FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 16, 2015
Rock Creek Conservancy’s new app is available for download at the App Store and you can help by testing it and taking a performance survey.
Bethesda, MD — Rock Creek Conservancy is excited to introduce a free app as part of Rock Creek Park’s 125th Anniversary celebration and requests users’ assistance to ensure the app performs as designed.
Harness Rock Creek Park’s natural beauty and enhance your experience with the Rock Creek Conservancy iOS app. Download the app from the App Store and familiarize yourself with it by exploring its features. Afterwards, please take this survey and provide your feedback. The survey takes less than two minutes and your input will allow for further fine-tuning, making sure the app is functioning perfectly.
Use the app to stay up-to-date with events in the parks, learn about how to help protect the parks, and even “find yourself” in the Park by using the maps feature. Specifically, the app will help users:
• Identify and describe numerous facets of the park including trails and markers, miles of tributaries, horse stables, boathouses, fields, recreational sites, and historic Civil War fortifications;
• Sign-up to attend an event with up-to-date event listings and registrations;
• Know their exact whereabouts through geo-location and mapping and never get lost with Google enabled walking and driving directions;
• Share adventures with friends through Facebook and Twitter integration.
An Android version will be developed shortly.
