Great All use app
by YoshingtonPost on 2019/11/19 00:26
For any and all events you are going to that use guidebook it works out well and it is at NO cost to you which is even more convinient
Great tool with a lot of room for improvement
by JScottA on 2019/10/05 15:37
I’ve only used one guide so far and my comments may be off because there could be features missing that are school dependent. • no hyper local (beacon) support for campus location and guidance • need additional maps • need parent version if the focus is college tours • need list of potential auxiliary events (eg. volleyball game) with potential for colleges to give passes (free or purchases) within app • give food places ability to coordinate with colleges to offer reservations and make deals within app Good app with a lot of potential.
Ready set start new tools and tips to bring clients in

This session was very helpful. It was well presented with practical, easy to execute tools and great tips.
Font colors need to be more contrasting
by gnortsdc on 2019/10/03 14:14
For people with visual issues the lack of contrast in font colors makes the content hard to read. Black font on white background is best. Light gray font on white background is hard to see. Aside from the font colors, the app is fantastic.
Outside the box

A creative original thinker. What would nhappen to the social problems by asking what is working? The current model is great at putting out fires. We are beginning to concentrate on prevention
This is annoying
by Esmargot on 2019/09/04 17:22
I don’t like this at all, that is the nicest way I can put it.
Amazing App!
by ANIMExKYNG on 2019/08/26 13:18
One of the best apps I’ve seen on here and It is extremely helpful. Especially since I’m landing schedule for San Japan as well.
Disappointed
by Mphotographer on 2019/08/20 16:07
I created a guidebook last year and it worked wonderfully for my events(s). This year you have changed the reports and now I can’t see who is attending each of my events so that I know who to have name tags ready for. You are collecting the data, why can’t I run a report of event and see who is attending. This makes it impossible to plan properly.
Well done
by Nick Steffey on 2019/08/20 12:50
Very inspirational leadership discussion.
App keeps crashing
by ForgottenRec on 2019/07/27 11:33
this app keeps crashing when I try to load any event. It works about 20% of the time. This needs to be fixed.
Cannot add non convention activities
by FP1966 on 2019/06/22 02:16
The app is awesome for the actual convention events, locations and times. I am easily able to add these to my schedule. When I open my schedule and click the +, I am unable to add an event of my own, even though I click save. I cannot get it to show up on my schedule.
Good

Phenomenal

I wish every event used this service - literally get excited when I see that they are using guidebook cause then I know it’s going to be easy to navigate
Awesome to use
by Trenty Walk on 2019/06/08 16:50
This app was awesome to use for our event. Having everything in one place and tailored made things seamless.
This app is doodoo

This app is super doodoo
Obvious features missing
by Tsaroux on 2019/03/16 17:50
Guidebook team. There are basic features that are missing or not easily accessible: 1. Search is confusing. Not clear whether I am searching within a current event or for an event from the global pool. 2. Calendar and scheduling is from 1800s (way before computers). I need to be able to: A) see all events in a room and/or in a building/venue, for a day, date, the duration of the main event etc. B) see all the times for an event—when it is offered more than once. C) see events by teacher/mc/leader, eg, show me what John is teaching. The above are basic pivot features that should be built in. 3. Provide ability for events to post links to additional materials including PDFs. 4. Event feedback and reviews
Terrible
by Naomi Daniels on 2018/11/13 00:57
Hard to use app that I will not be telling anyone to use this app.
Doesn’t work.
by jennamonkey on 2018/10/18 06:06
Freezes. Can’t select or open anything. Maybe I’ll delete/reinstall, but not promising experience.
Worthless
by Mo. Mary on 2018/10/13 18:49
Diocese of Olympia is using this app for their convention. The primary use for it would be for documents. They are all links to pdfs which don't rotate and so you have to zoom and scroll each line to read it. Since it has to link to the internet each time you access the doc, you need internet connection - at a venue that doesn't have enough bandwidth to accommodate the number of attendees. Just use paper! Also... A number of the links go to "Page not Found."
It Won't Go Away
by cheese-108 on 2018/09/13 14:53
I downloaded Guidebook for an event my school was holding, but when it was done I decided to delete it from my phone to save space, but it just keeps downloading itself. Every time I try to delete the app, it ends up downloading itself later. This is the only app that has ever done this on my phone. Be cautious to download this if you have an older phone like mine.
Clear out the old events already!
by Jessaleemcgee on 2018/08/19 15:34
Trying to find a current event on this app is a pain! They still list ones from 2013! Too many to slog through. No way to filter them. And the user can’t even delete their old events. Not user friendly. Better curation and user controls are needed to make this app what it is meant to be.
Froze after launching
by WCBOUND on 2018/08/12 23:52
I followed a link to install from the university. After reading the introductory note about orientation and dismissing it the app was frozen. I had to force quit the app. Sure hope it works after re-opening... not a good first impression
Conference life saver
by Jobless but not homeless on 2018/08/11 19:04
It’s nice to pull my phone out and find the conference agenda, descriptions of the interesting sessions, and a map. Much better than carrying wrinkled papers
NEEDS OPTIONS!!!
by Wild_Rice on 2018/08/11 13:43
I am getting alerts that I never signed up for. There are no settings to pick and choose what you want alerted to.
Absolutely awful.
by winerobsy on 2018/06/16 00:37
The search function is a disaster. An absolute disaster. It can’t even find the events that I type in word-for-word that it’s showing me on the main screen. In addition, it won’t open my school’s commencement guide and won’t even find it for some reason that has yet to reveal itself. Good idea, awful in execution.
Guidebook
by Msrcia on 2018/06/12 15:22
Opens on iPad but won’t let you click to MyGuides to open yours and msg say My Guides has moved but no way to get there. Irritating. Also needs titles for attendees and be able to contact them from attendee list.
Lacks Apple Watch Support
by t from arkansas on 2018/06/11 03:27
Overall a decent app. I do wish it supported Apple Watch, however. So many apps support the watch now, especially productivity apps. It would be a great convenience if the notifications for “my schedule” popped up, or I could pull “my schedule “ up and scroll through it without having to dig my phone out of my pocket. I’m usually juggling handouts, tote bags, etc. at conferences in addition to my backpack with all my electronic needs. The additional convenience of watch support would be great!
Amazing for attendees, not so much for planners
by PDelahanty on 2018/04/03 03:40
Needs a lower level tier for convention planners between the free and first pay level...one that would allow a few more downloads for the small cons (and not necessarily more features) without spending a lot of money. As an attendee, my BIGGEST complaint is that when I’ve downloaded a guide, it should ALWAYS open to that guide during the convention dates. I hate opening the app and finding myself having to re-select the convention I’m at in order to see my schedule (where I last used the app a few hours earlier.)
Terrible for Conference Guidebook
by WSCLProf on 2018/04/01 15:42
Meeting listings do not list speakers or participants. No index of speakers or participants. No search capability for keywords. Very hard to use for any size conference.
Great app
by Lamark Martins on 2018/03/20 18:08
This app is amazing! We can find a lot of things to help us to enjoy an event even better. Thank you guys, pretty design.
Really helpful app
by Irin Son on 2018/03/20 00:06
This app has saved my life on multiple occasions when attending a conference! Of all the different types I've used, Guidebook is the easiest to use.
Not working
by Canuread on 2018/02/14 23:19
I used this for a conference two years ago and loved it. Now I’m headed to a different conference and can’t get it to switch. I finally deleted it and loaded it from the conference web site and it keeps opening on the web instead of the app. It’s a paperless conference and I have no schedule to use. Really unhappy.
Great tool for conference organizers
by calcuttaexpat123 on 2018/02/10 05:25
My company has put together lots of conferences with complicated agendas. Guidebook has been an invaluable tool for us. And it’s fairly easy to use. I also like the rating feature for different sessions in the agenda — great instant feedback!
Wrong location on map
by suzharle on 2017/10/22 19:39
As soon as I downloaded the app and opened it up as I was in transit to my conference, I saw a map which pinpointed where the hotel is. Sadly the pinpoint was not accurate and perhaps pointed to another hotel in the same chain. This caused me to visit the conference website to see which location the hotel was at to verify the pinpoint was not in the right location. Bingo, it was wrong indeed. Glad I did not get a taxi there. I hope the rest of the app is more accurate
Meh
by Norman Music on 2017/10/07 13:58
This app looks pretty nice, but fails in too many places. I downloaded the guide for my workshop, but it constantly deletes it. I’ve had to download it 5 times now. When you are in class with poor WiFi and need to know what’s next, well you are out of luck. I’ve also got it into open loops where you click open and it does nothing. And you can map addresses. That’s just stupid. Also have you seen their pricing? Why would anyone use this?
<UPDATE> How do delete guides you’ve downloaded???
by Joepz on 2017/10/03 23:25
App works well when attending conventions . Easy to find what you’re looking for and keep track of the events you want to attend.
Great idea terrible implementation
by iPhoner6327 on 2017/08/17 23:51
Need to create acct for it to work, they don&#39;t tell you that. Search doesn&#39;t work. Clunky all around to get any useful information.
Gooder life
by hermann girl on 2017/08/10 22:19
This app makes my life gooder. This app does do good. This app makes my happy.
Excellent!
by lvenok11 on 2017/08/07 23:03
Very useful information to help you navigate and stay informed.
Horrrible
by Theprowords on 2017/06/27 23:58
Complete garbage app. Constantly crashes and im always having to start all over. They should do a complete overhaul on this failure of an app. Hopefully Trashbook, I mean Guidebook is able to learn from their mistake. Though, more than likely they wont.
Missing items
by RacheRA on 2017/05/01 17:38
I&#39;m at a conference and my colleagues with non-iPhones/iPads can find the conference guide but it is not on my iPad or iPhone version of this app - really disappointed.
Conference
by AKAwoman12708 on 2017/04/07 01:00
This app was really helpful and it helped me stay connected with other members of my Sorority that were in attendance at the conference. I don&#39;t remember seeing the reminder but other than that very helpful..
Sweet app update
by frankthetank342 on 2017/03/29 04:12
Super polished app! Very useful at the last conference I attended.
Unable to download
by Tyson H on 2017/02/28 20:12
This app will not allow me to download any documents. It keeps telling me the request timed out. I know it is not my wifi as everything else works well. I can see the potential with it being useful for conferences if it were fixed.
Keeps crashing
by Team.C on 2017/02/16 06:37
Just got this app for a conference starting tomorrow and it keeps crashing! I hope it can be fixed soon...
Great App

Nice App
by DeutscheMutti on 2016/10/16 14:21
It was a pleasure to visit NJIT today and this app is helpful as not to catty the folder and materials all day. Would love to see am enhancement to drill into the schedule for more detailed descriptions.
Really helpful and useful app but...
by Briar Plessinger on 2016/08/07 07:45
it constantly crashes:(
Needs more
by seattlephotog on 2016/08/05 18:01
Nice idea and handy to look up my own schedule. But search functions are awful for a conference app. I need to know where people are presenting.
Do NOT download
by DaSlickOne on 2016/07/30 11:34
Text is too small to truly make sense of many of the descriptions. The real concern is that IT WON&#39;T DISAPPEAR FROM MY SCREEN despite 4-5 attempts to delete it!
Crashes too much
by PataponFreak on 2016/07/15 20:00
I can&#39;t open the campus map without it crashing.
Worked great!
by michael_scottinator on 2016/07/15 14:28
Always knew what I was doing (thanks to the builtin schedule) and the app worked great!
Update
by Stevee04 on 2016/07/14 06:01
Update is stuck. This should have a -2 star rating!!
A major let down
by AutumnAlchemist on 2016/06/17 13:43
Used to be an amazing app. I don&#39;t know why it suddenly needs to be linked with Facebook and I don&#39;t know why they suddenly need all of my person info. Beyond that, they aren&#39;t updated and they don&#39;t have the events I attend anymore, but I can still search for events that are two or more years old. This app used to be so good too.
Farm from free
by Staci UT on 2016/06/14 10:37
I was very disappointed when downloading this app to discover it was going to cost me $3500 to publish 1 guide. Extremely difficult for a non-profit helping children with cancer. Will find another way to communicate with those attending the events
Nearly unusable
by rlbaker on 2016/06/01 16:52
Installed at PyCon 2016 (have used it at past PyCons as well). The app is nearly unusable. Input delay is a few seconds at minimum. Scrolling stutters and lags horrendously. I&#39;m assuming theyre using a JS app framework which is a major downgrade...
Very slow
by Redwards29a on 2016/05/31 23:51
Really cool app. UI design is fine, but the app is incredibly slow. Scrolling is a pain.
Unusably slow
by benkuhn on 2016/05/30 18:14
I gave up on making a schedule because the app would hang for seconds every time I hit the add button.
Very very slow
by Cabalist on 2016/05/29 18:55
First time I downloaded the app. It is excrutiatingly slow on my iPhone 6s. I have to quit the app after about 30s and re open it to get the UI to respond. Something is wrong with this release
Error filled crash fest
by Hollz820 on 2016/05/13 13:43
Previous versions of this app were great. I updated mine and now as soon as try to open the app at the conference I&#39;m at it crashes back to home screen. Big disappointment.
Buggy and questionable value
by Living Comfort Eagle on 2016/05/09 15:12
I got more utility out of text I pasted into Notes than this sorry excuse for an app provided at the conference I am attending.
WiFi Maybe
by scottvb1 on 2016/04/09 16:07
Would have been helpful to have access to the guest WiFi network to install.
No profile pic upload
by Nelsonwriter on 2016/04/04 14:05
Great app! But sadly, the profile pic upload from my cameras photo library does not work. Tried many times but simply does not upload. Please fix.
Bugs
by Bexband on 2016/03/14 12:52
Didn&#39;t save &#34;my schedule&#34; which I had spent a lot of time generating.
NICE ONE GUIDEBOOK
by Angry 14 Year Old on 2016/02/13 20:03
Pretty good app until i got lost at my thespian festival. NICE ONE FRICKIN GUIDEBOOK!!!!
Power Hungry
by Petarius Rex on 2016/02/13 19:04
The app is useful, but it keeps reloading and checking for updates whenever I opened it. Seemed to eat up a lot of power connecting and reconnecting all the time
One thing missing...
by melanie0411 on 2016/02/06 22:32
Great app overall. Would be 5️⃣⭐️ if an Apple Watch app was available.
Log-in issues and no support
by ggentry11 on 2016/02/05 20:56
I&#39;ve downloaded the iOS app and logged in using Facebook. But if I want to log in on the website there is not way to do that with Facebook and for the life of me I cannot find away to see my email address &amp; password for your guidebook account on my app. How can I use &amp; sync my guidebooks across platforms when I cannot log in? BIG Suggestion: SUPPORT! They have no email addresses, no FAQ and now support in app or on your website.
Great app
by charlez47 on 2016/01/31 14:53
Wish all the conferences used this!
Problem with my schedule
by Cera Giles on 2016/01/01 19:11
I can only add one thing to my schedule and I want to add more things but it will not let me do so and that is not Okay.
Undone

So important to use!
by jarrul13 on 2015/11/07 03:24
I no longer have to carry large paper schedule because Guidebook app is fantastic to make it happen, thanks!
Great concept, by lacking
by Mayobarber on 2015/10/29 02:27
This is a GREAT concept to help me coordinate my schedules each day for the convention that I&#39;m going to. HOWEVER- it gives me the option to add photo ops to my schedule but not panels... Which means I can&#39;t create an actual full schedule at all... Only shows me what time my photo ops are. It&#39;s unfortunate because that makes the app pointless for me. If it worked I would give it 5 stars
Worked perfectly
by Jeff_Lewis on 2015/10/27 06:38
This app was just what I needed for my conference. Everything worked perfectly - no crashes or bugs. I wish more events had apps on Guidebook!
Needs better navigation
by Bingersol on 2015/10/02 16:16
Looks pretty good but must have way to navigate long alpha lists. Like their own list of schools using this app! Starts at A and then you have to scroll and scroll. Search is too loose and you can&#39;t easily get to S items and browse there. Several solutions have been common for years. Until implemented this app is not usable where you need a long index list. Like we have over 400 bios of people. Need sidebar or top button groups.
Crashes
by Bob Van Ess on 2015/09/30 15:16
I&#39;ve got iOS 9.01 on an iPhone 6S and the app crashes instantly soon as I try to navigate
Perpetual upgrade
by Lemur Love on 2015/08/27 19:33
This app has been &#34;loading&#34; an update on my iPad for over a week now. I can&#39;t seem to uninstall it, and when I thought I was able to, it went back to the downloading symbol when I tried to reinstall it. Does it do this for all iPad 3s?
Crashes
by 36278551846284 on 2015/08/26 21:50
I&#39;m sure this app would be great if I could actually use it, but it keeps crashing when I try to look at any guide. I&#39;ve restarted my iPhone, checked to be sure I had the latest updates, and even deleted and reinstalled the app but nothing has helped
Awesome !
by Drunken_Lemur on 2015/07/25 08:23
This little app offers a lot ! Especially useful for conventions, I also couldn&#39;t help but think the little app logo/short cut looks just like Garry&#39;s mod 😂
Could be good, but...
by ehsgurl on 2015/07/20 23:07
The app freezes when you go to the &#34;share guidebook&#34; option. And it doesn&#39;t just freeze the app, but my whole phone. Some guides will not load, and the form submission option is very confusing. I think the app has potential to be very good and work extremely well. It would be very nice to have these kinks worked out.
Terrible
by OolongBee on 2015/05/26 22:04
This app deleted all (ALL!) of my notes from a 5-day professional conference. Received no response from Guidebook support. Attempted to log in after a long duration hoping notes were miraculously restored--forgot my password and never received a reset password email. Not recommended.
Currently crashes when viewing details
by billy'n'holly on 2015/05/16 11:10
The app seems auspicious in features, but frankly very poorly tested against real-world content using their app. I&#39;d like to try using it, but frankly there&#39;s little here that can&#39;t be accomplished already with a simplistic website.
Poor Guide to OHare
by crtee on 2015/05/11 15:07
Difficult to set up my flights to/from OHare. In fact cannot get flight out entered. Only flight in. I&#39;m just passing through OHare today and wanted an airport guide. Doesn&#39;t seem to work.
Crashed when looking at a scheduled event
by TheFutureMe on 2015/05/09 16:29
About all this is good for is looking at a schedule. Trying to view details crashed the app. Would not recommend.

Nothing new here, ugly app
by AnnoyedLJD on 2015/02/28 19:05
If you&#39;re reading this you&#39;re likely considering using this to organize your next event. As an event attendee I can say this app doesn&#39;t do anything a printed itinerary doesn&#39;t do better. Static maps (Google does better), a static itinerary, and weak implementations with social media. It has a photo stream, but no one uses it. Where&#39;s the messaging? Where are quality maps? App just takes up space on your attendees devices and a line item in your budget sheet. You can do better.
Great conference app
by mitya_103 on 2015/02/26 17:50
Finally, a conference app worth using! I hope every conference I go to from now on makes use of this app!
Event saver!
by Maxjosino on 2015/02/26 09:37
One of the best things in this app is the simple way how I can schedule the upcoming events in my own schedule list. For sure, the best event guide app and it is right on my pocket.
Love this thing. Great at Katsucon
by Sean DeMild on 2015/02/14 07:49
I like this so much that I&#39;m taking time to review it. I&#39;m currently at Katsucon which has tons of events that I want to go to. This app has a nice feature where I can bookmark everything I want to go to and then have it remind me so I have time to get in line and not miss it. It also has lots of other info that Katsucon provided them in digital form, but I&#39;m mainly using the app to quickly plan a schedule for myself. Very useful.
Ugh
by Jordylove92 on 2015/01/30 14:39
I appreciate the idea of saving paper (even though they went ahead and put a million paper things in the bags and don&#39;t provide recycling bins), but without wifi, it seriously took forever to download. Why is there not a paper option for seeing workshops/maps?
Saves Trees
by Camas Band Nerd on 2015/01/30 03:34
Seems to work just fine. Better then the bulky program I usually have to carry around at conferences.

Sorting Guides

by Mljm89 on 2014/10/10 19:47
I am so excited to share this app with our conference attendees next month. I really hope that it gets updated to fix the crash when trying to upload/view photos. I really want to be able to use that feature.

The app is awesome for the actual convention events, locations and times. I am easily able to add these to my schedule. When I open my schedule and click the +, I am unable to add an event of my own, even though I click save. I cannot get it to show up on my schedule.

Disappointed
by Mphotographer on 2019/08/20 16:07
I created a guidebook last year and it worked wonderfully for my events(s). This year you have changed the reports and now I can’t see who is attending each of my events so that I know who to have name tags ready for. You are collecting the data, why can’t I run a report of event and see who is attending. This makes it impossible to plan properly.
Awesome to use
by Trenty Walk on 2019/06/08 16:50
This app was awesome to use for our event. Having everything in one place and tailored made things seamless.
Font colors need to be more contrasting
by gnortsdc on 2019/10/03 14:14
For people with visual issues the lack of contrast in font colors makes the content hard to read. Black font on white background is best. Light gray font on white background is hard to see. Aside from the font colors, the app is fantastic.
Amazing App!
by ANIMExKYNG on 2019/08/26 13:18
One of the best apps I’ve seen on here and It is extremely helpful. Especially since I’m landing schedule for San Japan as well.

Best thing to happen to conventions since cosplay
by Tomboyishrofl on 2012/03/30 16:07
I would feel lost without this app. I used to make schedules by hand or computer until I found conventionist (that&#39;s what guidebook used to be called). Now with guidebook, It&#39;s super easy to not only plan your schedule ahead but also to figure things out on the fly. Using the maps for example of you get lost, or finding somewhere to eat, or stayin updated with breaking announcements or news from the convention. My favorite feature is how you can view the schedule and then add events from it to &#34;my schedule&#34;, so that you only see what you want to, and then you can get updates or reminders on your mobile device in case you forget something.
The Anime Convention's Best Friend
by OtakuAsuna on 2013/10/04 12:03
Got this app back in 2011 for Otakon and I have been using it every year since. Guidebook is fantastic and makes your con panel experience much easier. I No longer have to carry large paper schedules, and whenever a panel time changes, you get a push notification. Also scheduling panels is so easy, just click add to schedule and you can set a time for it to remind you. Also it makes browsing convention programming much easier. Guidebook is definitely a must-have for any convention attendee!
Excellent medium for convention guidebooks
by Flash Sheridan on 2011/05/28 17:54
This is an excellent medium for conventions to provide electronic guidebooks, with sections for maps, schedules, and guests. The quality of the guides, of course, depends on the individual convention, of course; for instance, the BayCon guide inexcusably omits the names of panelists from meeting listings. The only weakness I’ve noticed so far in the app itself is that, while you can set a reminder for ten minutes before a meeting, you can’t set one for five minutes before, nor after the meeting.
Love this thing. Great at Katsucon
by Sean DeMild on 2015/02/14 07:49
I like this so much that I&#39;m taking time to review it. I&#39;m currently at Katsucon which has tons of events that I want to go to. This app has a nice feature where I can bookmark everything I want to go to and then have it remind me so I have time to get in line and not miss it. It also has lots of other info that Katsucon provided them in digital form, but I&#39;m mainly using the app to quickly plan a schedule for myself. Very useful.
Lacks Apple Watch Support
by t from arkansas on 2018/06/11 03:27
Overall a decent app. I do wish it supported Apple Watch, however. So many apps support the watch now, especially productivity apps. It would be a great convenience if the notifications for “my schedule” popped up, or I could pull “my schedule “ up and scroll through it without having to dig my phone out of my pocket. I’m usually juggling handouts, tote bags, etc. at conferences in addition to my backpack with all my electronic needs. The additional convenience of watch support would be great!
Amazing for attendees, not so much for planners
by PDelahanty on 2018/04/03 03:40
Needs a lower level tier for convention planners between the free and first pay level...one that would allow a few more downloads for the small cons (and not necessarily more features) without spending a lot of money. As an attendee, my BIGGEST complaint is that when I’ve downloaded a guide, it should ALWAYS open to that guide during the convention dates. I hate opening the app and finding myself having to re-select the convention I’m at in order to see my schedule (where I last used the app a few hours earlier.)
One of the best
by BarrelCactus on 2013/11/10 22:46
I used this app at MineCon 2013. It was my first con and the app correctly guided me to where I needed to go. You can choose how early you want the alert for the event, and the notification in the lock screen even tells you what room the event is! After using GuideBook at Minecon 2013, I see why this app has 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Nice, but I wish that...
by Nysiros on 2013/08/17 14:42
Like another reviewer here, I think that this app is really useful and has a lot of potential, but I do wish that you could narrow down by Location. I thought the purpose of this app was to find through Guidebook something interesting that&#39;s going on, in which case you should be able to narrow down by location. But if the purpose is just to find a schedule for an event that you already know is happening then it is great as is. Lovely design.
Nice, room for improvement
by Randco on 2013/05/30 15:17
Must have: to see schedule conflicts noted as I select the item (or at least in &#34;My Schedule&#34;). When I select a 50 minute session at noon, there should be SOMEthing that tells me, &#34;Hey dummy, that cuts in to the 12:30 event you wanted.&#34; Also, prioritization of the events. If a session is running long, but the signing session is about to start, I want to see/hear/feel a notification. Nice to have: Maybe it&#39;s just the event I&#39;m going to, but allowing images in the description / body would be great.
Wrong location on map
by suzharle on 2017/10/22 19:39
As soon as I downloaded the app and opened it up as I was in transit to my conference, I saw a map which pinpointed where the hotel is. Sadly the pinpoint was not accurate and perhaps pointed to another hotel in the same chain. This caused me to visit the conference website to see which location the hotel was at to verify the pinpoint was not in the right location. Bingo, it was wrong indeed. Glad I did not get a taxi there. I hope the rest of the app is more accurate
Log-in issues and no support
by ggentry11 on 2016/02/05 20:56
I&#39;ve downloaded the iOS app and logged in using Facebook. But if I want to log in on the website there is not way to do that with Facebook and for the life of me I cannot find away to see my email address &amp; password for your guidebook account on my app. How can I use &amp; sync my guidebooks across platforms when I cannot log in? BIG Suggestion: SUPPORT! They have no email addresses, no FAQ and now support in app or on your website.
Needs better navigation
by Bingersol on 2015/10/02 16:16
Looks pretty good but must have way to navigate long alpha lists. Like their own list of schools using this app! Starts at A and then you have to scroll and scroll. Search is too loose and you can&#39;t easily get to S items and browse there. Several solutions have been common for years. Until implemented this app is not usable where you need a long index list. Like we have over 400 bios of people. Need sidebar or top button groups.
Nice, but one suggestion:
by Desdra4 on 2012/09/05 20:02
This is a neat little app and I&#39;m looking forward to using it at NDK but one ability I really wish it had is to be able to make your own task and set a time frame so it would show up under the &#34;my schedule&#34; area instead of having to juggle between &#34;my schedule&#34; and the &#34;things to do list&#34;. This would make it much more convenient for us staffers, attendees too probably.
Awesome app
by ladysunday on 2012/04/08 13:23
Used this at PAX East 2012 and it worked really well. I loved being able to see the schedule of the panels and what-not without having to dig through my bag for the full schedule. Plus, when times were changed or things got cancelled, I had the updated schedule on my phone. Really nice app!
Very helpful!
by Golden Child PR on 2014/06/26 23:48
Just found out about this app, so I&#39;ve only used it to help me plan my schedule for one event (Anime Expo 2014) but it had everything about the event on there, which was amazingly helpful and convenient! I instantly loved this app, can&#39;t recommend it enough for upcoming events you might attend.
Meh
by Norman Music on 2017/10/07 13:58
This app looks pretty nice, but fails in too many places. I downloaded the guide for my workshop, but it constantly deletes it. I’ve had to download it 5 times now. When you are in class with poor WiFi and need to know what’s next, well you are out of luck. I’ve also got it into open loops where you click open and it does nothing. And you can map addresses. That’s just stupid. Also have you seen their pricing? Why would anyone use this?
A useful idea
by GradyBear on 2014/08/09 02:06
There could be a couple of changes/additions to help look up schedules. If you could make it look up all schedules of a particular room, or to be able to see the old-style guidelines from previous years. Also, a filter for particular videos, panels, or discussion boards would be nice, instead of having it all bunched together in a timeslot. But, for now, it is a slightly useful app.

Indispensable
by Ckibbey0 on 2012/11/26 19:45
This was used by the organizers of Minecon2012 at Disney Paris. Loved that I could pull out my phone (with no connectivity) and see everything at a glance. No sorting through assorted paper itineraries and easy to make decisions with my son on which panels to attend with the flexibility to change plans on the fly.
Needs one more thing!
by Nanster Panster on 2014/03/06 21:02
I was so excited when the trade show I attend twice a year introduced this app. However there is one major flaw that forces me to use the paper show guide instead...It need the ability to organize booths by booth number! That way when walking a show floor, you can look down at your and see which booths you need to visit in that aisle! Please add this feature!
Worthless
by Mo. Mary on 2018/10/13 18:49
Diocese of Olympia is using this app for their convention. The primary use for it would be for documents. They are all links to pdfs which don&#39;t rotate and so you have to zoom and scroll each line to read it. Since it has to link to the internet each time you access the doc, you need internet connection - at a venue that doesn&#39;t have enough bandwidth to accommodate the number of attendees. Just use paper! Also... A number of the links go to &#34;Page not Found.&#34;
Great app, recent update crash fix
by Sue-with-a-shoe on 2014/05/19 23:12
This is a great app, especially for keeping track of your chosen schedule at a large event. I&#39;ve had it for a few years now. Recent update was crashing at launch on iPhone 4s. Delete &amp; reinstall fixes it.
Nothing new here, ugly app
by AnnoyedLJD on 2015/02/28 19:05
If you&#39;re reading this you&#39;re likely considering using this to organize your next event. As an event attendee I can say this app doesn&#39;t do anything a printed itinerary doesn&#39;t do better. Static maps (Google does better), a static itinerary, and weak implementations with social media. It has a photo stream, but no one uses it. Where&#39;s the messaging? Where are quality maps? App just takes up space on your attendees devices and a line item in your budget sheet. You can do better.
Does what it says, easy, nice & clean app
by firesaint on 2012/04/12 04:33
Title pretty much says it. Very easy to navigate &amp; use, not a lot of bells &amp; whistles but everything you need. Plus, guidebot is cute (more guidebot!) Could see a lot of folks using this, makes trade shows easy to navigate. Many thanks!
Very good but needs two major tweaks
by Egerias on 2014/01/30 05:58
Really good app. However, (1) make &#34;My Schedule&#34; sync across all apps. Ridiculous to have to enter schedule 2x (iPad and iPad mini). (2) When you enter an event on your schedule on a multi-day event, app should take you back to the day you are on, not the 1st day of the event. A tad frustrating but overall really good app.
Great App
by Serry01 on 2011/06/08 03:58
Very useful for conventions. I don&#39;t need to rely on my map or program at all now and I don&#39;t forget to go to panels I wanted to visit. The only thing that I&#39;d recommend is a clear way to delete a guide. I downloaded the wrong one and now I can&#39;t get rid of it.
Easy to use, has everything
by l.hero on 2014/08/21 17:46
The session schedules are extremely convenient, since they link you to where the rooms are on an interactive map. Also other things are cool too.
Great App Love it!
by Sailor Star Rainbow on 2012/08/23 19:14
I used this app last year at a animecon. I go to the are going to use the app again this year. Can&#39;t wait for Mechacon 8 all ready. But like other people have said. The alarm&#39;s did go off at the wrong times once in a while.
Just what I've been looking for.
by Shoom'lah on 2012/11/13 06:57
There are so many crappy, proprietary convention apps out there that guidebook is a breath of fresh air- easy to use, functional, and BY GUM it works offline. Honestly, I wish every convention, conference or festival I went to used this.
Great but...
by suchabill on 2013/06/25 01:58
Love being able to create my own schedule for a week long summer symposium that has about 250 or more separate events. Problem is I created my schedule on my iPad but it doesn&#39;t sync to Guidebook on my iPhone? Really? Am I missing something? Hope this issue is alleviate ASAP.
Great app
by Kristine0921 on 2013/07/21 18:12
Clean design with beautiful interface and great user experience. Easy to make last minute changes and has great features. They just released interactive maps which is very helpful. Overall a really great app.
Great concept, by lacking
by Mayobarber on 2015/10/29 02:27
This is a GREAT concept to help me coordinate my schedules each day for the convention that I&#39;m going to. HOWEVER- it gives me the option to add photo ops to my schedule but not panels... Which means I can&#39;t create an actual full schedule at all... Only shows me what time my photo ops are. It&#39;s unfortunate because that makes the app pointless for me. If it worked I would give it 5 stars
Obvious features missing
by Tsaroux on 2019/03/16 17:50
Guidebook team. There are basic features that are missing or not easily accessible: 1. Search is confusing. Not clear whether I am searching within a current event or for an event from the global pool. 2. Calendar and scheduling is from 1800s (way before computers). I need to be able to: A) see all events in a room and/or in a building/venue, for a day, date, the duration of the main event etc. B) see all the times for an event—when it is offered more than once. C) see events by teacher/mc/leader, eg, show me what John is teaching. The above are basic pivot features that should be built in. 3. Provide ability for events to post links to additional materials including PDFs. 4. Event feedback and reviews
Clear out the old events already!
by Jessaleemcgee on 2018/08/19 15:34
Trying to find a current event on this app is a pain! They still list ones from 2013! Too many to slog through. No way to filter them. And the user can’t even delete their old events. Not user friendly. Better curation and user controls are needed to make this app what it is meant to be.
Could be good, but...
by ehsgurl on 2015/07/20 23:07
The app freezes when you go to the &#34;share guidebook&#34; option. And it doesn&#39;t just freeze the app, but my whole phone. Some guides will not load, and the form submission option is very confusing. I think the app has potential to be very good and work extremely well. It would be very nice to have these kinks worked out.

Great tool with a lot of room for improvement
by JScottA on 2019/10/05 15:37
I’ve only used one guide so far and my comments may be off because there could be features missing that are school dependent. • no hyper local (beacon) support for campus location and guidance • need additional maps • need parent version if the focus is college tours • need list of potential auxiliary events (eg. volleyball game) with potential for colleges to give passes (free or purchases) within app • give food places ability to coordinate with colleges to offer reservations and make deals within app Good app with a lot of potential.

by FP1966 on 2019/06/22 02:16
The app is awesome for the actual convention events, locations and times. I am easily able to add these to my schedule. When I open my schedule and click the +, I am unable to add an event of my own, even though I click save. I cannot get it to show up on my schedule.

It Won't Go Away
by cheese-108 on 2018/09/13 14:53
I downloaded Guidebook for an event my school was holding, but when it was done I decided to delete it from my phone to save space, but it just keeps downloading itself. Every time I try to delete the app, it ends up downloading itself later. This is the only app that has ever done this on my phone. Be cautious to download this if you have an older phone like mine.

by Wild_Rice on 2018/08/11 13:43
I am getting alerts that I never signed up for. There are no settings to pick and choose what you want alerted to.
Absolutely awful.
by winerobsy on 2018/06/16 00:37
The search function is a disaster. An absolute disaster. It can’t even find the events that I type in word-for-word that it’s showing me on the main screen. In addition, it won’t open my school’s commencement guide and won’t even find it for some reason that has yet to reveal itself. Good idea, awful in execution.
Guidebook
by Msrcia on 2018/06/12 15:22
Opens on iPad but won’t let you click to MyGuides to open yours and msg say My Guides has moved but no way to get there. Irritating. Also needs titles for attendees and be able to contact them from attendee list.
Lacks Apple Watch Support
by t from arkansas on 2018/06/11 03:27
Overall a decent app. I do wish it supported Apple Watch, however. So many apps support the watch now, especially productivity apps. It would be a great convenience if the notifications for “my schedule” popped up, or I could pull “my schedule “ up and scroll through it without having to dig my phone out of my pocket. I’m usually juggling handouts, tote bags, etc. at conferences in addition to my backpack with all my electronic needs. The additional convenience of watch support would be great!
Amazing for attendees, not so much for planners
by PDelahanty on 2018/04/03 03:40
Needs a lower level tier for convention planners between the free and first pay level...one that would allow a few more downloads for the small cons (and not necessarily more features) without spending a lot of money.

Terrible for Conference Guidebook
by WSCLProf on 2018/04/01 15:42
Meeting listings do not list speakers or participants. No index of speakers or participants. No search capability for keywords. Very hard to use for any size conference.

I used this for a conference two years ago and loved it. Now I’m headed to a different conference and can’t get it to switch. I finally deleted it and loaded it from the conference web site and it keeps opening on the web instead of the app. It’s a paperless conference and I have no schedule to use. Really unhappy.
Great tool for conference organizers
by calcuttaexpat123 on 2018/02/10 05:25
My company has put together lots of conferences with complicated agendas. Guidebook has been an invaluable tool for us. And it’s fairly easy to use. I also like the rating feature for different sessions in the agenda — great instant feedback!
Wrong location on map
by suzharle on 2017/10/22 19:39
As soon as I downloaded the app and opened it up as I was in transit to my conference, I saw a map which pinpointed where the hotel is. Sadly the pinpoint was not accurate and perhaps pointed to another hotel in the same chain. This caused me to visit the conference website to see which location the hotel was at to verify the pinpoint was not in the right location. Bingo, it was wrong indeed. Glad I did not get a taxi there. I hope the rest of the app is more accurate
Meh
by Norman Music on 2017/10/07 13:58
This app looks pretty nice, but fails in too many places. I downloaded the guide for my workshop, but it constantly deletes it. I’ve had to download it 5 times now. When you are in class with poor WiFi and need to know what’s next, well you are out of luck. I’ve also got it into open loops where you click open and it does nothing. And you can map addresses. That’s just stupid. Also have you seen their pricing? Why would anyone use this?
<UPDATE> How do delete guides you’ve downloaded???
by Joepz on 2017/10/03 23:25
App works well when attending conventions . Easy to find what you’re looking for and keep track of the events you want to attend.
Great idea terrible implementation
by iPhoner6327 on 2017/08/17 23:51
Need to create acct for it to work, they don&#39;t tell you that. Search doesn&#39;t work. Clunky all around to get any useful information.
Gooder life
by hermann girl on 2017/08/10 22:19
This app makes my life gooder. This app does do good. This app makes my happy.
Excellent!
by lvenok11 on 2017/08/07 23:03
Very useful information to help you navigate and stay informed.
Horrrible
by Theprowords on 2017/06/27 23:58
Complete garbage app. Constantly crashes and im always having to start all over. They should do a complete overhaul on this failure of an app. Hopefully Trashbook, I mean Guidebook is able to learn from their mistake. Though, more than likely they wont.
Missing items
by RacheRA on 2017/05/01 17:38
I&#39;m at a conference and my colleagues with non-iPhones/iPads can find the conference guide but it is not on my iPad or iPhone version of this app - really disappointed.
Conference
by AKAwoman12708 on 2017/04/07 01:00
This app was really helpful and it helped me stay connected with other members of my Sorority that were in attendance at the conference. I don&#39;t remember seeing the reminder but other than that very helpful..
Sweet app update
by frankthetank342 on 2017/03/29 04:12
Super polished app! Very useful at the last conference I attended.
Unable to download
by Tyson H on 2017/02/28 20:12
This app will not allow me to download any documents. It keeps telling me the request timed out. I know it is not my wifi as everything else works well. I can see the potential with it being useful for conferences if it were fixed.
Keeps crashing
by Team.C on 2017/02/16 06:37
Just got this app for a conference starting tomorrow and it keeps crashing! I hope it can be fixed soon...
Great App
by Instaperfect! on 2017/01/25 15:46
Super convenient and helpful.
Nice App
by DeutscheMutti on 2016/10/16 14:21
It was a pleasure to visit NJIT today and this app is helpful as not to catty the folder and materials all day. Would love to see am enhancement to drill into the schedule for more detailed descriptions.
Really helpful and useful app but...
by Briar Plessinger on 2016/08/07 07:45
it constantly crashes:(
Needs more
by seattlephotog on 2016/08/05 18:01
Nice idea and handy to look up my own schedule. But search functions are awful for a conference app. I need to know where people are presenting.
Do NOT download
by DaSlickOne on 2016/07/30 11:34
Text is too small to truly make sense of many of the descriptions. The real concern is that IT WON&#39;T DISAPPEAR FROM MY SCREEN despite 4-5 attempts to delete it!
Crashes too much
by PataponFreak on 2016/07/15 20:00
I can&#39;t open the campus map without it crashing.
Worked great!
by michael_scottinator on 2016/07/15 14:28
Always knew what I was doing (thanks to the builtin schedule) and the app worked great!
Update
by Stevee04 on 2016/07/14 06:01
Update is stuck. This should have a -2 star rating!!
A major let down
by AutumnAlchemist on 2016/06/17 13:43
Used to be an amazing app. I don&#39;t know why it suddenly needs to be linked with Facebook and I don&#39;t know why they suddenly need all of my person info. Beyond that, they aren&#39;t updated and they don&#39;t have the events I attend anymore, but I can still search for events that are two or more years old. This app used to be so good too.
Farm from free
by Staci UT on 2016/06/14 10:37
I was very disappointed when downloading this app to discover it was going to cost me $3500 to publish 1 guide. Extremely difficult for a non-profit helping children with cancer. Will find another way to communicate with those attending the events
Nearly unusable
by rlbaker on 2016/06/01 16:52
Installed at PyCon 2016 (have used it at past PyCons as well). The app is nearly unusable. Input delay is a few seconds at minimum. Scrolling stutters and lags horrendously. I&#39;m assuming theyre using a JS app framework which is a major downgrade...
Very slow
by Redwards29a on 2016/05/31 23:51
Really cool app. UI design is fine, but the app is incredibly slow. Scrolling is a pain.
Unusably slow
by benkuhn on 2016/05/30 18:14
I gave up on making a schedule because the app would hang for seconds every time I hit the add button.
Very very slow
by Cabalist on 2016/05/29 18:55
First time I downloaded the app. It is excrutiatingly slow on my iPhone 6s. I have to quit the app after about 30s and re open it to get the UI to respond. Something is wrong with this release
Error filled crash fest
by Hollz820 on 2016/05/13 13:43
Previous versions of this app were great. I updated mine and now as soon as try to open the app at the conference I&#39;m at it crashes back to home screen. Big disappointment.
Buggy and questionable value
by Living Comfort Eagle on 2016/05/09 15:12
I got more utility out of text I pasted into Notes than this sorry excuse for an app provided at the conference I am attending.
WiFi Maybe
by scottvb1 on 2016/04/09 16:07
Would have been helpful to have access to the guest WiFi network to install.
No profile pic upload
by Nelsonwriter on 2016/04/04 14:05

Bugs

NICE ONE GUIDEBOOK
by Angry 14 Year Old on 2016/02/13 20:03
Pretty good app until i got lost at my thespian festival. NICE ONE FRICKIN GUIDEBOOK!!!!
Power Hungry
by Petarius Rex on 2016/02/13 19:04
The app is useful, but it keeps reloading and checking for updates whenever I opened it. Seemed to eat up a lot of power connecting and reconnecting all the time
One thing missing...
by melanie0411 on 2016/02/06 22:32
Great app overall. Would be 5️⃣⭐️ if an Apple Watch app was available.
Log-in issues and no support
by ggentry11 on 2016/02/05 20:56
I&#39;ve downloaded the iOS app and logged in using Facebook. But if I want to log in on the website there is not way to do that with Facebook and for the life of me I cannot find away to see my email address &amp; password for your guidebook account on my app. How can I use &amp; sync my guidebooks across platforms when I cannot log in? BIG Suggestion: SUPPORT! They have no email addresses, no FAQ and now support in app or on your website.
Great app
by charlez47 on 2016/01/31 14:53

Problem with my schedule
by Cera Giles on 2016/01/01 19:11
I can only add one thing to my schedule and I want to add more things but it will not let me do so and that is not Okay.

by jarrul13 on 2015/11/07 03:24
I no longer have to carry large paper schedule because Guidebook app is fantastic to make it happen, thanks!
Great concept, by lacking
by Mayobarber on 2015/10/29 02:27
This is a GREAT concept to help me coordinate my schedules each day for the convention that I&#39;m going to. HOWEVER- it gives me the option to add photo ops to my schedule but not panels... Which means I can&#39;t create an actual full schedule at all... Only shows me what time my photo ops are. It&#39;s unfortunate because that makes the app pointless for me. If it worked I would give it 5 stars
Worked perfectly
by Jeff_Lewis on 2015/10/27 06:38
This app was just what I needed for my conference. Everything worked perfectly - no crashes or bugs. I wish more events had apps on Guidebook!
Needs better navigation
by Bingersol on 2015/10/02 16:16
Looks pretty good but must have way to navigate long alpha lists. Like their own list of schools using this app! Starts at A and then you have to scroll and scroll. Search is too loose and you can&#39;t easily get to S items and browse there. Several solutions have been common for years. Until implemented this app is not usable where you need a long index list. Like we have over 400 bios of people. Need sidebar or top button groups.
Crashes
by Bob Van Ess on 2015/09/30 15:16
I&#39;ve got iOS 9.01 on an iPhone 6S and the app crashes instantly soon as I try to navigate
Perpetual upgrade
by Lemur Love on 2015/08/27 19:33
This app has been &#34;loading&#34; an update on my iPad for over a week now. I can&#39;t seem to uninstall it, and when I thought I was able to, it went back to the downloading symbol when I tried to reinstall it. Does it do this for all iPad 3s?
Crashes
by 36278551846284 on 2015/08/26 21:50
I&#39;m sure this app would be great if I could actually use it, but it keeps crashing when I try to look at any guide. I&#39;ve restarted my iPhone, checked to be sure I had the latest updates, and even deleted and reinstalled the app but nothing has helped
Awesome !
by Drunken_Lemur on 2015/07/25 08:23
This little app offers a lot ! Especially useful for conventions, I also couldn&#39;t help but think the little app logo/short cut looks just like Garry&#39;s mod 😂
Could be good, but...
by ehsgurl on 2015/07/20 23:07
The app freezes when you go to the &#34;share guidebook&#34; option. And it doesn&#39;t just freeze the app, but my whole phone. Some guides will not load, and the form submission option is very confusing. I think the app has potential to be very good and work extremely well. It would be very nice to have these kinks worked out.
Terrible
by OolongBee on 2015/05/26 22:04
This app deleted all (ALL!) of my notes from a 5-day professional conference. Received no response from Guidebook support. Attempted to log in after a long duration hoping notes were miraculously restored--forgot my password and never received a reset password email. Not recommended.
Currently crashes when viewing details
by billy'n'holly on 2015/05/16 11:10
The app seems auspicious in features, but frankly very poorly tested against real-world content using their app. I&#39;d like to try using it, but frankly there&#39;s little here that can&#39;t be accomplished already with a simplistic website.
Poor Guide to OHare
by crtee on 2015/05/11 15:07
Difficult to set up my flights to/from OHare. In fact cannot get flight out entered. Only flight in. I&#39;m just passing through OHare today and wanted an airport guide. Doesn&#39;t seem to work.
Crashed when looking at a scheduled event
by TheFutureMe on 2015/05/09 16:29
About all this is good for is looking at a schedule. Trying to view details crashed the app. Would not recommend.

Nothing new here, ugly app
by AnnoyedLJD on 2015/02/28 19:05
If you&#39;re reading this you&#39;re likely considering using this to organize your next event. As an event attendee I can say this app doesn&#39;t do anything a printed itinerary doesn&#39;t do better. Static maps (Google does better), a static itinerary, and weak implementations with social media. It has a photo stream, but no one uses it. Where&#39;s the messaging? Where are quality maps? App just takes up space on your attendees devices and a line item in your budget sheet. You can do better.
Great conference app
by mitya_103 on 2015/02/26 17:50
Finally, a conference app worth using! I hope every conference I go to from now on makes use of this app!
Event saver!
by Maxjosino on 2015/02/26 09:37
One of the best things in this app is the simple way how I can schedule the upcoming events in my own schedule list. For sure, the best event guide app and it is right on my pocket.
Love this thing. Great at Katsucon
by Sean DeMild on 2015/02/14 07:49
I like this so much that I&#39;m taking time to review it. I&#39;m currently at Katsucon which has tons of events that I want to go to. This app has a nice feature where I can bookmark everything I want to go to and then have it remind me so I have time to get in line and not miss it. It also has lots of other info that Katsucon provided them in digital form, but I&#39;m mainly using the app to quickly plan a schedule for myself. Very useful.
Ugh
by Jordylove92 on 2015/01/30 14:39
I appreciate the idea of saving paper (even though they went ahead and put a million paper things in the bags and don&#39;t provide recycling bins), but without wifi, it seriously took forever to download. Why is there not a paper option for seeing workshops/maps?
Saves Trees
by Camas Band Nerd on 2015/01/30 03:34
Seems to work just fine. Better then the bulky program I usually have to carry around at conferences.
Next best things
by dillon2011 on 2015/01/27 19:39
Slow clap for the developers behind this app 👏👏👏👏👏
Fabulous!

Sorting Guides
by iPhone67 on 2014/12/06 04:01
There is currently capability in this app. I would like both an alphabetical search and a &#34;drag &amp; drop&#34; search [sort as I choose] capability in an upcoming update.
No Family Sharing

Awesome App!
by Mljm89 on 2014/10/10 19:47
I am so excited to share this app with our conference attendees next month. I really hope that it gets updated to fix the crash when trying to upload/view photos. I really want to be able to use that feature.
Phenomenal
by jbisoe on 2019/06/10 19:35
I wish every event used this service - literally get excited when I see that they are using guidebook cause then I know it’s going to be easy to navigate
Cannot add non convention activities
by FP1966 on 2019/06/22 02:16
The app is awesome for the actual convention events, locations and times. I am easily able to add these to my schedule. When I open my schedule and click the +, I am unable to add an event of my own, even though I click save. I cannot get it to show up on my schedule.
Great tool with a lot of room for improvement
by JScottA on 2019/10/05 15:37
I’ve only used one guide so far and my comments may be off because there could be features missing that are school dependent. • no hyper local (beacon) support for campus location and guidance • need additional maps • need parent version if the focus is college tours • need list of potential auxiliary events (eg. volleyball game) with potential for colleges to give passes (free or purchases) within app • give food places ability to coordinate with colleges to offer reservations and make deals within app Good app with a lot of potential.
Outside the box
by joan gay on 2019/09/05 18:36
A creative original thinker. What would nhappen to the social problems by asking what is working? The current model is great at putting out fires. We are beginning to concentrate on prevention
Great All use app
by YoshingtonPost on 2019/11/19 00:26
For any and all events you are going to that use guidebook it works out well and it is at NO cost to you which is even more convinient
Ready set start new tools and tips to bring clients in

Disappointed
by Mphotographer on 2019/08/20 16:07
I created a guidebook last year and it worked wonderfully for my events(s). This year you have changed the reports and now I can’t see who is attending each of my events so that I know who to have name tags ready for. You are collecting the data, why can’t I run a report of event and see who is attending. This makes it impossible to plan properly.
Awesome to use
by Trenty Walk on 2019/06/08 16:50
This app was awesome to use for our event. Having everything in one place and tailored made things seamless.
Font colors need to be more contrasting
by gnortsdc on 2019/10/03 14:14
For people with visual issues the lack of contrast in font colors makes the content hard to read. Black font on white background is best. Light gray font on white background is hard to see. Aside from the font colors, the app is fantastic.
Amazing App!
by ANIMExKYNG on 2019/08/26 13:18
One of the best apps I’ve seen on here and It is extremely helpful. Especially since I’m landing schedule for San Japan as well.
Well done

Best thing to happen to conventions since cosplay
by Tomboyishrofl on 2012/03/30 16:07
I would feel lost without this app. I used to make schedules by hand or computer until I found conventionist (that&#39;s what guidebook used to be called). Now with guidebook, It&#39;s super easy to not only plan your schedule ahead but also to figure things out on the fly. Using the maps for example of you get lost, or finding somewhere to eat, or stayin updated with breaking announcements or news from the convention. My favorite feature is how you can view the schedule and then add events from it to &#34;my schedule&#34;, so that you only see what you want to, and then you can get updates or reminders on your mobile device in case you forget something.
The Anime Convention's Best Friend
by OtakuAsuna on 2013/10/04 12:03
Got this app back in 2011 for Otakon and I have been using it every year since. Guidebook is fantastic and makes your con panel experience much easier. I No longer have to carry large paper schedules, and whenever a panel time changes, you get a push notification. Also scheduling panels is so easy, just click add to schedule and you can set a time for it to remind you. Also it makes browsing convention programming much easier. Guidebook is definitely a must-have for any convention attendee!
Excellent medium for convention guidebooks
by Flash Sheridan on 2011/05/28 17:54
This is an excellent medium for conventions to provide electronic guidebooks, with sections for maps, schedules, and guests. The quality of the guides, of course, depends on the individual convention, of course; for instance, the BayCon guide inexcusably omits the names of panelists from meeting listings. The only weakness I’ve noticed so far in the app itself is that, while you can set a reminder for ten minutes before a meeting, you can’t set one for five minutes before, nor after the meeting.
Love this thing. Great at Katsucon
by Sean DeMild on 2015/02/14 07:49

Lacks Apple Watch Support
by t from arkansas on 2018/06/11 03:27
Overall a decent app. I do wish it supported Apple Watch, however. So many apps support the watch now, especially productivity apps. It would be a great convenience if the notifications for “my schedule” popped up, or I could pull “my schedule “ up and scroll through it without having to dig my phone out of my pocket. I’m usually juggling handouts, tote bags, etc. at conferences in addition to my backpack with all my electronic needs. The additional convenience of watch support would be great!
Amazing for attendees, not so much for planners
by PDelahanty on 2018/04/03 03:40
Needs a lower level tier for convention planners between the free and first pay level...one that would allow a few more downloads for the small cons (and not necessarily more features) without spending a lot of money. As an attendee, my BIGGEST complaint is that when I’ve downloaded a guide, it should ALWAYS open to that guide during the convention dates. I hate opening the app and finding myself having to re-select the convention I’m at in order to see my schedule (where I last used the app a few hours earlier.)
One of the best
by BarrelCactus on 2013/11/10 22:46
I used this app at MineCon 2013. It was my first con and the app correctly guided me to where I needed to go. You can choose how early you want the alert for the event, and the notification in the lock screen even tells you what room the event is! After using GuideBook at Minecon 2013, I see why this app has 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Nice, but I wish that...
by Nysiros on 2013/08/17 14:42
Like another reviewer here, I think that this app is really useful and has a lot of potential, but I do wish that you could narrow down by Location. I thought the purpose of this app was to find through Guidebook something interesting that&#39;s going on, in which case you should be able to narrow down by location. But if the purpose is just to find a schedule for an event that you already know is happening then it is great as is. Lovely design.
Nice, room for improvement
by Randco on 2013/05/30 15:17
Must have: to see schedule conflicts noted as I select the item (or at least in &#34;My Schedule&#34;). When I select a 50 minute session at noon, there should be SOMEthing that tells me, &#34;Hey dummy, that cuts in to the 12:30 event you wanted.&#34; Also, prioritization of the events. If a session is running long, but the signing session is about to start, I want to see/hear/feel a notification. Nice to have: Maybe it&#39;s just the event I&#39;m going to, but allowing images in the description / body would be great.
Wrong location on map
by suzharle on 2017/10/22 19:39
As soon as I downloaded the app and opened it up as I was in transit to my conference, I saw a map which pinpointed where the hotel is. Sadly the pinpoint was not accurate and perhaps pointed to another hotel in the same chain. This caused me to visit the conference website to see which location the hotel was at to verify the pinpoint was not in the right location. Bingo, it was wrong indeed. Glad I did not get a taxi there. I hope the rest of the app is more accurate
Log-in issues and no support
by ggentry11 on 2016/02/05 20:56
I&#39;ve downloaded the iOS app and logged in using Facebook. But if I want to log in on the website there is not way to do that with Facebook and for the life of me I cannot find away to see my email address &amp; password for your guidebook account on my app. How can I use &amp; sync my guidebooks across platforms when I cannot log in? BIG Suggestion: SUPPORT! They have no email addresses, no FAQ and now support in app or on your website.

Nice, but one suggestion:
by Desdra4 on 2012/09/05 20:02
This is a neat little app and I&#39;m looking forward to using it at NDK but one ability I really wish it had is to be able to make your own task and set a time frame so it would show up under the &#34;my schedule&#34; area instead of having to juggle between &#34;my schedule&#34; and the &#34;things to do list&#34;. This would make it much more convenient for us staffers, attendees too probably.
Awesome app
by ladysunday on 2012/04/08 13:23
Used this at PAX East 2012 and it worked really well. I loved being able to see the schedule of the panels and what-not without having to dig through my bag for the full schedule. Plus, when times were changed or things got cancelled, I had the updated schedule on my phone. Really nice app!
Very helpful!
by Golden Child PR on 2014/06/26 23:48
Just found out about this app, so I&#39;ve only used it to help me plan my schedule for one event (Anime Expo 2014) but it had everything about the event on there, which was amazingly helpful and convenient! I instantly loved this app, can&#39;t recommend it enough for upcoming events you might attend.

This app looks pretty nice, but fails in too many places. I downloaded the guide for my workshop, but it constantly deletes it. I’ve had to download it 5 times now. When you are in class with poor WiFi and need to know what’s next, well you are out of luck. I’ve also got it into open loops where you click open and it does nothing. And you can map addresses. That’s just stupid. Also have you seen their pricing? Why would anyone use this?
A useful idea

There could be a couple of changes/additions to help look up schedules. If you could make it look up all schedules of a particular room, or to be able to see the old-style guidelines from previous years. Also, a filter for particular videos, panels, or discussion boards would be nice, instead of having it all bunched together in a timeslot. But, for now, it is a slightly useful app.

Indispensable

This was used by the organizers of Minecon2012 at Disney Paris. Loved that I could pull out my phone (with no connectivity) and see everything at a glance. No sorting through assorted paper itineraries and easy to make decisions with my son on which panels to attend with the flexibility to change plans on the fly.
Needs one more thing!
by Nanster Panster on 2014/03/06 21:02
I was so excited when the trade show I attend twice a year introduced this app. However there is one major flaw that forces me to use the paper show guide instead...It need the ability to organize booths by booth number! That way when walking a show floor, you can look down at your and see which booths you need to visit in that aisle! Please add this feature!
Worthless

Diocese of Olympia is using this app for their convention. The primary use for it would be for documents. They are all links to pdfs which don&#39;t rotate and so you have to zoom and scroll each line to read it. Since it has to link to the internet each time you access the doc, you need internet connection - at a venue that doesn&#39;t have enough bandwidth to accommodate the number of attendees. Just use paper! Also... A number of the links go to &#34;Page not Found.&#34;
Great app, recent update crash fix
by Sue-with-a-shoe on 2014/05/19 23:12
This is a great app, especially for keeping track of your chosen schedule at a large event. I&#39;ve had it for a few years now. Recent update was crashing at launch on iPhone 4s. Delete &amp; reinstall fixes it.
Nothing new here, ugly app
by AnnoyedLJD on 2015/02/28 19:05
If you&#39;re reading this you&#39;re likely considering using this to organize your next event. As an event attendee I can say this app doesn&#39;t do anything a printed itinerary doesn&#39;t do better. Static maps (Google does better), a static itinerary, and weak implementations with social media. It has a photo stream, but no one uses it. Where&#39;s the messaging? Where are quality maps? App just takes up space on your attendees devices and a line item in your budget sheet. You can do better.
Does what it says, easy, nice & clean app
by firesaint on 2012/04/12 04:33
Title pretty much says it. Very easy to navigate &amp; use, not a lot of bells &amp; whistles but everything you need. Plus, guidebot is cute (more guidebot!) Could see a lot of folks using this, makes trade shows easy to navigate. Many thanks!
Very good but needs two major tweaks
by Egerias on 2014/01/30 05:58
Really good app. However, (1) make &#34;My Schedule&#34; sync across all apps. Ridiculous to have to enter schedule 2x (iPad and iPad mini). (2) When you enter an event on your schedule on a multi-day event, app should take you back to the day you are on, not the 1st day of the event. A tad frustrating but overall really good app.
Great App
by Serry01 on 2011/06/08 03:58
Very useful for conventions. I don&#39;t need to rely on my map or program at all now and I don&#39;t forget to go to panels I wanted to visit. The only thing that I&#39;d recommend is a clear way to delete a guide. I downloaded the wrong one and now I can&#39;t get rid of it.
Easy to use, has everything
by l.hero on 2014/08/21 17:46
The session schedules are extremely convenient, since they link you to where the rooms are on an interactive map. Also other things are cool too.
Great App Love it!
by Sailor Star Rainbow on 2012/08/23 19:14
I used this app last year at a animecon. I go to the are going to use the app again this year. Can&#39;t wait for Mechacon 8 all ready. But like other people have said. The alarm&#39;s did go off at the wrong times once in a while.
Just what I've been looking for.
by Shoom'lah on 2012/11/13 06:57
There are so many crappy, proprietary convention apps out there that guidebook is a breath of fresh air- easy to use, functional, and BY GUM it works offline. Honestly, I wish every convention, conference or festival I went to used this.
Great but...
by suchabill on 2013/06/25 01:58
Love being able to create my own schedule for a week long summer symposium that has about 250 or more separate events. Problem is I created my schedule on my iPad but it doesn&#39;t sync to Guidebook on my iPhone? Really? Am I missing something? Hope this issue is alleviate ASAP.
Great app
by Kristine0921 on 2013/07/21 18:12
Clean design with beautiful interface and great user experience. Easy to make last minute changes and has great features. They just released interactive maps which is very helpful. Overall a really great app.
Great concept, by lacking
by Mayobarber on 2015/10/29 02:27
This is a GREAT concept to help me coordinate my schedules each day for the convention that I&#39;m going to. HOWEVER- it gives me the option to add photo ops to my schedule but not panels... Which means I can&#39;t create an actual full schedule at all... Only shows me what time my photo ops are. It&#39;s unfortunate because that makes the app pointless for me. If it worked I would give it 5 stars
Obvious features missing
by Tsaroux on 2019/03/16 17:50
Guidebook team. There are basic features that are missing or not easily accessible: 1. Search is confusing. Not clear whether I am searching within a current event or for an event from the global pool. 2. Calendar and scheduling is from 1800s (way before computers). I need to be able to: A) see all events in a room and/or in a building/venue, for a day, date, the duration of the main event etc. B) see all the times for an event—when it is offered more than once. C) see events by teacher/mc/leader, eg, show me what John is teaching. The above are basic pivot features that should be built in. 3. Provide ability for events to post links to additional materials including PDFs. 4. Event feedback and reviews
Clear out the old events already!
by Jessaleemcgee on 2018/08/19 15:34
Trying to find a current event on this app is a pain! They still list ones from 2013! Too many to slog through. No way to filter them. And the user can’t even delete their old events. Not user friendly. Better curation and user controls are needed to make this app what it is meant to be.
Could be good, but...
by ehsgurl on 2015/07/20 23:07
The app freezes when you go to the &#34;share guidebook&#34; option. And it doesn&#39;t just freeze the app, but my whole phone. Some guides will not load, and the form submission option is very confusing. I think the app has potential to be very good and work extremely well. It would be very nice to have these kinks worked out.
