Ratings and Reviews
Style over substance
This app is a classic example of a design agency being too in love with their own ideas and not thinking about how people would actually use it. The main “menu” is a stylized scene that you have to scroll through to find what you want — looks nice at first but becomes frustrating after about 2 minutes.
The app’s content is mostly glorified in-app browsers; there’s nothing here you couldn’t find quicker with Google and the DNR’s website. And there’s stupid UI decisions, like if you go in through the Map main menu item, you can’t get to maps of the individual parks — for that, you have to go through the “Visiting” menu item. And the little popover tutorials about how to use the app won’t go away until you tap on all the things they’re pointing at, like I’m an idiot and I don’t know what a close button does.
Bad user experience, lackluster content...deleted it.
I wasn’t sure what to expect but this app is worth the download if you plan to travel to any of Indiana’s DNR owned parks. Very attractive interface and art. Very functional.
Works for me
The app works for me. It’s free. I like that this app has links to the campground and trail maps. I can download them and keep them on my iPhone.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
