I love being able to document my trips from childhood and having a digital copy of my NP book. It's a great trip-planning tool and it's a fantastic resource for mapping out national parks and nature preserves. That said, I wish the developers would allow us to type in the dates of our trip instead of having to back-click by the month to 1992. In addition, there can be multiple sites within a park, so I feel like it should allow multiple check-ins per park so you get credit for each site.

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!

This is a pretty good replacement to the original Passport to National Parks app but I wish there was an easier way to enter a date. It would be great if you could just type in a date instead of having to hit the back button in the calendar. I like to have a complete list of the parks and dates visited in my phone for reference and some of my dates are from the 60's.
