A few years ago we reviewed the first iOS version of the official American Association for Nude Recreation app. Recently a new version of the app was released on IOS. There are enough significant differences that bear reviewing a second time. The app is divided into four sections and an about page. We will examine each the sections and functionality. Home page The home page is nothing to write home about, it has no special functionality except to display the AANR mission and logo. FAQ The FAQ section includes twenty frequently asked questions with a info button to click to reveal the answer. The questions range from the mundane, “What are the characteristics of a AANR club?” “Do males get visibly excited?” and “Do people really play nude volleyball?” to more significant questions like “Is nude recreation legal?” “What about our kids?” and “What if we receive unwanted advances?” Despite adequate space for in depth responses the answers are only one or two sentences.

Guest blogger: Roy Snell follow @rodos1950 NUDIST COMPASS for Android Android application available from https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.thatbeyond.nudeco.beta Developers website: http://nudistcompass.com/ This app is a must for every active naturist/nudist. It is well designed application which works in conjunction with Google Maps and http://nakedplaces.net to provide an interactive map of naturist/nudist locations around the world. An invaluable tool for the naturist/nudist traveler and for anyone seeking naturist/nudist locations to visit. Currently there don’t appear to be any locations listed in Africa although the South African Naturist Federation lists several venues. The app is still in beta phase so there may a few malfunctions but I have not found any as yet. I will be recommending it to all my fellow naturists.

Naturist musician Ton Dou is on the leading edge and has produced iBare what seems to be the first ever app by a naturist musician.
