NOTES

Download the app on Wi-Fi from your network at home or use any free Wi-Fi network. Because the app is filled with audio commentary and maps, its larger than "normal" apps. Many phone/data networks may block the download because of size - so its important to download over a Wi-Fi network.

++ Continued use of GPS running in the background increases battery usage - we strongly recommend taking a cigarette style (DC outlet) car charger. This is much better than simply plugging into the USB port in a vehicle.

** iPad users - please note that WiFi-only iPads will not activate the commentary automatically. Any iPhone or network-capable iPad (WiFi + Cellular - whether you have a network connection or not) will work just fine.

Like having your own personal Park Ranger

This app is absolutely amazing. I never write reviews for anything but I had to come back and write one for this... having traveled to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons for the first time last week, this app was so so helpful in all that we did there. The app not only guides you as you are traveling along (maybe having half an idea of what you’d like to do), it gives you tons of background historical and scientific info about what you are visiting. The guide friendly directs you as you drive along and makes helpful suggestions about stops throughout the parks. I really appreciated the categorization of ‘do not miss’ verses suggested stops. All of this together resulted in us not only navigating the vast parks painlessly, we saw so much more than we would have seen without it. We also learned an incredible amount of history and and scientific side notes that made what we were seeing more meaningful than without the guide. Really impressed by it. Very well done; developed with much thought about what a first time traveler to the park would need. Lots of info; very kind and polite commentary/ direction as well as very appreciated humor thrown in. Do not hesitate to purchase this app to guide you through the park if you’ve never been. Honestly, it’s like having your own personal Park Ranger in the car with you! And he’s funny and very pleasant to listen to!!

This app literally guided me!

For some reason, my Googlemaps and Waze weren’t picking up the location of what I entered when I was ready to drive through Yellowstone through to the Grand Tetons. Yet I remembered I’d purchased this app to learn a bit of what I’d be seeing along the way, and fired it up. What I didn’t expect is that this app pretty much saved me!! Because of the GPS awareness, it would preview upcoming forks in the road well in advance so I was confident driving in the direction that matched my overall plan. (Not sure why this worked when the other apps didn’t- but yay!!) I loved that the voice was not always on. I liked that you could pause the narrative too (which I learned after trying to film which videos and hoping not to hear the narrator’s voice while recording. Using another app doesn’t silence the guy.) I really appreciated learning tidbits about the history and the nature I was passing through. A great use of location-based services. Well worth the investment... I’m walking away with greater appreciation for where I drove through or where I chose to stop and hike around...

Don't go without it!

We planned a week-long family vacation to Yellowstone and Grand Teton, my first time visiting the parks. I did days of research on the web, bought a couple of guidebooks and studied them, made notes on what we should see. I came across this app and decided to buy it based on the reviews. Even though I had done a lot of my own research ahead of time, the app was really, really hepful. So nice to have it tell you what is coming up ahead so you can decide whether to stop to see different things. And the history of the parks, and information the geology and wildlife, were fascinating! No question in my mind it was worth the $10 and it made the trip more enjoyable and educational.

Small problems with glitches (app played narration for the wrong travel direction), and we heard the same stories several times while driving around the park over a few days. Also I wish you could set the map to travel-direction-up instead of North-up.

But, the app was so incredibly helpful that I'm giving it 5 stars despite those small problems.

Developer Response

Hi Matt Thanks for your review. Would you mind to send us an email info@gypsyguide.com if you remember the area or story where the point played in the wrong direction. Haven't received any other reports, but we might need to tweak the range of that point. Many thanks. GG
