Eye-Opener


By Amy Leinbach Marquis


Fotopedia’s new app for the iPhone and iPad, “National Parks: Our Treasured Lands,” features a stunning collection of images by photographer Quang-Tuan Luong—the first person to photograph each of America’s 58 national parks with a large-format camera. Every photo includes a short caption, extensive information about the park, its location on Google Maps, and a link to the Park Service website. Other features allow users to share images on Twitter and Facebook, save photos as wallpaper, purchase prints, and designate favorites. And if the flick of a finger proves too exhausting for navigating all 3,000 photos, there’s always the automatic slideshow setting. The app, which requires an internet connection, costs $4.99, and is available at www.fotopedia.com/ios/national_parks.
