I was really excited about this app, however, since I have downloaded it, I have only been able to get it work twice, without waiting for the "spinning wheel of death." Most times, it just spins, and spins, and spins, and spins.....and spins...grat idea, but needs some work. UPDATE: The app takes so long to open, that by the time we're done at the location, we're ready to go...and it still hasn't opened...

It's just a map app! Nothing else works. I was excited to find out about this app, but I was apprehensive to download it based on the 3.5 stars. The app is either counterintuitive or plain worthless. The search bar doesn't return any results even though it says 'search for anything...' I can't even favorite a trail or are there 100 steps that I'm missing to get to this blessed feature? I guess this app is just another failed state funded project.

Hi Kevin, not sure what's going on, but if you aren't seeing any search results, something's broken. And you can favorite a trail (or, for that matter, any other location) by tapping the "star" button on any screen in the app. We'd love to help figure out what's going on. Please reach out to our support team at visitors+android@outerspatial.com.

UPDATE 2/27/23: Latest app update appears to have fixed endless spinning ball on startup, so revising rating. App has a lot of good content and communities, so find your favs, and use as an additional source for outdoor adventures. More offline content would be only improvement. ORIGINAL 2/15/23: Never worked, would just spin and spin. Uninstalled and reinstalled, as well as restarting phone. Nothing worked. Weird that it was on the state parks website, when it appears to be obsolete.
