Imagine being able to create an account, begin entering content, and previewing your app on your own device within minutes. That is the promise of the new Real App Preview unveiled by Grandstand at the 2016 IAFE Conference in Las Vegas.
No longer are you burdened by going through the Apple TestFlight program or Google Beta Android builds to preview your app days or weeks after you initially created. With Real App Preview you now have the ability to go from start to finish in just minutes or hours.
The preview works by downloading the Grandstand Events app in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store to your mobile device. Then, after creating an account on our web platform and loading in your initial content, you will be shown a code to enter into the home page of the Grandstand Event app. This will load your app in seconds and you will immediately see the fruits of your labor.
If you choose to go with one of our full-service packages you can still take advantage of Real App Preview by downloading the app and then entering the code that we provide to you to see your app within hours.
In late 2016 and early 2017, Grandstand will also be rolling out Grandstand Fairs, Grandstand Festivals, Grandstand Venues, Grandstand Conferences, and Grandstand Camps. Each of these apps will serve up our starter package apps to your end users. For example, if you are a fair and choose this package you can have your attendees download the Grandstand Fairs app and the app will automatically find the three fairs closest to them that have chosen to do apps with us. If those are not what they are looking for they can always search for a specific fair name.
These new features will bring our powerful functionality made famous at events like the Illinois State Fair and Minnesota State Fair and make it accessible to fairs and festivals of all shapes and sizes.
If you are at IAFE we are in booth 1102. Please stop by and let us show you this advanced new functionality. If you are not in Vegas, give us a call at 402-770-1654 to setup a demo.
