iOS Trail Apps for Northwest Trail Adventures

June 26, 2013

SUN VALLEY, Idaho, June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Just in time for summer, a set of iOS apps from 4 Points LLC (in conjunction with pro endurance mountain biker Sam Young) that help get you outside to find new trail adventures. Put all the trails for your Northwest vacation destination in your pocket with trail apps that show an interactive map and list of popular routes for the following areas: Bend Oregon, PortlandOregon, Boise Idaho, McCall Idaho, Stanley Idaho, and Sun Valley Idaho.

“I wanted to create an app that I could use for my long training rides. I have spent thousands of hours riding and racing trails all over the Northwest, so I had a good idea of what would be important to have in an app,” says Young. “The app works without cell coverage or connections to Wi-Fi.”When you have the app, you have the map” was definitely a guiding design principle. Part of the reason to get out on these longer adventures is to get away from it all and sometimes that means being away from cell coverage. Also, having a map when there is no cell-coverage is critical. It is really nice not to have to think about downloading or caching something before I go,” remarks Young.

“Over the years I have used many different guidebooks and maps,” Young continues. ” They have all been great but taking advantage of the “you are here” dot that the smartphone allows takes navigation to a whole new level of simplicity. When I am tired and just trying to get home, it is nice to not have to be finding landmarks and instead I can just look at the app to see where I want to go. The only problem with using this app is that I get spoiled and lazy with my navigation skills.” jokes Young.

This series of trail apps for iOS is available in the Apple iTunes Store for 0.99 USD for the following locations: Bend Oregon, PortlandOregon, Boise Idaho, McCall Idaho, Stanley Idaho, and Sun Valley Idaho. Put all the trails in your pocket!
