Was this tested?!?
This app appears to just be the website ... complete with a lack of usability. Trying to lookup trash/recycling pickup in either the app or website on iOS (iPhone) using Safari leads only to frustration. First no obvious way of finding this info. This is found by going to “Events and News” then “Solid Waste” then “Waste Collection” and then finally “Find My Pickup Day” at the bottom. “Events and News” ?!?! How does that make sense? And why so many “clicks” to find what should be a simple query?
Even once you make it that far it will not work. It takes you to the “GIS” disclaimer followed by a tiny form (not very touch friendly) to enter your address. This brings up another windows with extremely tiny scroll bars all over the place with the default selection for services set to “Government”. The drop down where you can change this to the original query (trash pickup schedule) does not actually work in the app or through the Safari (the default browser on iOS/iPhone/iPad).
Why even have this app. THE ABSOLUTE WORST. One simple task, trying to find recycling pick up days was met with frustration and just deleting the app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
