Good idea, but needs more work. The map constantly zooms around when trying to find a route. You can't rewind commentary if you want to revisit something or realise you are looking at the wrong thing. If you accidentally come out of the walk you are doing there's no easy way back in. Plus some typos which can easily be corrected. Good idea, but I spent a lot of time trying to get back into the walk rather than enjoying the walk.

Thank you for your appraisal. Can you please write to me using the 'contact' on our website, to share which route did you use? Please note that not all the routes are TrailTale's, but are hosted by us. Thank you.

Really like this app, it provides simple, well paced but interesting walks. The stuff it shows you are away from the more obvious tourist parts which I love. The app has a few hiccups here and there but they're easy to get over. It would be great to have an option for creating personal walk, an extension to the existing "Explore" feature, but allowing you to select a list of points and "follow" it similar to the official walks. Keep up the great work!!
