##About The Park.
Yellowstone National Park was established in 1872 as America's first national park - an idea that spread worldwide. It is a mountain wilderness, home to grizzly bears, wolves, and herds of bison and elk. Old Faithful and the majority of the world's geysers are preserved here.

Very important app to have in the park without cell signal
Not the best app but it’s the only one available. It’s critical to have this app when you don’t have cell signal and need to know where you are and need to go in the park. App needs to have searchable locations and updated trail information. Several trails on the map weren’t accurate on a small portion of the trail while really confused me. It’s possible the park updated sections of the trails and it wasn’t reflected on here. Showing a distance ruler would be helpful to have to so I can estimate distances while hiking.
Loved it - great tool for my day (+) visit
Do as the site says and download the offline content so you can use the app when no cell co stage is available. Came in extremely handy today!
Suggestions for improvement -
1) have the "auto center"(?) feature track you constantly vs just centering on your location when pressed and not following your location if your driving. Easy enough to manually progress the map or retapping the button, but would add to efficiency and effectiveness.
2) An ability to drop a pin or marker to identify to other app users where something interesting you saw is/was... e.g. Bears are "here" or wolves were "there". Obviously this would need to be corroborated and have an "as of time" for the siting or the pin dropping (if offline) and/or fade away as time expires or whatnot. This could also serve as a pattern analysis function where users - or maybe even rangers - could try to anticipate what the best odds of seeing a particular type of animal was or should be able to be seen.
Great resource for the park
Worked well. Good maps. Doesn’t have ALL the trails and stops but still a great resource that can be downloaded before hand for offline mode. Make sure it finishes downloading though in the settings.
Would have liked there to be a little more information about each stop but I don’t think it’s meant to be a comprehensive guide. It could be though and I might even pay for it if it was that good and with more photos.
Otherwise a 5-star for convenience and exceeding expectations.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
