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.
I've downloaded and tested this app the last 5 years. It was outdated and useless in 2012, and is nothing more than a joke now. There is a reason why there are more 1 star reviews than 4 or 5 star. I really hope Minnesota State fair invests in a real company to create a real app.
VERY poor map feature. The "fun" section of the app lists events from days earlier with no ability to sort to today's events other than to scroll through an incredibly long list. It also lacks any information about parking or shuttle bus options. The app just seems to be lacking a great deal of features and polish that it reasonably should have.
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.
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.
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.
