Ratings and Reviews
I did not hesitate to purchase the app for $2.00 in App Store but after installation wished the app had less bugs. I Finally was able to create an account after going to the website but unable to create a new account and now login within the app and it crashes every time I try logging in. I have several new locations that I could add (and have already tried multiple times)to the database but still unable to do so because the app crashes every time I try logging in on any of my devices. There are a lot of great features about the app but the inability to login severely limits its possibilities. I tried contacting technical support after installation but still have not had any response from anybody. Fortunately I only have a $2 investment and hopefully someday it will be a useful tool. Originally based my purchase on the length of time the app has been available and the numerous updates assuming they would have such major bugs worked out. Unfortunately my assumptions were incorrect!
I have loved this app, BUT....
I'm not giving this 5 stars because of some tech glitches, as described by a reviewer on July 27. Same thing happens to me now -- I tried over and over to write a review on my phone, but every time I tried to either log in (wasn't sure about my login info) or create a new registration, it went back to my home screen. Attempts to contact the admin resulted in bounced emails. I finally was able to log in from my PC and on about the fifth try I posted my review. I hope they haven't abandoned this app.
App Crashes and lots of Wrong Restaurants
Just upgraded from my free version and although delighted to see dog friendly restaurants were added to the app, very disappointed overall.
App crashes. ALL THE TIME. When I tried to register at the provided DogGoes link, the app crashed. When I created an account online and went back the app to log in, it still crashed repeatedly.
On top of the frustration, it’s been extremely frustrating to sift through the restaurants showing up as dog friendly because many of them have gone out of business. When trying to update info or leave a review of the restaurant indicating that the restaurant is no longer in business, you guessed it... the app crashed.
What a hopeful but wasted $1.99. App has potential but should remain free u til they get the bugs worked out and information provided updated and current.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
