Worst venue app ever! The paper maps were more helpful, and good luck trying to find anything you want to go to. You can't even zoom out or get directions from it! Hopefully at some point there will be an app worth having...but not this year!
It could be so much more I'm sure intentions were good here. It's really just a bad, categorized version of the map. It could have a proper search feature that utilizes keywords so you can search by venue, food, attraction, merch, etc. The app could also use GPS to help you get to whatever it is that your looking for. Maybe next year.
Not as helpful as I had hoped. It seems like it would be so convenient, but it really isn't. I think the paper brochures and map is more helpful. Had higher hopes that it would be improved from last year.
Maps are bad, descriptions are good The maps on the fair app can't be scrolled in out out so it's really difficult to get around the fair while using this map. The descriptions of the foods and sorting is nice to have. 3/5 sorta functions
When I tried to use the search function, the color combination (blue text on a black background) made it impossible to see anything. The text was so small I needed a magnifying glass to see anything. I could not change the text size, nor could I zoom in on the screen to make stuff more easily read. I agree with others, the paper was better. I did notice that the app was good at finding my location and highlighting what was nearby.
2015-Looking it over this year, I realize how weak it is. Too bad this doesn't use gps to locate your position and show you what is near, more useful that alphabetical. It is just a brochure in electronic form, nothing value added. 2014-While this app does give information about the State Fair, on day 12 you have to look through the first 11 days to get to the information. Hopefully next year the development team will have it so current information will be easily accessible.
