As the weather gets nice and more people are heading out into nature, the GeekWire team decided it was time to feature a great parks app as their app of the week.
GeekWire's Todd Bishop calls the National Parks app from National Geographic, "Probably the coolest sort of magazine style app I've ever seen."
The base version of the app is free and offers pictures, a park guide, and a map for each of the National Parks. There are options to expand content for each park for an additional fee.
"Everything from Mt. Rainier right here in our backyard to Haleakala in Maui," said Bishop of what the app covers.
The app also lets visitors post 'I was here' tags as well as favorite particular park campgrounds and lodging sites.
