Do you have plans to visit Lake Tahoe? Maybe you live in the area and you're just looking to learn more about your surroundings. The Tahoe Beaches app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone as a way to discover the very best public beaches to visit in the Lake Tahoe area. Not only can you read up on these beaches, the app will also find the nearest ones to you by using GPS. It’s like having your own personal travel guide with you.
Navigating the public beaches in Lake Tahoe couldn't be any quicker thanks to the Tahoe Beaches app. With this app you'll be able to use GPS to find your way around, get driving directions, and find all the best and closest beaches. If you'd rather you can search by the beach features if you're looking for something specific such as boat rentals, barbecues, accessibility, campsites nearby, food concessions, fishing nearby, public parking, and more. You can really pick and choose from the beaches, finding the best one for you.
The Tahoe Beaches app is free to use and doesn’t require any in-app purchases. The app was released almost two years ago and in that time no updates have been done. It has just three out of five stars from users who would like to see more added to the app. The user interface is far from engaging and for this type of content it just needs to be more lively and even offer interactive features.

The User Experience
When you tap on a beach you'll be directed to its own information page where you can read about its hours of operation, contact information, photos of the beach, and more. The Tahoe Beaches app gives users the ability to save their favorite beaches so you don't forget them and provides content on all the public beaches in the area. This includes East Shore, South Shore, West Shore, and North Shore.
On a positive note this app is very easy to use. You are able to find what you’re looking for very quickly and the photos can certainly help you pick which beach you want to visit. It would be great if there were videos and just more details about each beach, even the ability rate them and comment on them as well as read the input from others.
