If you’re into camping, Camper’s Helper is an app you won’t want to be without.
Developed by Gerard Guerin, it’s designed to aid adventurers in planning out their wilderness explorations.
Since it works both with and without internet access it can provide valuable info when and where it’s needed, even where you go to get away from it all.
As indicated by its name, Camper’s Helper is an app made to help out campers. Specifically speaking, this app provides users with valuable information about helpful resources in their areas.
For instance, Camper’s Helper makes use of your iOS device’s GPS system to bring you listings and locations of everything that you as a camper might need.
This covers everything from nearby campgrounds to propane refill stations. Featuring over 55,000 different location references, this app is useful for campers both in the United States and in Canada.
Languages currently featured in Camper’s Helper include English, French, and Spanish. Using Camper’s Helper is fairly straightforward, and anyone who is familiar with using Google Maps’ “search/nearby” function will have no problem using this app.
However, at the same time, it seems that much of the information provided in this app is already available in other more popular map/location-service apps.
Appearance and Layout:
As mentioned earlier, Camper’s Helper is a very easy to use app, and its layout is responsible for a large part of this ease of use.
This app features a fairly simplistic design that is appropriate for a map-focused app of its kind; only necessary information is included on the screen, and finding the services you’re seeking in the app is simple to do.
In-app icons are charming and easy to understand, and all fonts are easily readable on a small screen.
Camper’s Helper is currently available for free through the iTunes Store.
However, any users who wish to fully utilize all of the app’s abilities will have to pay $9.95 to upgrade to the “premium” version of the app.
This version allows users to enjoy additional search categories, a larger search zone, and an in-app data update at least twice per year.
While this app is well designed, it seems that $10 is a steep price to pay for a small increase in ease in locating information that is already fairly readily available elsewhere.
Overall, while the free version of Camper’s Helper is a good value, we encourage the developer to rethink the monitization plan for this app since the premium version doesn’t seem to be really worth its price.
Camper’s Helper requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
