The D*C app updates mid August, correct?

As i recall, they sent out the update, but then kept updating it and you kept having to reload it right up to the day of.  I found it to be not too useful other than the daily dragon and programming changes being right there.  I always ended up carrying my marked-up hard copy program around with me.

Dragoncon's twitter keeps saying late August when anyone asks. At this point I know Star Wars Track has their preliminary schedule out, and Brit Track is getting ready to release theirs. Not sure about everyone else though...

I liked the app. Other then the updates, it worked fine, and I liked the ability to rate and give feedback on the panels i attended.

The updates suck, since it's constantly doing it.

But, overall, the app is really helpful.  Especially for keeping up with my friends, and seeing where they're potentially going to be.
Also, the panel reminders are really nice.

Sci-Fi/Fantasy Media has their prelim schedule out, but are still accepting panelists for said panels.  I don't know if that has updated to the app yet as this is their prelim and might still be considered tentative.

ROFL  If this thread keeps going and we had a a drink emoji to trigger the game then we wouldn't be stable enough to survive until the Con.  ROFL.

I actually liked the app, it was useful for me and contacting people was easier.

Yea, I love the app.   For keeping up with friend's schedules.  Also good for throwing new friends information in there, to stay in touch.

It just generally makes it easier to keep track of all the stuff you have scheduled for certain time slots.
