Could be so much better
Great idea to have an app for Balboa Park but it needs major improvements! 1) hard to read the text for specific attractions. 2) needs a section listing conveniences, such as restrooms, diaper changing stations, ATMs, handicap access info, tram stops, gift shops, tour sign ups, etc. I did find some restrooms listed in the "attractions" section (which is a weird place for them) but the corresponding map was not detailed enough to really be helpful. 3) needs a section listing all the free activities, such as organ concerts, free Tuesday's, etc. I hope you make some improvements!!
Just went to balboa park today and used this app to plan the visit. I got a lot more out of the visit, with the museum and restaurant guide. A helpful feature is the map for each attraction, which makes getting around the large park much easier. I would have liked to see admission prices in the app though.
Good app but needs more
It isn't a bad idea to send someone to your website but, to do it for everything makes the app useless. I suggest having the prices for museums listed in the tabs as well as times. Yes, most will be redundant, however it
Ales it easier to navigate the park and your vacation plans. The only real "to the website" tab you need is the "buy tickets here" tab.
