I have used this app for quite some time like it a lot! One factor it sets it above competing apps is, that you always see the time left on your planned route which gets updated as you progress. But: In the last two months, the app crashes all the time when I have a route selected to follow it. It might be an issue related to zooming and relying on offline maps. I wasn't able to pinpoint it. I use version 1.11.0 on a Pixel 7 pro with Android 13.

Great app for searching for hiking routes and following them. It provides altitude profiles and estimated walk times which update as you progress. Care is required as some trails we followed were almost non-existent. Usefully, it shows up trail closures. Currently, however, it crashes a lot - probably 15 times on a walk today. It does restart quickly so crashes were not hugely disruptive.

App was great until July. Since that update, it's unusable. There are huge lags when zooming/navigating. It's not possible to create routes anymore with those lags.
