What's New in Version 1.2
Minor update to fix a startup freeze that randomly affected some iOS devices.
Well Done TP&W!
Beautiful and intuitive app for exploring Texas State parks. Includes filters for finding just the right park for whatever your needs. Maps, fees and pretty much anything you might want to know about a park is there. Not sure what those other reviewers are complaining about as it looks like all the parks are listed and you can make reservations as well.
Put it back like the old site was
While there are pretty pictures, and a way to search things like swimming or cabins, etc, you can no longer search by region. The new map just shows stars where the parks are but you have to drill all the way into the map to see the park name. The old internet site provided a way to actually see the map you get at the park gate, which I found very useful. It's still there if you hang in there to find it.
Who searches for parks alphabetically? The map is useless.
Needs a Lot of Work
Would be nice if I could click on the little icons to find out what the amenities are, and view photos of campsites and cabins. I'm deleting; much easier just to google the park and get info. Needs lots of work.
Reinstalled, but it still needs much work. Cannot access swimming at parks where I know it is allowed. Will delete again. Hopefully sometime it will improve. For now, I'll just check out online.
