Was a great app when I first purchased
The original version of this app was great: design was functional but not real pretty but it worked. Since we went to the "pretty" interface I can't read the information and worse, since then it has not once got the distance right. Walking the same routes it used to track perfectly now it fails miserably. Says my 3 mile hike is 5 miles (in clear view of satellites).
I'm looking for an alternative because this is now no more use to me than a timer.
This app works perfectly almost all the time. About every 15-20th use it will stop and reset. I don't notice this until I have completed my walk. It is excellent in every regard with this one exception. I still use this app as it has the ability to manually enter the walk. I go to history and use the results from a previous walk. I would give it 5 stars were it not for this minor quirk.
Like others have stated, this app seems to have become more unreliable recently. Used to use it without many glitches. Now the distances are very inconsistent. All the data I've saved this week has gone on to the March calendar, even though it is May. When I go back to check the data the date is correct. Frustrating since it used to work well.
