PARKS CANADA – NA­TIONAL APP

To cel­e­brate the 150th an­niver­sary of Con­fed­er­a­tion, the Cana­dian Gov­ern­ment is of­fer­ing free ad­mis­sion to all Parks Canada places in 2017, and this NEW app is one way that Parks Canada is pro­vid­ing vis­i­tors with ex­cep­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties to con­nect with Canada’s iconic des­ti­na­tions this year and be­yond. The new Parks Canada app pro­vides vis­i­tors with the in­for­ma­tion and re­sources they need to plan their visit and dis­cover breath­tak­ing lo­ca­tions, in­clud­ing hid­den gems, and other unique and mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ences at na­tional parks, his­toric sites and marine con­ser­va­tion ar­eas. Vis­i­tors can share their ex­pe­ri­ences on so­cial me­dia and use fun and in­ter­ac­tive Parks Canada-themed photo-fil­ters ac­ti­vated by their smart­phone GPS when they ar­rive at one of Parks Canada’s many des­ti­na­tions. There is also de­tailed in­for­ma­tion on Parks Canada places, tips on how to pre­pare for a visit, and in­ter­ac­tive maps. Vis­i­tors can even find out about hun­dreds of events planned for 2017 all across the coun­try.

GOOGLE MAPS

Most of us al­ready have this on our de­vices and have used it to get from point A to point B, but it re­ally does so much more. You can: • Beat traf­fic with real-time ETAs and traf­fic con­di­tions • Save time with au­to­matic re-rout­ing based on live traf­fic, in­ci­dents, and road clo­sures • Don’t miss a turn or exit with lane guid­ance • Find pit stops along your route like gas sta­tions and cof­fee spots • Find top-rated restau­rants and lo­cal busi­nesses, wher­ever you are • De­cide on the best places to go with re­views, rat­ings, and pic­tures of foods and in­te­ri­ors • Plan your visit and see menus, make reser­va­tions, and find when places are typ­i­cally busiest • Help others dis­cover the best places by shar­ing re­views, pho­tos and more • Save places you want to or of­ten visit, and quickly find them later from any com­puter or de­vice Google Maps is sup­ported in over 220 coun­tries and you can use the voice guide to tell you when to turn off at the next ice cream store. This Mos­quito re­pel­lent pre­vents you from get­ting bit­ten by mos­qui­toes and some other nasty bugs. ANTI MOS­QUITO - SONIC REPELLER The ap­pli­ca­tion emits a very unique high fre­quency sound (ul­tra sound) that the in­sects dis­like. The pitch of the sound is so high that most hu­mans will not no­tice any­thing. Keep the ap­pli­ca­tion close to you and en­joy the out­doors with­out bites. The app does not guar­an­tee a 100% pro­tec­tion as there are over 3500 known mos­quito species in the world and they all re­act slightly dif­fer­ent to the re­pel­lent. Use the pitch se­lec­tor to find op­ti­mal re­pelling fre­quency for the mos­qui­toes in your re­gion.
