    Airventure App doesn't match Website

    I have had this problem in the past and it looks like it is going to continue again. The schedule on the airventure app is outdated and doesn't match the schedules on the airventure website. A perfect example of this is the movie lineup for the fly-in theather. The website lists skyfall on tuesday and Terminal on wednesday. If you go to the app it lists tuesday as TBA and skyfall as wednesday. I haven't checked yet but I am guessing that any updates to the forums and workshops haven't make it to the app either.

    What's the point of having an app to use while at the show if it doesn't have the latest and greatest information? I missed a number of forums last year because I was counting on the times listed in the app as being right when it wasnt. Very dissapointing.

    Hi Keith -

    Sporty's is handing off an updated version of the app to Apple today that addresses those issues. Unfortunately, it takes a few days for Apple to approve a new app, so keep an eye on iTunes for the update. Some data (the internal schedules, as opposed to the "splash screen" where you're likely seeing the movie lineup, for instance) can be updated dynamically on IOS devices without submitting the app again, assuming you have an Internet connection. We'll do our best to communicate any last-minute changes to Sporty's so that they can manage the updates, but with the sheer number of events we have and the number of people involved, the information is always going to be subject to change.

    Hal,
    Where can we report forums/presentations missing in the app?
    Im not seeing Cessna Pilots Association presentations on Monday (Cessna SIDs) or Thursday (Cessna Rigging) in the app.
    Which is more up to date, the app or the website?

    Go ahead and post them here, but there's no reason to do that until after the update has been released later this week.

    The website will always be the most up-to-date.

    It's 2 days out until the show starts. When is the update to the app going to be released? I'm still looking at a screwed up movie lineup and almost no listings for what is going on nightly in Theater in the Woods.

    Sporty's released the update yesterday. It'll be in the various app stores as soon as Apple, Google, and Amazon have approved it respectively. I expect that to happen any time now for Google and Amazon, and within a day or so for Apple, but that's just my best guess.

    Hal, I realize the app is from Sporty's and not EAA, and it's too late for this year, but maybe you could pass the word on to Sporty's for next year. I see they have the app for IOS, Android and Amazon Kindle, but how about the Barnes and Noble Nook? It is Android based, but it is locked to only run Nook apps. (I understand the newly released Nook HD will run Google Play, but I still have last year's Nook color.)
    Thanks,
    Dave

    I don't know an ap from a sap , but I have been attending many forums over the last 3 decades at EAA, Oshkosh, and have given a few.
    When you buy your ticket or pass, they give a small paper booklet that lists all the forums, day, time, subject, location. The is also a list in each days free newspaper that is widely available around the grounds and at many hotels/motels.

    And if you can find an old guy like me, one who doesn't have a cell phone glued to his ear, I will even be glad to decipher, (as in read) that old fashioned thing made of paper with newsprint on it.
    I bet most folks there would also aid you.
    By the way, I know a guy who writes those aps for Apple, a real savvy computer type, but knows nothing about airplanes.
