Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Official Florida State Parks & Beaches Outdoor Guide - Pocket Ranger® app is now available!
This FREE all-inclusive outdoor guide was created in a collaborative effort between Alabama 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.
•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 Florida State Parks!
•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.
What's New in Version 6.4.0
To get ready for your outdoor adventures we've made some updates to content and features.
Check them out!
iPhone 6/6+ support
Built against latest iOS SDK
Minor bug fixes and improvements
Update causing crash
I use this app regularly and just loaded the update to optimize iPhone 6. Now I can't get the app to open. Ugh. Will have to use website. Can you drop the "looking for updates" (as I can't get past that) and just get users straight to content since the App Store notifies if an update is available? If there is a fix to get this back to seeing all the parks and amenities I'll revise and rate back to 5 stars!
I downloaded this app a while back to discover more of Florida. With the update, the app will not go past the update check. It consistently crashes and I've deleted and downloaded the app multiple times on two devices! Please fix this! I recommended the app to someone and embarrassingly enough, the same thing happened to them.
Wanted to use this today, but it keeps crashing....
