nice. concept ... but why is this app so incredibly slow compared to others? I have a 4 GHz core i7 with whopping fast graphics card....still nor responsive. I have an old version of Adze from 2016 which runs fast...same for rubytrack. its a pity.

I'm preparing for running 100 km marathon and searching for a good app that could help me to track my routs with maps, graphs and all that stuff. Have anybody tried TrailRunner for a similar purpose? Please share your experience.

The versions for OS X available for download don't work; they simply quit with a "This version has expired; old versions expire after three months, please update to a newer version..." error message.

• Won't show topo view — goes to satellite view instead.
• Shows local roads incorrectly (Google does the same).

It's impossible to use it now. Needs updates and lots of bug fixes. Strongly not recommended, unfortunately.

Stopped trying to get this program running. Couldn't save routes, maps took forever to build and much more. Shame, the concept isn't bad at all.

I've been using this app for several years now. I like the fact I can organise my tracks all in one place, with tons of information about my data. My biggest problem is the fact I cannot export my tracks easily. I'd like to pull my HUNDREDS of tracks i've recorded into Strava/Garmin/MotionX and similar programs, but to export each track individually is tedious and unnecessary. GIVE BULK .gpx exporting. Until then, i've stopped using this program.

No visible maps, no search location. No functional. It's wasting free space on hdd
