Trails.com is the ultimate guide to the outdoors. Whether you’re an outdoor fitness enthusiast or just love nature adventures, you’ll find something useful in this app. Features include data on more than 100,000 trails, GPS directions, guidebooks, user reviews, photos, topo maps and much more. Some features are hidden behind a subscription service, but you can access a bulk of them for free.
As long as developers keep coming up with new and interesting ways to help users be more productive, I am going to keep trying them out. Listy is an extremely minimalist todo app that allows you to keep track of your tasks with a quick and simple interface. And that’s really all there is to it—no power-user features here. Create a list, add a todo item, set an alarm if necessary, and cross it off once it’s completed.
