| 0 comments

VentureDNA is proud to announce the availability of the first fully integrated GPS and Audio Tour Guide Apple iPhone Mobile App for Yellowstone National Park named GeoRoamer. VentureDNA, recognized as a leader in new media and emerging technology services, managed the development of GeoRoamer which included the on-site mapping of over 125 waypoints with corresponding historic audio files to ensure the tour matched the experience for users while at Yellowstone.  This is the third premium content iPhone app release for VentureDNA that also uses social networking functionality.

VentureDNA, founded by Stewart Dixon, a Chicago based media and technology thought leader, is well known for assisting clients in achieving high-value branding strategies for digital media products across multiple platforms, including Internet, wireless, and emerging device applications.

For travelers going to Yellowstone National Park experiencing the park in a day or multiple days can be challenging, especially when there is so much history to take in at the nation’s first national park and limited park resources to help enrich their experience. GeoRoamer is programmed with detailed information for over 125 key points of interest in the park as well as links to area businesses, from shopping, lodging, camping and dining. The team behind the development of GeoRoamer pulled together over a century of knowledge about the “Geyser Wonderland” with audio tour segments from well-known and respected park experts:  Aubrey Haines, John Good, and Lee Whittlesey. Additionally, they carefully mapped out all of the waypoints with GPS  (Global Positioning System) to use on the Apple iPhone, so visitors will always know where they are, what’s near, and how far to go to the next stop, even without cell phone service.

“Most of the visitors that go to Yellowstone never have the chance to ask a ranger about a particular attraction, but with GeoRoamer, visitors can now get detailed information about the park in the palm of their hand,” Stewart Dixon, CEO of VentureDNA. “We’re excited to provide a cost-effective way to experience Yellowstone that educates adults and children alike while giving back to the organizations that support the park.”

GeoRoamer is available in the Apple iTunes App Store now for $8.99 and includes scheduled updates at http://www.georoameryellowstone.com. Proceeds from the app will go to benefit three organizations (National Parks Conservation Association, The Nature Conservancy, Greater Yellowstone Coalition) selected by the benefactor of the development of GeoRoamer.  Once downloaded, the app will work using GPS coordinates within Yellowstone National Park and will automatically play the audio tour upon approaching each of the over 125 waypoints in the system. The mobile app features the “must see” pre-programmed tour stops as well as giving the user the ability to program their own tour and journal their experience along the way including uploading photos and sharing on Facebook.
