The Nordic ski app I’ve been looking for

Great work on the app! I appreciate the track recording and other metrics. Works seamlessly with my Apple Watch and 100 times better than their poor excuse for a XC ski workout app. Easy to use. Might be nice to integrate a “pause workout” function, if you can make sure it doesn’t try to pause mid-workout like Apple’s does. Thanks!

Good but could be better

I like the app but something is off in my tracking. I did the same ski 3 days in a row and never get the same mileage. And it not even close ove a mile of variation. Also the elevation is way off I think it needs to take less readings. But I do recommend this app I just hope for some refinement.

Great app for tracking cross country workouts

Thanks for creating this app, it works great for tracking cross-country workouts.

The app also has very good integration with Apple Health and it even loads the route into Apple Health. It would be great if the workout distance could be also added to Apple Health, would that be possible going forward?

Thank again for creating a great app.
