Submitted by on December 7, 2011 – 6:41 amNo Comment

With apps on every platform and new ones being created every day, there truly is an app for everything under the sun. Today, we’re offering our top five apps for the outdoor enthusiast.

Park MapsHikers and bikers rejoice: you can now get a map for every major park without having to carry them around in your pack. There aren’t a ton of extra features in this app, but coming in at only $0.99, it doesn’t need any.

Army SurvivalGranted, most individuals do not experience LOST in real life, but you can never be too sure. Army Survival offers tips on surviving in the wilderness including dangerous animal identification and ways to build a fire.

Wild Mushrooms of North America and EuropeMushrooms at the farmers market are expensive, and seeing them out on a camping trip may tempt you to pick a few up. Unfortunately, they can also be dangerous. Download this app for $1.99 to determine what is and isn’t appropriate to make your next tasty snack.

Motion-X GPS. You probably have Google Maps on your phone but did you know it  requires a signal in order to properly function? With spotty service in the woods, it’s best to buy this app for $2.99 and download your maps in advance.

GotoAID First AidFor $4.99, this app provides first aid information not only for you, but for your pets too. GotoAID offers over 400 topics to cover any first aid you may need while also offering disaster preparedness for before, during, and after a natural disaster.

These are our choices for best outdoor apps, but what do you use for a weekend in the woods? Leave us a comment below and let us know what apps you use for outdoor adventures.
