Chimani and the Maine Island Trail Association, today launched the latest version of the Maine Island Trail mobile app, a guide to the unique islands and waterways along the coast of Maine. The Maine Island Trail app is available for immediate download on the iOS App Store, Google Play, and Amazon AppStore.
The latest version provides boaters the ultimate mobile tool for planning a trip along Maine’s rocky coast, along with anchorages, boat launches, tide charts, campsites, hiking trails, and more. The Maine Island Trail app exists within a suite of more than 25 free National Park and outdoor destination guide apps offered by the Portland, Maine based company Chimani.
“We’re extremely excited about the latest version of the Maine Island Trail app,” said Kerry Gallivan, Chimani’s CEO. “There are few places that give you the true Maine experience quite like the Maine Island Trail, and the app makes navigating the trail simple, without the need of a cellular connection.”
The app boasts rich, detailed information on the 375-mile recreational waterway trail that stretches across more than 200 islands from Kittery to Eastport. App features include:
- interactive guides and maps to more than 520 unique points of interest, including: camping sites, anchorages, day use areas, boat launches, hand carry launches, tides, pumpout stations, and more
- GPS-enabled maps that work without a cell or Wi-Fi connection
- a calendar of Maine Island Trail Association events
- sunrise and sunset times with top viewing locations
- a photo gallery with more than 195 high-quality images
“The Maine Island Trail App is a must-have tool for anyone planning a trip off the Maine Coast,” reports MITA Executive Director Doug Welch. “While not for navigation, it provides everything in MITA’s paper guidebook plus features including stunning photos and a real-time events calendar. Fans of the original app will be amazed by Chimani’s new platform. MITA continues to be thrilled to partner with Chimani on this made-in-Maine app that so brilliantly captures this made-in-Maine water trail.”
About Maine Island Trail Association
The Maine Island Trail Association (www.mita.org) is a membership organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the wild islands of coastal Maine. Founded in 1988, the Maine Island Trail is America’s first recreational water trail. It includes 217 island and mainland stopping points for day-use and overnight camping. The trail is managed by MITA’s 5,000+ members who volunteer their time to its stewardship. Founded with the powerfully simple idea that the care of the islands could be left to the users of these treasured and fragile places, MITA’s ability to turn island users into island stewards is why islands visited by members tend to be in better shape than those left completely alone. Among its many recognitions, friends of the Trail were thrilled when it was deemed one of the “50 Best American Adventures” by National Geographic Adventure Magazine.
