Good app, missing key information. This is a great app for walking. I've just installed it and found several walks nearby that I did not know about. I've also seen several walks nearby that are not on the map. I presume the app is still growing. It is certainly with the £1.99. The reason I have given this only 4 stars is because I think the walks are missing crucial information. What I would like to see added to every walk is: - Estimated completion time - Dog friendly (yes/no/partially) - Child friendly - Free parking or what the parking charges are Not written within the text descriptions, but as key points like the difficulty boots and the star rating. With that this would be a 5 star app.
I had this app for i-phone and it was brilliant. The walks are bang on point to point to and easy to follow. By far my best app purchase if you like walking. Just got this for android and after a bad start with the loading it was resolved within a few hours. The moderator are brilliant and will sort your problems ASAP so be assured that you £1.99 is money well spent
Great idea to combine route choice & GPS mapping in one app. The single route I have used so far had good written directions. The GPS route gets downloaded for offline use but not the maps so if like me you disable mobile data all you see is a blue location marker and a red route without context. Resorted to checking the GPS at every junction to avoid unknowingly going off route. EDIT - Thanks for clarifying that, for my second route I made a point of entering map mode while still at home. Sure enough the map tiles were available throughout the entire walk despite disabled mobile data.
So so. This is the first app I've ever actually paid for. I decided on this one as we are currently in Ambleside in the Lake District and was hoping to see plenty of walks via the app. Disappointingly, there were 11 on this app in the whole area, mainly tough walks which were unsuitable for both myself and my wife. I was expecting a whole catalogue of walks, especially in the Lakes of all places, and with having to purchase the app! Very disappointed.
Took the app out today for a trial run. worked really well recording the walk, setting way-points etc. What would be really good would be the ability to somehow record voice messages from within the tracking capability so that short reminders, detailed directions, a particular note etc. could be remembered for when the walk is uploaded and text added.
Great idea but a little clunky.
