The North Face are the latest to release an iPhone app, called the Trailhead the app uses your location to find hikes, bike routs and trails. There’s over 300,000 routes to search for and you can pick by the type of activity, length and location.
Once you start the route the app tracks you, thus gaining information about pace, distance traveled and elevation, all in real time. Once you have finished you then have the ability to send back to your EveryTrail.com account or share on twitter or Facebook.
There’s some branded information in there too, you can read news on the The North Face athlete team and find a local North Face dealer.
There’s plan to expand the app too with weather information, gear list (according to the trail) and challenged to unlock.
So far out of 14 reviews it’s bagged a 4.5 out of 5 star rating. Best of all it’s free to download.
Following on from mainly outdoors retailers the National Trust have released a new iPhone app.
The main idea of the app is to inform users of National Trust locations in the vicinity. The app uses the gps function of the phone to determine the users location, local trust sites then are listed by location. Each location details opening times and facilities.
More detail can then be pulled and a map from your current location to the Trust site can be displayed.
The Outdoors guidebook publisher Cicerone Press have released a brand new and free iPhon app. The app allows you to see the list of all titles published by Cicerone.
The app uses the technology of the phone to also give you a eight-figure OS grid reference which is great for finding your position. There also a guide to what to do in an emergency on the mountains and a picture uploader to the the Cicerone website.
The app can be downloaded from the app store now!
