    AirVenture 2018 App

    Is it too early to start asking about it? Or too late? I assume Hal's been working on it in the background all along, but I'd like to add my vote on an issue I've seen people have had for several years, synching an itinerary built on the web site to the app. It is a lot easier to set it up on a computer than on a phone, (especially if you wear bifocals as thick as mine.)

    Also, an suggestion I've made several times over the years since the schedule was first put on the net, is marking the forums that were repeated at another time. Back in the days before internet when all you got was the printed booklet, the forums that were given more than once had an asterick next to the listing, so if you were trying to decide between two at the same time, you could attend the one that wasn't marked. but the asterick has never been transferred to the computer. At the very least, list the multiple times in the detailed description. As it has been, each instance of a repeated forum links to its own individual description, and only has the one time in it.

    Thanks for working on it, Hal.

    Hi Dave -

    Thanks for the kind words. I actually haven't been working on the app for the past few years, since I moved to my current role in Publications. I know that work is well under way for this year's version, but don't know much about the feature set. I'll be sure to pass your feedback along!

    Best -

    Hal,

    Thanks for the reply. I thought I had read that it was you that had built the new app last year after Sporty's dropped it. Must be my memory playing tricks on me again. Anyway, thanks for passing it on to whoever is in charge.

    It's now available in the Play and App (isn't it sad that the world doesn't have time to say lication any more?) Stores.
    I haven't looked it it much yet since there seems to not have all the data loaded yet.
    I did see the T&C's require you to be at least 18 years old. There must be some adult material in there that I haven't found yet.

    Of course it is not fully populated yet. Nonetheless, it looks like a significant improvement over last year's version. I am looking forward to using it.

    Did anyone here actually read the user agreement? I did. It is actually written in plain English -- not lawyer-ese. (Except for the part near then end in all caps. That part is pure lawyer speak.) It was a delightful surprise.
