Very slow and bad data The app takes a very long time to load in fact it never did load my local trails. When I found a trail by searching it was listed as Beginner when this trail is actually black Diamond expert so that is potentially dangerous. Also the maps would not load once I found a trail. Trailforks is MUCH better.
Needs to make better use of maps. For travel planning it would be beneficial to have the trail list by state display on a map. Lots of great content on Singletrack, just challenging to get at it. Even their list of best trails in the world, is not mappable and only shows nearby city without state/province so finding a trail based on planned travel is arduous. MTB Project is so much better in this regard, but Singletrack has more content. If only I could use MTB Project app on Singletrack content. Every time I try to use it to locate trails in another area, I find it absolutely unusable. Works fine for locating trails near me which is fine if you don't travel to new areas.
Signup is totally lame. It doesn't tell you the username is taken until you enter all your signup information. Once you hit SUBMIT, it thinks about it for a while, then dumps all the info you entered with your thumbs and tells you "the user name or the email address is already taken". Really? And they don't even tell you which is taken--the email address or the username! So I tried a second time with a different username, and it dumped all my info again. Meanwhile, ads are scrolling by faster than a ticker tape. Uninstalling without even getting through signup. Lay-hay-hame!
Waste of time When they say "lite" they mean LIIIITE! the app has nothing on it except links to upgrade to other versions. I click on a link to a map of nearby trails and it says "upgrade to single tracks topo to view maps". Thanks for nothing. And I mean NOTHING. uninstalled.
Nothing useful No brands I'm interested in. No trails near me. Maybe meant just for US use?
Nice app Looks great has all the info I need so far gonna get a lot of use once the snow melts
