The first AR-enabled mobile application by the National Parks Board (NParks), the Coast-to-Coast (C2C) mobile application provides users with a curated walking experience across a series of parks and park connectors. The mobile application enhances the user’s experience with interactive Augmented Reality (AR) elements, information on points of interest, alerts to special events and promotions as well as opportunities to earn attractive rewards.
Key features include:
1) Way-finding to and on the C2C Trail
Navigate to the C2C Trail and explore interesting sights and attractions around.
Locate and find your way to the nearest park amenities and F&B establishments.
2) Info-edutainment via 3D-animated Augmented Reality characters
Visit all 10 checkpoints along the C2C Trail and use the AR scanning mode to bring fun animal characters to life.
Watch as 3D-animated characters provide interesting information about the park and surrounding points of interest.
Learn about different native animals while at each checkpoint. Before you leave for the next checkpoint, make sure to complete quests to earn reward points.
3) Create and share your C2C experience
Take lots of photos and share them with others. Capture unique scenery, majestic heritage trees, interesting animals or cool cafes and restaurants you find along the way.
Share your experience with friends and family on other social media platforms.

Ratings and Reviews
Poor App Design
The app appears to have been designed by a disgruntled employee or a government bureaucrat who simply wants to check a box. No inspiration, lacks ooomph, unappealing and unfriendly to users, no sexiness at all. AR is not apparent. Were you just using a buzzword?
Specifically, maps are not drawn to scale and not clear. Why didnt you use Google Apple maps? It should also have a feature to show Directions for people who are mere tourists in SG and not too familiar with the landmarks and places. Integrate it with a good Map app lah!
Don’t bother with this app
This app doesn’t even tell you the distance between the checkpoints despite the GPS tracking it does of your whereabouts. The points of interest feature is the only slightly valuable information the app provides. There is the opportunity to post photos of yourself on the app if that’s important to you. Otherwise, the app is not worth the time it takes to download or the space it takes up on your phone.
