WHAT DO YOU WANT? ACCURATE INFORMATION vs. USER-PROVIDED CONTENT

Have you ever relied on a site's user-provided content, and then found it incomplete, contradictory, or just plain wrong? You know the ones ... the site or the app doesn't do their own research, and instead relies on random people on the Internet choosing to research and then post information for the site. That approach is particularly bad when detailed, factual information is required for places such as dog parks. Will the site or the app mention that a special city permit is required for all dogs and the park is closed on Wednesday mornings for maintenance? Do you want to visit a dog park and incur unexpected user-fees? Worse yet, do you want to drive to a dog park and find it closed? How about the park with leash laws that a reviewer neglects to mention? And when it comes to leash laws, size does matter. Many parks allow a maximum of 6 ft., others allow 8 ft. leashes; some parks do not allow retractable or training leashes. Do you really want to rely on user-provided opinions and content for bad information that may cost you a fine?

Apptika's Dog Parks App is an AUTHORITATIVE guide to dog-friendly parks, beaches and trails throughout New York City. The information in this dog park app comes from municipal, county, state and federal agencies. If there is ever any question about what is going on at a particular park, beach or trail, we provide the government Web site and telephone contact information.

5/5 stars

Great tool for locating dog parks!

:
This app is very helpful because it contains all of the park details, hours and amenities from the official government agencies that are running the parks. This is especially handy when there are limited off-leash hours such as at Dyker Beach Park and Fort Greene Park.

0/5 stars

Content needs some work

:
The app is simple enough to use (although the functionality is a bit silo'd). The real issue is the content is not correct. I understand that gathering and maintaining information on dog parks is a difficult task, but when I check the 4 dog parks that I go to regularly in NYC one is missing, and two of them have inaccurate information. When it is hot out my dog needs water and this app tells me the Dyker Heights park has water fountains for dogs. It doesn't even have fountains for humans. This makes me not trust any of the information in the app, which renders it useless.

Currently the description for the app asks 'WHAT DO YOU WANT? ACCURATE INFORMATION vs. USER-PROVIDED CONTENT' Actually, what I want is both. If this app let users comment on the dog parks, it would be more valuable and the content from the 'AUTHORITATIVE SOURCES' that the developer uses could be corrected when it needs to be.

0/5 stars

Worst app I've bought

:
A paid app with in-app advertising? Unacceptable.
Maps app often dosnt populate at all, and more importantly is missing the two of the 3 closest dog runs. They're all city run so should come from the same data source. Waste of a dollar.
