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.

Just a few minor tweaks away from perfect
So far I've used this app to plan out my Comic-Con panel sessions, and therefore my day at the convention, without flaw. Aside from the changes suggested below, I would really prefer to have an ability to search for by locations (I.e. what sessions are in Ballroom 20 and Hall H) so I know how early to get in line. (If there are several very popular sessions in a row, I'll need to get there several hours in advance, not several minutes). This can be done manually, by checking the time slots, but it would be nice to have the locations searchable as well, I think. Another note about locations, if there was a way for the session to bring up the map and mark that event's room, that would be another neat feature. (or I suppose I could ask an official there, so it's no biggy.) One last thing is I notice that many session titles are cut off, even when looking at the session's details. That would seem to be harmful for the panelists, if people can't quickly grasp what the session is about due to an incomplete title. But in all honesty, I'm nitpicking. This app does exactly what I want it to do already. Keep tweaking it tho; it's almost perfect! :)

Summary results
It would be nice to be able to get a summary of favorites. The way it works now you need to scroll through the whole list to find your favorites events or exhibitors. Searching for needles in a haystack.
