App Description

WHAT DO YOU WANT? ACCURATE INFORMATION vs. USER-PROVIDED CONTENT

Have you ever relied on a site's user-provided content, and then found it incomplete, contradictory, or just plain wrong? You know the ones ... the site or the app doesn't do their own research, and instead relies on random people on the Internet choosing to research and then post information for the site. That approach is particularly bad when detailed, factual information is required for places such as dog parks. Will the site or the app mention that a special city permit is required for all dogs and the park is closed on Wednesday mornings for maintenance? Do you want to visit a dog park and incur unexpected user-fees? Worse yet, do you want to drive to a dog park and find it closed? How about the park with leash laws that a reviewer neglects to mention? And when it comes to leash laws, size does matter. Many parks allow a maximum of 6 ft., others allow 8 ft. leashes; some parks do not allow retractable or training leashes. Do you really want to rely on user-provided opinions and content for bad information that may cost you a fine?

Apptika's Dog Parks App is an AUTHORITATIVE guide to dog-friendly parks, beaches and trails throughout New York City. The information in this dog park app comes from municipal, county, state and federal agencies. If there is ever any question about what is going on at a particular park, beach or trail, we provide the government Web site and telephone contact information.
