Slow with a side of data loss Marked a bunch of sessions a few days before the event. But everything disappeared a day before the event so I had to do it all again. Also some sessions were missing from my phone but were visible on a friend's phone, and vice versa. Slowness (dropping frames on a note 4) when moving from one view to another. Sometimes considerable lag of >3 seconds. All content was all there and it worked well offline.
Years later and still loving it. Now on the Galaxy S6 without a problem!
Not useful Out of date/inaccurate/lacking info
Not bad New version - at least it works in Lollipop now. It takes three clicks (from the schedule) to see the description of an event - and it's truncated quite short. They either needed a bigger description field or to tell the people writing the descriptions what the limit was! Still, useful. Glad they got it out before the event. Some of the events have a map pointing to locations! There's a notification setup, but it only worked the first time I hit a calendar button - now it doesn't pop up any more.
Jason Kiehne Very difficult to find and download app from Google play store. This app does not come up straight from a Google play store search. And If searched for from a cell phone you won't find it either. The only way we were able to get the app downloaded to our Samsung Galaxy's was to go to the Maker Faire website from a computer and click on the app link and enter play store from that link and added app to our wish list then install to phone. This process is not realistic and should be fix.
Favorites are flaky, map is cluttered It's embarrassing that Make Mag selected such a low quality app to represent Maker Fair. I installed a week before the Bay Area Maker Faire, selected all my fav sessions, only to have them all disappear... Twice it did this. At least they got the map to display now w/o causing the app to crash. However, the map comes up with ALL the Points of Interest turned on by default.
Updates for Maker Faire 2015
