Chimani offers free iPhone, iPad, iPod touch apps for National Park Week

Chimani announced today that all iOS and Android national park apps will be free in celebration of National Park Week, which runs from April 21-29. In order to encourage users to download the apps before National Park Week, the apps will be free starting on Wednesday, April 18th. The Chimani national park apps normally sell for $4.99-$9.99 each and have an average user rating of 4 1/2 stars.

“Last year we gave away over 100,000 apps during National Park Week – it was a huge success and we’re excited to do it again”, says Chimani President, Kerry Gallivan, in the press release. “Our goal is to reach a million downloads this year and to encourage just as many people to visit their local national park.”

The Chimani suite of national park apps include Acadia National Park, Cape Cod National Seashore, Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Grand Canyon National Park, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park, Zion National Park and the National Parks app – a virtual passport for tracking visits to all national parks.

The Chimani national park apps are an indispensable resource for anyone exploring some of our most treasured parks. Each app delivers constantly updated information, ranger-led event schedules, auto touring points of interest, hiking guides, restroom locations, detailed maps, free shuttle bus schedules, and breaking news alerts. Users can also view sunset and sunrise times for the most memorable scenic overlooks, access tide schedules along the coast, review lodging options, and much, much more.

  1. What? No Glacier National Park!?! ; )
    Sure, I’m biased, having grown up near GNP. Nevertheless, this looks like a wonderful opportunity which I shall take advantage of! Thanks!

    1. Thanks for the feedback, Steve. More design enhancements are on the way….we’ve submitted the latest update to Apple and they will all be converted over to Universal apps (iPhone/iPad) and have some fun gesture-based actions built into the UX.

  2. CVNP has one of the apps! Woo-hoo! I go there all the time to ride the Towpath Trail. I’m going to download this thing as soon as I’m on Wi-Fi.


    1. @LordRobin. Many people are surprised to find out that Cuyahoga Valley NP is one of the Top Ten Most Visited National Parks. LOVE the Towpath there!

  3. Beautiful app just love it. Having spent my childhood in New England it means a lot. My friend up in Bangor, ME will appreciate this as well. BTW, he’s a 91 year old photographer up there still clicking away and living his iPad as well. Thank you.
