Oh, Ranger! ParkFinder


"Even if it weren’t free, Oh, Ranger! ParkFinder™ would be well worth downloading." - Bob Tedeschi, The New York Times

"Oh, Ranger! is your virtual guide to the outdoors — you fire up the app, plug in your location and either see which parks are near you or find an activity you want to do to filter out the parks that let you do it. It's awesome." - Gizmodo

"After you enter your Zip code or city and select an activity — bird watching, say, or boating — this app will direct you to nearby national parks, state parks, or national forests that suit your needs. The app, which works on iPads and iPhones, also provides directions, weather, and lodging suggestions."

Need the same data as ios Was with family when we all good this app. WE loved it. Then I stated looking at it when I got home and realized there are none of my local parks on the app, but they are on my wife's iPhone. Very disappointed that the data is not the same. Also tried the update button but no effect.... Great potential for the app, but merger the data between operating systems. There are no where near the options to select of activities as in the ios. Especially the ones I would use with small children

Nice resource Told me about places I didn't even know were nearby, and there's a decent amount of info. But at least one of the places it said was near me, actually wasn't - however when I contacted them, I got a very fast response saying they would fix it. Info shown includes links to the official website when available; it would also be cool if there was a link to do a web search for the same place, to quickly get more info, photos, etc.
