IPhone App Helps People Explore Utah Parks

This company has developed an application for the IPhone that provides portable information on state parks in Utah. They have similar apps for 9 other states. The app provides several ways to search for parks, including a list sorted by region, a map of all parks in the state, GPS location detection to locate parks close to the user, and a search option to search for parks based on specific keywords.

Each park has a description, activities, directions, hours, contact information, current weather, fees, a bulletin board for user comments, and even photo submission directly from your iPhone or iPod touch.

Here's a blip from the developer's website:

“Utah has 43 beautiful state parks that offer opportunities for fun and learning for individuals or families. We invite you to visit your favorite state park or choose one you haven't visited before. There is something for everyone including boating, golfing, camping, hiking, exploring, ATV riding, canoeing, taking photographs, and enjoying the natural beauty of red rock canyons or vast sand covered hills. Take time to get outside and experience the heritage, scenic and recreational state parks that exist for your enjoyment. Learn about the state's rich natural, cultural and historic treasures.”
