Should defiantly get it for first timers!!
They did a great job with this app. I've backpacked the whole section for the first time, and it helped me to have an idea where I was exactly on the map, critical, when you are running short on water or towards the end of the day not knowing how long you have until the next campground/shelter. Sometimes that random camping spot in the woods not too far away from the trail..serves it's purpose...
Works Great. Use it on every AT Hike
08-20-15 Update: The mileage feature is improved and includes terrain profile. I just couldn't find it. You have to tap on the path, save, then tap "i " to view detail. Couple more taps but improved info. iPad version now as well.
08-16-15 Update. New version missing the point to point mileage feature. Hoping the developers can address ASAP.
As good as, actually better, than the paper maps and they are quite good. Great features and works flawlessly. No noticeable battery drain. I show it to other hikers all the time. Don't know why there aren't more reviews.
