  • Expected more

    by Sydney Applebaum

    Really was expecting a more detailed hiking map. Its missing quite a few obvious and known hikes. Hopefully updates will have more. Do not make this you're only app for hiking the ADK.

  • ADK hiking app

    by Davendee

    This is a great app. I love that trails, camping, biking and businesses are listed. I'm an avid hiker and will use the app often in the future! Looking forward to the snowmobile app- I hope it'll have snowshoeing trails as well. Thanks!!

  • Excellent program

    by Ko19

    This app has an exceptional interface with Google maps. It is speedy and clear. You can remove or add various POI depending on what you want to do. The GPS functions great. It found me within 20 feet or so of where I was standing. There are lots of trails marked on the maps. The developers are still working a few small bugs out. They are aware of these, I had some great communication with one of them. I only gave it 4 stars because of these minor issues. If there was a 4.5, that would have been my rating. To the developers: Excellent work, keep it up! PS - They have a snowmobile App coming out too!

  • Excellent Hiking App

    by dan_7

    This is an excellent app, well worth checking out. I've been hiking in the central 'dacks for many years, and I'll still find a use for this handy tool. The GPS and map functions are similar to other offerings, but this one adds several benefits. One of my favorites is the elevation profile, along with notes on trailhead location and some specifics on the trail itself. Business markers with phone numbers is also useful. I look forward to the addition of more trails and businesses!

  • Needs work to be more useful, especially for the price

    by richtaber

    I have around 180 apps on my cell phone, and this one has been probably the most aggravating for me to use. You almost have to beat the iphone screen to get it to open; it opens when it feels like it. This was a fairly expensive app, and for the price I would not recommend it until it gets better. I am fairly computer/geekily oriented, and found this program rather difficult to use. It does have some farily useful information in it, once you can get to it. I have also noticed that many of the highlit trails are located out yonder, with no loops. For the price, save your money and buy a guidebook from the Adirondack Mountain club.
