Are you planning for the app to have eventually keep active links?

Many routes in the MP database use nearby routes as navigation anchors: for instance, the description for route 1 may have a link to route 2 in it. Or the area containing both will have a helpful list of routes that have pictures that aid in navigation, for instance.

In the app those are just plain text.

We are in the initial planning phases of an entire re-write of the apps with some new features and fixes like this. I will put this on the list. Nick Wilder

So many great things about this app!

To polish the features, could you add the ability to share bookmarks. I put together a hit list for road trips, and it would be great to share with partners. Thanks.

Ability to find routes of type (e.g. sport).

I downloaded all pics for an area and then went out to the climb and had no reception. It seemed as though it only had thumbnails downloaded. The pics were too blurry to read topos or make out details of the rock features.

Ads on a $8 app is a negative, but at least they aren't all over.

I'm using the iPhone app. Have been using it for more than a year with no problems. But now all of the sudden a lot of route pics that show on the website are gone from the app? I downloaded an update for a couple areas and now most of the pics that were there before (and have been there for years and still show on the website) are gone now, and the new pics don't show up either. I tried updating the app to the latest version, still no pics and now I have ads. I already tried deleting and re-adding the areas, pics are still not there. Tried refreshing every single area and routes within each area and still nothing. The route pics are the main reason I use this app. Please help. Scott Taber

They got rid of the pictures to save download space. They now only include pictures with high ratings and maybe topo or info. pictures. I liked pictures too. Made it easier to find a route. They wanted downloads to be faster. Jay Eggleston

Please see this topic:

Perhaps I need to add more back in? It's seeming fine for the areas I checked.

Makes sense, but this is removing a lot of useful photos in the process. Maybe include at least beta photos for each route? Or if that's still too much then at least 1 beta photo for each route? Descriptions are frequently inaccurate, misleading, or confusing. A good photo makes route finding much simpler. Scott Taber

Things seem fine to me. Perhaps delete the app from your phone and re-install it? I've seen cases where the route database on the phone craps out. If that doesn't fix it, PM me with more details of how it's not working, what phone you have, etc.

Aiding. Photo by Locker.
So I was just climbing in Eldo on some classics on the West Ridge: Mesca-Line, Washington Irving, Unsaid, Verschneidung.

Zero pictures, IIRC. Are there really no decent pictures for these routes, or has picture pruning gone that far?

The number of photos has changed many times in the last few weeks, and most have been returned. Delete Eldo and re-install it, and they should mostly be back.

Yeah, that just happened to me too. (iphone) It looks like it's going to load, and then it just bounces me back to my home screen. Did the same after I restarted the phone.

Thanks guys. There is Android news in the other thread, where I'm trying to consolidate news about this release:

Other areas seem alright so far, but for Rumney, NH it keeps saying "An import error occurred. Tap to retry" I have done so numerous times over the last few days, with the same result. I am using an LG G2 M Sprague

Sometimes the internal database gets hosed. Delete the app and reinstall it - usually fixes.

Some quick input for the App: Sorting Bookmarks: I love and use the Bookmarks feature. Some way to sort routes and areas on the Bookmarks page would be super helpful. Sorting Areas: There is a sorting problem with areas that begin with “The”. Areas that begin with “The” are mistakenly put down the list with areas with names that begin with “T”. However lists of routes are sorted correctly. Sorting Routes: I love the ability to sort routes in an area by L>R, R>L, and alpha. As mentioned before, sorting routes by rating would also be nice. Star Ratings: When looking at a list of routes I like to see yellow star ratings for routes I have rated. This is the case on the web version of MP, and used to be that way in earlier app releases. In the current app version you have to open each route to see yellow star ratings.


I like the improvements in the latest release. At the same time here are time items I was hoping for:

  • Sort bookmarks - =(
  • Sort areas correctly - =(
  • Sort routes by rating - =(
  • Star ratings - =) Yes!!!

John, we are redesigning the Area and Route screens right now, and we always love this kind of feedback. Any more details would be greatly appreciated, in any form (reply here, send me a private message, sketch something...).

We're going to be moving in the direction of more frequent app updates, with 1-2 new features per round.

Thanks!

awesome pitch
This app is terrible. Can't I just have the old IPhone App back ? I can't look at any pictures, the app crashes all the time especially if I attempt to look at a picture, and yes I have the most updated version of everything. LAME Andy F
