    Great app, it just doesn't work that well. Crashes and stops tracking pretty regularly, is SUPER slow sometimes, and eats a ton of battery. If it was cheap or free that would be fine, but for $20 that's pretty disappointing.

    I think IOS is their primary platform and Android is just an afterthought. One problem is incomplete displays of maps and leftover waypoints being shown in a map - there is no refresh button to redraw the map, so the only way to clean up the display is to kill and restart the app. But of course then you lose your current tracking. Also the back button is inconsistent - you often get thrown out

    Sometimes crashes on N5 when going back into the map from another app.

    The one really bad feature is that when it's tracking, its status is shown in black on a gray background. Outside it's not possible to read it. For example, it might say "paused", but you can't read it. So you think it's recording your track, but it's not.

    Just getting used to it but it has a few maps that really shows the trails MUCH better than competitors. Time will tell how good it is at other things but just the high quality maps make it well worth giving it a try!
