Phone App Good, Website Terrible
I got this app to try using my phone's GPS more effectively while hiking. The app works quite well overall, the only thing I've really noticed is that the compass is way off. It doesn't even seem to agree with the phone compass, so I don't know how it's getting its info. Track recording functions work well also and even though I didn't imagine using this feature much I actually do quite a bit. Not sure how accurate it really is, but that would be the fault of the phone's GPS, not the app.
My real problem is the website. The website would be an amazing tool, a way to organize and plan trips and then have them appear on the phone, except that the website is nearly unusable. It loads incredibly slowly, freezes constantly, and is very limited in the ways you can edit and work with routes that you create. Unfortunately it seems to be easier to create routes on my iPad than on my computer. Shame.
For $20 I'm not disappointed and perhaps a user-friendly and effective website is simply too much to ask at this price point. I'd love to see the company work on the website some and I think they would then have a truly outstanding product.
Very good topo navigation app
I've been using my iPhone to navigate in the woods for years. Over time I've used a dozen apps. So far this is the best. It's feature rich and the developers are continuously improving on the app's already solid foundation. I like that I can easily plan a trip on my iPad and the track automatically syncs to my iPhone. Tracks are easily recorded, imported from other sources and easily followed. I like the option of multiple free map sources so that you can choose the best one for the area you're going to. I also like that the trip statistics are updated in real time so you know how far you've gone and the pace you're keeping.
Perfect if not for...
The inability to create reports/graphs that compile stats across tracks. There is also a waypoint label bug on iPhone 6 (w/o Touch 3D). Mistakenly tapping a waypoint on a folder map to get to its label and info (which isn't supported), then going to the Main Map and repeating will flash the label popup so quickly the waypoint info can't be retrieved. The app must then be exited before the Main Map's waypoint labels can be tapped. Pretty annoying in general that folder map waypoints can't be tapped for info via the label popup.
