The fact that almost every review says the same things and they haven't made the changes in years is just sad. Needs a much better map, should have options to rate each food option that way you can sort based on reviews. It's almost a good for nothing app.
An embarrassment. Do fair organizers really think this is an adequate app?? Echoing almost every other reviewer, map needs to have a zoom and all-direction scrolling feature. There have been no changes to this app in the 3 years I've downloaded. How shameful for the 2nd largest state fair in the country.
Zoom! This app has failed for years without a zoom in/out function on the map. I use this only to find the new foods/beers to try, then use the paper map they give you at the fair entrances. An intuitive map will make this go from 1 star to 5 stars.
This app does lag, and yes it would be nice to have a zoom function. It is perfect for what it is. I especially like being able to star things, and have them show up on the map! It makes things much easier. Much more useful than pulling out a paper map, I'm probably checking my phone anyway.
My original review was 2012. 2017 NOTHING has changed in terms of quality of this app. Does anyone from the Fair look at these reviews? So slow...would have been so much easier to be able to look at paper brochure. Only thing I ended up using it for was the "you are here" tag on the map. Other wise, even to search a map, I looked at the full view paper map more.
Can't zoom map, can barely scroll across map, can't find vendors on map, can only search by exact vendor name, can't jump to specific day/time so you have to scroll for literally minutes to get to the current time for entertainment schedule, doesn't use GPS. Basically completely useless app. Could be soooo much better.
