Recently, a surprising update popped up in our Facebook feed from Mad Dog in the Fog:
Mad Dog has an iPhone app? Does anyone else around here? Inquiring minds wanted to know.
So, we investigated.
As it turns out, Mad Dog is one of the very, very few businesses in the Lower Haight with an iPhone app (that we know of, at least).
The free Mad Dog app includes a basic food and beer menu, hours and address information, and a contact form for leaving feedback. It also has shortcut buttons if you need to call the bar or send friends a meet-me-at-Mad-Dog text.
Another local app we found on iTunes is one by Upper Playground.
The app features a selection of U.P. tees, books, and prints that you can purchase with just a few taps. There are also links to the shop’s website and Facebook page.
The Vapor Room has a pretty potent app, and it’s also free:
The app features a menu of cannabis offerings, a calendar of events at the shop, special deals, and a section devoted to marijuana-related news. There’s also the standard address/hours/contact info.
Unsurprisingly, this app is restricted to those 17 years old and up.
There’s only one other Lower Haight-relevant app that we know of, though we doubt you’ll find the free Walgreens app too useful at the moment.
Know of any other apps in the neighborhood? If so, do tell.
