AANRmobile: The Official AANR Android App

AANRmobile is the official Android App of the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) and it upholds the association’s principles and standards. AANR is about social family nude recreation in appropriate settings. Only nudist clubs and resorts that are affiliated with AANR are included in the Club Directory in this App.

The American Association for Nude Recreation is the largest, most long-established organization of its kind in North America. With roots dating to 1931, it has grown from humble beginnings to an organization representing nearly 50,000 members and their families throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and beyond as well as over 260 nudist resorts and affiliates. AANR’s commitment to fostering wholesome, nurturing environments that promote body acceptance and respect for all persons has not changed. Members recognize the essential wholesomeness of the human body and that life is enhanced by the naturalness of social nudity.

AANR invites you to explore the world of social nudity in this App as well as on the website (http://www.AANR.com). AANRMobile includes:

  • a list of Frequently Asked Questions and their answers
  • an affiliated Club Directory
  • a listing of events across the continent
  • a news page that contains the most recent stories from the Alltogether Blog

The Club Directory lets you browse clubs alphabetically or by state (plus Canada and a few other countries). From the club detail view you can call the club from your phone, send them an email, link to their website and start navigating to their club.

If you are already a nudist, AANRMobile will help you find events as you travel and close to home. If you are not yet a nudist, AANRMobile will help you learn about the enjoyment and benefits of nudism.

AANR-East App

By Steven Stoller, AANR-East webmaster and app developer

I am excited to announce the availability of the new AANR-East Android phone app on Google Play.

You can click on the screenshots here to enlarge them before downloading or if you are curious and do not have an Android smartphone.

The following modules appear in our Android app:

1) Who are We?

Identifies all the AANR Regions

2) Our clubs

Lists each club affiliate’s name, city, state, phone (if available), and email (if available)

3) Club map (selected clubs)

Plots each club on an embedded Google map.  Note that since some landed clubs do not want their exact location plotted, they are excluded from the map.

4) Calendar

Lists upcoming events.

5) Newsletter

Displays previous issues of our “Speaking Naturally” newsletter with a link to subscribe right off of your Android smartphone.

6) Facebook

Displays the AANR-East Facebook page.

7) Twitter

Displays the AANR-East Twitter feed.

8) Selected landed club signs

Displays photos of signs of some of the clubs I have visited.  Additional submissions are welcome.  We are presently exploring how to include other photos on our app (e.g., obtaining proper permissions for photos of people, etc.).  At present, the app is configured so photos cannot be saved or shared.  According to its Terms of Service, Google does not allow nudity.

9) Video

Selected relevant YouTube videos.

10) Audio (except podcasts)

These are audio interviews which do not include dedicated audio podcast modules.

11) The Naturist Living Show (podcast)

Includes tens of excellent informative audio podcasts on various aspects of nudism and naturism (sponsored by Bare Oaks in Toronto, Ontario).

12) Nude news

This is a Google RSS feed which automatically displays news stories that match certain specified search terms.  We are presently looking into the option of including Nudist News stories as an RSS feed off of the Nudist News public page at http://www.aanr-east.com/t_pages.php?id=33.  (Our Web site also has a Nudist News page in the Members Lounge which incorporates news stories with more varied subjects and viewpoints.)

13) AANR’s Altogether blog

Blog entries by AANR National.

14) Become a volunteer

Prepopulates an email with questions to be answered by prospective volunteers.

15) Donate online

This page includes information on how to make donations to help defray our costs including the initial and recurring costs of the AANR-East Android app.  These costs are presently absorbed by the developer (me).

16) AANR-East office

Clicking on this link connects you by phone to the AANR-East office.

17) AANR-East.com

Clicking on this link transports you to the AANR-East Web site.

18) App tips

Includes various tips on how to use this phone app.

19) Contact Developer

Includes information on how to contact the developer (me) by phone or email.  The Web site link on this page transports you to my AANR-East Web site Webmaster profile page.  The Contact Developer page encourages app suggestions and offers assistance to affiliated clubs seeking to develop an Android phone app.

20) Similar apps

At present, clicking this link transports you to the My Nude World ($6.99) application download page on Google Play.  If you know of any clubs that have phone apps on Google Play (even if they are not in AANR-East), it would be appreciated if you can let me know so we can also list them.
