Wonderful Idea, Poor Exicution This app was wonderful in giving broad stroke information and helping us plan our trip to TRF. However when we arrived there, the hours on the app did not match the website, the friend finder never actually worked (even at point blank range), the map constantly glitched, there was very minimal vendor information and even less info for finding the shows. We were unable to share the camp location with anyone in our group as well. With a little more work, this app would be a wonderful thing to have.
Pointless app as it is The features that would make it functional don't work. The mapping feature shows jpeg of the Renaissance Festival, but it does not scale and the GPS overlays are completely out of position. It does not have a full listing of all of the shops and restaurants. You cannot buy tickets with it. All in all it doesn't really serve a function. The FriendFinder would be a nice feature if it worked. My family got separated, and it would have been great if I could use this app to find them.
Great idea, poor execution This app did help a bit in planning our trip to TRF. That being said... Friend finder does not work. Map glitches and does not display properly. Little to no information on vendors and shows. All vendors are not listed. Camp locator does not allow members in your group to see the icon on the map. Hours for both the campground and the faire itself don't match the website. We still had an amazing first experience at TRF, but we could not rely on this app to navigate.
Great idea, terrible execution The app works better than it did last year, but it still has glitches, the most frustrating of which is the gps being constantly off of the map. Every time I try to use the map function from inside faire, it shows me far outside. All other mapping programs that use gps are accurate to within a few feet so I know it isn't my phone. Please correct in the next update. Also, update the locations of the free standing booths to match their current locations.
Pretty worthless Map didn't have any correlation to where we were during the day. Markings for different stores never lined up with map. Entries for entertainment didn't have what stage they were on. That was just what I tried before giving up on the app.
Great for seasoned rennies and townies alike This is great to help you not only find shows and shops you are looking for, but also helps find people in your group have might have wandered off to follow the barbarian wine wearing chainmail bikinis.
