Needs to be more Accurate 2/5
App provides good information but needs to be more accurate with the GPS. Parade tracker vehicle is right in front of me but shows that it’s miles back. Recommend a timestamp so you know how update the information is vice “parade location updated.”
Almost missed my wife riding with Pandora because this app had them way behind where they actually were. Luckily I used 4WWL’s app and saw where they were really at which was nowhere near where this worthless app had them. After they passed I got back in the car and checked out of curiosity to see where it had them it still had them way back near causeway when they had already passed cleary.
Please add a tracker at the end!!! 3/5
By Ap junkie
It’s just as important to know where the end is as to know where the beginning is!!!
Schedule selection 4/5
By gEORGE tULLOCH
I love this APP. I was just wondering if we could chose a location like Uptown and only see the uptown parades?
Missing parades 2/5
The app doesn't include parades that follow others, like Elks-Orleans and Crescent City on Mardi Gras day. These parades have different routes from Rex, so it would be nice to at least have a map of the route even if you aren't going to track it. Think of the poor tourists who don't know these parades exist, and rely on this app to let them know what's going on.
Despite having a tracker at the front of all three uptown parades this afternoon, every parade was reporting their position from the first tracker car. Kinda defeats the purpose.
Total fail today 1/5
Had several parades with locations miles off their actual location. What a waste of time!
Love this app!!! 5/5
By NOLA Parades rock!
They cover everything, even Slidell and Houma!!! So easy to use!

Need a tracker at the end 3/5
I will continue to be annoyed by not having a tracker at the end of the parades downtown. The tracker is great, but if the parade broke down or the tracker has passed, then this whole thing is useless. Buy a few of this GPS Tiles and stick it on the back of the fire trucks instead of using another tracker car. Let’s complain to the competition to see who can provide this feature first 🙄
Essential Tool for visiting New Orleans during parade season 5/5
I love the Parade Tracker
Not current 1/5
After seeing MULTIPLE commercials advertising the parade tracker during the Pride Parade on Channel 6, I tried to utilize it, only to find out that the app hasn’t been updated. This seems to happen every time there are parades other than the traditional carnival parades. Never again. Thanks for nothing.
So helpful! Would love if they had the line-up route too. 4/5
This app is a godsend. Living two blocks off parade routes it's great to know when the parades are coming close. I wish it showed the end of the parade so I can know when it's safe to drive back home, but I realize that would mean a whole other parade tracker car to provide. What would also be great for us drivers is if the route showed the line-up route maybe in a different color so we know where we won't be able to get through.
For the people that say the parade schedule doesn't come up - you have to click 'yes' when it asks if you'd like to update the schedule. And it takes about one second to pop up. It's not asking if you'd like to update the whole app - it's just the schedule.
I get notifications for parades but when I click the app it ALWAYS says no internet connection available! I've deleted and reinstalled but still never works!
Horrible tracking 1/5
I could not get an accurate track on Mardi Gras Day for Argus. It is after 5 pm and it still shows the parade at Causeway. The parade ended already.
No Parades 1/5
By Python Eater
This app is useless this year! I’ve used this app in past Mardi Gras seasons and it listed all parades. This year, not one parade is listed. Useless!
Inaccurate information 2/5
I've noticed several inaccuracies this Mardi Gras season with this app. It shows different routes and times for parades than the WWL app, and invariably, the error is on WDSU's part.
No information 1/5
The app does have any information as of February 8, 2018
Future parade details 1/5
The app only lets the parade that are going on today. Trying to see what razor going on tomorrow or later this week is not possible
Bad install 4/5
The ads work great but every time I go into the application it tells me that there are no parades scheduled. I had to delete the app and reinstall. Once I did that, the app started to work correctly.
DOES NOT WORK!! 1/5
Don’t know if it has a compatibility issues with newer iPhones but he app does not work. If you want a working app, download WWL’s parade tracker app.
The schedule says there are no parades today despite the fact that there’s 5 parades uptown alone. Totally doesn’t work. Channel 4 app is better.
What happened?! 1/5
I’ve had this app seasonally since 2015, and it was always great fun. I reinstalled it for this Mardi Gras season, but the Schedule constantly reads “No Parades Tracked Today”. On days I know there are multiple parades! It’s really too bad.
Apps broken 1/5
Today February 3 2018. App is not working, not showing any parades today or any parades in schedule area...... Please Fix.....
Absolutely worthless app... 1/5
By Lady of the Square
Living in the square. Caught outside. App does not even load parade schedule for the day. My expectation to get an idea when the parade will be over? Too much to ask this app.
App does not work 1/5
Despite the latest update, the app displays no parade information. Useless.
Can’t see the schedule!? 1/5
Deleted the app. Reinstalled it. Updated it. Deleted it again. Reinstalled. Where’s the schedule??
Doesn’t Work Go with WWL app 1/5
By Parade man
Doesn’t work go with WWL app! The schedule has no parades listed. The app has a hard time keeping time!
PRade Tracker 1/5
I downloaded and says no parades today. My wife has an older version that works.
Filtering locations 5/5
Love the app. PLEASE allow users to filter by neighborhood. If I’m uptown, I don’t care about Slidell parades, and vice versa. Would also help to know where the end of the parade is.
Filter by location 3/5
This app would be so much better if there was a feature to hide alerts from unwanted locations or maybe just turn on alerts for selected locations
Didn’t work 1/5
Refreshed multiple times. Never updated
It's a beautiful app 4/5
By Dark knight 17289
App works great majority of the time only a few thinks could be improved upon. Such as the number of floats and ideally you could track the end of the parade however definitely not essential
App broken on the big day 1/5
Opened the app to check on status of the Rex parade. Just sits there with the pinwheel spinning. Useless. Switched to the WWL app. Try again next year WDSU. App deleted.
Great until Mardi Gras day 2/5
Great app to have to keep track of metro parade schedules and routes. I live at the end of a parade route and have a job that doesn't shut down it helps tremendously getting me around the area when not at a parade. Really disappointed that of all times for the app not to function properly is Mardi Gras day.
Shoddy at best 1/5
Slow as slow can be. Forcing us to run late to Rex's Krewe. I'll try another one.
Almost there... 4/5
Like another reviewer mentioned, the app desperately needs to track the end of the parade, too. Knowing when a parade has passed a certain area (or when the clean-up crew is moving through) is invaluable for driving-related purposes.
Also... where is Pete Fountain's Half-Fast Walking Club? They need to be tracked on Mardi Gras day.
Float numbers 3/5
Love the idea of this app but for the love of king cake, can you please add the number of floats to every parade? Please!
Living in the "box" 5/5
Love this app, great info and constantly updates so you know you're getting up-to-date info. Couple of suggestions to make the app even better, especially for those of us that live in the area known as the "box":
- when looking at the entire schedule, provide the ability to filter by location
- show where the END of a parade is located
Needs # of floats 4/5
Love the app; accurate tracking; very useful. My only suggestion is to add the number of floats to the parade information. Happy Mardi Gras!
By Sal the King
This app is amazing!!!! It's accurate and it tells you we're the route is
Parade app 5/5
Works great. Only app to also include non-Mardi Gras parades.
Needs Some Improvements 2/5
Please have someone tracking the end of a parade. Otherwise, no one knows if it's safe to go a certain route yet.
Never Loads ! 2/5
By Party Gras
I have attempted to use this app the last two weekends for parade routes, times and updates. The app has only loaded twice. I can not tell you if the the app has an effective outline because I have not had the luxury of putting it to use.
Needs some work. 3/5
While it's great to know where the beginning of parade is, it would also be SUPER useful to know where the end of it is. I feel I have this conversation at every single parade. This feature would make the app worthy of 5 stars.
I wrote this in 2015. Still a valid complaint. Come on, WDSU! Make this happen!
Always accurate 5/5
We find it always accurate. Easy to use. Love being able to see where the parades are in the route.
No Parades Tracked Today 1/5
What do you mean No Parades Tracked Today? This is Mardi Gras! Are you a tracker or not?
Wrong parade times 1/5
This app has given me the wrong time for at least two parades (Krewe Du Vieux and Chewbacchus were an hour off). I missed KDV because of this app.
Missing Parades 3/5
This App is missing Parades. This last Mardi Gras I wanted to track the 2 Elks trucks parades in Metairie but they were not on the App, only the parade before them was. The same was the case in New Orleans it was missing the parades that followed after Rex and Zulu and all that. the names of the parades that were missing are: Elks Jefferson, krewe of Jefferson, Elks Orleans, and krewe of crescent city. These 4 parades need to be added to the app next year. Also, today is the Irish and Italian parade but it is not on the app. This parade also needs to be added.
