Detroit Zoo offers iPhone application for visitors

The Detroit Zoo has launched an iPhone app to help them navigate their way through.

Here are a few of the features:

• A GPS-enabled map displaying a visitor’s location, and a “Friend
Finder” feature allowing users to connect with friends at the zoo.


A “near me” feature that lists all of the Zoo’s habitats and
attractions as well as the locations of restrooms, concession stands and
gift shops in close proximity to the visitor’s location.

• A “today” button with an updated list of the day’s activities, animal
feedings, zookeeper talks and animal enrichment activities, allowing
visitors to create a personalized schedule and identify each item on an
interactive map.

• An “animals” button that provides photos and
facts about the Zoo’s residents.
