Plan your fair visit using your smartphone!
Want to know where to find the nearest ear of sweet corn? Looking for the closest ATM? Can’t remember where you parked your car? The answers to all these questions, and many more, can be found on the updated, free Indiana State Fair mobile app. The popular Indiana State Fair mobile application has been updated and now includes a new mapping feature providing a better user experience. The new app map allows fairgoers to see exactly where they are in relation to the fairgrounds by using the GPS location in their phones. This feature allows users to see what fair food booths and attractions are nearest to them (as long as their GPS is turned on).
Users can use this convenient map feature to locate items in six different categories:
- Exhibits & Attractions
- Food Vendors
- Parking areas
- Stroller/Wheelchair Rentals
- First Aid
In addition, any of these categories can be turned on and off. This means fairgoers can view only the Food Vendors and Parking areas if that’s all they’re interested in.
The app also provides listings of every fair event for each of the 17 days of the fair. There are special listing of all the Shane Co. Coliseum Concert Series shows, the Free Stage concerts, general information on hours, admission and special discounts, and a sharing feature that allows users to post comments and photos to their Facebook friends and Twitter followers. You can even purchase discount admission tickets through July 31 on the app with just a few simple clicks.
This app is available for both iOS and Android devices. Personally, I love the new map and look forward to using it during the fair this year. Let us know what you think!
