Iowa State Fair Food Finder app reviews

  • Even will all the negativity I like it. 5/5

    By bhreann
    I just downloaded the app even though I was skeptical from all of the bad reviews. Honestly, I like it. It gets the job done by telling me where the items are at the fair. People are complaining about not having nutritional info, but honestly the food isn’t made the same every time, so that won’t be 100% accurate. Plus, when I go to the fair I expect to eat a lot of calories anyway so that didn’t matter to me too much. Also, yes you can’t search what you want, but for someone who has never gone to the fair they won’t know what to search for. Everything is listed in alphabetical order, so just scroll through to what you are looking for. It isn’t that difficult. Quite accurate from what I saw and I think it deserves 5 stars!!
  • Needs Food Descriptions 2/5

    Needs descriptions of each food item.
  • Poor excuse for an app 1/5

    By jhenry61
    App would not work at all during the fair Saturday. App would freeze, stop, not download or ANYTHING! Before I got to the fair it worked great and I made my list and recorded the famous food and vendors I wanted to visit. Got to the fair and right off the bat it would not work. Because of it there were a couple places I could find. Had to go back to the old standard way and do it the hard way. Very poor performance. Otherwise I phone xs worked good.
  • Great app 4/5

    By Lizzy5404
    You can’t search for exactly what you want but I would say it’s 80% accurate
  • Come back. I need you! 2/5

    By Krbinks
    This is, by far, the best fair app. I love the map especially. Please update the app for 2019 and forever. I miss you!!❤️💚💜
  • Disappointed 2/5

    By Juliearo
    Where did the nutritional information go?
  • Waste of time - Don’t download 1/5

    By houseofwarwick
    It’s as bad as the other reviewers say: no food descriptions and the map loads but with an error message every time If I was the developer who signed their name to this as “done” I’d be embarrassed.
  • Loved 2018, where’s 2019? 4/5

    By Kaylee1992
    Will this be updated for ISF 2019?!
  • Bring back last years 1/5

    By Jbarton4314
    No nutritional info. This year I actually care about that. Also whenever I pick a food, the location pops up and so does a message saying that Google maps can’t display correctly and I must click OK. I would rather have out of date info than none at all. Congrats. Now no info at all! Google map thing is fix. Bad news now the only thing that comes up are the adds. What a piece of crap!! Exactly what I would expect from the Register who asks for extra money to deliver more ads on holidays. I’m a fair information volunteer. I rely on this information and tell the people that ask about food to download your app. I start tomorrow and I will tell them definitely do not download. Sad.
  • Stopped working 1/5

    By Omgagain1
    Worked at first then quit. Lost the things I saved to favorites.
  • Useless 1/5

    By cctjvvfjbcdfjkbdgjnn
    No food or vendors display after downloading
  • Not working in 2018 1/5

    By Mema7153
    Worked fine last year. Not working in iPhone this year.
  • No nutritional information 2/5

    By Ruralrn
    Even though I will eat the food anyway, nutritional information would be nice to have.
  • Bad 1/5

    By Slgelder
    Not updated for 2018. No gluten free corn dogs at Campbell’s.
  • Nearly worthless 1/5

    By b_champ_1
    If you just need to find the physical location of something I suppose this works. But it would be much more useful if it gave a description of the item, nutritional information, and maybe a photo.
  • Missing Nutrition Info 1/5

    By healthyeatshealthymom
    In years past it had nutrition info available. This year it’s gone. Pretty disappointing.
  • Nutrition/healthy food info gone 3/5

    By AlisonCreview
    This app was great in 2017 for finding some healthy food choices and seeing nutritional info, but both things are gone for 2018. There is also no description of the menu items, it’s not searchable, and it’s not a comprehensive listing. It is nice to be able to find food locations, but everything this app does in 2018 (except the “on a stick” listing) is something that the general Iowa State Fair app includes—and that app also has search functionality.
  • 2018 version 3/5

    By Rondaroodle
    *UPDATE Now it works but is missing nutrition info. When I go to the Fair I eat whatever I want but I still want to know the facts. Still needs a search feature.
  • Nutritional Facts? 1/5

    By Gcoz02
    They seem to have disappeared. Please add them back.
  • No way to search!! 1/5

    By skdoak
    Can’t search for any vegetarian or vegan food options!
  • Won’t open on iPhone 10 1/5

    By lrtruck
    I’ve enjoyed using this app in past years especially for the detailed schedule of events. It won’t open on my iPhone X. I tried reinstalling it but that didn’t help.
  • Liked it 5/5

    By Sassy Mathy
    Good app, love having the nutritional info.
  • Ok but not accurate 2/5

    By dsmwelsh
    Not accurate with coconut mountain on a stick bcz its not there anymore. Booooh! Ive politely commented to them that they need to bring it back but they havent had it for years so idk why its listed. Replacement flavor not nearly as good according to many. Also choc cov bacon maple nougat is NOT at this location. Sad. Nutritional info is cute but anyone looking to b healthy at the fair shouldn't be attending.
  • Nothing There 1/5

    By MtBikeTom
    Redownloaded the app since the fair date schedule was still showing last years info. Now since the download, nothing shows up. No foods, no vendors, no schedule. What's up with that?!
  • Needs to update 4/5

    By Bresar
    The app works great. Very handy to have. The events are not current for the fair this year(2018). The grandstand performers and free stages are not correct.
  • Locations good, but not food offerings 2/5

    By nickname2727
    Locations were accurate when it came time to find the booth I wanted, but two different times today I traveled across the fairgrounds for a listed food that the vendor told me they have never sold. Accuracy of vendor food offerings was very disappointing.
  • Awesome, with room for improvement 4/5

    By BigMikeIA
    This makes it easy to see what all the options are for fair food, and where they're located. It would be even better, though, if it used GPS to show your own location, and if you could make a list of or tag items for your "to do list."
  • Nutrition info 5/5

    By Aunrae
    As a mother of a T1D child I am beyond ecstatic to see the nutritional info is on this app. It makes my daughters life so much easier! She can eat the fair food she loves and helps take the guess work out for us. Turns a potentially challenging situation into a win for everyone. Thank you so much!!!!!!
  • Good for food, not for BR/ATM 3/5

    By Nev8r
    Handy to know where the food is, but would have been helpful to also know where ATMs and bathrooms are as well
  • Waste of time 1/5

    By CLD47
    Hopelessly outdated
  • Very Good App 4/5

    By Stealthblu
    Much easier to find good fair food & activities. Wish the 'save event to calendar' option worked.
  • Food part is good - schedule is off 4/5

    By Cyclone Steven
    The food part is good but the same bug as last year still exists in the schedule. Sometimes it gets off a day. Last year deleting the app and reinstalling would fix it, but didn't do so today.
  • Missing some info 3/5

    By KornDogLover
    First, the best food at the Fair, Crab Fritters, aren't included in this database. Second, some of the info, nutritional or otherwise, is too general. For instance, it only lists the 4oz hamburger/cheeseburger for Cattlemen's Beef Quarters. They have more than one size, plus the nutritional info would certainly be different for the cheeseburger than the hamburger! Good idea but they need to make it comprehensive, certainly by the 2nd or 3rd day of the Fair!
  • Helpful but missing some food 4/5

    By Mellie08
    Great app overall, but missing the popular pickle dawgs!!
  • Calendar Error 2/5

    By ConfusedFairGoer
    Cool App! But every one of your events shows up on the wrong day. Look at the detail for each event, not the day they are listed under :( need a quick updated please!
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Perfectly great game
    This is a great app and really helpful
  • Event dates are wrong 2/5

    By AudiSport
    They are all a day ahead
  • Keeps crashing on iPad - won't even open 1/5

    By Davidzjackson
    I saw the update and was excited to see what's new. Unfortunately, the app will not open. Major crash problems - iPad and iPhone
  • Crashes 1/5

    By Franky mcfrank
    The app crashes before it loads since the update.
  • Crashes upon trying to launch 1/5

    By New iPhone Fan
    After most recent update the app no longer will launch. It crashes a few seconds after you try to launch it. I've rebooted but still same problem. Fair is about to start. Bad time to cripple this app. Fix it before Thursday, please.
  • Fabulous! Made our Fair experience! 5/5

    By Staylor
    This app is very user-friendly - sends events right to your calendar, provides nutrition (and activity) information, great zoomable map of the grounds. We used it all the time - very helpful in planning our day/meals and getting us around. I wish I had one for everyday life!
  • Horrible 1/5

    By wog67
    It is horrible.
  • Love This! 4/5

    By Sebyrnes16
    A must have for every IOWAN!!!
  • Disappointed 1/5

    By ....,...,...,
    Great app aside from the fact that the dates are all one day off. We planned our day with the kids at the fair with the app only to find out all the dates were wrong. :(
  • Frequently goes blank 1/5

    By TJS5499
    The idea of the app is good, but it frequently will just go blank...no data, just the shell of the app. Im not the only one this is happening to...I've talked to others with same problem. So, fix it for next year. Thanks for working on an app.
  • Pretty good 3/5

    By moriko0618
    Needs a search bar and a "you are here" dot would be extremely helpful And one time all the data erased and had to reinstall But otherwise good
  • Needs a fix 3/5

    By David1952
    Fun app and calendar helpful. After 2-3 uses shuts down. When I reopen all data is missing. Must reinstall.
  • Femcom 1/5

    By Femcom
    Could be a great app, but itI quits, the screen goes blank, and the events are a day off :(
  • Really Handy 5/5

    By Fried on a Stick
    The Register is an awful paper, but they did a GREAT job on this app! Complete guide for food and events. Awesome.
