Gatineau Park Ski Conditions App
By:  Team XC Ottawa   (2014/01/25)

As a pet project, Dave Doran has developed an Android phone/tablet app for viewing the latest NCC Gatineau Park grooming reports. The app mirrors the latest NCC data from the website, with their permission.

Its much faster and cleaner than the website on a mobile device. Its free to install and no ads. See https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dorand.gpsc.ui

XC Ottawa Testing Review:
5 stars

Tested on a Nexus 5 and an older Nexus 7. Its a small app, install in seconds and runs fast. Much faster than trying to load the NCC site. It does exactly what it describes, mirrors the info currently on the NCC website.

The design is simple and clean. It does away with the tables of thumbs up/down in place of coloured rows - a huge improvement, It reformats the trail name, distance, grooming time to be more compact. Perhaps it could have been condensed to 2 lines instead of 3 to get more info on one screen to avoid a lot of scrolling, but that's a minor complaint.

Here are a few screen shots.

Interesting Reading. . .
