Very frustrating.
It was pretty good. Little buggy, crashed on resume a lot. But it got the job done.
