Latest update = a lot of value!

I’ve been using this app since The Outbound first hit the scene. As a busy mom of two with a family that likes to adventure on the weekends, it’s perfect for efficiently finding something to do that feels novel, accessible, and worth the time and energy. Living in the Bay Area there are many hidden gems and this app allows me to explore a place I’ve lived for well over a decade with fresh eyes each time. With this update the maps are much improved and include an interactive elevation component which is great when deciding how much to get into (aka mellow or intense hike). I love how streamlined it is and the ability to so easily filter adventures to curate a list that meets my needs.

Great app small problems

I found this app and used it yesterday and overall it is a great app. It did a super job of keeping me on trail and finding the trail head. When I went to submit a review of the trail it let me put in a heading but it wouldn’t pull up a keyboard for a review so I couldn’t leave the review. Same problem with the picture I wanted to insert. I could put in a picture and not a review. Other than that it is a fabulous app

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the review, and glad you're enjoying the app! We figured out the issue, looks like you have to tap *right* at the beginning of the field right now, but tapping the rest of the text area doesn't work. Appreciate you reporting that bug and we'll get that fixed asap!

used often!

i use this app often—when i’m trying to find details on an adventure i’m already planning on going to.... or when i’m at home, wanting to get out & do something, but not quite sure what’s around. it’s really helped me get to know the area around my new city! i really like the “offline” feature, which is obviously ideal for when you’re in an area without service (which is often for me). i also have my “to-do” lists for different parts of my new state. the filters on the previous version i felt were hard to use, but the newer version works better. i also am interested in trying the new lodging feature! keep up the good work!
