I wanted to see what the terms are for the $5 discount at the concession stands when using a Chase card. The notification didn’t provide a link to the terms. Also, when making a “food list,” it would’ve been nice to be able to see where the vendors are located. Mobile ordering would’ve been nice too. I feel if it’s not ready, then there shouldn’t have been a button for it. I do like the notifications for the bands I wanted to see.
I tried using the app this year (2019) and my personal schedule would not save. I almost missed one of the artists I wanted to see because my schedule wouldn’t save in the app and I was forced to use the paper program provided upon entry. Last year, you could save your personal schedule and it would sent notifications when an artist you wanted to see was about to perform. There was no personal connection to the app although we were to log in. Once I registered my wristband it was still asking me to register my wristband. Hopefully it will be better next year!
This app is actually a joke. The schedule view doesn’t work half the time. When it does, it’s for the full schedule, not your personal schedule. If you delete the app or log out, you can’t log back in with your email and password—it says your email wasn’t recognized and then makes you recreate the account and let’s you use the same info you did last time. Seems like they aren’t storing that info anywhere. There’s almost nothing that works well in this app. It’s just a broken, skinned mobile website.
Finding particular food vendors is nearly impossible. The restaurants that work to bring their special dishes and tastes to this should have their own dedicated app. The map is put together like a grade school project. Doesn’t scale easily; snaps back to tiny type and icons all thee time On a small phone this is unreadable. Barely better on a large iPad. They better have the printed brochures when I go in!Espy*88
Keeps crashing, doesn’t always save your lineup. As of Sunday morning you can’t see the Sunday schedule- just the lineup. No way to highlight food and drink options. No way to look back at prior shows you attended. You know your app is poorly designed when it doesn’t work as well as the paper map.
You’d think with all of the tech resources in SF, this app would be good. It’s so bad. Building your schedule doesn’t even tell where the artists are playing. Tapping save, doesn’t save the artist so you have do it multiple times. There’s a hamburger menu for crying out loud, what year is this omg
Easy to add artists to your personal schedule ✅ Schedule *DOES* say which stage the artists are playing on (and sorts them by day of performance & stage)✅ You can even set reminders for the performances ✅ Just wish you could share your schedule with friends, that would truly make this a five star app. All in all- I’m satisfied :)
App is clunky and doesn’t flow smoothly. When viewing artist info, the “Read More” link doesn’t work. This leaves you with some stupid one line of info on artists you’d be interested in learning more about.
Overall pretty good, mainly used for my schedule and it served its purpose for that. The food venue reviews were a great feature, but not enough people used it where it was helpful. Reviewing food with a "yum" doesn't say a whole lot! It would also be great if you could search food by your location. If the app were publicized earlier, it would have been helpful to have playlists for the musicians so you could check out groups that you hadn't heard of. Also seemed like the app wasn't keeping up with twitter (or no one was tweeting anything, which I find hard to believe). Might be nice to streamline the home page and take off the ranger Dave pics, the watch/listen (put that in discover), and wham city since no one was using them.
I remember that they updated the app only just in time for the 2015 festival, but it's now 2 weeks away from the 2016 festival and it would be nice to plan things out in advance. The more attention that is drawn to this issue, the better. So please update ASAP!
This apps got everything you need to navigate outside lands, allows you to pick your favorite bands and puts them all on a list by time and date do you only have to see the bands you like on the schedule. The map is also very detailed. If your going to outside lands i'd suggest you get this for sure!
The "Now Playing" marquee and the vendor map were very useful! However, something with the food vendor review section wasn't working right for me. I posted several reviews but I can't see any of them, and I can't see any new reviews by others. No idea if they were actually posted or if the app just ate them.
2012 will be a great year for outside lands as they continue to improve In every aspect of a festival. Now they updated there ap that allows a smooth interface of where bands will play and what time they will play at. Can't wait to utilize this. Thanks!
This review is mostly about the info it provides. Saw on the website that there is a shuttle from civic center. Paid $15 for the garage and found at the shuttle entrance that I needed a separate ticket for shuttle. I was told that the shuttle ticket was $29 and it was sold out. So i could not take the shuttle . There is no mention on the web page that the shuttle needs ticket! Other music festival I have been like Austin city limit the shuttle is free.
So much well presented info & so much well thought out functionality! The scrolling now playing display, the ease of creating my lineup, the alerts, the grid view, BRAVO! So much better than previous years'!!
I've used the OL app the last 2 years and was excited to see the email it was ready to go for this year. I used it throughout the day to stay organized and I love the Ranger! He's a great face for the festival!
But I'm confused as to why it never updates for the upcoming 2015 festival. it's seems like they should just take down this app if they aren't going to update it. that being said it worked great LAST YEAR
