Love them or hate them our lives are dominated by mobile phones. Mobile users spend 88% of time on mobile apps and just 12% of the time on mobile websites. Great apps focus on doing a specific job incredibly well, and our focus at Capra is providing great information for outdoor adventures.
Capra uses the same map technology (Mapbox) as the world's best outdoor recreation apps like Gaia, AllTrails and Strava. Our maps have rich terrain detail and work superbly offline.
We then make it easy for creators to add specific information to these maps so that users have all the info they need.
Our website maps link directly to the app version via QR code and when viewed on mobile phones provide a link to the app automatically.
GPX file download for uploading to watches and other navigation devices.
Sign up for route or collection specific alerts sent by the team who created the info. Great to keep informed of any last minute changes.
Easy to share the info with friends and family.
Bookmarking for quick access on the Bookmarks screen.
What can you expect out there? Easy to understand graphics provide a great overview of additional info that helps people prepare accordingly.
Having a great day out is about more than a line on a map. It can be as simple as pinpointing parking, bathrooms, cafes and pubs.
People love Capra because all this info can link to external websites for more details and be bookmarked beforehand for planning ahead.
Since day one we've always described Capra as helping people explore with confidence and app users can head out knowing that our maps work superbly in areas without coverage.
App users can download maps before heading out for offline confidence. Even without downloading terrain and pin details are automatically cached for areas with poor connectivity.
Offline maps are easy to access quickly with numb fingers and tired eyesight. when they're likely needed most
A staple function of great hiking apps, the ability to quickly grab coordinates and share the details with other people is a must have feature if recommending an app as part of mandatory gear or helping people explore your local area.
GPS tracking will always increase battery usage but modern apps manage battery life efficiently. Capra can be put into flight mode with cached maps enabling users to put the app away confident that when they need it later it's hasn't killed the phone.
