Carrollton Introduces New Trails App for Mobile Devices




Dallas-based GlobalWebHQ and the city of Carrollton are bringing a free new Carrollton, Texas, Trail Guide App to smartphones and other mobile devices in January 2016. With increased public use of the trails system for both leisure and transportation, Carrollton is leading the way as the first in the state with such a project to improve the user experience for one of our most popular assets. Emergency numbers are also included within the app.

Walkers, runners, and cyclists will enjoy the many capabilities the app provides to enhance the experience of the trails they love. Users will be able to view their location live to find the nearest trail or track their live location while on a Carrollton trail. When using the app along the trails, dialog boxes will appear to notify users of nearby facilities, features along their route, or provide noteworthy information about current surroundings.

Information about park and trail hours, distances and amenities are also available, and to promote safety and trail etiquette, the app includes friendly reminders about guidelines to follow when using the trails, including reminders to pick up after pets and pass on the left.
