It’s not my repertoire

It’s not my repertoire to give thanks and praise for good service that I expect and deserve. But in the case of Chimani I will make an exception; their service and communication is without fault, almost instantaneous; the information provided in accurate and up to date, the app the most useful of all, nothing comes even close. The yearly membership was given too me as a gift, a gift that keeps giving and giving. If your a US traveler, purchasing this app with all the benefits, services and discounts it provides is a decision you will never regret. Money well spent and wisely. Ralph, NJ, USA


Important Planning Details

We have a bucket list of over two-hundred National Parks, Monuments, and Seashores/Lakeshores. We use Chimani as one of our sources to help identify things we want to see and do. It isn’t 100% accurate, but is certainly worth reviewing whenever you need to plan a trip involving National Parks, and it gives important information about the park faster than the NPS web sites do. I just purchased the life-time subscription so we will have access to this app for the rest of our travels.


New Feature Is Data Usage Intensive

It’s great that this one App replaces the multiple Park Apps. One stop shop ... I like it. Yet this new feature is data usage intensive. It downloads each parks info upon request ... then promptly forgets it as it has to download the basic Apps info & unpack it once again before allowing me to choose another Park to review.

In fact, if I go back to the same park, it doesn’t realize the park’s info hasn’t been updated since the last download so it downloads and unpacks the Park info again.

Bottom line is that I cannot download all the parks I choose to visit & unpack them all once for a multiple-Park road trip.

Developer Response

Thank you for your review. A clarification - the initial download of the guides does require a data transfer however from that point forward the app only checks to see if there is a new version guides, otherwise it loads the already downloaded version.

Your feedback tells us that there is confusion with continuing to use the “download of park guide complete ” upon each launch and will look to clarify it so people realize it’s not constantly downloading data.
