App Reviews

  • The best has just gotten better

    By Hurri47
    OK this is going to be a rave. Nobody is mentioning what I thought was the most interesting thing about new version 3. The old version would switch maps automatically depending on zoom level, but the new Footpath Outdoors map appears to just combine all the information of the old maps without the jarring switch. The tutorial is very brief with only the basics covered, but if you haven’t found a feature you want - for me it was how to switch snap types on the fly - keep poking controls in the corners and it’s a good bet you’ll find it in one of them. (The snap switch is a few extra taps to switch but it does work smoothly and consistently.) The new editing tools are hugely welcome! I don’t recall if I could edit saved routes in the old version, but that’s in here now. I haven’t found a way to edit start points, so unless I’m just missing something I’d recommend zooming in very close on your start point and then backing out to complete the route. I also appreciate the new account system where I can create/edit routes on my iPad and see the same routes on my iPhone. The grandfathering of my old saved routes into the iPad was very nice - I was briefly afraid I’d have to pay again until I found the secret instruction to invoke it. (Pssst - hey dev, I’d have paid it anyway, but thanks, that was very kind.)
  • Excellent GPX planning app

    By TexDrex
    When I ditched my MacBook Air several months ago, I was looking for a replacement to using my previous route planing website, which allowed for GPX export I could then subsequently load onto my Garmin Fenix 3. What seemed like an easy chore, proved very difficult. Footpath was the solution I was looking for! Easily planned routing, saving, and subsequent export to my device has made this app a no-brainer for me. The recent Fall upgrade has made it even better. Question: previously, I was able to manually arrange my created/saved routes in any order I wished. I’m not able to do that since the most recent update. Am I missing this feature, or was it removed? Previously, I tapped the “edit” button, and, in addition to the red delete symbols along the side, it had little “grabbers” beside each route that I used to order them according to my preference.
  • Free version of app is horrible!

    By olivia_is_great
    I got the free version of this app to create routes for cycling with my bike club/walking my dog and it was awful! You can only view your most recent route that you’ve made and you have to delete all others to see just one! The idea is great and I’m sure the “elite version” is amazing because until I found out I can only view my most recent route, I was loving this app. If you are willing to pay for the full version then this app is great for you but if you aren’t, steer clear of this app and don’t waste your time. Also, with the free version, once you have saved the route you can’t edit it and you have to make an entirely new one! If you are in need of an app like this and think that you would use it on a daily basis then I think you should get the full version but if you’re like me and just getting this app to try out and use rarely then definitely stay away.
  • This app is incredible

    By Lewismw
    I use Footpath multiple times a week and couldn’t be more impressed. Most of my runs are on trails and my Garmin isn’t even close to as accurate as this app. The trail maps are remarkably extensive and I also use it find trails which don’t appear on Garmin, Google, or Strava. Most of my experience with this app is in Portland, Oregon but I use it when I travel and it’s worked great everywhere I’ve been. Overall the app is intuitive and easy to use. The drawing feature is super useful with snap to map on or off and everything loads really quickly. The maps are beautiful and the ability to store lots of routes made the elite version worth it for me. I’ll be using this app for a long time.
  • Plan Your Routes, Vary Routes, Vary Distance

    By Kebia007
    This app is absolutely indispensable for runners who want plan their routes, whether it is to vary their routes but not their distance, or if they just want to map out new routes. This app has allowed me to map out several routes of varying distances (from 4 to 10 miles) without having to cover the same real estate twice. The mile is pretty accurate too, matching the distance of my Garmin Fenix 3 +\- .05 miles. If I could export routes to other apps, or enabled the app to give turn-by-turn directions over Bluetooth, this app would be that much more useful.
  • Excellent for creating routes!

    By Hikercycler
    This is the only app I have found that allows you to create routes by touching a trail. You don't have to touch every spot, just every half mile or so and the route "snaps" to the trail. When done it displays distance and an elevation profile. A number of different background maps are available, including USGS Topo, satellite maps, etc. Access to the maps are via WIFI or cellular data. However the saved routes can be exported to other map apps that can download maps for off-line use.
  • Great again!

    By djc0
    UPDATE 24th Aug 2018: Originally wrote a negative review for the new v3 with subscription, but then contacted the developer for some clarifications. I feel bad now as he’s been very responsive and I think has a sensible way to honour past purchasers (grandfathered into an elite “core” membership apparently). So going back to 5 stars, because it’s a great app that I use all the time, I’ve now found out the developer is very nice and reasonable (and cares about his users), and I’m happy to support and recommend because I want to see this app continue into the future. ————— UPDATE 5th May 2015: Just keeps getting better. Can now reorder my runs AND also export the GPX! Great app! ————— I use this to plan my runs. Works great and does everything I need and does it well. My only minor request is that it would be great to be able to reorder your saved runs. Other than that this app is essentially perfect. Recommended.
  • Clunky, hard to use for long distance

    The drawings don't really go where you want them to--the app has a hard time figuring out not to turn you around on bridges, for instan ce. Also if you want to go more than a very short distance you have to go through the clunky process of moving the map, pushing draw again, drawing, undoing six times until the thing reads where you want to go, then pushing done, then moving the map and repeating until your route is complete. And if you want to make a change to your route, forget it-you have to start over. It's a great idea and on its way to being something that could resolve routing without a computer handy, but honestly it's disappointing for a paid app. It works like an early beta test at best.
  • Could better or easier to use

    By ZinzinnatiOhio
    Using this for biking I had to plot out like every 15 miles to make sure it kept on the bike trail system from Cincinnati to DC even though the trail covers about 75% of the ride. It was set to biking but loved putting me on interstates, or would just put a line through an area with nothing road or trail-like. It assumes I want to carry my bike and supplies across a river? And...where do I get the turn-by-turn directions? Looked at the Elite aspects to this and it didn't indicate it allows that feature. After getting flustered with this for 3 hours I realized Google Maps allows you to search specifically for a bike trail between two points. *sigh*
  • Great app, but backend is falling down

    By beamrider9
    I used to use this app daily to plan my running route, then it started having backend errors constantly when snapping to roads and sat broken for a long time. The developer updated it but whatever new mapping backend it’s using is not good. The app displays Google Maps but the backend that does the snapping to roads clearly uses a different mapping provider. Very frequently it doesn’t match the Google Maps map and makes it hard to accurately plan a route - it misses a lot of trails and does some odd things on roads. It’s often impossible to make a simple route without disabling road snapping. I’ve switched to a different route planning app without this problem and deleted Footpath.
