Please update parks

Why doesn’t the app show the gateway arch or Indiana Dunes as national parks yet?
By Guy23

Great app, fast, fantastic support!

I use tons of apps, but rarely do reviews, but, with such exemplary support, I have to do this review. There was a small problem with my account, caused by me, and they happily rectified it lightning quick. I love supporting worthy developers. Thanks!

Need a toggle for state parks

Update: Chimani support was great after emailing them. They directed me to the area to find what I was looking for. The original map with only the 419 parks still exists, but has moved to a different area. 5 stars! It would be nice if there was a way to toggle on and off the state parks on the map that were recently added. With the addition of these new state park markers to the map, it is now impossible to be able to see only the national parks that I have left to visit. It has caused the map to become extremely cluttered. Can there be a preference to toggle the state parks on/off for those people who are trying to focus solely on the 419 units of the National Park Service?

Thank you for telling me how to fix!

My issue is resolved. Love this app! Essential for our goal to visit all National Parks!!!

It might be a good app if you spend the $30 a year subscription, but the free app is worthless. I wish that in the description the App developer was clear about the subscription costs. Many apps have a free version that has some things, but this free version is useless The information you get is absolutely not worth the price of this subscription. All of it you could easily get online or from the literature at the entrance gate of national parks.

Used to be unuseful, now worthless

Wouldn't store park info before. Now they charge a ridiculous fee for info that can be had for free from other sources. I have deleted this app.

A waste of $30

There is absolutely no redeeming feature of this app. The parks themselves provide better and more insight than this ripoff. They stole $30 from me, DO NOT let this happen to you! A complete waste of storage space.

Free trial

Not free at all. Will not let you try it out unless you have either sufficient funds on apple store for full year or credit card on file with apple

Great app!

I’ve been using this app for many years and find it incredibly useful! There are a few little things that have been identified in other reviews, so I’m not going to repeat them. This app is well worth having and using if you frequent the National Parks - especially if you hike into the parks, beyond the parking lots and congestion. I spend a lot of time on remote trails, and some not so remote. There have been several times this app helped me find my way back after a long day on a confusing trail system. I always carry a paper map (as a backup), but there’s nothing like being able to view your location on a downloaded map of the trail system! Btw, I even carry a small solar panel to charge my phone. As with most apps, you MUST use it and familiarize yourself with it to fully benefit from its many features.

Won’t Regret It

This app is great for planning national park trips! I’ve used it on my last five and it always gives great tips and ideas. Download it!
