    What a fantastic app! I use it everyday when I go out trail or track running. The app would be just perfect if the average, max and min climbing speeds were a free add-on. Hope it's possible and will be done very soon so I can unreservedly recommend it t

    I apologize to all the people I recommended this app too over the years. I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 and this app no longer works for my phone.

    I'm still finding my way around this brilliant app. But so far as helped in finding footpaths to follow on our walks. And the ability to overlay other users walks is great.

    Works as promised and allows for easy caching of maps offline. My one comment is the GUI could really use an overhaul to make the App more intuitive for recording and following tracks.
