I rarely write reviews but I love this app so much I had to write one supporting this app. I use it all over the country, including both remote and popular trails and it always gets me where I want to go. I love the elevation, distance, and routing features.
I deleted the app and then loaded an older version of the app. (You do keep older versions around, don't you.). I am now running v1.3.3 and no longer get the nag to update and it works jult as it did in the old days.
And just like strava and their update for subscription only...I’m gone. Everyone should use MTB project if they want FREE.
Now you can get Pro and pay for YOUR data - WOOOOW! Hey trail forks, good job capitalizing on all that USER SUBMITTED data! Now I get to spend $36 a year to access all the data that I’ve given you.
This app was created with basic trail information, and filled in by users over years of use. They now charge those users who gave them their content a subscription fee to take advantage of the exact same features that were available for free. If you’re going to charge, add features worth charging for. Don’t charge us money for info that WE contributed to the app. Switching to MTBproject, OSM, Strava, etc...
I initially enjoyed this as a rudimentary assist to find rides and navigate, but now bc Trailforks has removed a bunch of features and limited the area to an absurdly small region—Trailforks is CRAP. Now I can hardly access any trails without an upgrade to a paid subscription. I’m definitely going to stop recommending this to other riders (hikers/runners etc) on the trail.
Free functionality is useless!
With the new update Trailforks require you pay $3 dollars a month to access all trails. Free users now only get a city wide area of trails for free. This is possibly the worst things to ever happen to this app, I ride everywhere now I can only see trails for one area! What deranged moron thought this was a good idea. Who hurt you people?
No longer provides basic trail information (like names or distance or map) without subscription. Does not work properly, even with subscription.
One of the recent updates has taken previously free features and monetized them. I’m heading back to MTBproject.
