Footpath Route Planner - Running / Cycling / Hiking Maps アプリのレビュー

Great app

Love this app but crashes on IOS 12! Just a quick update, quick response from the developer and problem fixed. This is a great app with great support.

Works great - needs watch version

This app is a great concept & I love that it gives directions for the route. I used it to create routes una local park as I prepare for a half marathon - so helpful. I could really use a watch version of it as well since I do t run with my phone. I was really surprised to see there wasn’t one. With that I’d be all about the 5⭐️


It’s an amazing app, it’s easy to use.I track all of my runs I do with it. It’s way easier than the other apps I have tried.

Great app for runners

This is my go-to app for planning runs. The interface is very clean and easy to use. Well done! Highly recommended.

Amazing idea!

I would give it 5 stars if it had an app for Apple Watch and you could send your routes there and get directions!

Pretty Pointless

You really need to know the route you want to take to be able to draw it properly on the map. And if you already know the route, what’s the point if the app?

Free version of app is horrible!

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.

It didn’t take long for the app to act up!

I was fine with creating different routes for running, but you have to pay for saving and reusing multiple routes. So I decided to share my route to my text message to my phone, but now the app keeps freezing up. I enjoy the purpose of this app which deserve a 2 star otherwise, this is a TRUE 1 STAR!

The best has just gotten better

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.)

Pay to use

I thought it was gonna be a free to use offline map. Instead, you have to pay to use the app.

If it ain't broke don't fix it

Very confusing hard to Navaigate Old app much better


This app is the best. Planning routes literally can't be easier or faster. Get it now ! (Subscription based apps stink though. They take all your money)

Simple and powerful

I used this for one month during a cycling trip and loved it. Altitude, distance, it has everything, and extremely simple to use. I’ve tried 10+ similar products and this is my fav.

Great again!

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.

New Version removes features to force subscription

Think twice about downloading the latest version of this app. They changed it to push you into their "Elite" subscription plan... USGS topos and other maps are no longer available unless you pay. Lame move Footpath.

Great app, but backend is falling down

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.

Very Helpful!

Works great to plot courses in unfamiliar places.

Excellent for creating routes!

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.

I like this app but...

The newest version needs some serious bug fixes. Snap to roads gets wonkier by the day and now has some MAJOR problems snapping to bike paths and trails. This is the only really easy route planner out there for iPhone but it is need of a lot of help right now.

Love this app!

Footpath is a great tool to use for planning my runs and figuring out the distance!

Amazing app!

I love this map for how simply and quickly I can map out routes along so many trails and roads. Great for route planning for runs and hikes. The traceable elevation profile is a great feature. So glad they updated the app again after a few years.

Nice idea, Poor implementation

Nearly impossible to read the available are for routing. Please don’t waste you money on this app.

Easy to use, works great!

I use this to do quick routes for walks or runs and also use it to do quick layouts to use for ride with gps for my bike rides. It’s so quick and easy to modify and create a route.

The best route planning app

This app was the reason I bought an iPhone. Period. Allows me to plan my routes and, importantly, check elevation profiles.

Love it, but

Love this app! The only setback is I’ve recently received a lot of error messages when it says “snap to road is unavailable” which is annoying.

Needs voice directions

Needs a voiceover for directions.

No sidewalk/trails snapping

I downloaded this app as it said that it would snap to trails however the only thing that I can get it to snap to are streets. I’ve tried several times, used the different types of maps and zoomed in as far as it would go trying to get it to snap to the trails/sidewalks to no avail. Pretty much like using the ‘paths’ in Google Earth except this wasn’t free.

Worth it

works fantastically

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.

Great for Planning/Mapping Running Routes

I use this app to pre-plan and route every new running route. Extremely easy to use and straightforward.


I like the ease of finger-drawing routes in Footpath. Seems to work well. I see the results can be exhorted to gps devices, etc. I would like to simply either have it give me turn-by-turn directions on my iPhone, either through the App itself, or a direct import/copy into Google Maps or Apple Maps. I'd like to be on my walk or run and here my iPhone tell me to "turn left", "turn right", etc.

Easy to Use

Very easy to use and share routes. I build it for finding running routes around town.


Love this app. Perfect for what I need, calculating distance for my walks.

Finally been found

I'm so happy with this app and for a dollar it's a steal. easy to use, option to save your routes and you get to name them. Simple and straight to the point.

Used to be amazing... but broken

Amazing app for quickly tapping out routes. I used to choose this over using my computer to create apps. Now, however, the snap-to-roads only works intermittently (probably a downed server), and the elevation profiles have been mostly broken for months. I’d stay away for now, but I hope they fix it!

Do not buy it just a .99 demo

You can't do much with the .99 are limited to 5 routes (2 of which are saved for you already) It wants you to spend an additional 4.99 to unlock all the features and the drawing is not as simple as it sounds

I would have paid $30

Amazing app for planning runs. Seriously this is a gem.

Not many trails

It uses google map so most trails are not available


Just got this, but have already experimentally plotted several known running routes. It's accurate, and I'm excited to plot new routes with it.

Great tool for planning running routes

Great tool for planning running routes

Not worth it

Not great for planning long runs. Unable to edit once drawn. Wish I wouldn't have spent the money.

Easy Peesey, Lemon Squeezy

Skip Map My Run and Map My Ride. No complicated instructions. Just trace your fingers over Google Maps and save. Terrific app.

Awesome app



I don't like to carry my phone when I run. This app allows me to plan my run and get accurate mileage without having to use GPS. Also let's me scout out runs before I travel.


This is a great app. Very useful for planning my work-outs.

Great for cycling

I use it to plan cycling routes. It's very simple, clear and direct, and lets me explore many alternative routes.

Good for planning, tracking routes

Either before or after your walk/ride, this is a good app for figuring distance travelled.

One of the most useful apps I have

I'm in the Marine Corps and don't always have a gps available while I run so I love that this app is so accurate and user friendly

Training routes

Great way to plan your routes. Especially helpful during marathon training for your long runs!!

I love this app!

I rarely remember to start Map My Ride before I head out. This app lets me document the ride after I return and gives me the miles ridden and elevation gain.
