Refuses to save progress along path on iPhone
Ok if you want to find out nearest access point ( which is hardly rocket science)but unlike every other GPS app seems incapable of storing walk you've done . Not worth the storage on phone Given their funding sources they should sort this out.
Will not carry on from iPhone to iPhone
Was a good app until you're old iPhone decides not too work any more so you back up to iCloud and this app will forget the 100 miles you've already walked. Not a good app if you don't have an iPhone 3GS, 4 , 4s, 5, 5s 6, 6plus, 6s, 6s plus or SE as these iPhones may not last the next 60 years, or however you have left until you are no longer able to walk the Wales coast path
My big bugbear with this app, which unfortunately seems common among apps of this type, is the method of calculating distance.
Distances always seem to be calculated on a point-to-point direct-line basis, bearing no resemblance to real-world conditions.
For example, the three nearest beaches to Llanelli shown by the app include Broughton on Gower, supposedly 6.33 miles away. The actual distance is nearer 20 miles ! It's only 6.33 miles away if you walk across the shifting sands of the Loughor Estuary (avoiding the twice-daily tides).
Another well-intentioned app spoiled by simple inaccuracy.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
