This app has become my go to app for mountain biking, but it's very clunky in some ways. In general, the app has a good selection of trails, but trail availability for ebikes is rarely accurate. Some user contributed data I wish just wasn't there because it's untrustworthy (like trail direction). The biggest annoyance is with the UI. The settings are an absolute disaster and some settings can't be accessed from the app. It also quit syncing with Strava despite trying to relink the accounts.

The app has been good for exploring riding options in unfamiliar places. Sad to say it is time to move on. I understand the need to pay for development of apps, but the subscription model with automated renewal payments is a non-starter and a red-flag. Fees can change anytime without notice. Automatic renewal is at higher fee with no way to get a refund and no obvious way to cancel. I am not saying TF does this, but a risk. I'd pay $5 for 1 month of access without automated renewal.

After years of using Trailforks the app is now very glitchy and barely functioning anymore. While recording elapsed time and distance will just freeze and do nothing. Then halfway through riding it stopped tracking my location when the phone wasn't unlocked. Now my log is just a bunch of straight lines between random points. Definitely won't be subscribing again if the basics don't even work.... Update: reinstalled app fresh. Can't even download a map region, errors every time. 100% unusable.
