The Washington Trails Association just released apps for iPhones and Androids. They already had an app for Windows phones.
I did a little happy dance when I heard this news. My husband already had the app on his phone and I was jealous. I’ve already downloaded the app and can’t wait to start playing with it.
Some of the features:
- Check recent trip reports for the conditions of trails (one of WTA’s best resources).
- Search for trips near you and get driving directions to the trailhead.
- Bookmark your favorite hikes.
- Buy the Mountaineers Day Hiking guidebook from within the app for more details about hikes.
WTA’s blog post about the app says you can’t file trip reports from the app yet, but they are working on adding that function.
