I am sorry to say so, but my experience is, that this program is total crap.
It is absolutly unresponsive and unintuive and it relies to heavy on other software.
There are some (old) webapps that do this much faster, more reliable and better than this ... program.
This is a perfect example that a commercial developer would show you to explain why you should pay for software.

Oh, I am so excited about this app! I confess that I have only begun tooling around in it. The only mistake I have made so far is to download it while at work - I am not sure I can concentrate on work - I'll be thinking about planning my bike trips! Hurry up and get here, Spring!

Seriously, I am really liking what I see. The options available are amazing. Being able to set personal preferences is a bonus but having the ability to plan a ride, in advance, is fantastic. I don't see using this app as squashing any spontaneity either but rather enhancing it.

Sorry, but I couldn't get TrailRunner 1.6v240 to work at all. From the very start, the spinning "busy" wheel icon in the middle of the map wouldn't stop spinning. I could only change the map's location and zoom. I could not make any kind of route or changes. I waited several minutes for it to stop. It never did.

Maybe I should have waited an hour or two for it to initialize. I don't have the time to wrestle with apps. Even if they are free, my time isn't.

I gave it 1/2 star for being free, 1/2 star for loading, but removed 1/2 star for wasting my time by not working at all.

Obviously it works for other people. Congratulations. But, it eludes me.

Two suggestions:

1) Try the current version rather than a very old one. Ver. 1.6v240 was probably put out before OS 10.7 was available

2) Don't rate software here at MU when you don't know the first thing about the system requirements of said software.

I have some .gpx tracks which I collected during last few years with my iPhone and MotionX GPS application. I wanted to store them in some easy to manage way on my computer, so I downloaded TrailRunner.

Well, it looks that it should be the right tool to do a job, but it just isn't. TrailRunner asks for a 'donation' of EUR 25 for a start, but you can dismiss the request. It allows to import track files in many formats, and shows useful information in quite attractive way. BUT, it is just terribly unstable. Generates various error messages almost constantly. It also refuses to import some files without a clear description of problem.

In short - stay away from it.

I use Trailrunner for some years and all I can say is that it works great. I use it with my Garmin eTrax (for hiking) and also with Nike+ for running. Keep up the good work.

I would like to have the possibility to send my results/tracks to Facebook or Twitter?

"obviously TrailRunner is not optimzed for speed" - talathard

I suspect you are making a joke.

Given computer speed and specs change rapidly - 9 years is a long time, even longer in computer components lifetime.

Perhaps you should consider upgrading your hardware to this decade.

regarding speed: i compared TR to rubitrack and ascent. And I am not the only one complaining about TR's speed. While my mac surely is one of the oldest here, IMHO drawing lines and a map should be done easily with 2GHZ.

If you want to see how god an application performs, just run it on old hardware. you learn a lot from it. Everything is fast on a 12-core.

It's $19.99 on the Mac App Store. The download is indeed free, but the developer asks for a €25 donation (about $35): http://trailrunnerx.com/en_donation/index.html

@Misha: Well this is mainly because MU is heavily endorsing the mac app store (for reasons not obvious to me - money?). I don't agree with the mac app store concept and will continue to avoid it where possible.

This is getting far OT but as I see it, many software entries for which a free available version would exist e.g. on GitHub or somewhere else and also a MAS, MU posts the MAS link. If that isn't endorsing the MAS I don't know what is.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
