National Geographic National Parks App

Band of Outsiders' 60-hour show, radioactive pottery, the iPad's fifth wall and more in our weekly look at the web

Turning their breathtaking photos digital, National Geographic has released an application that is a virtual National Park guidebook to 20 of America’s most-visited parks. The app is loaded with must-sees, local time and weather, a GPS-powered global map, and, of course, Facebook, Twitter, and email integration. The free app makes each park guide available for $1 each.
