Ratings and Reviews
Great in general, but lacks landscape support
I love this in general, though it’s very frustrating to me that it doesn’t support landscape mode — I almost always want to view the map in landscape.
I use an external GPS logger and import the resulting GPX files, so I can’t speak to the experience of tracking directly in the app itself.
The gamification aspects are more minor annoyances to me; I’m sure that some people enjoy that, but I wish I could completely disable it.
And I would love some more features, like the ability to tag/categorize tracks and show/hide certain ones. (For instance, I’d love to be able to show only train trips, or only road trips, or only hikes. I wish I could import flight paths when I travel, but most of the time I don’t want those to show on the map.)
Better than fog the world but still need improvements
Though the idea is not new, it did attract me to make the purchase because I moved around a lot. I used to use an app called "fog of world" which costs me $6 with a bunch of bugs and no updates 2 years ago.
This app is doing pretty good so far. But unfortunately it failed to record a couple hundred miles of my trip for some reason. It was not until I tried to check the process that I notice it has been turned off. Hopefully this is some random issues. Overall a good app, keep it up
Doesn’t automatically back up
I just lost a ton of data because the app was accidentally deleted and there’s no automatic backup. Unless you plan to manually back it up every day, I’d suggest finding a different app. My only option now is to completely wipe my phone and reinstall everything from an iCloud backup. This is unacceptable.
