Description

Download the Official Massachusetts State Parks Pocket Ranger® app to enhance any of your state park visits!

This FREE all-inclusive outdoor guide was created in a collaborative effort between Massachusetts State Parks and ParksByNature Network™.

Powered by Pocket Ranger® technology, the app gives outdoor enthusiasts an environmentally friendly way to enjoy the parks. It contains everything you need to plan a trip to the state parks, navigate them once you get there, and share your experiences afterward.

Highlighted features include:

•Sleek user interface (UI) -- more photo-centric home screen design.
•Photo galleries on each park description page.
•A search feature to optimize search capabilities, allowing various ways to search by locations, activities, category, and site name. Making it easier to find the perfect recreational destination.

The app also has rich GPS features, such as:

•Advanced GPS Maps, complete with an accuracy and distance indicator, which allow you to access trail data, record tracks from hikes, runs, or bike rides, and view elapsed time and distance traveled.
•Easy-to-cache GPS Terrain Map tiles, which ensure that navigation remains possible in the event of lost mobile reception.
•Photo waypoint feature allowing you to snap a photo and mark and record the coordinates of plant life, animal species or landscape views. Post or share these remarkable finds with family and friends with the click of a button.
•Friend Finder features that tracks friends and family around the parks.
•Built-in compass.
•Potentially life-saving Alert feature that supplies GPS coordinates to designated contacts in case of an emergency.

Other standard features make exploring the great outdoors a breeze:

•Thorough information on all state parks including general policy, contact information, activities, trails, park maps and much more.
•Detailed, cacheable maps of park facilities, trails and campgrounds.
•Up-to-date news, park advisories and weather information.
•Sharing features for sharing current positions, waypoints and recorded tracks via Facebook, Twitter, or email.
•A real-time Calendar of Events.
•Access to online reservations that make it easy to secure overnight visits.
•Plus so much more!

With the Pocket Ranger® in hand, prepare to bask in the vast natural wonders of Massachusetts State Parks & Forests!

•The enhanced pro features on the app are designed to function in areas with little to no mobile reception; however, some of the features require mobile data reception in order to function properly.
•Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

I was hopeful but now

I am truly disappointed. I was so excited to download this to accompany my new park pass and found this app to be useless. I couldn't register by email. An "enter password" box kept appearing but there was nowhere to enter a password. The map does not load, in fact it freezes the entire app. Lastly, no GPS tours within 150 miles? Within 10 mile radius, I am near about 8 different state parks. I hope there is an update soon that will make this a more exciting and interactive experience.

Love it!

Very easy to navigate, efficiently designed. I initially got the app to find out what state parks had campgrounds, however also use it to find out local historic sites and clean public beaches nearby.

Does not appreciate the user experience

I got this app the 100th anniversary of the National Parks. Features like top & bottom banners, and (once) mid web-view along with poor information structure sink this app.

I did find a new destination while using the app. This was, however, in spite of the app. Just chose well (or lucky).
