    Default Best Settings for iPhone at Coachella?

    So what are some of the best settings to set my iPhone for at Coachella? This is my first year with one and I am concerned about the battery dying early on. What should I turn off/on?

    Depends on whether or not you want to be able to use the internet. If you just want just phone and text: wifi off, 3g off, cellular data off, brightness all the way down. If you use apps, close them out when you're done with them (double tap home button, close all open apps). Turn it off at night when you're sleeping. That should give you some more mileage w/ your battery.

    Turn off location services and stock ticker.

    Turn 3g off. I've always found my texts have a way better chance of going thru if 3g is off for the entire fest.

    -You can turn off cellular data completely, and only turn it on when you feel like using it. Keep 3G off all the time.
    -In mail, change your fetch settings to manual, and push to off.
    -Location services off, brightness at the lowest, Wi-Fi off.
    -At night, don't turn it off, instead just turn on Airplane mode. Turning it on and off uses more power than just leaving it on Airplane mode.
    -Push notifications turned off as well.

    Or you could just get a Mophie. It's an iPhone case which holds a day's worth of charge, and can be turned on or off. I used one at SXSW, which is a much more iPhone dense area than the polo grounds and it worked awesome, and I was there for 5 days (I went to the tech festival prior as well).

    And here I was waiting for last year's app to update...

    I like the changes so far and the "Pull to Device" sync worked perfectly for me. Thanks.

    I'm hoping that's not the final version of the venue map. The art installation locations are a huge help.

    I was waiting for the old one to update too. PF, maybe put something on the home page about that.

    Love SebastiAn's icon

    Is there a way to set an alarm for all the acts that I choose with one click instead of having to go through each one? A "Set for All" option perhaps?

    Make the date that appears in "Favorites" more noticeable. White on White is kinda hard to read. Maybe make each day it's own page in favorites. After a band plays, it should automatically delete from the favorites list maybe.

    Is there a way to log in? That way you can see where others are and such.

    I have this for two iPhones, it's 9900mAh so it can fully charge a 4 or 4s about five to six times, which is enough for the weekend.

    Best iPhone setting is to keep it in your pocket during sets. I wish we could just delegate one person (I am thinking magmazing, that dude is pretty cool) to film every Coachella set for bootleg purposes, and people can stop fucking up everyone else's view and actually enjoy themselves.

    Exactly. Last year we got some group / personal shots early on day 1 and after that kept the camera in the locker the rest of the fest. Back at home...a lot of left click save images of some incredible shots of all the sets we were at.

    Would love a way to bookmark a camping/parking spot on the map. Having access to the forums for info via the app would also be nice to have, but not nearly as critical. Digging the app though!
