Anyone traveling to or within the United States should definitely take a look at the National Parks. The app from National Geographic Magazine is familiar with all of them. It features facts, photos and maps about the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone Park or the Rocky Mountains. The Idea: the app is being given away for free. Individual guides may be activated via in-app purchase, for a small amount of money.
The app introduces various parks, sorted alphabetically. The user also has the option to download a map that features the location of all of them. The app will determine someone’s current location via GPS and calculate which National Park is nearby.
The app will point out the special features of each park, help the tourist to get there, list entrance fees and also make specific suggestions – perhaps regarding potential hazards at the site. A real eye-catcher are the many photos – they truly arouse the desire to travel in just about anyone.
