  • Keep Getting Logged Out

    By FrisbeeDog
    Logged in via Google and every time I open the app, I have to sign back in. Also, Apple Watch app should let you view offline maps without starting to record tracks. Would be much more useful in the backcountry where battery life is limited.
  • Difficult to set up and use

    By Dorkhat
    Difficult to set up and use; couldn’t find any instructions or figure out how to navigate to the needed fields. Did it heuristically and still have questions.
  • Expensive!!

    By Jacqui2006
    What a rip off. I wanted to download a map so it said purchase whole United States for 19.99. It gave me the one map I was trying to download and that was it. I tried to download another map and it wanted me to buy credits. Really disappointed!!!
  • My favorite hiking/trail running app

    By wwinfrey
    ViewRanger gets the job done, is more intuitive than the competition, easy to read and handle even while on the trail. Only reason I don’t give 5 stars is the Apple Watch integration can be a bit janky. Once that improves, I’m sure it’ll be 5 stars.
  • Extremely robust and customizable

    By Bwa236
    UPDATE Feb 2018: as of version 2.3, the offline map download feature was updated and does not allow selection of specific map tiles for download. Instead it requires you to pinch-zoom the map area and it downloads everything on screen. TERRIBLE update. I am fortunate to be able to downgrade to previous versions, and lo' and behold the area I was going to download offline already had map tiles downloaded for that area. The difference was downloading 2040 map tiles with the new pinch-zoom version of the app, of 840 map tiles when I was able to only select map tiles I didn't already have. VIEWRANGER - please bring back the option to select individual map tiles for offline use. At least give me the option. Otherwise I will not be updating the app and will be lowering your star rating to 4/5. Unacceptable change to a feature I use extensively and for no good reason. ORIGINAL REVIEW (Still true): This is the best app I have used for hiking and skiing and is my go-to app for this. 5 years of using it in CO and it it great to see the my tracks over the years in a central map. It would be great if it could interface with, or more easily allowed GPX import (preferably without a computer!!). Also, direct export to Google Earth would be cool! UPDATE:Viewranger's addition of many cloud-based storage locations is much appreciated and makes transferring routes/GPX files and importing into ViewRanger much easier.
  • A great hiking companion!

    By mkonstan
    I love this app! It is the best I have found for tracking your hike. It also has lots of views and I love the ability to download offline areas. I have used this app on 4 continents and many different countries, and it has worked great every time!
  • ViewRanger!!!!

    By bcrossb
    Totally kewl! Packed to the brim with features
  • Didn’t record anything

    By Bstowwwwwn
    Went hiking for a few hours today and pressed record on my Apple Watch. Nothing transferred over to my iPhone when I got home and the date didn’t save on the Watch app so I guess it’s just lost??? Really annoying.
  • Favorite app on the trail

    By mariaaraqb
    I’ve used this app for years at home in New York and on long distance walks in Europe (Switzerland, UK, France, Austria). With the right settings it’s very accurate and doesn’t use much battery. I love the ability to draw routes ahead of time, to import and export gpx tracks, modify and save tracks, share my routes with other users, download maps for offline use including high quality free maps (eg. open cycle) as well as a wide selection of premium maps. It’s my go to app for walking and hiking throughout Europe and English speaking parts of the world.
  • Not impressed

    By MannyRB80
    I’m the least bit impressed with this app. The pricing is crazy. Graphics for 2018 well let’s just say I’ve seen better.
