Ratings and Reviews

More than I expected...


I downloaded this app because it was free and I love to visit the National Parks of the US. I was surprised that it had so many animals and wildlife listed, and for the birds you can actual listen to the songs. I paid for an app that was only bird calls and this one has way more birds for free! It would be cool if they offered that feature for the other animals like frogs and bats. But it seems like an extra feature so I'm not complaining, especially for a free app. The pictures are fantastic, and there's great info for each item. It covers mammals, birds, reptiles, trees.... and they can also be located by dangerous, or endangered for the area. It even tells you other animals that may look similar to the one selected.
The info about the specific park selected is also good. It includes a link to the website, as well as contact info and hours for the park/ visitor center which I am really happy about.

I would like to see more things added with updates or a paid version, like Niagara Falls and Cuyahoga Valley National Park which is a fairly new addition to the National Parks list.

Awesome APP!!!!

Amazingly complete and useful


Love this app - there are SO many pictures, calls, and so much information. I found it really convenient when I used it this past weekend. Worked perfectly on my 3gs even when we were pretty far from civilization. Found out what I always thought was the cry of a red-tailed hawk was actually a sharp-shinned hawk-- very cool. While I hear folks who want to be able to download it all onto their phone, it's a huge app and I don't think I want all that data clogging up my iPhone. To each his own!

Great organization, app not so much.


I love the NPCA and was excited to try out their app. Essentially it is an advertisement to join the organization, there are often pop ups with information on joining, which is slightly frustrating since I am already a member! As for the guides themselves... There is a little work to be done. For example if you select endangered species found in Death Valley National Park it lists the blue and humpback whales. It will be a nice reference with some development. I use it in addition to the Audubon guides to get an idea of what species will be found in a specific park.
