Incorrect information? Or poorly organized?
Whenever you use the search function it will provide results such as a cabin but when you click on the result it gives you the park doesn’t actually have the cabin (or the feature you are searching for). Similarly, it will give you results that says the park has availability but when you click on it and go into booking it will say there is no availability. I like the idea of this app and having all the information in one place! But they need to work on the actual functioning of the app, the search function, and helping to narrow down to correct information and results.
Also, allowing to eliminate results that don’t allow dogs, or only allow dogs in certain areas, etc would be helpful!
Fix the map download function
Currently I get an error message whenever I try to download a park map. It says I need an Internet connection even when I’m on an internet connection. The trail maps download without a problem. This should be fixed as it saves paper and helps with park planning. Otherwise you have to go to the website to download a map. I like having the map available for use on the app because sometimes you don’t have cell signal in the park or on a hike. Otherwise this is a good app, just fix this bug and it will be great!
App Opens, Locks Up
The headline says it all. On launch, the app displays a 3x3 grid of Texas State Parks with a couple of buttons and a banner ad at the bottom. NOTHING works. I cannot activate the menu, map, or filters, and tapping the ad does nothing, neither dismissing it nor opening the ad URL.
This is a prime example of how government screws up EVERYTHING it touches. This may be the single worst iOS app I’ve ever encountered. To add insult to injury, the website isn’t much better, making a camping reservation online an extremely laborious process.
Is there an app template that will allow reservation-making entities like this the ability to easily create reliable, working apps that are customized to their organizations? If there is, they’d be well advised to migrate their app to it. Cuz, brudda, dis don’t work!
