Description

Download the Official Tennessee 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 Tennessee 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 Tennessee 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.

No suggestions, just some feedback on the nice work to all involved in creating this App. I've used it for my past two overnight park visits and have found the information to be relevant and accurate. The GPS feature is convenient and helps when on the road trying to find a nearby park with the appropriate amenities. Haven't found any suggestions yet but will pass them along if I find any. Overall a very comprehensive tool and thank you for offering online reservations this year.

Thanks again

Static info is strong. Social integration is poor.

I'm excited to see the state of Tennessee have this app. The static information about the parks is well setup and allows you to search for parks in a number of ways.

My biggest beef is with the functionality. This app has primitive integration with flickr, Twitter, Facebook, etc. and spends way too much time explaining itself and offerings legalese. I hope to see future updates scrape the "News Releases" and "Pocket Ranger Blog" sections and to change out the Friend Finder pin tool for FourSquare and the RSS Twitter feed for a true Twitter connection.
