Woodstock, VT (July 18, 2013) –Many of us experience our happiest moments in the great outdoors, and sharing these experiences with others who have the same passions can be as rewarding as the adventures themselves. But rarely have mobile phones been considered a practical tool for this – until now. Meet Yonder: the new community-based iPhone app, your gateway to discovering, inspiring and sharing outdoor adventures near or far, extreme or tranquil.
Yonder is groundbreaking. It is a community developed specifically for outdoor enthusiasts and athletes to discover and share outdoor experiences from around the world. Yonder makes it easy to find great outdoor destinations, track your adventure with geo-tagged video and images, follow other users, and share experiences with the Yonder community and other social networks.
“The Yonder community, though vast in its expression of how it interacts with the natural world, is commonly linked by an appreciation – even a need – for the outdoor experience,” said Justine Riegel, Marketing Manager for Yonder. “This is the Yonder niche. The Yonder app is a way for people to discover, inspire and share their adventures with other outdoor enthusiasts without the distraction of someone’s latest latté, or baby picture. From mountain biking to a leisurely group hike, our goal is for Yonder to inspire people to get outside and have a richer, more informed experience when they do.”
Combining the convenience of mobile location-based content, with the appeal of social sharing, Yonder is a new free app for iPhone users.
Yonder user @citystrokes says, “Yonder’s greatest attribute is it having been developed specifically for the outdoors enthusiast…I am without a doubt going to incorporate the use of Yonder into my outdoor activities.”
