What an upgrade!

Every time I wished the app would do X or Y it magically appears in the next update. I wanted it to be easier to switch between map upright / turn to my direction. Before you had the go into the settings each time, then they changed it to a simple button press on the location button. The latest update features a ‘snap to footpath/bridalway/trail’ feature which is unbelievably handy and I imagine been technically hard to implement, they even had the foresight to make this easily activated/deactivated as you’re plotting a route (which has also been made much easier but pressing and holding to add waypoints rather than having to click add each time). Basically the dev team should be congratulated on their brilliant focus on an excellent user experience. So often app developers lose sight of what’s needed to make apps good to use but these guys are obviously very focussed on the end user. Thank you.

Great app!

This app is fantastic! It just keeps getting better! I’ve been using it since my ip3gs. Im currently using an ip8 + iwatch S3 and they both communicate reliably especially when following a route via this app. As you can imagine, it mirrors a mini map at the zoom level thats on your phone. You can send/download Routes to follow on the watch thats planned on your phone. It buzzes/beeps on your wrist at a waypoint or wandering off route. You can also start/stop recording tracks from the watch too which makes things a bit more convenient.
Overall, i think the ViewRanger app is a great companion for walking and hiking. I have ViewRanger on all my devices including my iPad which is what i plot my routes on. The bigger screen makes it easier. Finish, synchronise to your phone, go walking! Its easy to plot and follow routes. Its like having a little pocket assistant.
Its worth the money if you like exploring.

An essential App for hiking.

Not wanting the added expense of purchasing a separate GPS unit, this App provides ease of use coupled with a comprehensive system that enables offline/online usage. Proven a life saver when taken a wrong turn when walking in hills or woods but I’ve only tended to use as a backup alongside a physical OS map. The option to get the more detailed terrain specific area maps is handy for research/planning. The access to both national organisation’s and individual walks through the community link is extremely useful, especially when walking in a new location. Not having used the Skyline function yet I cannot provide an accurate assessment of it, from what I’ve looked into though, it would be beneficial for making real time adjustments to a route to circumvent difficulties. Overall, this is a excellent App that works well with the iOS on both the SE (during) & iPad (pre & post analysis). Definite value for money.
