Great idea, poor execution The app has quite a cool concept. It allows you to explore areas you didn't even know were there. However, it works maybe 1/4 of the time. It consistently misses my driving unless I leave the phone on. Whenever I lock the phone, it doesn't log any of my movements or does sporadically. Would love to see this app work correctly, because it makes me far more aware of areas I've never noticed in places I've lived for years.
Good app, needs file exporting. We need the ability to export our files. We can only import GPX but not export. I am about to switch to a new phone when my contract is up and I have no ability to transfer my explored areas to my new phone. I've spent lots of time exploring with this app, but if there's no way to transfer my already explored areas, then I've wasted my time. If anyone's figured out a way to this I'd like to know. I emailed the developer but got no response.
App is great but... This app does not track properly. If I turn the screen off then it stops using gps and I will have large gaps in between the travelled parts. I used it on an s3.
So cool Awesome, awesome app. Would love to see a setting available to adjust how big of a circle is revealed, but otherwise great. Wish it sucked up less battery, but that's not the fault of the app, it's just because of the GPS.
This app has so much potential. This app could have been the Android equivalent to Fog of World on the iPhone, but it has too many problems that will never be worked out. It has been close to two years since the app was last updated. The export function crashes the app every time so you can't get your data out. If this app were to get an update to include something that would quantify just how much of the world you'd seen, I would love this. But as of right now this app just looks like it was a test for a first time developer.
Good but immature This has lots of potential. I got it as an alternative for fog of world on iOs. It's much plainer than that game but very much more performance efficient. Good job!
