It’s not my repertoire

It’s not my repertoire to give thanks and praise for good service that I expect and deserve. But in the case of Chimani I will make an exception; their service and communication is without fault, almost instantaneous; the information provided in accurate and up to date, the app the most useful of all, nothing comes even close. The yearly membership was given too me as a gift, a gift that keeps giving and giving. If your a US traveler, purchasing this app with all the benefits, services and discounts it provides is a decision you will never regret. Money well spent and wisely. Ralph, NJ, USA

Multi-park app problem

The individual national park Chimani apps are excellent and an amazing resource especially since park data can be downloaded for use when no cell service is available. The problem with this replacement all parks in one app is while you can ostensibly download the data for offline use for multiple parks you still can’t switch between the parks without service, making pre-downloading pointless for multi-park tours in areas without reliable cell service.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback. It may appear you can’t switch, however, if you’ve downloaded the park guide previously, it is available. The problem, which you helped reveal, is that the images are not being cached locally and appear “broken”. We’ll going to look into it and figure out the issue. Thank you!

Important Planning Details

We have a bucket list of over two-hundred National Parks, Monuments, and Seashores/Lakeshores. We use Chimani as one of our sources to help identify things we want to see and do. It isn’t 100% accurate, but is certainly worth reviewing whenever you need to plan a trip involving National Parks, and it gives important information about the park faster than the NPS web sites do. I just purchased the life-time subscription so we will have access to this app for the rest of our travels.
