• Tap and hold the map to quickly route between waypoints and POIs.
• Did Footpath snap to the wrong roads? Trace over the incorrect segment to edit, or use the eraser tool.
• Turn off snap to roads (magnet icon) and zoom in to manually trace the map. (Try switching to a satellite layer).

Extremely useful app for creating your own custom made drawn routes for driving, walking, or biking. My favorite feature about this app is not having to look at my phone's screen at all - unlike a traditional GPS app. This app has a very well-made GPS talking feature. I will continue to pay the premium. Thank you for the trial and for creating this. My only real complaint is that I'm unable to use the GPS when turning off my phone's screen but maybe that is an issue with my particular device.

I LOVE THIS APP. I hate that the maps are not up-to-date though!!! Map My Run has up-to-date maps, but it does not have the features that I like with Footpath. Without up-to-date maps I cannot calculate my run distances very well when planning a new route. I live in an area with a lot of new construction so the map issue is a huge frustration. But I do like that I can make a new route on my phone and It is easy to create one. My favorite feature is the voice directions during my run.

Pros: Nice interface for route planning IMO. Cons: Can't navigate w/o "elite" version. Can't save or track route, can't even count steps or mileage without an account - too much dependence on the cloud in general for my tastes. This version uses 25MB. Not bad, but most valuable features are unavailable. Map data depicts lakes/ponds in my neighborhood that do not exist. I'm not willing to waste time and money to sign up for account and subscription to try.
