Best Outdoor Apps

Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

In 2021 there is an app for most everything! Including a variety of outdoor activities. From hiking and biking to exploring the night sky there’s an app for that!

1. AllTrails- With this app you gain access to over 200,000 trails. When you GPS location on your phone and the app access to your location you can ensure you are staying on the trail.

2. Cairn- a great app for anyone in the outdoors! Download a map of the area you will be going to, assign a safety circle to be notified if you are gone too long, and start your adventure! Cairn comes with a 30 day free trial, and after that it requires a membership. The price is $4.99 a month or $26.99/year. That seems like a good deal for those who are often outside of cell range!

3. Sky Walker 2-if viewing constellations in augmented reality for free is your cup of tea this is a great app for you! Great for exploring the night sky whether indoors our out!

4. HuntStand- allows users to map their hunting location, determine if land is public or private, and mark game sightings. Built in weather shows wind speed and direction.

5. iNaturalist- an app to identify the flora and fauna around you. Once a user uploads an image the app works to give possible answers based on image recognition. For us it has worked really well!

6. First Aid:American Red Cross- having a basic knowledge of first aid procedures is imperative in case of an emergency. Having an app that can teach you anything you might not know is the ultimate way to be prepared!

With so many apps and so little phone space we want to make sure the apps we are using are helpful. These six apps can add to your outdoor experiences.
