Great mapping app, but can be better.

I like that it’s lightweight on battery consumption. It’s easy to start tracking and adding points. The UI is clean and simple. I like that the save folder is accessible from the Files app. Two things that I’d like to see though: 1) like someone else mentioned, a confirmation when you swipe left to delete an entry would be good. Right now, it’s too easy to accidentally delete files. 2) I would like the ability to cache an entire defined area (including all zoom levels) by drawing a box around it. Right now, you gotta do a lot of panning and zooming and hoping that you’ve downloaded the areas that you need. Other than those two points, this is my favorite mapping app.

Perfect for geotagging my photos

I have become OCD about geotagging my photos in the past decade. I started with a GPS tracker (clunky). I moved on to using my iPhone when I wasn’t somewhere outside civilization (which is all the time now). I’ve paid for apps but they sometimes were abandoned or began pestering me with ads. I fell for the “Free to download!” qualifier not realizing they were limited. I recently tried this app out. It worked. I don’t need a lot of extra features. I just need an app that can track accurately. It should just start up and begin tracking with a tap. Naming a trip is nice but not necessary. It should export a GPX file. On those expectations this app is perfect. No bloating. The worst I can say is it drains the battery (but all tracking apps do that). This is my go-to app now.

Great open source project

This is a nicely made app having all the essential features, without annoying ads. I understand it takes time and effort maintaining open source project, but I suggest just a few improvements that I am looking forward to in the future update: 1, able to change date/time format for default file name. The default date format is dd-mmm-yyyy on on my iphone, so all the files are sorted day, it is hard to search through files. 2, better add a conformation window when deleting files, right now it is just too easy to delete file by mistake.
