Create Mobile Interpretive Tour and Wayfinding Apps for the National Park Service

OnCell has given us the opportunity to connect more people with Virgin Islands National Park. Our app is a 'ranger-in-your-pocket" experience that helps guide visitors, engage youth and inform locals about their park in real-time. We love OnCell for making it possible for our little organization to think big in the 21st Century!

Customer App Examples

NPS Saratoga National Historic Park

Stillwater, New York

Saratoga National Historic Park partnered with OnCell to launch their newly redesigned mobile tour app. Our teams worked closely together to create a custom branded app to achieve the iconic National Park Service look and meet their strict design standards. The self-guided audio tour serves to educate visitors about the pivotal 1777 Battles of Saratoga during the American Revolutionary War.

The app features over 30 points of interest, including images and an audio tour for the battlefield. An additional hiking trail tour provides an immersive soundscape with two distinct paths, one for adults and a student-narrated one for children. Visitors can discover points of interest with location aware GeoAlerts and GPS-enabled maps.
