Privacy & Battery Concerns
Obviously, this app needs permission to use your phone's GPS location facilities. Apple wisely allows three settings for this: Always, While Running, & Never. The Always setting allows an app to use location services while you are not actually using the app; this allows an app to keep a record of your movements and it also lets the app have your location faster when you do invoke it. But that does raise privacy issues and it does run down your phone's battery. As a result, I generally prefer to use the While Running option for most apps.
This MotionX app will not accept the While Running option. It insists on Always or nothing. I'm not willing to give it Always permission, so it's nothing... which makes this app non-functional.
One cool thing about this app is your can tap the button to center your location and tap it again so it orients the map correctly when you walk just like if your driving a car.
I think this is one of the best. I use both this one and GPS Kit by Garafa. There is also an app called track editor which is also by Garafa. This app will allow you to import tracks so you can merge two tracks together and then export it back to your apps. Very cool
Not really liking the new look. Feels kinda cheap video game like. The spinning world looks way more vivid and is now hugely distracting. Wish there was a way to go back to non fluorescent color scheme. Still a stabile app and typically the go to map app for me. That won't change, but I'm not as satisfied with the app. Downgraded from 5 to 4 due to layout and overall look. Functionality still a 5.
