Smartphone App of the Week
This week’s app is by The North Face and encourages an outdoor active lifestyle, which is a great app to have if you’re an adventurous traveler. The North Face Trailhead (iTunes) locates where you are on the map and then finds all the hiking and biking trails nearby. This app has GPS so it can also find outdoor events nearby as well as the capability to track your speed, route, distance, elevation, and of course, the nearest North Face store. You will also be able to share pictures and stories of your adventures on Facebook, Twitter, and on the website, http://EveryTrail.com.
