  • Dollar sign markers

    By Weather Argonaut
    It would be nice if there was a way to toggle on and off the dollar sign markers that offer discounts nearby parks. They cover up the actual park markers and make it hard to see what I’ve visited. Example: I went to Acadia and marked that as visited, which turned the marker orange, but I can’t see it on the map unless I zoom way in. It is covered by all kinds of dollar sign markers when zoomed out.
  • Provisional rating

    By croixmom
    Confiteor: my original rating with this review was 1 star. The app developer reached out in an effort to help me use the app. I am provisionally changing my original review at this time because our planned visit to Yellowstone is not until summer 2019. I am upping the rating to 5-stars for now based upon the responsiveness of the developer. I strongly believe in supporting developers for great products. ——- I am appreciative for apps which allow the interested person a trial period before deciding if they want to keep and use the app. The free trial period is very brief for this app so be advised. The developer is very responsive and interested in improving the app for the user.
  • Important Planning Details

    By Myoung585
    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.
  • Used to be awesome!

    By ppalmer21
    I loved using Chimani to scope out National Parks before I went, but the new app that combines all the guides is ridiculously bulky and expensive. It costs more than a lot of people pay for an annual pass to our national parks where this information is passed out for free. I get that app developers deserve to make an income, but this app is not worth $50.
  • Not a good value

    By ChrisJB1978
    App is free and but use requires a subscription. The app was handy but didn’t provide any information that you couldn’t get from the nps website or by stopping by a ranger station/visitor center and talking to someone. Understandable development costs need to be recouped, but $30 a year is a bit much for what this app offers and not worth keeping on my phone.
  • Love this app

    By cathywitz
    Even though it’s no longer a free app I still love it. To have so much info in one app is great. I had an issue where I couldn’t download any parks. I emailed the support and their email response time was almost immediate and they fixed the issue within minutes. I was very pleased and impressed.
  • Buggy!!!

    By Foodraf
    HOW MUCH LONGER UNTIL YOU FIX THIS????? When are you going to fix the long term issue of not pulling over previous park visits and then crashing when you try to re-enter them????
  • Pretty Good Tool

    By vbphil
    I like the Search function. Type in Fairy Falls and it takes you to the description page. Then tap the map icon and it shows you where on the map. Also shows your current location. What’s missing is being able to define a list of spots you want to see and have it plot a route.
  • Great app

    By the 60 year old np girl
    Great app! It gives you great information, post the date you visit a park or monument and gives you a badge! We are visiting all the national parks and love this app!
  • New Feature Is Data Usage Intensive

    By Undone000
    It’s great that this one App replaces the multiple Park Apps. One stop shop ... I like it. Yet this new feature is data usage intensive. It downloads each parks info upon request ... then promptly forgets it as it has to download the basic Apps info & unpack it once again before allowing me to choose another Park to review. In fact, if I go back to the same park, it doesn’t realize the park’s info hasn’t been updated since the last download so it downloads and unpacks the Park info again. Bottom line is that I cannot download all the parks I choose to visit & unpack them all once for a multiple-Park road trip.
