    I'm willing to update this review for future improvements but right now this app is wholly unhelpful. Ive now been to several springs noted on this map that were either mislocated, nonexistent, on private property, or not hot (i.e. A cold spring). The data on this app pulls from some 3rd party source and is clearly outdated. There is no description of how to get to a spring and no ability for user reviews or comments. This app is way beta right now.
  • It's a start, but not nearly good enough...

    More info, different icons for hot springs you can swim in vs once that you die in. User contributed reviews and actual photos, not just a search. Push notifications for when you are nearby a spring. Ability to follow a hot springs reviews and photos, message board. So much room for improvement.

    App provides little to no info on hot springs or directions to them. Also it gives misleading temps of the springs themselves (at the source) not the pools that you would actually sit in. It links to websites that might be useful but is far from being an all in one guide. It's worth about what it costs
  • For the frequent soaker

    We went to explore few spots shown on the map and most places were outdated. Would not recommend it.

    That US Hot Springs are showed - in at least 1 view - sorted by distance from my present location, is quite useful. Perhaps MORE INFORMATION, regarding each site - audio & visual details from each site, in addition to verbal/text descriptions, are also available regarding each location & related amenities...
  • Hot springs app is useful

    I like that it shows a map and you can zone in on your location to find hot springs. The app would be improved if it began with my current location. Another improvement would be if it included whether it is a developed or undeveloped site. And if it can be reached by road or foot.

    I was excited to discover that I was surrounded by hot springs on this portion of my road trip. I set out to find them with the help of this app... I followed the map to 3 different hot springs, one of which was totally dry with no sign of a spring, one seemed to be pointing to a little stream on private ranch land, blocked by barbed wire, and one was, indeed, a hot springs resort that was closed and was incredibly overpriced anyway. I looked for a couple more but to no avail. I did see 2 obvious hot spots in a field surrounded by cows but those, incidentally, were not shown on the map in this app. This app needs more info if they are going to show every teeny seep in the country- private vs public land, developed or not, how many gallons per minute maybe, accessible to soak... Whether it's worth looking for, all that. Without additional information this app is, unfortunately, useless. Disappointing...
