Best trail app, across sports, hands down.

I trail run, mountain bike, ski, hike, etc. I have a lot of incongruencies with other apps that are incorrect and this app has really helped me in the backcountry as well as just on town local trails to know all of the systems that are within the area. I can go anywhere in the world and find trails and find point locations without any issues or even requirement to really know the application. Over the years I’ve gotten to know it really well, so I definitely am probably more educated at this point, and at the same time I recommend it to everyone I know.

Barely functional

Good luck doing anything besides recording a ride. The app is way overloaded with functions that do not work. You will spend hours on the simplest tasks to no avail, like cropping your avatar as it only displays the top left 16th of whatever photo you choose regardless of size, while the crop box stays frozen in time. Uploading trail photos is a nightmare as the app randomizes the photo information despite your input, and correcting it is nearly impossible. Forgetting to stop a ‘public’ recording will leave a track directly to your house, and when you crop that part out for privacy, it will reappear the next time you open the app, so you must delete the entire recording. Regardless of your chosen region, when you click discover, the app will display trails that are thousands of miles away, and you cannot even narrow it down to your state. I could go on and on as I have spent countless hours over the past few years trying to get the hang this super janky software. My IQ is not low. Sorry trailforks, I don’t think people are looking for a brain aneurism in exchange for a mountain biking app. I have contributed a lot to trailforks btw, and it’s been a painstakingly slow or unsuccessful process. Our time is too valuable to be wasted on this dysfunctional software. Trim the fat, and simplify the process trailforks, it’s that bad. I am guessing the people claiming trailforks as a must have are not contributors or trail builders.

Works well for me

As much as I don't like paying for things I at least understand that most people can't work for free, and similarly app development / maintenance ain't free. (I currently have the Pro subscription) I dont much access the online version (computer) but I agree that there is an annoying login bug, waiting for resolution on this. Its not perfect as far as trail coverage and updates but it's not faltered in finding my ways. That's specifically been Colorado Kansas Missouri Arkansas Spain Sweden for coverages... I recommend it overall. Note After last app update and the issues with it - you should try to delete and reinstall phone app - now mine works fine. Had very prompt communication with app developers and so far so good.
