The Much-Awaited Alabama State Parks Pocket Ranger® Smartphone App is Here!
Attention all park goers, nature lovers, and outdoor enthusiasts: there is now a FREE smartphone app for you!
ParksByNature Network™ in partnership with Alabama State Parks is proud to announce the launch of the Alabama State Parks Pocket Ranger® Smartphone App for iPhone and Android.
This FREE, on-the-go interactive guide gives users access to Alabama’s 22 state parks with detailed information on campgrounds, amenities, facility maps, directions and more. Plan that perfect outdoor trip by searching for a park by GPS location or activity to find nearby locations to enjoy hiking, camping, boating, birding, and more. Once you’re there, advanced GPS and GIS mapping technology will allow you to track and record trails, mark waypoints, and locate your friends within the parks. You can even cache GPS maps in advance to ensure that navigation remains possible in the event of lost mobile reception.
The app provides plenty of other features to maximize your outdoor adventure:
· Record trail distance and time elapsed
· Recall, post or share saved data
· Friend Finder
· Built-in compass
The Alabama State Parks Pocket Ranger® is now available on iTunes and Android Market.
