Visitors could search for events and campaigns and download handy trail maps, said chairman Pam Warhurst. Another new feature gave forest camping and log-cabin holiday details.

"We were pleased with the success of the iPhone launch last year; it has been rated as one of the top 500 apps by The Sunday Times," she said.

Existing Forest Xplorer features include a tree identifier, photo gallery and 3D tree illustrations. Users can identify trees using bark, seed or leafs within a few clicks.

Forest Xplorer has details on the top 37 Forestry Commission sites in England and can be downloaded from iTunes store and Android Market Place or visit www.forestry.gov.uk/mobileapp
