I just downloaded the app even though I was skeptical from all of the bad reviews. Honestly, I like it. It gets the job done by telling me where the items are at the fair. People are complaining about not having nutritional info, but honestly the food isn’t made the same every time, so that won’t be 100% accurate. Plus, when I go to the fair I expect to eat a lot of calories anyway so that didn’t matter to me too much. Also, yes you can’t search what you want, but for someone who has never gone to the fair they won’t know what to search for. Everything is listed in alphabetical order, so just scroll through to what you are looking for. It isn’t that difficult. Quite accurate from what I saw and I think it deserves 5 stars!!
Needs descriptions of each food item.
You can’t search for exactly what you want but I would say it’s 80% accurate
This is, by far, the best fair app. I love the map especially. Please update the app for 2019 and forever. I miss you!!❤️💚💜
Where did the nutritional information go?
It’s as bad as the other reviewers say: no food descriptions and the map loads but with an error message every time If I was the developer who signed their name to this as “done” I’d be embarrassed.
Will this be updated for ISF 2019?!
No nutritional info. This year I actually care about that. Also whenever I pick a food, the location pops up and so does a message saying that Google maps can’t display correctly and I must click OK. I would rather have out of date info than none at all. Congrats. Now no info at all! Google map thing is fix. Bad news now the only thing that comes up are the adds. What a piece of crap!! Exactly what I would expect from the Register who asks for extra money to deliver more ads on holidays. I’m a fair information volunteer. I rely on this information and tell the people that ask about food to download your app. I start tomorrow and I will tell them definitely do not download. Sad.
Worked at first then quit. Lost the things I saved to favorites.
No food or vendors display after downloading
