Wow did this app get unusable. It used to be the best app for showing NP Sites on a map. I guess the developers feel that they always must be working on something even when it means taking a perfectly good product and driving it in to the ground. I mean my God, all people wanted was a map of national parks. The addition of national forests and state parks was cool and useful. But all of a sudden it's become nonsense. Like verbal diarrhea in app form. (Edit, ok the map is back. This is awkward)

Thank you for your feedback. Yes, the map simply moved to the icon at the top of the home screen. We are continuing to expand the content to include all public lands but for those users are only wish to see national park-related content, we'll be adding more filtering options in the future.

This app has so much potential! But there are a few things that drive me crazy! First, it is SUPER buggy. It sometimes takes 2 or 3 tries to record I am at a park. Second on my profile page, under # of parks, it ALWAYS says 1! Ugh! If # of check-ins can be accurate why not that?? Finally, PLEASE separate the places i have visited by category! I want the number of national parks separately reported from monuments, historical parks etc.

Sorry for this inconvenience. We have fixed the issue. Please update to the latest version on the Play Store. We are also working on the profile section so that you can view just national parks vs. monuments, etc. More updates coming soon!

Clicking on an activity in the Texas state park listings links one to the national park system. There is a map of state parks for Georgia but not AZ or Tx or .... . These are just two issues I found. Not real helpful if one wants to see what is nearby your location. If you know where you want to go you don't need this app. If you're looking for where you might go this app will be frustrating.

In the latest release (6.0.8), 1) the state parks browse bug has been fixed, 2) the home screen has been changed to display all nearby parks, and 3) the map icon has been moved back to the home screen (top right corner) so that you can easily find your location and surrounding parks. Please don't hesitate to email with questions
