GaiaGPS just gets better and better!
Version 10.5 is incredible, and I recommend GaiaGPS without reservation. The record track, pause track, finish track, resume track are now intuitive and user friendly. The ability to choose mapping layers, record, and email tracks to friends including trip data (distance, speed, elevation gain and loss) plus gpx & .kml files, and a whole host of other features now make this an incredibly powerful and useful mapping app. In addition, it is being actively supported and updated very very frequently. One can display a previous trip on the map and follow it in real time. Or one can import a friend's .kml file and display it and follow it in the same way in real time. Saved tracks can now be placed in folders and synced to your gaiaGPS cloud account. Too many other useful features to list. This is the mapping app I recommend to backpackers, equestrians, mountain bikers, and hikers without any reservation whatsoever. It is a steal at $20. (I actually pay the additional extra $40 per year for Pro level, but be honest I am doing that more as a show of support for the wonderful job they are doing than the few additional features I get as a result. Truth is you'll 99% of the features, which includes all the important ones, when you purchase the $20 app.)
Best in Class
This is without a doubt the very best hiking app ever created in the history of the planet. Believe me, I've bought every one, and tried every one extensively. I know this sounds like I am a developer pushing this app, but no, I am an actual end-user and I can't say enough great things about this app once you really learn to know it. Plus developer support is top notch as well. This app has turned my iPhone 6S into an extremely useful tool. I would venture to say that as long as you have battery power it is darn near impossible to get lost with this app. It cost $20, it might seem a little pricey compared to some, but seeing as I use this thing every single day, I should probably send the developers beer money.
Best app, best developers
There are other apps on my phone I use more frequently than Gaia, but there is not one that I hold in higher esteem. It does everything I ask of it (and more), and every release only enhances my appreciation for it. While it doesn't yet do every trivial task I might desire, it does everything I truly need. And every time I've had a problem or question, the developers have taken the time to address the matter (whether to resolve the issue or to explain why it cannot presently be resolved). The app and its developers are golden. I look forward to using Gaia (and Gaia Green) for years to come.
