When will the app be updated?

Hello! First time DragonCon-goer here!

I was wondering when the official DragonCon app will be updated for 2018. Anyone that used it last year happen to remember about how long before the Con it was updated?

Its usually a few days before con - it changes so much after its released they tend to wait as long as possible to release it.

I might be remembering wrong but it seemed like the app didn't go up until almost the week of? Maybe the week before?

Either way it'll be updated daily so make sure you have the latest version because stuff changes. It's chaotic but not nearly as much as people make it out to be.

Thanks for your replies. I messaged the official DragonCon Facebook page and got this response:

"We'll roll out smaller updates over the next few weeks. The schedule will get pushed out about 10 days before the event."

I would start checking the App around the 20th of August.
Sometimes earlier they start updating things.
I once thought I was an immortal Goa'uld, but as it turned out I'm just a confused mortal.
