The project was a collaborative effort between app developer Designsensory, the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development and trail committees made up of tourism entities on each trail.
Each app is designed to enrich the experience for travelers on the individual trails. Each trail offers experiences designed to showcase tourism’s major sites as well as off the beaten path attractions, which are some of Tennessee’s greatest assets.
Equipping travelers with a fully customized trail experience, the apps offer specific points of interest and social media sharing options.
Additional features include: view points of interest as a list, tiles or in a map format, favorite points of interest to create a custom trail itinerary, share points of interest on Facebook, check-in to points of interest or upload a photo, view points of interest by category and see how many points of interest are included in each category, filter points of interest by interest category including “What’s Nearby,” “Food & Wine,” Nature & Outdoors,” “Attractions,” “Sports & Rec,” “Civil War,” “History & Heritage,” “Agritourism” or “Music & Arts,” view “Did You Knows?” along the trail for interesting facts about the trail’s points of interest, click on a point of interest to read a full description, view photos and find contact information, find events along the trail throughout the year, click on the trail playlist to enjoy trail related tunes through Pandora.
