Home Reviews Start Your Trip Into Nature With Borrego

Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is one of the greatest places to visit in California. It is a calm, serene place, great for settling down the body and mind. No wonder this place attracts 600,000 visitors every year. If you are planning for a trip to the largest state park in California, I hope this review will help you.


Borrego is a digital brochure that helps users explore the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. After a short welcome note, users can find seven articles indexed under topics such as Call of the Desert, the Endangered Bighorn and Tips for Visiting the Park. The home screen of the app gives easy access to these neatly designed brochures.

This app has some exclusive hi-res images one can’t find anywhere in the Internet and it also has audio files. These images, essays and audio files show the hard work of the developers and add value to the app. I think this kind of effort is needed to make a product special. With a lot of pictures, audio files, maps and other resources, this digital park brochure is understandably a bulky one (143 MB) and it takes time to download. Borrego is compatible with iPads running iOS 4.2 or later. This app can be used only in landscape orientation.

Borrego Desert State Park offers breathtaking and mesmerizing scenery for visitors while the Borrego app can be the virtual guide for those who are planning to visit there. However, I don’t understand the reason why this paid app comes with ads. Apart from this small issue, I think Borrego would be a great companion for the visitors of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. I hope this app will make a few users to visit this park.
