VegasMate is great
by md329 on 2018/12/23 18:37
Excellent for traveling to Vegas. My favorite part is the ability to find restaurants by location. It tells you what’s nearby, what’s open, and usually has a link to the menu.

VegasMate
by HawkinBama on 2018/07/15 15:08
Awesome App!! I use VegasMate to put together a list of places I want to visit in Vegas. The App gives great info regarding hours and menus for restaurants as well as great maps to know where you are going. The app creator, Hunter, has put together a great place to help people who love Las Vegas love it even more. Hunter is awesome.
Great App
by jwg7979 on 2017/10/14 19:22
Very easy to use, great for planning trips, and definitely set up well.
Great guide
by mandolinlistener on 2017/07/22 05:20
Super helpful! Great tool!!
It's a start. But that's it.
by Bassplant on 2016/05/07 04:22
Ok. But where are many of the maps?! It's missing way too many maps. Like The Cosmopolitan, MGM, etc.....
Best by far
by Wife is relieved on 2016/02/26 19:18
This is the only app for Vegas that you need. I go to LV 2-3 times a year so I know if information is up to date, and this app is. For a Vegas greenhorn, you can read reviews and really get a feel for what you want to do, or where you'd like to stay, while avoiding the rip offs (like cabbies taking you through the tunnel to get to the south strip). Also functions great - never had a glitch in 2 years of using it. Download. You won't regret it.
Great guide!
by middleclassbuzz2015 on 2016/02/05 22:14
The only Vegas guide you'll need.
Great
by shovelups on 2016/01/29 02:23
A lot of info and features. Heard out this app on Vegas Gang & Five Hundy By Midnight podcasts
Great Info
by NoOneNow on 2016/01/19 00:53
I download this app before every trip to Vegas, lots of great info to make getting around Vegas and planning your trip easier & more enjoyable
Great app!!
by Lucy113 on 2015/10/01 02:19
I love this app! I especially love the cab check feature!! Thanks Hunter! Keep up the great work!!!
Best app for real Vegas reviews
by enjoyable podcast on 2015/09/26 12:51
Not written by the PR people, just others who have the app and use it. Very well done an updated every time I open it for new places to stay/play/eat
Vegasmate!
by DM49323 on 2015/07/15 09:34
Time is precious when visiting Vegas - don’t waste it with at lame places - With Vegasmate on my phone, I can make plans on the fly and look like a Vegas expert to my friends.
Disappointed
by Maryankees on 2015/06/08 23:33
I renewed this app since it worked so well last year. Very disappointed that the dining section has so many old reviews that were worthless. Also the distance did not work. Every restaurant was 0 feet away and within walking distance.
Doesn't work!
by PookyTukus on 2015/05/24 07:39
I get to the Permissions black screen and nothing else. Can't use app. Waste of time.
One man's personal and outdated opinion
by Kc talent on 2015/03/21 17:09
This "app" covers only about 20% of Vegas, is loaded with one man's personal, arrogant opinion and incredibly outdated. Photos of one hotel that isn't even in Vegas! Quotes from a 15 year old book on guide to gambling. Found more information on TripAdvisor in less than 5 minutes. Will programmers from a real research media group ever create a Vegas Guide app worthy of the potential millions of downloads it would get? "Play by TR" is the best I have ever seen, but clearly only caters to Ceasars customers. VegasMate is a complete joke and you are an idiot if you ever PAY to "expand your options" in this pathetic excuse for an app that simply got lucky with a catchy name.
Highly frustrating!
by L£af on 2015/03/10 03:32
I have made 3 attempts to download this app and each other time I have reached a screen stating Permissions. It's a black screen and that's it. Freakin' frustrated!
Trip planning
by fakdknskcj on 2014/12/09 07:54
So far works well !!!
Good data, but slow.
by Kolkane on 2014/11/01 15:03
It a good app for Vegas stuff, but the app is slow when scrolling. And why do I get ads? I paid for this app a while ago!
Great app for trips to my favorite city
by ErikMHummel on 2014/11/01 14:59
Useful features to help both with trip planning in advance of a trip and also help find things while in Vegas.
Vegas Mate
by JJR2013 on 2014/10/23 20:10
The best Las Vegas app, Has everything you need and more, I'm so glad I have this app ,It keeps me update on everything in Vegas as we all know it changes all the time, Thanks Again
Great app
by Piasared on 2014/10/04 17:15
I love this app. I have been using Vegas Mate for about 3 years and now can't really use anything else. much prefer the reviews of users to that of the hotels telling me how great or bad the hotels/shows/restaurants with 0 PR BS. Very stable and with a huge amount of info and pictures, I can't recommend this App enough.
Always updated!!!
by Carroll from MO on 2014/10/02 03:48
How does this app have "only" a 4 star rating- it is totally 5 star all the way- I have this app in my iPhone - iPod touch- and iPad- and love it on all Apple devices. The constant updates that Hunter puts out makes this the most have Vegas app for any apple person!
Fantastic reference for Vegas newbies
by HesTheATrain on 2014/08/06 16:25
This app is extremely useful for people visiting Vegas for the first time, and still useful on my 21st time!
The best Vegas tourist app. Period.
by RulesLawyerNW on 2014/07/05 18:35
Best.
Just ok.
by Alecia0917 on 2014/05/15 04:15
Great concept, but missing a lot of information. The attractions section is sparse and the overall look is boring. Also more pictures would be helpful.
Awful
by bridell on 2014/04/30 11:34
Do not waste your time
Used to be Good
by CrayzeeGuy on 2014/03/10 21:33
Joining the long list of Apps that want more $$$ from you after your purchased it. Also, annoyingly sets up an always-on geofence (constantly using GPS) even when the app is closed.
Stay away
by Bobbyb65787 on 2014/02/23 23:00
Paid for original version. Now they want you to pay again. Not worth it at all. Most content reviews are outdated
Consistently great
by Pokervixen on 2014/02/22 03:02
This app is always getting updated with the latest Vegas info which is amazing in a city that changes so much and so often. New versions seem to be well tested and customer service is great. You can tell there is a love of Vegas built into this app. I wish it existed for other cities.
Crashes will not open
by Snoopy's Mom 3506 on 2014/02/13 00:44
Used to love this but crashes and never opens. Have reinstalled to no avail.
Great, GREAT App!
by Tonysnyder on 2013/12/04 02:00
This app is fantastic! Even if you 'like', not "love" Vegas, you're going to enjoy this app! Restaurant menus and their hours, reviews of the hotel, rooms, amenities and all casinos makes this app a must have from newbies to Vegas experienced old timers!
Best Vegas App Available
by MarkandKeren on 2013/11/16 17:08
Truly the most complete app about Vegas available and getting better all the time. Perfect for newbies and frequent visitors. Don't know how I ever got around Vegas without it.
Garbage
by Magic_Ninja on 2013/10/20 15:28
Don't waste your time. Has a "subscription" service for updates. Give me a break. Can get this information from other places without the subscription and fake reviews on places. This is just a scam to get more money by the developers.
love it
by keith2728 on 2013/10/15 18:13
I have used VegasMate for years, this new update is the best ever. Even as a veteran Vegas visitor i find it indispensable in my trip preperation.
Disappointing
by srscotty on 2013/10/14 02:40
After hearing about this app on one of the Vegas podcasts I listen to. I didn't even wait to read reviews before purchasing it. The app has potential but it seems that all of the features I have looked at are at least 10 months old! The Vegas news is current, but reviews, pictures, shows, etc are all outdated. Even the recent update section is three months old. Please catch up!!!
Apparently a Scam App - Useless
by JimM111 on 2013/10/09 17:18
This app provides little useful information and instead just continues to show the same web link for most requests. Useless. When updating the database as the app wants to do immediately, I believe this app is copying your contact information, since all the scant information is still both very general and as others have indicated, out of date. This is most likely a scam application.
Worst travel App ever
by Chicago sports fan22222222 on 2013/10/07 01:53
Omg, this app could not be more worthless. When searching for rooms with this app, it quoted me rates such as "$900 average rate at tropicanA". Obviously that is totally wrong, as was every single hotel rate they quoted. They must be averaging all of the rates, including suites, which is worthless to me. Every hotel rate is going to look expensive if you lump in the fancy suite rates. Seriously, worthless app. Just google Las Vegas instead, or ask a friend whose been to vegas. Awful app!
Junk
by buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzy on 2013/09/13 01:38
Don't waste money or time on this.
Best Vegas App Ever!
by Code19Killer on 2013/08/23 01:56
I love this app! It's so helpful every time I am planing a Vegas trip and even better when you get there. It's always being updated so no information is out of date. Worth every cent you pay for it.
Lots of great info
by Lepp. on 2013/08/18 14:09
Lots of great info, even for a Vegas regular. Lots of updates too--always seems up to date with the ever changing/evolving Vegas scene. Recommended!
Great app
by norberg2006 on 2013/08/11 05:17
We use it every trip to Vegas
Fantastic Vegas app at a reasonable price!
by BlueMonday1974 on 2013/07/31 03:31
Vegas Mate is a fantastic Vegas app at a very reasonable price. I use it every time I go to Vegas and also to help plan my trip there. Keep up the good work!!
NOT STABLE
by Aida Garcia on 2013/07/04 01:54
This app crashes constantly. Too difficult to use with the constant crashing.
Really great
by Jased on 2013/06/17 18:14
Vegas Mate, Vegas Mate, it's really great!
Best Vegas app ever
by Crashoveridethe on 2013/06/07 05:59
Title says it... Maps news, reviews, lists this app has it all.
Great Aid
by Windy Wyoming on 2013/05/05 16:15
I've travelled to Vegas annually for a conference for several years and can't believe how much I used this app on my recent trip. Great info. You won't be disappointed.
Lots of great info!
by How are all my nicknames taken on 2013/05/04 01:47
This is a great app! I basically use it to brainstorm plans for upcoming trips. When I read or hear about a place, I look it up on Vegas Mate and dump it into my upcoming trip. Then when it comes to the planning stage, I sift through my brainstorming to see which things I want to make time for. The app also has lots of great articles, and I find it especially useful to be able to see restaurants' menus and hours. Thanks!
Best app for planning a Vegas trip
by John1952 on 2013/04/25 03:48
Vegas Mate has it all. Hotel reviews, attraction info, restaurant menus with reviews, menus, and in many cases prices. Always very helpful.
Highly Addictive!
by Zuke on 2013/03/24 21:35
I have gone back again and again as I anticipate my upcoming trip to Las Vegas. Endlessly useful, with reviews, pics and the best part...the trip planner that you can save your restaurants, shows and other to-do's and wants. I keep all my confirmation numbers in there and add bars, clubs, etc that I want to remember checking out. Great up dates too! Simply awesome for Vegas lovers!
Great app but..
by twosey on 2013/03/20 19:20
Read the news section every day, but recently has been flooded with random, unrelated, boring articles from the LVRJ. What gives?
It's fine
by Lennythelethal on 2013/02/08 03:39
A bit confusing to me but overall it's fine. Similar information is available on the reviews for free
The best Vegas travel guide
by middleclassbuzz on 2013/01/30 14:30
The best Vegas travel app, period. Worth every cent.
Love. This. App.
by Cnov1980 on 2013/01/24 03:46
After moving here this was my bible. Tell anyone and everyone visiting or relocating to Vegas to download this app. They stay on top of updates - as this is an ever changing city - and I love that when I pickup or drop off at the airport I get a message wishing me luck and telling me "We love you." Back at ya!
Great app!!!!
by Johanna66 on 2013/01/23 20:37
This app is awesome it has it all reviews , menus , tips, and news !! I have used it for years worth the money !!!
Love the menus
by MZCLVR on 2012/12/27 20:06
I really like the convenience of having all of the information in one place.
Must-have app if you want a great Vegas experience
by TIavEN on 2012/12/27 00:01
Used VegasMate extensively throughout my last trip to Vegas. Extremely helpful app full of useful information on hotels, restaurants, etc. I wanted to focus on dining this trip, and the exhaustive restaurant list, as well as the menus, hours, and prices were all super helpful in finding top notch places that I would otherwise not have encountered or considered. My trip was definitely much better thanks to this app. If you're really looking to have an enjoyable Vegas experience, this app is a must-have. I used it all throughout my trip, and it made for a much better trip--perhaps my best trip (out of 30+) yet. Definitely worth the price.
A Rare Can't Miss App
by jerrydice on 2012/11/21 01:55

Very detailed info that is kept up to date.
Vegas Mate
by Horroroom on 2012/09/17 14:08
If you go to L.V. For the 1st time or you go once a week you need this App. Just Get it Tony
Good app
by GotStaks on 2012/09/07 10:01
Aesthetically pleasing, navigation could be easier.
Great app
by JonesVR on 2012/09/02 09:42
Really impressed with this app. Lots of great info.
Love it...
by Firemanmoe on 2012/08/14 00:19
Hunter addressed my problem ASAP (with in hours)... LOVE its "Vegasy Goodness." GREAT AP ALL AROUND!!!
The best
by Wilga on 2012/07/26 01:32
Travel app I've seen. I've been to lv 6 x and this shows me stuff I've never even knew about. Fun too. Love the property and restaurant descriptions. Great job guys.
Bravo
by Dr. Bertz on 2012/07/13 17:46
Excellent resource. Five stars. A Vegas requirement.
Vegas Mate
by Toicat on 2012/07/05 21:54
Solid application. Good information that is updated frequently. I really like the hotel & restaurant reviews. Most of the restaurant information guides have their menu with current pricing included in the description. Easy to navigate, current information, what more do you need?
Excellent planning app for Vegas trips
by Anthony Knakal on 2012/07/04 15:00
Vegas Mate is thorough and easy to use, providing information on hotels, restaurants, and attractions in Las Vegas. It is a great help in keeping track of plans for upcoming trips. Highly recommended!
VEGAS (MATE) Baby!!!
by Missypix on 2012/06/30 15:16
Thank you, guys for updating! This app is indispensable for LV and makes the trip so much easier! The tips are MAJORly helpful!
IS REALLY GREAT!!!
by CraigKellogg on 2012/06/29 03:23
By far the best travel app I own. And I have every Vegas and Disney app in the store. The iCloud between the iPad and iPhone works awesome. I can't imagine planning a Vegas trip without this now...
Great App!
by SidVicious79 on 2012/06/29 02:47
Not sure what's up with that other review… I don't think he understands how location works on the iPhone. The app uses geofences - those don't use the GPS at all and are very low power. I've been using Vegas Mate for a long time - there are content updates every month to keep things current but you can ignore them if you want. Don't you want the most up-to-date Vegas info? Anyway, great app. Love it!
No good
by Burgman412 on 2012/06/28 19:18
I can't believe I spent the money on this. Not worth it. Plus the thing runs the gps when not using it. Had to delete the app to get rid of it. It always asked me for these huge updates every time I used it.
Best Vegas App available
by VegasFan11 on 2012/06/19 05:30
This is best Vegas app out there. It puts all other Vegas apps to shame. Keep up the good work.
Best Vegas app out there
by Hank and Jr. on 2012/06/10 21:46
A definate must for Vegas visitors, informative and very easy to use.
Usefull
by JmsJms7 on 2012/05/31 18:08
I found this useful, especially the user reviews. It did not quite meet my expectations, I found my Fodor's book more helpful. I liked this enough to add some of my reviews to the app.
Love VegasMate
by Olive Vegas on 2012/05/11 00:40
I don't know how anyone can go to Vegas or plan their trip without this app - hell I don't know how I did it before! This app has helped me plan my trip and I'm loving the countdown feature. Love ya Vegas mate - you're really great!
Crash!
by Venessa74 on 2012/04/29 01:43
It's just not there yet
Thanks!
by Sláinte on 2012/04/20 15:35
Worked really well on my trip! 1 example: My wife was hungry, so we opened up the app and found a restaurant using the "nearby" feature. It was cool. Was helpful in many ways. Love the iPad version!!!!!! Thank you Vegas Mate!
Great app
by Waznis on 2012/04/11 05:27
Great app! Love it!
So buggy
by jetsetguy01 on 2012/03/21 17:31
Constant minor software updates, and so many internal database updates that use data and bandwidth, gets tiresome. After crashing and two reinstalls, got the app to run. But "expert" itineraries that cost 99 cents each for what's basically just a list of places you could go. Not worth the money, very little worthwhile content that would actually help me pick where to go right now in Vegas.
Waste of 2 dollars
by Nikkiwhittier on 2012/03/19 04:19
Couldn't find what I wanted the hotel we are staying at isn't in app waste of time and money
Great Vegas Application
by 50inVegas on 2012/03/18 21:31
This is a fantastic Vegas application--both for planning your trip and for after you arrive.
Great Vegas App
by Cnl1489 on 2012/03/07 17:37
Great app! Helped plan many vacations to Vegas
Vegas Mate is Insanely Great
by Jersey Bill on 2012/03/06 03:10
Where do I start… I have been using Vegas Mate to help plan several trips to Vegas over the past couple years - but more importantly to enjoy the limited time I always have in town. This app is intelligently designed to address your Vegas needs before and during the time you hit town - by keeping you up on happenings with the news feed, by helping you to plan a trip and bring together exactly the things you want to fill your time with (you can even plan around things not listed in its very large database of options), and by showing you what's close to you when you are in town and want a food or entertainment option on a moment's notice. So many times I have helped people in Vegas with questions or needs by just whipping out this app and finding the right information for them - whether a phone number or confirmation that the restaurant they want is still open. The main thing that differentiates this app is Hunter who keeps making it better and better with every improvement he can cram in - like the latest "cloud integration" that will share your itinerary between all your Apple devices. It was always a good app - but in the past year it has become a great app. Nothing I know of will help you enjoy your time in Vegas more than this little $2.00 gem. I have collected most of the possible Vegas app guides and resources out there - but nothing comes within a light year of Vegas Mate. My highest recommendation !! Jersey Bill
Awesome App
by Double_D_1900 on 2012/03/03 14:43
Great app. A must have for anyone heading to Vegas. Nuff said.
Perfect.
by Levi E. on 2012/02/27 14:25
No crashes, no lock-ups, no bugs! The perfect Vegas app! I'm going to Las Vegas in June and this is THE DEFINITE app to plan trips and see what there is to do in town! Contains info on every hotel you can think of. 5/5!
Crashes
by Dlaing on 2012/02/21 03:52
I love this app, but now that I've updated my iPhone it will not open, it keeps crashing. The iPad update works fine. Here's a follow up. I sent an email to Vegas Mate and they responded immediately. We have exchanged several emails in the last few minutes and they are checking out the problem. Part of my problem might be that my iPhone is still using iOS 4.2.8 (hate to go through all the hassle I had updating my iPad again on my iPhone). The customer service is GREAT. After working with Hunter at Vegas Mate everything is working fine now. The BEST customer service EVER
A little piece of Vegas in my pocket!
by Tex Kaliber on 2012/02/13 16:08
I'm not a diehard gambler. I do not do the club scene. Spa treatments are not part of my routine. That being said, I am still in love with Las Vegas! We only get out there once a year, but Vegas Mate keeps me posted daily. Sure I use it as a travel guide when I visit Sin City, but I use it a lot more at home when I want to see what's happening at my favorite places. Vegas Mate helps feel more like a local rather than a tourist. This app is money well spent, it is updated frequently and it just keeps getting better.
Great App
by DCR112983 on 2012/02/12 08:50
Love this app! Tons of useful information.
My favorite travel app
by BChevrier on 2012/02/04 17:50
Great app not only for planning my trips but for having in hand while in Las Vegas. This app is kept current with frequent in-app updates. I wish all my travel destinations had an app like this.
Best Vegas App!
by Brian Fey on 2012/02/04 13:48
Just got back Vegas and tried several apps. Vegas Mate, was by far the most complete and comprehensive app. The best feature IMO, is the fact that it shows full menus and hours for each place. I even made some dinner reservations from the app itself. This app is a easy buy when you look at all the time if saves.
Worthless.... Don't buy!
by Adam R Winfield on 2012/02/02 08:23
Terrible app. Use Yelp for free to get better reviews and restaurant ideas. If you want an itinerary for a "bachelor weekend" pay another dollar. I wouldn't even use this if it were free.
Please add maps
by RMC4571 on 2012/01/28 14:56
Good app for basic info, but I can't find a Vegas app that has everything. Please add MAPS of strip and downtown with google maps compatibility. Also casino floor maps would be awesome. I currently have a separate apps for those features. If this app had those features it would be my one go to Vegas App.
Don't leave home without it...
by Rkitson on 2012/01/24 02:09
My brother's bachelor party could not have gone smoother thanks to VegasMate.
It's really great!
by Whiskey & tails on 2012/01/24 00:47
When planning your Vegas trip it's ideal to have a few things planned. Inevitably your forget that piece of paper at home and miss out... Not anymore with Vegasmate. Necessity for trip planning!
New Update is tops!
by vajohna on 2012/01/22 21:18
I'm a resident of Las Vegas who frequents the Strip and this app has helped me make dinner and show reservations on a weekly basis. For all of your dining, shows, clubs - VegasMate is it! Try out the 'Killer Views' in-app option, it's rad.
Great!!!!
by Bonesoup on 2012/01/22 16:47
We Used This When We Were In Vegas And It Works Great!!! It Tells You How Far You Are From Things...We Were At MGM Grand And Wondered Where To Eat ...You Can Bring Up All The Places To Eat There And Look At Reviews To See Which Ones Are The Best...it's also always being updated...
Crashes
by tdi10-4wd on 2012/01/22 04:48
Probably would be 5 star if the new update didn't constantly crash on my iPad 1..... hint, hint.
Keeps getting better

Without a doubt, the best Las Vegas info source gets better with every update. The developer is one of the foremost Las Vegas observers and experts. There is no more accurate and up to date source for Las Vegas information.
VegasMate
by HawkinBama on 2018/07/15 15:08
Awesome App!! I use VegasMate to put together a list of places I want to visit in Vegas. The App gives great info regarding hours and menus for restaurants as well as great maps to know where you are going. The app creator, Hunter, has put together a great place to help people who love Las Vegas love it even more. Hunter is awesome.
VegasMate is great
by md329 on 2018/12/23 18:37
Excellent for traveling to Vegas. My favorite part is the ability to find restaurants by location. It tells you what’s nearby, what’s open, and usually has a link to the menu.
Great App
by jwg7979 on 2017/10/14 19:22
Very easy to use, great for planning trips, and definitely set up well.
Great guide

Vegas Mate is Insanely Great
by Jersey Bill on 2012/03/06 03:10
Where do I start… I have been using Vegas Mate to help plan several trips to Vegas over the past couple years - but more importantly to enjoy the limited time I always have in town. This app is intelligently designed to address your Vegas needs before and during the time you hit town - by keeping you up on happenings with the news feed, by helping you to plan a trip and bring together exactly the things you want to fill your time with (you can even plan around things not listed in its very large database of options), and by showing you what's close to you when you are in town and want a food or entertainment option on a moment's notice. So many times I have helped people in Vegas with questions or needs by just whipping out this app and finding the right information for them - whether a phone number or confirmation that the restaurant they want is still open. The main thing that differentiates this app is Hunter who keeps making it better and better with every improvement he can cram in - like the latest "cloud integration" that will share your itinerary between all your Apple devices. It was always a good app - but in the past year it has become a great app. Nothing I know of will help you enjoy your time in Vegas more than this little $2.00 gem. I have collected most of the possible Vegas app guides and resources out there - but nothing comes within a light year of Vegas Mate. My highest recommendation !! Jersey Bill
Essential App for your Vegas Trip!
by txbrit70 on 2010/07/02 03:52
Have an iPhone or iPad? going to Vegas? Then you need this App, End of Story. Taking advantage of the ability to pinpointe your Location, Not Only does it contain all the vital info on Hotels/Shows and Food, in the latter case it will also tell you if that place is open right now. It was a great saver for us, when it came the the magic question, "so what so we want to eat now?". On more than one occassion it came up with answers on where, what food type and if it was any good! Wether you are a first time vistor, or Like myself, who has lost count of the number of times he has been, with Ratings, Price Points and Peer Reviews, you will find it an essential companion to your visit, hey its even good for planning beforehand
Cute but no cigar
by Las Vegas Guru on 2008/09/01 23:03
This is a great idea that just does not work. It is set up to be manually updated. They can take your money now and lose interest anytime. The database is already far behind the times. For instance there are 2 Arizona Charlies and they only mention one. The Southpoint restaurant listing is well over a year old. And on and on and on. Correcting these two examples will not make it right. If they do not have their stuff together now, how can they expect to provide a consistantly good product with updates in a town that is constantly changing. The Arizona Charlies mistake is missing a casino/hotel that is over 20 years old. You can pick almost any casino that you are very familiar with and find that this app falls very short. I would pay $25 for this program if it were accurate and useful. Today I find it overpriced since the magazines and pamphlets you find on every corner are more accurate. I wish it worked. It has features that would be useful. I can not imagine them ever catching up. If they did, keeping it updated just isn't going to happen. Don't waste your money.
Missing a lot but still could be useful
by Kevin Crossman on 2008/11/30 22:41
The concept behind the app is sound, and in practice could be quite useful. When we wanted to eat a buffet but found the line too long, the app was very helpful at noting the closest restaurants including other buffets. The Tips section is useful and (where present) the editorial reviews are good. Now, this app is missing a lot of things - most of which are stronger descriptions and more editorial and reader reviews. As such, the $5 price is borderline. The maps don't really have a great view of how large the casinos actually are, and floorplans would be even more helpful. An ability to sort restaurants by type (buffet, steak, etc.) or by rating/cost would be most helpful. Still, the app did save us a couple times on our most recent trip. So if you're going to Vegas this is hardly the worst $5 you'll throw at your trip.
Must-have app if you want a great Vegas experience
by TIavEN on 2012/12/27 00:01
Used VegasMate extensively throughout my last trip to Vegas. Extremely helpful app full of useful information on hotels, restaurants, etc. I wanted to focus on dining this trip, and the exhaustive restaurant list, as well as the menus, hours, and prices were all super helpful in finding top notch places that I would otherwise not have encountered or considered. My trip was definitely much better thanks to this app. If you're really looking to have an enjoyable Vegas experience, this app is a must-have. I used it all throughout my trip, and it made for a much better trip--perhaps my best trip (out of 30+) yet. Definitely worth the price.
Invaluable tool
by rangerkeeper on 2011/10/16 05:30
Update: The new version (2.6.1) is great! Runs noticeably faster and still all the great content. Still the premier Vegas application with the perfect blend of crowed-sourcing and expert commentary. Keep up the fantastic work! Vegas Mate has always been a useful tool, but the new content in 2.5 makes it absolutely invaluable. Steve Freiss (of the New York Times and The Strip Podcast) knows more about Las Vegas than anyone and his commentary is fresh, funny, an totally helpful. The gps based features are fun, but I also can't wait to read up on my next flight out to the Sin City. With so many options in Vegas, the cost of this app is totally worth it in making a good trip great!
One of, if not, the best Las Vegas resource out there.
by Simondsm on 2011/10/12 15:01
A couple of years ago, a career change now requires me to visit Las Vegas every year for a convention, and with that, I was instantly transformed into a HUGE Las Vegas fanboy. I am very much an iPhone addict, and started to search for podcasts and apps related to Las Vegas. Simply put, this is one of my favorite apps on my iPad and iPhone. Hunter is that friend with all sorts of Vegas related information you wish you had, and he makes that possible with a great app. I cannot even begin to tell you how much this app has helped me. I can walk into a casino for the first time, and already have a great backstory, where to eat, what to do, what not to do… Las Vegas can get very expensive, or it can be very cheap, and Vegas Mate helps me out greatly. If you visit Las Vegas on a regular basis, this app is A MUST. If I ever had the chance to meet Hunter, I would have to shake his hand, and buy him a beer. Keep up the great work! Also check out his podcast, Vegas Gang. This is another must on your iOS device.
A little piece of Vegas in my pocket!
by Tex Kaliber on 2012/02/13 16:08
I'm not a diehard gambler. I do not do the club scene. Spa treatments are not part of my routine. That being said, I am still in love with Las Vegas! We only get out there once a year, but Vegas Mate keeps me posted daily. Sure I use it as a travel guide when I visit Sin City, but I use it a lot more at home when I want to see what's happening at my favorite places. Vegas Mate helps feel more like a local rather than a tourist. This app is money well spent, it is updated frequently and it just keeps getting better.
Very Helpful when Planning a Las Vegas Trip and When in Vegas
by PeteTechDir on 2011/11/02 07:25
Very good information on the things to see, places to eat, places to drink, and places to stay in Las Vegas. Very easy to plan out a trip and even more helpful when you're in Vegas. Hungry after walking from one casinos to another? They're always further apart than they seem. Well this app let's you know all the places to eat nearest to where you are at with helpful reviews. I could go on and on about how good and helpful this is. You'll be very happy you bought this app.
Vegas Mate: Perfect for casual tourist
by Chonze on 2010/05/23 23:54
Just tried this app out. Unlike some of the less optimistic reviewers, I think this app has A LOT of potential & already functions very well as a quick guide to Vegas. Now- I am not a person who has all the Vegas info ' in my head,' so it proved well worth the $4.99 I paid for it. I am waiting for the updates and personally will keep using this app for finding stuff to do that is *around* me whilst in Vegas on the fly. Great start- keep the updates coming & thanks for taking on this HUGE task.
Disappointed in this app
by sstiefel326 on 2009/12/16 15:47
I purchased this app 2 days before going to Vegas. I was looking forward to using it to find great stuff to suggest to our group. Instead, it kept crashing over and over again. When it finally did work, there wasn't a whole lot to it. It just tells you what is around you, which you can pretty much already tell by looking out the window. I wanted a searchable feature so I could look up this restaurant where my companions wanted to eat, but because I didn't know which hotel it was at (Wynn Encore), I couldn't find it until we were a few yards from it. Seems like this one still needs a little work before I call it the definitive Vegas app.
unbelievably good vegas resource
by iphone_app_reviews on 2010/04/12 21:51
Vegas Mate is the de facto standard in iPhone OS Las Vegas resources. there is so much information and usefulness in here that it just blows my mind. especially since the app is only TWO BUCKS... incredible. paper travel guide? no thanks, the info in here is more recent and better organized for my methods of operation. not to mention, this developer is a fiend for updating the app, i don't think he ever sleeps. as for the kooks that complain about 'finding all this on the web' - nothing does Vegas with the ease-of-use and elegance of Vegas Mate, including other vegas travel apps in the store. if you're the kind of lamebrain that fears spending TWO DOLLARS on a guide that might SAVE YOU HUNDREDS, why are you going to Vegas in the first place? I use vegas mate before, during, and after every Vegas trip (several times a year!) INDISPENSABLE, there's just no comparison to anything else. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Works great for us!
by VegasLovers09 on 2009/03/29 14:24
This app has been a very handy tool in Vegas. We've been 5 times in the past 4 years, so know the strip pretty well (wouldn't need a map). What we would love is a listing of poker tournament schedules for each hotel (at least the more popular ones). Maybe show times and entry fee? Just a thought =). But for $5, it has a lot of useful features! I'm sure the reviews will start filling in more as the popularity of the iPhone & apps increase.
Nice try but...
by 991tts on 2008/08/29 19:28
I'm in Las Vegas right now and I hoped to buy a useful guide but most reviews seem to be missing, despite a rating I can't understand because of the mentioned missing reviews. This application has potential but it may require several updates until it proves to be a useful tool. Some information also seems to be old and outdated, for example my hotel isn't finished(construction) yet according to the hotel guide and it has a three stars rating only but I would give it a 4 to 5 star rating. The author needs to update this application as soon as possible, right now it isn't much of a help.
Brochures are still your best bet for now
by JTimber on 2008/10/06 15:43
Just like everything in Vegas this program is overpriced for what you get and once you put your money in there is little to no return. Most of the #s I tried were outdated or incorrect. A "What's Happening Today" tab with the current days shows and events would be most helpful to anyone wanting a $5 program that is supposed to simplify vacation information. Restaurant menus would be a nice add on to this app too. For the most part I tried using this about 4-5 times on my trip and after that just got a brochure with updated information. A basic Yellow Pages search on my iphone was more helpful. Save your coin until this has some much needed work done.
Best by far
by Wife is relieved on 2016/02/26 19:18
This is the only app for Vegas that you need. I go to LV 2-3 times a year so I know if information is up to date, and this app is. For a Vegas greenhorn, you can read reviews and really get a feel for what you want to do, or where you'd like to stay, while avoiding the rip offs (like cabbies taking you through the tunnel to get to the south strip). Also functions great - never had a glitch in 2 years of using it. Download. You won't regret it.
Great resource (even for locals)
by BillyInLasVegas on 2010/08/07 22:23
I live in Las Vegas and I use it all the time. I love being able to know what restaurants are around me but even more important if they're open or not. You don't know how useful this is, most restaurants in town are either closing early or closing one night a week. This app is a must for any Las Vegas visitor, and loaded with good info for beginners and pros alike. Take it from someone that lives in Las Vegas and works in the business, you need this app!
Nice!
by Tonymall on 2010/02/23 06:36
I downloaded this app tonight. It's absolutely my favorite right now I travel about 25 times to Las Vegas it's nice to have an App like this even though I know my way around pretty much but all the information you're providing with the news and all the shows and what's going on in Las Vegas. It's priceless! My suggestion is to add site map of the resort most resorts have their own inside maps please add this and this will be a five star all the way I believe you will leave the competition behind you so much. Thanks
Lots of great info!
by How are all my nicknames taken on 2013/05/04 01:47
This is a great app! I basically use it to brainstorm plans for upcoming trips. When I read or hear about a place, I look it up on Vegas Mate and dump it into my upcoming trip. Then when it comes to the planning stage, I sift through my brainstorming to see which things I want to make time for. The app also has lots of great articles, and I find it especially useful to be able to see restaurants' menus and hours. Thanks!
A Must Have App
by KPackard on 2011/10/10 22:57
The last time we were in Vegas this application was amazingly useful. I highly recommend it to anyone traveling in the area looking for the current and latest on everything Vegas. It's a very user friendly application and with it's direction we had an incredible trip. All of the opinions in the app were spot on and I will definitely use it again the next time we go.
One man's personal and outdated opinion
by Kc talent on 2015/03/21 17:09
This "app" covers only about 20% of Vegas, is loaded with one man's personal, arrogant opinion and incredibly outdated. Photos of one hotel that isn't even in Vegas! Quotes from a 15 year old book on guide to gambling. Found more information on TripAdvisor in less than 5 minutes. Will programmers from a real research media group ever create a Vegas Guide app worthy of the potential millions of downloads it would get? "Play by TR" is the best I have ever seen, but clearly only caters to Ceasars customers. VegasMate is a complete joke and you are an idiot if you ever PAY to "expand your options" in this pathetic excuse for an app that simply got lucky with a catchy name.
Update needed
by gothico2020 on 2010/06/15 14:47
I have had this application for almost a year, and I have loved it. For all the reviews and many places to dine, see great shows, and get great deals on the hotels in Las Vegas. But since the new update the App. has become unstable and crashes numerous time. Where it has become too much of a hassle to run the application anymore. They really need to fix the new update there some really bugs cause it become almost useless. Revise: Still get crashes from opening up reviews on certain hotels. Mostly the App. is stable but still is pain when looking up information and you booted out and have restart again, again...
Great App!
by SidVicious79 on 2012/06/29 02:47
Not sure what's up with that other review… I don't think he understands how location works on the iPhone. The app uses geofences - those don't use the GPS at all and are very low power. I've been using Vegas Mate for a long time - there are content updates every month to keep things current but you can ignore them if you want. Don't you want the most up-to-date Vegas info? Anyway, great app. Love it!
need overall map
by russ e on 2008/10/11 21:51
I have been going to Vegas for 40 years and am thrilled to find Vegas Mate. I find the information I have sought to be up to date and right on. With so many new casino's I still have a problem keeping them straight as to who is next to who. It would be nice if you provided an OVERALL map showing the location of all the major casinos on the strip. Otherwise great job.
Amazing App!
by Vegas863 on 2011/05/23 04:00
Been using this app since it was first released for the iPad and it just keeps getting better! Love the frequent updates and all of the great information that is all aggregated and available at your fingertips! I always fire it up whenever I have a trip planned. Even though I've been to Vegas many times, I always find something new and exciting using this app.
Nice but limited
by Speedster400 on 2011/08/07 01:43
I wish there was an option to add additional items not listed in the database. It appears that the majority of the items in the database are tied to resorts which limits the experience a bit. We go to a lot of restaurants that are not inside of a resort such as Peppermill, Ri Ra, Hard Rock on the strip amongst others. Also, the most recent version seems to crash a little bit more. If we can get an option to add our own items and not limit this to a database I would give a higher rating.
Highly Addictive!
by Zuke on 2013/03/24 21:35
I have gone back again and again as I anticipate my upcoming trip to Las Vegas. Endlessly useful, with reviews, pics and the best part...the trip planner that you can save your restaurants, shows and other to-do's and wants. I keep all my confirmation numbers in there and add bars, clubs, etc that I want to remember checking out. Great up dates too! Simply awesome for Vegas lovers!
Good for the first timer or...
by Mike_E2 on 2011/11/02 19:57
...the fiftieth. I go to Vegas about six times a year and feel I know the city inside out. Nevertheless, I still find Vegasmate an invaluable resource. It's a great tool to find new places I haven't tried, check out updated restaurant menus, or find numbers of resorts quickly when you're on the go. Best $2 you'll spend before heading to the city.
If you dig Vegas
by JARME on 2010/04/07 02:41
I don't know about you, but if you are the least bit hooked on Vegas, you should have this app. I was reluctant at first, thinking it would only be worthwhile when I was in Vegas. Wrong -- it does a great job before you go, helps you plan with reviews of hotels, places to eat, things to do, etc. Plus, it keeps you up to date on the latest Vegas news.
Recently Disappointed
by Spalaw on 2011/10/24 20:03
This has been my favorite Vegas app for a while. I especially liked the news feed which always had informative and relevant Vegas information. However, recently the news items seem to have expanded to a lot of news that has nothing to do with Vegas. Why? We can get state, national and world news information from hundreds of other news sources. Don't lose the attraction that your news feed used to have!
Best Vegas App!
by Brian Fey on 2012/02/04 13:48
Just got back Vegas and tried several apps. Vegas Mate, was by far the most complete and comprehensive app. The best feature IMO, is the fact that it shows full menus and hours for each place. I even made some dinner reservations from the app itself. This app is a easy buy when you look at all the time if saves.
An Okay Add-On
by Bostonz Schroeder on 2009/05/27 04:21
On a personal scale of 1 to 10, I give this succinct, color-infused app a 5. Had I read throught it's components more thoroughly, I'd have realized ALL listings are casino-based only. Which eliminates an entire sector of truly great restaurant options. While I appreciate the range of restaurant choices the casinos offer, many "Best of's" cited by the Las Vegas Review, LV's primary newspaper, are not mentioned because they are not located inside a casino. I look forward to an upgrade that offers menu views of a given restaurant listing.
Good app before and after your trip
by Socman66 on 2010/08/10 21:05
Have traveled to Vegas 3 times since I got this app and have found it to be extremely helpful both before, during, and after my trips. Hotel, restaurant, show and attraction info and reviews allow me to choose what I want and don't want to see and do while I'm there. The what's nearby feature also great and I use that a lot. My favorite Vegas app!!!
Helpful getting Around
by kat.3 on 2011/12/27 03:20
I liked that the app would list all the restaurants and bars found in each of the hotels. Saved some endless wandering around. and I loved the maps of some of the casinos, so easy to get lost in some of them. Also the list of the polker tornaments by day and time was very useful
It's the Ultimate Guide to Vegas
by Sroeben on 2011/10/24 04:09
This great app has everything you'll need to get the most from your Vegas visit. It has tons of content to help find things to do, information about restaurants and hotels, and everything else you can think of. A must-have app for the Vegas fanatic, or even the casual traveler. Great price, greater value.
Great app
by Piasared on 2014/10/04 17:15
I love this app. I have been using Vegas Mate for about 3 years and now can't really use anything else. much prefer the reviews of users to that of the hotels telling me how great or bad the hotels/shows/restaurants with 0 PR BS. Very stable and with a huge amount of info and pictures, I can't recommend this App enough.
Consistently great
by Pokervixen on 2014/02/22 03:02
This app is always getting updated with the latest Vegas info which is amazing in a city that changes so much and so often. New versions seem to be well tested and customer service is great. You can tell there is a love of Vegas built into this app. I wish it existed for other cities.
Crashes
by Dlaing on 2012/02/21 03:52
I love this app, but now that I've updated my iPhone it will not open, it keeps crashing. The iPad update works fine. Here's a follow up. I sent an email to Vegas Mate and they responded immediately. We have exchanged several emails in the last few minutes and they are checking out the problem. Part of my problem might be that my iPhone is still using iOS 4.2.8 (hate to go through all the hassle I had updating my iPad again on my iPhone). The customer service is GREAT. After working with Hunter at Vegas Mate everything is working fine now. The BEST customer service EVER
Vegas Mate
by Toicat on 2012/07/05 21:54
Solid application. Good information that is updated frequently. I really like the hotel & restaurant reviews. Most of the restaurant information guides have their menu with current pricing included in the description. Easy to navigate, current information, what more do you need?
Worth it
by Jay6100 on 2010/09/14 17:04
Downloaded this app before a trip to help with planing things to do, which it was very helpful for, and have found myself still looking at it to plan for my next trip and some interesting reading. I like the availability of noting something as a favorite and being able to jump to or call directly from the app.
Vegas Mate App
by LVRobo on 2010/09/04 12:50
Here I am re-writing my review. I see a lot of people having issue with the app. I don't. This is a 5 STAR app. If you have an issue with Vegas Mate, contact them. They will respond back too you. I use this app all the time. When I start to miss Las Vegas, I will bring up Vegas Mate. Then I get really get depressed. But it is all good. Get the Vegas Mate app.
Great App
by Steve4198 on 2010/07/15 00:58
I love Vegas and go at least 5 times a year. This app is by far the best one out there. No app will provide you with better information and in depth coverage than this. If you are interested in what is going on in Vegas coupled with quality reviews of services then this app is for you.
Disappointing
by srscotty on 2013/10/14 02:40
After hearing about this app on one of the Vegas podcasts I listen to. I didn't even wait to read reviews before purchasing it. The app has potential but it seems that all of the features I have looked at are at least 10 months old! The Vegas news is current, but reviews, pictures, shows, etc are all outdated. Even the recent update section is three months old. Please catch up!!!
Awesome Vegas App
by peavette on 2010/06/28 01:47
This app has everything you need for Vegas. I've bought every Vegas app available and nothing else compares. AND the author updates it constantly! He really puts a lot of work into it and it shows. Hotel, restaurant, show info, reviews and tons more. To quote my favorite podcast, VegasMate is great!!

Excellent for traveling to Vegas. My favorite part is the ability to find restaurants by location. It tells you what’s nearby, what’s open, and usually has a link to the menu.

VegasMate
by HawkinBama on 2018/07/15 15:08
Awesome App!! I use VegasMate to put together a list of places I want to visit in Vegas. The App gives great info regarding hours and menus for restaurants as well as great maps to know where you are going. The app creator, Hunter, has put together a great place to help people who love Las Vegas love it even more. Hunter is awesome.
Great App
by jwg7979 on 2017/10/14 19:22
Very easy to use, great for planning trips, and definitely set up well.
Great guide
by mandolinlistener on 2017/07/22 05:20
Super helpful! Great tool!!
It's a start. But that's it.
by Bassplant on 2016/05/07 04:22
Ok. But where are many of the maps?! It's missing way too many maps. Like The Cosmopolitan, MGM, etc.....
Best by far
by Wife is relieved on 2016/02/26 19:18
This is the only app for Vegas that you need. I go to LV 2-3 times a year so I know if information is up to date, and this app is. For a Vegas greenhorn, you can read reviews and really get a feel for what you want to do, or where you'd like to stay, while avoiding the rip offs (like cabbies taking you through the tunnel to get to the south strip). Also functions great - never had a glitch in 2 years of using it. Download. You won't regret it.
Great guide!
by middleclassbuzz2015 on 2016/02/05 22:14
The only Vegas guide you'll need.
Great
by shovelups on 2016/01/29 02:23
A lot of info and features. Heard out this app on Vegas Gang & Five Hundy By Midnight podcasts
Great Info
by NoOneNow on 2016/01/19 00:53
I download this app before every trip to Vegas, lots of great info to make getting around Vegas and planning your trip easier & more enjoyable
Great app!!
by Lucy113 on 2015/10/01 02:19
I love this app! I especially love the cab check feature!! Thanks Hunter! Keep up the great work!!!
Best app for real Vegas reviews
by enjoyable podcast on 2015/09/26 12:51
Not written by the PR people, just others who have the app and use it. Very well done an updated every time I open it for new places to stay/play/eat
Vegasmate!
by DM49323 on 2015/07/15 09:34
Time is precious when visiting Vegas - don’t waste it with at lame places - With Vegasmate on my phone, I can make plans on the fly and look like a Vegas expert to my friends.
Disappointed
by Maryankees on 2015/06/08 23:33
I renewed this app since it worked so well last year. Very disappointed that the dining section has so many old reviews that were worthless. Also the distance did not work. Every restaurant was 0 feet away and within walking distance.
Doesn't work!
by PookyTukus on 2015/05/24 07:39
I get to the Permissions black screen and nothing else. Can't use app. Waste of time.
One man's personal and outdated opinion
by Kc talent on 2015/03/21 17:09
This "app" covers only about 20% of Vegas, is loaded with one man's personal, arrogant opinion and incredibly outdated. Photos of one hotel that isn't even in Vegas! Quotes from a 15 year old book on guide to gambling. Found more information on TripAdvisor in less than 5 minutes. Will programmers from a real research media group ever create a Vegas Guide app worthy of the potential millions of downloads it would get? "Play by TR" is the best I have ever seen, but clearly only caters to Ceasars customers. VegasMate is a complete joke and you are an idiot if you ever PAY to "expand your options" in this pathetic excuse for an app that simply got lucky with a catchy name.
Highly frustrating!
by L£af on 2015/03/10 03:32
I have made 3 attempts to download this app and each other time I have reached a screen stating Permissions. It's a black screen and that's it. Freakin' frustrated!

Great app for trips to my favorite city
by ErikMHummel on 2014/11/01 14:59
Useful features to help both with trip planning in advance of a trip and also help find things while in Vegas.
Vegas Mate
by JJR2013 on 2014/10/23 20:10
The best Las Vegas app, Has everything you need and more, I'm so glad I have this app ,It keeps me update on everything in Vegas as we all know it changes all the time, Thanks Again
Great app
by Piasared on 2014/10/04 17:15
I love this app. I have been using Vegas Mate for about 3 years and now can't really use anything else. much prefer the reviews of users to that of the hotels telling me how great or bad the hotels/shows/restaurants with 0 PR BS. Very stable and with a huge amount of info and pictures, I can't recommend this App enough.
Always updated!!!
by Carroll from MO on 2014/10/02 03:48
How does this app have "only" a 4 star rating- it is totally 5 star all the way- I have this app in my iPhone - iPod touch- and iPad- and love it on all Apple devices. The constant updates that Hunter puts out makes this the most have Vegas app for any apple person!
Fantastic reference for Vegas newbies
by HesTheATrain on 2014/08/06 16:25
This app is extremely useful for people visiting Vegas for the first time, and still useful on my 21st time!
The best Vegas tourist app. Period.

Just ok.
by Alecia0917 on 2014/05/15 04:15
Great concept, but missing a lot of information. The attractions section is sparse and the overall look is boring. Also more pictures would be helpful.
Awful

Do not waste your time
Used to be Good
by CrayzeeGuy on 2014/03/10 21:33
Joining the long list of Apps that want more $$$ from you after your purchased it. Also, annoyingly sets up an always-on geofence (constantly using GPS) even when the app is closed.
Stay away
by Bobbyb65787 on 2014/02/23 23:00
Paid for original version. Now they want you to pay again. Not worth it at all. Most content reviews are outdated
Consistently great
by Pokervixen on 2014/02/22 03:02
This app is always getting updated with the latest Vegas info which is amazing in a city that changes so much and so often. New versions seem to be well tested and customer service is great. You can tell there is a love of Vegas built into this app. I wish it existed for other cities.
Crashes will not open

Used to love this but crashes and never opens. Have reinstalled to no avail.
Great, GREAT App!
by Tonysnyder on 2013/12/04 02:00
This app is fantastic! Even if you 'like', not "love" Vegas, you're going to enjoy this app! Restaurant menus and their hours, reviews of the hotel, rooms, amenities and all casinos makes this app a must have from newbies to Vegas experienced old timers!
Best Vegas App Available
by MarkandKeren on 2013/11/16 17:08
Truly the most complete app about Vegas available and getting better all the time. Perfect for newbies and frequent visitors. Don't know how I ever got around Vegas without it.
Garbage
by Magic_Ninja on 2013/10/20 15:28
Don't waste your time. Has a "subscription" service for updates. Give me a break. Can get this information from other places without the subscription and fake reviews on places. This is just a scam to get more money by the developers.
love it
by keith2728 on 2013/10/15 18:13
I have used VegasMate for years, this new update is the best ever. Even as a veteran Vegas visitor i find it indispensable in my trip preperation.
Disappointing
by srscotty on 2013/10/14 02:40
After hearing about this app on one of the Vegas podcasts I listen to. I didn't even wait to read reviews before purchasing it. The app has potential but it seems that all of the features I have looked at are at least 10 months old! The Vegas news is current, but reviews, pictures, shows, etc are all outdated. Even the recent update section is three months old. Please catch up!!!
Apparently a Scam App - Useless
by JimM111 on 2013/10/09 17:18
This app provides little useful information and instead just continues to show the same web link for most requests. Useless. When updating the database as the app wants to do immediately, I believe this app is copying your contact information, since all the scant information is still both very general and as others have indicated, out of date. This is most likely a scam application.
Worst travel App ever
by Chicago sports fan22222222 on 2013/10/07 01:53
Omg, this app could not be more worthless. When searching for rooms with this app, it quoted me rates such as "$900 average rate at tropicanA". Obviously that is totally wrong, as was every single hotel rate they quoted. They must be averaging all of the rates, including suites, which is worthless to me. Every hotel rate is going to look expensive if you lump in the fancy suite rates. Seriously, worthless app. Just google Las Vegas instead, or ask a friend whose been to vegas. Awful app!
Junk

Best Vegas App Ever!

I love this app! It's so helpful every time I am planing a Vegas trip and even better when you get there. It's always being updated so no information is out of date. Worth every cent you pay for it.
Lots of great info
by Lepp. on 2013/08/18 14:09
Lots of great info, even for a Vegas regular. Lots of updates too--always seems up to date with the ever changing/evolving Vegas scene. Recommended!

I've travelled to Vegas annually for a conference for several years and can't believe how much I used this app on my recent trip. Great info. You won't be disappointed.
Lots of great info!
by How are all my nicknames taken on 2013/05/04 01:47
This is a great app! I basically use it to brainstorm plans for upcoming trips. When I read or hear about a place, I look it up on Vegas Mate and dump it into my upcoming trip. Then when it comes to the planning stage, I sift through my brainstorming to see which things I want to make time for. The app also has lots of great articles, and I find it especially useful to be able to see restaurants' menus and hours. Thanks!
Best app for planning a Vegas trip
by John1952 on 2013/04/25 03:48
Vegas Mate has it all. Hotel reviews, attraction info, restaurant menus with reviews, menus, and in many cases prices. Always very helpful.
Highly Addictive!
by Zuke on 2013/03/24 21:35
I have gone back again and again as I anticipate my upcoming trip to Las Vegas. Endlessly useful, with reviews, pics and the best part...the trip planner that you can save your restaurants, shows and other to-do's and wants. I keep all my confirmation numbers in there and add bars, clubs, etc that I want to remember checking out. Great up dates too! Simply awesome for Vegas lovers!
Great app but..
by twosey on 2013/03/20 19:20
Read the news section every day, but recently has been flooded with random, unrelated, boring articles from the LVRJ. What gives?
It's fine
by Lennythelethal on 2013/02/08 03:39
A bit confusing to me but overall it's fine. Similar information is available on the reviews for free

Love. This. App.
by Cnov1980 on 2013/01/24 03:46
After moving here this was my bible. Tell anyone and everyone visiting or relocating to Vegas to download this app. They stay on top of updates - as this is an ever changing city - and I love that when I pickup or drop off at the airport I get a message wishing me luck and telling me "We love you." Back at ya!
Great app!!!!
by Johanna66 on 2013/01/23 20:37
This app is awesome it has it all reviews , menus , tips, and news !! I have used it for years worth the money !!!
Love the menus
by MZCLVR on 2012/12/27 20:06
I really like the convenience of having all of the information in one place.
Must-have app if you want a great Vegas experience
by TIavEN on 2012/12/27 00:01
Used VegasMate extensively throughout my last trip to Vegas. Extremely helpful app full of useful information on hotels, restaurants, etc. I wanted to focus on dining this trip, and the exhaustive restaurant list, as well as the menus, hours, and prices were all super helpful in finding top notch places that I would otherwise not have encountered or considered. My trip was definitely much better thanks to this app. If you're really looking to have an enjoyable Vegas experience, this app is a must-have. I used it all throughout my trip, and it made for a much better trip--perhaps my best trip (out of 30+) yet. Definitely worth the price.

Solid application. Good information that is updated frequently. I really like the hotel & restaurant reviews. Most of the restaurant information guides have their menu with current pricing included in the description. Easy to navigate, current information, what more do you need?
Excellent planning app for Vegas trips
by Anthony Knakal on 2012/07/04 15:00
Vegas Mate is thorough and easy to use, providing information on hotels, restaurants, and attractions in Las Vegas. It is a great help in keeping track of plans for upcoming trips. Highly recommended!
VEGAS (MATE) Baby!!!

By far the best travel app I own. And I have every Vegas and Disney app in the store. The iCloud between the iPad and iPhone works awesome. I can't imagine planning a Vegas trip without this now...
Great App!
by SidVicious79 on 2012/06/29 02:47
Not sure what's up with that other review… I don't think he understands how location works on the iPhone. The app uses geofences - those don't use the GPS at all and are very low power. I've been using Vegas Mate for a long time - there are content updates every month to keep things current but you can ignore them if you want. Don't you want the most up-to-date Vegas info? Anyway, great app. Love it!
No good
by Burgman412 on 2012/06/28 19:18
I can't believe I spent the money on this. Not worth it. Plus the thing runs the gps when not using it. Had to delete the app to get rid of it. It always asked me for these huge updates every time I used it.

I found this useful, especially the user reviews. It did not quite meet my expectations, I found my Fodor's book more helpful. I liked this enough to add some of my reviews to the app.
Love VegasMate
by Olive Vegas on 2012/05/11 00:40

Worked really well on my trip! 1 example: My wife was hungry, so we opened up the app and found a restaurant using the "nearby" feature. It was cool. Was helpful in many ways. Love the iPad version!!!!!! Thank you Vegas Mate!
Great app

So buggy
by jetsetguy01 on 2012/03/21 17:31
Constant minor software updates, and so many internal database updates that use data and bandwidth, gets tiresome. After crashing and two reinstalls, got the app to run. But "expert" itineraries that cost 99 cents each for what's basically just a list of places you could go. Not worth the money, very little worthwhile content that would actually help me pick where to go right now in Vegas.
Waste of 2 dollars
by Nikkiwhittier on 2012/03/19 04:19

Vegas Mate is Insanely Great
by Jersey Bill on 2012/03/06 03:10
Where do I start… I have been using Vegas Mate to help plan several trips to Vegas over the past couple years - but more importantly to enjoy the limited time I always have in town. This app is intelligently designed to address your Vegas needs before and during the time you hit town - by keeping you up on happenings with the news feed, by helping you to plan a trip and bring together exactly the things you want to fill your time with (you can even plan around things not listed in its very large database of options), and by showing you what's close to you when you are in town and want a food or entertainment option on a moment's notice. So many times I have helped people in Vegas with questions or needs by just whipping out this app and finding the right information for them - whether a phone number or confirmation that the restaurant they want is still open. The main thing that differentiates this app is Hunter who keeps making it better and better with every improvement he can cram in - like the latest "cloud integration" that will share your itinerary between all your Apple devices. It was always a good app - but in the past year it has become a great app. Nothing I know of will help you enjoy your time in Vegas more than this little $2.00 gem. I have collected most of the possible Vegas app guides and resources out there - but nothing comes within a light year of Vegas Mate. My highest recommendation !! Jersey Bill

No crashes, no lock-ups, no bugs! The perfect Vegas app! I'm going to Las Vegas in June and this is THE DEFINITE app to plan trips and see what there is to do in town! Contains info on every hotel you can think of. 5/5!
Crashes
by Dlaing on 2012/02/21 03:52
I love this app, but now that I've updated my iPhone it will not open, it keeps crashing. The iPad update works fine. Here's a follow up. I sent an email to Vegas Mate and they responded immediately. We have exchanged several emails in the last few minutes and they are checking out the problem. Part of my problem might be that my iPhone is still using iOS 4.2.8 (hate to go through all the hassle I had updating my iPad again on my iPhone). The customer service is GREAT. After working with Hunter at Vegas Mate everything is working fine now. The BEST customer service EVER
A little piece of Vegas in my pocket!
by Tex Kaliber on 2012/02/13 16:08
I'm not a diehard gambler. I do not do the club scene. Spa treatments are not part of my routine. That being said, I am still in love with Las Vegas! We only get out there once a year, but Vegas Mate keeps me posted daily. Sure I use it as a travel guide when I visit Sin City, but I use it a lot more at home when I want to see what's happening at my favorite places. Vegas Mate helps feel more like a local rather than a tourist. This app is money well spent, it is updated frequently and it just keeps getting better.
Great App
by DCR112983 on 2012/02/12 08:50
Love this app! Tons of useful information.
My favorite travel app
by BChevrier on 2012/02/04 17:50
Great app not only for planning my trips but for having in hand while in Las Vegas. This app is kept current with frequent in-app updates. I wish all my travel destinations had an app like this.
Best Vegas App!
by Brian Fey on 2012/02/04 13:48
Just got back Vegas and tried several apps. Vegas Mate, was by far the most complete and comprehensive app. The best feature IMO, is the fact that it shows full menus and hours for each place. I even made some dinner reservations from the app itself. This app is a easy buy when you look at all the time if saves.
Worthless.... Don't buy!
by Adam R Winfield on 2012/02/02 08:23
Terrible app. Use Yelp for free to get better reviews and restaurant ideas. If you want an itinerary for a "bachelor weekend" pay another dollar. I wouldn't even use this if it were free.
Please add maps
by RMC4571 on 2012/01/28 14:56
Good app for basic info, but I can't find a Vegas app that has everything. Please add MAPS of strip and downtown with google maps compatibility. Also casino floor maps would be awesome. I currently have a separate apps for those features. If this app had those features it would be my one go to Vegas App.
Don't leave home without it...

by Whiskey & tails on 2012/01/24 00:47
When planning your Vegas trip it's ideal to have a few things planned. Inevitably your forget that piece of paper at home and miss out... Not anymore with Vegasmate. Necessity for trip planning!
New Update is tops!
by vajohna on 2012/01/22 21:18
I'm a resident of Las Vegas who frequents the Strip and this app has helped me make dinner and show reservations on a weekly basis. For all of your dining, shows, clubs - VegasMate is it! Try out the 'Killer Views' in-app option, it's rad.
Great!!!!
by Bonesoup on 2012/01/22 16:47
We Used This When We Were In Vegas And It Works Great!!! It Tells You How Far You Are From Things...We Were At MGM Grand And Wondered Where To Eat ...You Can Bring Up All The Places To Eat There And Look At Reviews To See Which Ones Are The Best...it's also always being updated...
Crashes
by tdi10-4wd on 2012/01/22 04:48

Keeps getting better
by JLOKC on 2012/01/22 02:52
Without a doubt, the best Las Vegas info source gets better with every update. The developer is one of the foremost Las Vegas observers and experts. There is no more accurate and up to date source for Las Vegas information.

VegasMate is great
by md329 on 2018/12/23 18:37
Excellent for traveling to Vegas. My favorite part is the ability to find restaurants by location. It tells you what’s nearby, what’s open, and usually has a link to the menu.
Great App

Have an iPhone or iPad? going to Vegas? Then you need this App, End of Story. Taking advantage of the ability to pinpointe your Location, Not Only does it contain all the vital info on Hotels/Shows and Food, in the latter case it will also tell you if that place is open right now. It was a great saver for us, when it came the the magic question, "so what so we want to eat now?". On more than one occassion it came up with answers on where, what food type and if it was any good! Wether you are a first time vistor, or Like myself, who has lost count of the number of times he has been, with Ratings, Price Points and Peer Reviews, you will find it an essential companion to your visit, hey its even good for planning beforehand
Cute but no cigar
by Las Vegas Guru on 2008/09/01 23:03
This is a great idea that just does not work. It is set up to be manually updated. They can take your money now and lose interest anytime. The database is already far behind the times. For instance there are 2 Arizona Charlies and they only mention one. The Southpoint restaurant listing is well over a year old. And on and on and on. Correcting these two examples will not make it right. If they do not have their stuff together now, how can they expect to provide a consistantly good product with updates in a town that is constantly changing. The Arizona Charlies mistake is missing a casino/hotel that is over 20 years old. You can pick almost any casino that you are very familiar with and find that this app falls very short. I would pay $25 for this program if it were accurate and useful. Today I find it overpriced since the magazines and pamphlets you find on every corner are more accurate. I wish it worked. It has features that would be useful. I can not imagine them ever catching up. If they did, keeping it updated just isn't going to happen. Don't waste your money.
Missing a lot but still could be useful
by Kevin Crossman on 2008/11/30 22:41
The concept behind the app is sound, and in practice could be quite useful. When we wanted to eat a buffet but found the line too long, the app was very helpful at noting the closest restaurants including other buffets. The Tips section is useful and (where present) the editorial reviews are good. Now, this app is missing a lot of things - most of which are stronger descriptions and more editorial and reader reviews. As such, the $5 price is borderline. The maps don't really have a great view of how large the casinos actually are, and floorplans would be even more helpful. An ability to sort restaurants by type (buffet, steak, etc.) or by rating/cost would be most helpful. Still, the app did save us a couple times on our most recent trip. So if you're going to Vegas this is hardly the worst $5 you'll throw at your trip.
Must-have app if you want a great Vegas experience
by TIavEN on 2012/12/27 00:01
Used VegasMate extensively throughout my last trip to Vegas. Extremely helpful app full of useful information on hotels, restaurants, etc. I wanted to focus on dining this trip, and the exhaustive restaurant list, as well as the menus, hours, and prices were all super helpful in finding top notch places that I would otherwise not have encountered or considered. My trip was definitely much better thanks to this app. If you're really looking to have an enjoyable Vegas experience, this app is a must-have. I used it all throughout my trip, and it made for a much better trip--perhaps my best trip (out of 30+) yet. Definitely worth the price.
Invaluable tool
by rangerkeeper on 2011/10/16 05:30
Update: The new version (2.6.1) is great! Runs noticeably faster and still all the great content. Still the premier Vegas application with the perfect blend of crowed-sourcing and expert commentary. Keep up the fantastic work! Vegas Mate has always been a useful tool, but the new content in 2.5 makes it absolutely invaluable. Steve Freiss (of the New York Times and The Strip Podcast) knows more about Las Vegas than anyone and his commentary is fresh, funny, an totally helpful. The gps based features are fun, but I also can't wait to read up on my next flight out to the Sin City. With so many options in Vegas, the cost of this app is totally worth it in making a good trip great!
One of, if not, the best Las Vegas resource out there.
by Simondsm on 2011/10/12 15:01
A couple of years ago, a career change now requires me to visit Las Vegas every year for a convention, and with that, I was instantly transformed into a HUGE Las Vegas fanboy. I am very much an iPhone addict, and started to search for podcasts and apps related to Las Vegas. Simply put, this is one of my favorite apps on my iPad and iPhone. Hunter is that friend with all sorts of Vegas related information you wish you had, and he makes that possible with a great app. I cannot even begin to tell you how much this app has helped me. I can walk into a casino for the first time, and already have a great backstory, where to eat, what to do, what not to do… Las Vegas can get very expensive, or it can be very cheap, and Vegas Mate helps me out greatly. If you visit Las Vegas on a regular basis, this app is A MUST. If I ever had the chance to meet Hunter, I would have to shake his hand, and buy him a beer. Keep up the great work! Also check out his podcast, Vegas Gang. This is another must on your iOS device.
A little piece of Vegas in my pocket!
by Tex Kaliber on 2012/02/13 16:08
I'm not a diehard gambler. I do not do the club scene. Spa treatments are not part of my routine. That being said, I am still in love with Las Vegas! We only get out there once a year, but Vegas Mate keeps me posted daily. Sure I use it as a travel guide when I visit Sin City, but I use it a lot more at home when I want to see what's happening at my favorite places. Vegas Mate helps feel more like a local rather than a tourist. This app is money well spent, it is updated frequently and it just keeps getting better.
Very Helpful when Planning a Las Vegas Trip and When in Vegas
by PeteTechDir on 2011/11/02 07:25
Very good information on the things to see, places to eat, places to drink, and places to stay in Las Vegas. Very easy to plan out a trip and even more helpful when you're in Vegas. Hungry after walking from one casinos to another? They're always further apart than they seem. Well this app let's you know all the places to eat nearest to where you are at with helpful reviews. I could go on and on about how good and helpful this is. You'll be very happy you bought this app.
Vegas Mate: Perfect for casual tourist
by Chonze on 2010/05/23 23:54
Just tried this app out. Unlike some of the less optimistic reviewers, I think this app has A LOT of potential & already functions very well as a quick guide to Vegas. Now- I am not a person who has all the Vegas info ' in my head,' so it proved well worth the $4.99 I paid for it. I am waiting for the updates and personally will keep using this app for finding stuff to do that is *around* me whilst in Vegas on the fly. Great start- keep the updates coming & thanks for taking on this HUGE task.
Disappointed in this app
by sstiefel326 on 2009/12/16 15:47
I purchased this app 2 days before going to Vegas. I was looking forward to using it to find great stuff to suggest to our group. Instead, it kept crashing over and over again. When it finally did work, there wasn't a whole lot to it. It just tells you what is around you, which you can pretty much already tell by looking out the window. I wanted a searchable feature so I could look up this restaurant where my companions wanted to eat, but because I didn't know which hotel it was at (Wynn Encore), I couldn't find it until we were a few yards from it. Seems like this one still needs a little work before I call it the definitive Vegas app.
unbelievably good vegas resource
by iphone_app_reviews on 2010/04/12 21:51
Vegas Mate is the de facto standard in iPhone OS Las Vegas resources. there is so much information and usefulness in here that it just blows my mind. especially since the app is only TWO BUCKS... incredible. paper travel guide? no thanks, the info in here is more recent and better organized for my methods of operation. not to mention, this developer is a fiend for updating the app, i don't think he ever sleeps. as for the kooks that complain about 'finding all this on the web' - nothing does Vegas with the ease-of-use and elegance of Vegas Mate, including other vegas travel apps in the store. if you're the kind of lamebrain that fears spending TWO DOLLARS on a guide that might SAVE YOU HUNDREDS, why are you going to Vegas in the first place? I use vegas mate before, during, and after every Vegas trip (several times a year!) INDISPENSABLE, there's just no comparison to anything else. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Works great for us!
by VegasLovers09 on 2009/03/29 14:24
This app has been a very handy tool in Vegas. We've been 5 times in the past 4 years, so know the strip pretty well (wouldn't need a map). What we would love is a listing of poker tournament schedules for each hotel (at least the more popular ones). Maybe show times and entry fee? Just a thought =). But for $5, it has a lot of useful features! I'm sure the reviews will start filling in more as the popularity of the iPhone & apps increase.
Nice try but...
by 991tts on 2008/08/29 19:28
I'm in Las Vegas right now and I hoped to buy a useful guide but most reviews seem to be missing, despite a rating I can't understand because of the mentioned missing reviews. This application has potential but it may require several updates until it proves to be a useful tool. Some information also seems to be old and outdated, for example my hotel isn't finished(construction) yet according to the hotel guide and it has a three stars rating only but I would give it a 4 to 5 star rating. The author needs to update this application as soon as possible, right now it isn't much of a help.
Brochures are still your best bet for now
by JTimber on 2008/10/06 15:43
Just like everything in Vegas this program is overpriced for what you get and once you put your money in there is little to no return. Most of the #s I tried were outdated or incorrect. A "What's Happening Today" tab with the current days shows and events would be most helpful to anyone wanting a $5 program that is supposed to simplify vacation information. Restaurant menus would be a nice add on to this app too. For the most part I tried using this about 4-5 times on my trip and after that just got a brochure with updated information. A basic Yellow Pages search on my iphone was more helpful. Save your coin until this has some much needed work done.
Best by far
by Wife is relieved on 2016/02/26 19:18
This is the only app for Vegas that you need. I go to LV 2-3 times a year so I know if information is up to date, and this app is. For a Vegas greenhorn, you can read reviews and really get a feel for what you want to do, or where you'd like to stay, while avoiding the rip offs (like cabbies taking you through the tunnel to get to the south strip). Also functions great - never had a glitch in 2 years of using it. Download. You won't regret it.
Great resource (even for locals)
by BillyInLasVegas on 2010/08/07 22:23
I live in Las Vegas and I use it all the time. I love being able to know what restaurants are around me but even more important if they're open or not. You don't know how useful this is, most restaurants in town are either closing early or closing one night a week. This app is a must for any Las Vegas visitor, and loaded with good info for beginners and pros alike. Take it from someone that lives in Las Vegas and works in the business, you need this app!
Nice!
by Tonymall on 2010/02/23 06:36
I downloaded this app tonight. It's absolutely my favorite right now I travel about 25 times to Las Vegas it's nice to have an App like this even though I know my way around pretty much but all the information you're providing with the news and all the shows and what's going on in Las Vegas. It's priceless! My suggestion is to add site map of the resort most resorts have their own inside maps please add this and this will be a five star all the way I believe you will leave the competition behind you so much. Thanks
Lots of great info!
by How are all my nicknames taken on 2013/05/04 01:47
This is a great app! I basically use it to brainstorm plans for upcoming trips. When I read or hear about a place, I look it up on Vegas Mate and dump it into my upcoming trip. Then when it comes to the planning stage, I sift through my brainstorming to see which things I want to make time for. The app also has lots of great articles, and I find it especially useful to be able to see restaurants' menus and hours. Thanks!
A Must Have App
by KPackard on 2011/10/10 22:57
The last time we were in Vegas this application was amazingly useful. I highly recommend it to anyone traveling in the area looking for the current and latest on everything Vegas. It's a very user friendly application and with it's direction we had an incredible trip. All of the opinions in the app were spot on and I will definitely use it again the next time we go.
One man's personal and outdated opinion
by Kc talent on 2015/03/21 17:09
This "app" covers only about 20% of Vegas, is loaded with one man's personal, arrogant opinion and incredibly outdated. Photos of one hotel that isn't even in Vegas! Quotes from a 15 year old book on guide to gambling. Found more information on TripAdvisor in less than 5 minutes. Will programmers from a real research media group ever create a Vegas Guide app worthy of the potential millions of downloads it would get? "Play by TR" is the best I have ever seen, but clearly only caters to Ceasars customers. VegasMate is a complete joke and you are an idiot if you ever PAY to "expand your options" in this pathetic excuse for an app that simply got lucky with a catchy name.
Update needed
by gothico2020 on 2010/06/15 14:47
I have had this application for almost a year, and I have loved it. For all the reviews and many places to dine, see great shows, and get great deals on the hotels in Las Vegas. But since the new update the App. has become unstable and crashes numerous time. Where it has become too much of a hassle to run the application anymore. They really need to fix the new update there some really bugs cause it become almost useless. Revise: Still get crashes from opening up reviews on certain hotels. Mostly the App. is stable but still is pain when looking up information and you booted out and have restart again, again...
Great App!
by SidVicious79 on 2012/06/29 02:47
Not sure what's up with that other review… I don't think he understands how location works on the iPhone. The app uses geofences - those don't use the GPS at all and are very low power. I've been using Vegas Mate for a long time - there are content updates every month to keep things current but you can ignore them if you want. Don't you want the most up-to-date Vegas info? Anyway, great app. Love it!
need overall map
by russ e on 2008/10/11 21:51
I have been going to Vegas for 40 years and am thrilled to find Vegas Mate. I find the information I have sought to be up to date and right on. With so many new casino's I still have a problem keeping them straight as to who is next to who. It would be nice if you provided an OVERALL map showing the location of all the major casinos on the strip. Otherwise great job.
Amazing App!
by Vegas863 on 2011/05/23 04:00
Been using this app since it was first released for the iPad and it just keeps getting better! Love the frequent updates and all of the great information that is all aggregated and available at your fingertips! I always fire it up whenever I have a trip planned. Even though I've been to Vegas many times, I always find something new and exciting using this app.
Nice but limited
by Speedster400 on 2011/08/07 01:43
I wish there was an option to add additional items not listed in the database. It appears that the majority of the items in the database are tied to resorts which limits the experience a bit. We go to a lot of restaurants that are not inside of a resort such as Peppermill, Ri Ra, Hard Rock on the strip amongst others. Also, the most recent version seems to crash a little bit more. If we can get an option to add our own items and not limit this to a database I would give a higher rating.
Highly Addictive!
by Zuke on 2013/03/24 21:35
I have gone back again and again as I anticipate my upcoming trip to Las Vegas. Endlessly useful, with reviews, pics and the best part...the trip planner that you can save your restaurants, shows and other to-do's and wants. I keep all my confirmation numbers in there and add bars, clubs, etc that I want to remember checking out. Great up dates too! Simply awesome for Vegas lovers!
Good for the first timer or...
by Mike_E2 on 2011/11/02 19:57
...the fiftieth. I go to Vegas about six times a year and feel I know the city inside out. Nevertheless, I still find Vegasmate an invaluable resource. It's a great tool to find new places I haven't tried, check out updated restaurant menus, or find numbers of resorts quickly when you're on the go. Best $2 you'll spend before heading to the city.
If you dig Vegas
by JARME on 2010/04/07 02:41
I don't know about you, but if you are the least bit hooked on Vegas, you should have this app. I was reluctant at first, thinking it would only be worthwhile when I was in Vegas. Wrong -- it does a great job before you go, helps you plan with reviews of hotels, places to eat, things to do, etc. Plus, it keeps you up to date on the latest Vegas news.
Recently Disappointed
by Spalaw on 2011/10/24 20:03
This has been my favorite Vegas app for a while. I especially liked the news feed which always had informative and relevant Vegas information. However, recently the news items seem to have expanded to a lot of news that has nothing to do with Vegas. Why? We can get state, national and world news information from hundreds of other news sources. Don't lose the attraction that your news feed used to have!
Best Vegas App!
by Brian Fey on 2012/02/04 13:48
Just got back Vegas and tried several apps. Vegas Mate, was by far the most complete and comprehensive app. The best feature IMO, is the fact that it shows full menus and hours for each place. I even made some dinner reservations from the app itself. This app is a easy buy when you look at all the time if saves.
An Okay Add-On
by Bostonz Schroeder on 2009/05/27 04:21
On a personal scale of 1 to 10, I give this succinct, color-infused app a 5. Had I read throught it's components more thoroughly, I'd have realized ALL listings are casino-based only. Which eliminates an entire sector of truly great restaurant options. While I appreciate the range of restaurant choices the casinos offer, many "Best of's" cited by the Las Vegas Review, LV's primary newspaper, are not mentioned because they are not located inside a casino. I look forward to an upgrade that offers menu views of a given restaurant listing.
Good app before and after your trip
by Socman66 on 2010/08/10 21:05
Have traveled to Vegas 3 times since I got this app and have found it to be extremely helpful both before, during, and after my trips. Hotel, restaurant, show and attraction info and reviews allow me to choose what I want and don't want to see and do while I'm there. The what's nearby feature also great and I use that a lot. My favorite Vegas app!!!
Helpful getting Around
by kat.3 on 2011/12/27 03:20
I liked that the app would list all the restaurants and bars found in each of the hotels. Saved some endless wandering around. and I loved the maps of some of the casinos, so easy to get lost in some of them. Also the list of the polker tornaments by day and time was very useful
It's the Ultimate Guide to Vegas
by Sroeben on 2011/10/24 04:09
This great app has everything you'll need to get the most from your Vegas visit. It has tons of content to help find things to do, information about restaurants and hotels, and everything else you can think of. A must-have app for the Vegas fanatic, or even the casual traveler. Great price, greater value.
Great app
by Piasared on 2014/10/04 17:15
I love this app. I have been using Vegas Mate for about 3 years and now can't really use anything else. much prefer the reviews of users to that of the hotels telling me how great or bad the hotels/shows/restaurants with 0 PR BS. Very stable and with a huge amount of info and pictures, I can't recommend this App enough.
Consistently great
by Pokervixen on 2014/02/22 03:02
This app is always getting updated with the latest Vegas info which is amazing in a city that changes so much and so often. New versions seem to be well tested and customer service is great. You can tell there is a love of Vegas built into this app. I wish it existed for other cities.
Crashes
by Dlaing on 2012/02/21 03:52
I love this app, but now that I've updated my iPhone it will not open, it keeps crashing. The iPad update works fine. Here's a follow up. I sent an email to Vegas Mate and they responded immediately. We have exchanged several emails in the last few minutes and they are checking out the problem. Part of my problem might be that my iPhone is still using iOS 4.2.8 (hate to go through all the hassle I had updating my iPad again on my iPhone). The customer service is GREAT. After working with Hunter at Vegas Mate everything is working fine now. The BEST customer service EVER
Vegas Mate
by Toicat on 2012/07/05 21:54
Solid application. Good information that is updated frequently. I really like the hotel & restaurant reviews. Most of the restaurant information guides have their menu with current pricing included in the description. Easy to navigate, current information, what more do you need?
Worth it
by Jay6100 on 2010/09/14 17:04
Downloaded this app before a trip to help with planing things to do, which it was very helpful for, and have found myself still looking at it to plan for my next trip and some interesting reading. I like the availability of noting something as a favorite and being able to jump to or call directly from the app.
Vegas Mate App
by LVRobo on 2010/09/04 12:50
Here I am re-writing my review. I see a lot of people having issue with the app. I don't. This is a 5 STAR app. If you have an issue with Vegas Mate, contact them. They will respond back too you. I use this app all the time. When I start to miss Las Vegas, I will bring up Vegas Mate. Then I get really get depressed. But it is all good. Get the Vegas Mate app.
Great App
by Steve4198 on 2010/07/15 00:58
I love Vegas and go at least 5 times a year. This app is by far the best one out there. No app will provide you with better information and in depth coverage than this. If you are interested in what is going on in Vegas coupled with quality reviews of services then this app is for you.
Disappointing
by srscotty on 2013/10/14 02:40
After hearing about this app on one of the Vegas podcasts I listen to. I didn't even wait to read reviews before purchasing it. The app has potential but it seems that all of the features I have looked at are at least 10 months old! The Vegas news is current, but reviews, pictures, shows, etc are all outdated. Even the recent update section is three months old. Please catch up!!!
Awesome Vegas App
by peavette on 2010/06/28 01:47
This app has everything you need for Vegas. I've bought every Vegas app available and nothing else compares. AND the author updates it constantly! He really puts a lot of work into it and it shows. Hotel, restaurant, show info, reviews and tons more. To quote my favorite podcast, VegasMate is great!!
