Exploring forest app

AN award-winning mobile app which offers a guide to Sherwood Pines Forest Park and other Forestry Commission sites is now available on android phones.

The Forest Xplorer is described as the ultimate guide to the nation’s forests and with its event finder people can keep in touch with what is happening in their nearest wood.

Visitors are also able to download trail maps to find their way around the forest.

Pam Warhurst, Forestry Commission chairman, said: “We have been so pleased with the success of the app and since its launch on iPhone last year, it has been rated as one of the top 500 apps in The Sunday Times.”

Forest Xplorer can be downloaded from the iTunes store and the Android Market Place. For more information visit www.forestry.gov.uk/mobileapp
