DOT Placards App to Be Discontinued
With the release of the Emergency Response Guidebook 2016, the National Institutes of Health has released a free ERG 2016 app for Android and iOS. We have reviewed the new NIH app and found the app comprehensive, well-made, and fully featured.
With previous versions of the NIH app, based on the ERG 2012 content, we felt there were some presentation and search features that our app did better. But the new 2016 NIH app exceeds our own in both features and content. For example, the NIH app now includes the ability to map isolation distances from your current location using street or satellite views.
In light of this, DOT Placards and DOT Placards Plus will be discontinued and removed from Google Play around the end of 2016.
We greatly appreciate all our users and their support that has made DOT Placards our most popular app with over 50,000 installs. Thank you!
Please direct any inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org, however do note that regular support services for these products are also discontinued and you are encouraged to download the NIH app for up-to-date data.
We encourage you to contact us if you are interested in the technologies behind adapting complex publications such as the ERG into app and ebook forms.
