Trace over the incorrect segment to edit, or use the eraser tool. • Turn off snap to roads (magnet icon) and zoom in to manually trace the map. (Try switching to a satellite layer).

  • Great app for runners

    By Devilish look
    Sometimes I like to just run. No GPS, no phone. Now I know exactly what my distance was without having to be connected to anything but nature...
  • Excellent GPX planning app

    By TexDrex
    When I ditched my MacBook Air several months ago, I was looking for a replacement to using my previous route planing website, which allowed for GPX export I could then subsequently load onto my Garmin Fenix 3. What seemed like an easy chore, proved very difficult. Footpath was the solution I was looking for! Easily planned routing, saving, and subsequent export to my device has made this app a no-brainer for me. The recent Fall upgrade has made it even better. Question: previously, I was able to manually arrange my created/saved routes in any order I wished. I’m not able to do that since the most recent update. Am I missing this feature, or was it removed? Previously, I tapped the “edit” button, and, in addition to the red delete symbols along the side, it had little “grabbers” beside each route that I used to order them according to my preference.
  • Great app

    By Pauls Pens
    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

    By M_Ryburn
    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⭐️
  • Positive

    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

    By lrf26p2
    This is my go-to app for planning runs. The interface is very clean and easy to use. Well done! Highly recommended.
  • Amazing idea!

    By capitanpano
    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

    By Mikeatcut
    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!

    By olivia_is_great
    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!

    By JJM🇭🇹🇺🇸4
    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!
