Chimani Celebrates National Park Week with Free Apps

Chimani, LLC announced 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 reach its goal of one million downloads the apps will be free starting immediately—plenty of time to download the apps before next week’s celebration.

The Chimani national park apps normally sell for between $4.99-$9.99 each and have an average rating of 4½ stars.

“Last year we gave away over 100,000 apps during National Park Week—it was a huge success and we had less than a quarter of the apps we have today,” says Chimani President, Kerry Gallivan.

“Our goal to reach a million downloads and to encourage just as many people, especially children, to visit our national parks. Download them today, and visit the parks next week!”
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
  • National Parks app (a virtual passport tool for all the National Park Service units)

Chimani apps are your travel guide, map, audio tour and a whole lot more thrown into a single app.

Each of the national park apps are an indispensable resource for anyone exploring some of the nation’s most treasured national parks.

Each delivers constantly updated content, ranger led event schedules, auto touring points of interest, hiking details, restroom locations, 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.

The Chimani iOS and Android apps can be downloaded directly from Apple’s iTunes App Store and the Android versions from Google Play (keyword: “chimani”).

Worth Pondering…
We shall not cease from exploration

And the end of all our exploring

Will be to arrive where we started

And know that place for the first time.

— T. S. Eliot, Little Gidding
