Usually I post photos of characters, events and such. Today I thought I’d share some feedback we are receiving on our new CharacterLocator.com mobile site testing. The above photo was from my friend Susan who has tested the response times so much that she’s worn a divot into her finger :0 Thank her when you thank the Phoenicians!
This app will be FAR more than just character meets, we are offering park hours, character meets (schedule, tips, I Met tracker, Share), show schedules, rides (still completing our wait time/fastpass script), dining menus, special event info, character dining and more to come.
We’re working through each issue as it’s presented and keeping a running file on the testing site for our testers to know that their issues are being addressed. We still have a number of things to resolve, but we’re getting much closer each day.
Here’s some actual comments from Character Locator Beta Testers:
“Parks and characters load immediately. I really like the Tips section. Love the Dining section with prices.”
“It is wonderful. Everything on the site was loading within 1-3 seconds on my iPhone 4S. Mostly within a second.”
“Site looks great. Load times are fast, when I open an area that had not been previously viewed I would say it loads within a second. Then when I load something that has been previously viewed it opens it almost instantly. Love the tips section specific to each character!”
“Just did the initial loads and reloads, 3 seconds on the first load and then 1-2 on the second (wow that’s fast!)”
“Tested again all pages loading within seconds, working great!”
“Hey Kenny!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE the app!!! Super fast load time. 2-3 seconds max!!!! Great job!!!”
“I tested the site this afternoon on my phone, and it worked great! Everything loaded instantly for me. When I click on hours for each park, it loaded a bit slower, like maybe 3-4 seconds. This app will be great for our trip! ”
“Used 3G with iPhone 4S at AK today. Main AK page loaded in about a second, same on reload. Other pages under AK including character pages were about 3-5 seconds. ”
“It’s great!!!! Now I wish I was waking up in FL with ears Very user friendly & not slow on my phone.”
“Under a second for most pages! I have been testing off and on all day on wifi and most pages are up in less then 2 seconds.”
“This is amazing. Loving this!! This seems to be all the info I look for in a quick easy to use app.”
Are you as excited as me to see Character Locator PRO coming to other mobile platforms? Get to help so many more people enjoy the parks like I do!
