The new Chimani National Parks app lets you create a virtual passport
so you can record your trips to any of the National Park System’s 394
sites, including monuments, memorials, seashores, recreational areas,
battlefields, historical parks, and parkways. Create your ‘‘passport’’ by
‘‘stamping’’ the parks you have visited using a custom-designed ‘‘postal
stamp.’’ Created by a company based in Yarmouth, Maine, the app also
features an interactive map showing each park’s location; nearly 400
photos; and a daily news feed that provides up-to-date information,
features, and commentaries on the park system. It will be available to
Apple users for free through July ($.99 thereafter); the Android version
will be out mid-June. 207-221-0266.
