  • Poor Execution

    By JPKelliher
    This app has a ton of potential, but it is put together poorly. First, there is no free online version as the app make it out to be. You get one quick view of a trail before you are asked to buy these trail maps if you want to see them again. Additionally, there is not way to link the trails together either. If you want to plan a ride, you can’t even connect multiple trails to set up a planned treck. Lastly, I am all for app developers making a living, but most of their data is crowd sourced and then they want you to pay a ridiculous amount to access the maps that users have supplied. I deleted the app within 30 minutes of use. Save the space on your phone. Save your money and use the MapMyRide app. Update 4/6/2017: the developer responded, as you can probably see below. However their response is inaccurate. I still cannot access any maps, on or offline. I am prompted to purchase any view of any map, even while online. And sure, they probably edit and update the details that they post about their trails, but there trail photos, and descriptions are definitely crowd sourced. Unless TrailLink can honestly post on this review that they PAY every person that has tracked and shared their GPS path for these trails, they are crowd sourcing. And there is nothing wrong with that, but charging end users $0.70 a map for content that was clearly shared by other users is WRONG. I encourage everyone that has shared a photo on this app to request payment for their services or pull down their photo and impress copyright infringement against TrailLink for making money on your photography without royalties.
  • Reliability is an issue

    Keeps kicking me out of the app. On top of the pay per trail pricing model I’m probably going to look elsewhere for a trail app 😟
  • Disappointing

    By purple62GM
    I attempted to register using my iPad, but hesitant as it offers receive your first map for free when you register. The app does not allow to open the registration field fully, so impossible to complete info beyond zip code. I sought out a couple familiar trails to see how the FREE app worked. All it did was spin the wheel at the top. I was already suspicious with the free map offer. Unable to open any map... NOT FREE, don't advertise as such!
  • Waste of Money

    Paid to download maps but a glitch caused a double charge. Went to download map and app keeps freezing so I can't get access to maps I paid to download. Contacted developer 2x and have received no response.
  • Has issues

    Very good idea but it needs to work. I put the app in my iPhone se and purchased some trails to give it a test before purchasing a full year access. Glad I did as when I selected a trail and purchased it all I got was a red line. The start and finish points were marked but nothing else useful such as parking, water or anything else. I did better using google maps for free. Great idea but needs a lot of improvement. Glad I didn’t get waste money on full access
  • Great app for offline maps!

    This is an excellent app for offline maps.
  • Couldn't get past log in screen

    By CMo723
    I found this app online, looked pretty cool so I downloaded it. Tried creating a log in using my email and got an error message. So I tried creating a log in with Facebook, same error message. Lame!
  • Trail link will be so handy

    By cindy c nm
    Got our first map and are heading out on the Katy trail next week. Really happy with the ease of use
  • Good Resource

    By staeces
    Since I travel a lot, I find this app useful for zeroing in on trails that I can enjoy while in new places. The app saves me time by providing local information & helpful hints to maximize my experience. Thanks!! Also, I cannot understand how anybody could ever complain about paying a bit for work that others do, to make your life more enjoyable. Seriously, the app creator/manager seems to be communicative w users & wants to improve the app ongoing.
  • Awesome
