Updated just barely in time
Whew - got the update the day before the con, and it worked great - thanks! The new shuttle stop map was very helpful, though listing which color bus went to each of the stops would have been even more helpful (or including the shuttle map PDF from the con, or something). I love the favorites feature - really easy to use when selecting intended programming as well as when looking over my "want list". Nice to have features for next time: - ability to add alarm when i favorite something - when visiting Programs and the current day is one of the program days, start on that day (not always on Thursday) - include Wednesday night programming - add ability for user to add their own, custom program slots (e.g. I wanted to see anime XYZ or movie ABC at time X, or i have to go pick up masquerade tickets at 2pm). - link to twitter feeds for SDCC hashtags (either look only for SDCC, or allow user to enter applicable hashtags) - once i've attended a favorite, or its time has passed, allow me to "archive it" or something, so that my favorites list always shows the next, upcoming things I want. - add shuttle timing info, even in just static form like they had on the website - would be nice to be able to see programming organized by location (then by time), so I can see what's up next in this current room i'm in Bug fixes: - when internet is unavailable (happened a lot at the show since it was so overloaded), app got unhappy and popped up error dialog saying "could not connect to internet" every time I tried to view a program listing. I assume this was for the social-media-linking, but it shouldn't pop up at me if internet isn't up; just skip the social stuff and move on.

Very handy!
I didn't even bother looking at this app at first after the update because I thought it was the same old thing as before. It wasn't until my second day at the Con that I opened it up because I saw others in line using the app. Wow! This was very handy and helped my husband and I locate "plan B" options quickly if lines were too long for certain sessions without having to drag out the paper program. It even worked without Wi-Fi (program and map info, not sharing capabilities, obviously) so it could be used on my iPod Touch while waiting in line for Hall H. The only things I would recommend changing is not cutting-off longer titles and be able to email the entire list of favorites so that it could be printed or shared.

Great Comic Con Companion
I checked this app more than the paper guide during Comic Con to browse the sessions, and on a few occasions to check the map and find locations of individual exhibitors (I had a tough time finding The Stunt People to buy their Death Grip movie). It's rally simple to use but could be a bit more polished, e.g. if I scroll all the way down to the end of the Thursday sessions, tab to another day, then tab back, I have to scroll all the way down again. And it would be great if all the con info in the paper guide was in the app. Next year!

App "works"
With all the information about exhibits, panels and their locations available to Comic Con, and they put none of it in the App. So if all you need are names of exhibits, then this app is for you.
