Ratings and Reviews
Wonderful I'll be using the app for my walk!
Hopefully I can complete the whole trail.
Inaccessible for the blind.
Apart from the Settings and the Search Input field no useful information was available to me as a blind user of this App. I thought I might locate the nearest access point from my location or a selection from which to choose and perhaps there is a graphical indication but nothing useful to me. The Google White Pages that opened did list my local post-office Library and Police station in text that could be read by Voice Over.
Very disappointing to be excluded.
Watch Battery life
This thing is constantly running in the background and there is no way to turn it off. Sucking my battery life even when I am doing nothing but sitting on my Chow at home. Needs to have a toggle in the "background app refresh" area to turn that off when the user is at work and not using it.
Also, the information on the trail is lacking as far as I am concerned. It shows the map and the line but information about walking times and terrain is missing- maybe they think they are making some kind of user updated app, but the bare minimum is not there.
