Ratings and Reviews
Great App for Backpacking Trips!
I've used this app for three short backpacking trips and for my daily walks around town for exercise to track mileage. It really performs well. It's accurate and quick to respond. You can add waypoints with descriptions along the route and even photos along the way. You can share your saved trails with the world or keep them private. It works great, but I was still considering buying a dedicated GPS device because I wanted to be able to plan trips and plot routes before a trip. I just found out today that you can even do that with Wikiloc! You can draw your map out on your desktop and it gives you the milage and elevation along the route. After you save it, you can download it to your phone and follow the route. The phone battery runs down fast compared to one GPS unit that I read has a battery life of 12 hours. I can see a few areas that would make it easier to use, but it's an amazing app for the price! Well done Wikiloc.
Great for hiking but a few things I'd like to see...
It works great but I'd like it if one could edit more after s hike is saved. I'd like to be able to edit the type of activity, edit the title, etc. It would also be nice to have an alert like a beep that tells you if you've stopped moving so you can pause - and also a beep when you start moving again. I've been forgetting to Resume after pausing.
It's nice that my phone can get GPS without having to use cell data while in Europe.
Lots of potential
I’m just starting to use the app and am impressed with the number and variety of types of trails available. There is an opportunity for this to be an indispensable app if one likes to find new trails of all types. However it could easily become difficult to use if there are too many useless trails.
It would be nice to have something like master trails that list an established trail from start to finish and have people post suggestions for sections of trails or combinations of multiple trails that can make up a journey.
It would also be nice to have a standardized public transit section that describes if and how someone can get to and/or from the start and finish points of a trail.

Hi! For trail reliability we recommend to use the TrailRank, reviews (which are only allowed after trail-following) and comments.
On the other hand, we have just launched a new Wikiloc version with improvements and a new product: Wikiloc Premium. We hope you enjoy it! www.wikiloc.com/premium
