Pretty good but needs more...
This is a good app that was a much needed mobile addition/extension of the very informative and useful NWHiker.com website. However, this app needs better filtering tools, specifically a geolocating function. Instead of and/or in addition to having to make all the filtering choices on the main page, how about showing a map with all the hike options. Or after you select all your options how about providing an option to view the results on a map in addition to the list view. The result list is great but w/out the option to see those results on a map view, you’re left going to each individual result to see where they are. I’ve used the web version of this app for many years as the information has always been excellent. This mobile app version is good but it could be great w/ some upgrades. Thx.
A very handy app
Love the maps and hike descriptions. Using it on my iPad. Wish it were available for my android phone.
It needs bookmarks. We heard about a hike, found it in the app and would like to bookmark it for later.
Also, it should be useful for navigation on the trail.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
