NOTE: This demo will show any weakness in the GPU or driver on the device, so some shaders may crash your device, appear off-center or incorrectly positioned. This is normal operation, at least for some hardware.
Drawing on the extensive database of pubs from http://doggiepubs.org.uk, allows you to quickly find and map dog-friendly pubs near your current location or to search for and do the same for any other location within the UK.
- shows an easy to browse summary of all the pubs within about a 12 mile radius of your chosen location including a star rating and a description
- where a website is provided allows one-click browsing to see more details
- integrates with Google Maps and Google Navigation so that you can easily locate and navigate to the pub of your choice
- includes a one-click telephone option to enable you to contact the pub and make a reservation for yourself and your four legged friend
- provides a link to the Doggie Pubs website to allow you to submit new pubs from your phone
NOTE: since February 2011 (and since v0.8 beta), I am no longer officially associated with doggiepubs.org.uk. I have therefore removed any branding associated with their site. I have continued to use public URLs from the website to obtain data. As I have significantly updated the functionality of this app for my personal use and it seems to have a degree of popularity, I have taken the decision to release these updates to existing users. You should be aware that doggiepubs.org.uk informed me when we parted company at the beginning of the year that they were working on a new official Android app and you may wish to check their website for news of its availability (http://www.doggiepubs.org.uk/mobile/).
