Smartphone application helps visitors find Rainforest


From staff reports

Ever wanted to know a little bit more about the exhibits at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo? Wondered what’s the best way to get from the Rainforest to the Australian Adventure?

The zoo now offers a smartphone application that allows users to navigate the zoo and learn more about the exhibits. The zoo also hopes the use of the smartphone app can cut down map consumption.

In addition to more information, the app allows users to easily locate concession stands and restrooms, and to find out about upcoming events and promotions.

The zoo app is available for the iPhone and it’s free in the Apple iTunes store.

The zoo said an Android and Blackberry version will be available soon.

The Cleveland Metroparks system includes the Hinckley Reservation in Hinckley Township. For more on the zoo, and Hinckley Reservation, visit
