- Trail Tracker is compatible with all iOS devices running iOS 7.0 or higher, but the GPS features in the app require a GPS unit. You should make sure that your device has GPS capabilities before downloading the app, as we cannot issue refunds. Please do not hesitate to contact support at email@example.com if you have any questions.
- While continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life, Trail Tracker can track for more than 6 hours without recharging.
What's New in Version 3.50
Trail Tracker v3.50 fixes a bug in iOS 8 preventing users from changing the 'Background App Refresh' setting in the Settings app.
THE Very Best!!!
I have tried several similar purpose apps. This is definitely the most reliable, accurate, capable, and easy to use. The app staff are also extremely responsive to questions and requests. I usually hike at least a dozen miles per week, but primarily use this for planning, laying out, and measuring new trails for a trail club. Never dropping signal, pinpoint accuracy, ability to add maps into view with your current location, and export capabilities are my favorite facets. I also love how you can enlarge the view and display multiple tracks into one, color coded map! With each upgrade it continues to surpass my expectations. I have almost 100 tracks now. I wish that I could search them some way. I have never has battery issues during use, but I use it on an iPad, not a phone.
Very nice app!
I really enjoyed using this app! I ended up paying for it after the trial. With that being said, I agree with most people that the trial is a bit of a sham. I believe a better way to do a trial is to have a full version of the app, but eliminate the save and share capabilities.
One thing that I would change within the app, would be to get rid of the slider bars for adjusting numerical values, and go with the number wheels, like in Apple's alarm clock, and numerous other apps. The slider bars are archaic and an absolute pain to get the value you want (especially when there is a wide range of values), because it is too touchy. It wouldn't be so bad if they had stop points along the slider.
At any rate, I really like the app, and experienced no crashing (yet), nor did I find it hard to operate. I'm not sure what some of these people are complaining about.
As long as the dev continues to develop the app, by making it better, I will continue to use it. Thanks!

Does the job but kills your battery
This app does the job of tracking a trail and letting you review the trip later. Easy to use.
But every time you finish using it you have to go in and manually quit the app, or else it will keep running in the background and will kill your battery.
Also this is not a free app. It is a free trial which works for a couple of weeks and then stops unless you pay. The paid app is only $1.99, which would be a good price if it didn’t kill your battery. But this is not a free app. This doesn’t really affect the app itself but I personally hate when companies mislead like this.
