Iowa Interactive Trail App Under Development

Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A new interactive smartphone and computer app featuring Iowa's trails is under development and organizations behind the development hope to launch it later this year.

Once completed, the "Iowa by Trail" app will feature an interactive map that allows users to locate their position, find the closest trail and find points of interest along the way. It also will keep track of distance, weather, news and events and communicate with friends and followers about their experience.

The Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation is working with the Greater Des Moines Partnership, the Des Moines Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, the City of West Des Moines, and other private partners to raise money to produce the app and website. The foundation needs $59,000.

The expected release date for the app is late this year.
