Great interface, Great idea!

Playground Buddy is simple to use and the interface contains helpful information. There's a place for photos and comments about each playground, including check boxes that note if the playground has a play structure, sandbox, slide, swings, restrooms, etc. As the parent of a toddler, I particularly like that there's a place to note if a playground has special toddler swings.

I can see how this app will be invaluable when traveling with kids.

If your area is blank, it just means that no one has started entering playground there yet. The app is free, so it would be great to have more contributions!

Love the app

This is a great app. I’m always updating it for any parks in my area I visit and tell others about it too. I hope to get enough people in my area to get more parks up to date. I have one request: can you add a section about whether the playground is shaded? That is one of the biggest things I look for when searching playgrounds. Keep up the good work!

Road Trip

We are going on a long road trip and I needed something to help me find playgrounds on the fly for my little boys to let off some energy. I tested it in our neighborhood and this app immediately found at least two dozen parks to choose from. I like that users may add new locations and I added two parks which we like, but weren't in the app. This will be a great help on the trip.
