App Description

Footpath lets you map routes in seconds. Whether you prefer the simplicity of running or riding without a phone, forgot to record a GPS track, or want to plan out your next hike or race, Footpath allows you to map out your routes quicker and easier than ever before, all without GPS. It's easy: • Draw your route and watch it snap to roads and trails. • Press and hold on the map to automatically calculate routes between points. • No roads or trails nearby? No problem, just zoom in and draw your routes free-form by tapping the magnet. • View elevation profiles for your routes to gauge difficulty. • Share your routes via email, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Footpath Elite: Go the extra mile • Available via in-app purchase • Automatic syncing. Plan a route on your iPad and keep it on your iPhone for reference when you’re out. • Save unlimited routes. Great for trips, logs, or planning out the week ahead. • Want to change up the routine? Edit any of your saved routes to create new ones. • Premium topo maps and enhanced snapping to trails: USGS Topo Maps (U.S. and Canada) and OpenStreetMap (Mapbox Outdoors, Mapbox Outdoors Satellite), OpenCycleMap, & Thunderforest Landscape. Great for the outdoors and areas not covered by Google Maps. • Export your routes as GPX & KML files to your computer or other apps such as Google Earth, or share your routes to friends with Footpath via Airdrop or email. • More advanced features to come! Tips: • Try drawing your longer routes in multiple segments for better accuracy • If you see a road or trail overlay on the map, it can usually be snapped to • Try zooming in for more accuracy • If you need to route between unconnected roads, connect them by temporarily turning off snapping • Tap "Loop" to quickly calculate the quickest route back to the start • Tap "Out & Back" to automatically trace your route back to the start • Try switching to driving mode to ignore trails & footpaths or to use highways. Perfect for road trips. • Calculate your routes offline by preloading the maps beforehand and drawing without snapping • Import routes from other apps. Send a GPX file to your device and use the common “Open In…” menu to open the route right in Footpath. Footpath is designed for runners, hikers, walkers, and cyclists, but can and has been used for everything from kayaking & swimming to deliveries, travel, & road trips—even to land planning. Hit the road and forget about GPS. For any issues or suggestions, feel free to contact us at support@footpathapp.com

    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!
  • Great app, but backend is falling down

    I use this app almost daily to plan my running route for the day and it's great. I tell everyone I know to get it. However lately it's started to go downhill. Very frequently, when drawing a new line, it will error with "Snapping to Roads Unavailable". I assume it's calling out to something on the backend that's getting overloaded, because I'll get this 5-6 times in a row and then it will work. This is a more recent occurrence, for a long time it worked flawlessly. Fix this and you're back to five stars, but ultra annoying until then. (You can get a similar error when looking at elevation profile, which I also assume makes a backend call somewhere).
  • Do not buy it just a .99 demo

    You can't do much with the .99 version.you 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

    By anaheata
    It uses google map so most trails are not available
  • Perfect!

    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
