National Geographic launches National Park guide app for iPhone
If you’re planning to visit one of the US national parks, here’s an app that you’d better get on the way there - National Parks by National Geographic. The application is available for free on the App Store, but packs plenty of useful information. Along with it comes one free guide for a park of your choice, and additional guides will cost you from $0.99 to $1.99.
Even without the guide, you get a set of basic features - Park info, camping and lodging information, maps, weather, stats, and a few photos. The guide brings much more details such as tips on what to do and see, park secrets, and plenty of additional photos.
The photographs are needless to say of great quality and annotated, and back in the main page of a park you get to see the weather conditions and stats that will tell you the number of visitors, size of the park and the local time.
But the most fascinating part of the application is the photo tips section. There, the photographer who snapped the picture shares all the details of how he shot, and exact GPS coordinates of the place.
The parks included in National Parks are Acadia, Arches, Bryce Canyon, Death Valley, Everglades, Glacier, Grand Canyon, Grand Teton, Great Smoky Mountains, Haleakala, Hawai’i Volcanoes, Joshua Tree, Mount Rainier, Olympic, Rocky Mountain, Sequoia and Kings Canyon, Shenanadoah, Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Zion.
