    "When we moved to Colorado, we started hiking more and more. I tried checking out trails online but none of the sites really told us the big picture of each trail. Ran into someone on a trail that was staring at an app on their phone, so I got up the guts to ask about it. Glad I did. This app pretty much does everything I wanted. "

    "I went camping last fall and Ramblr would of been perfect had I used it back then. I did get a chance to use it this past spring and found it very easy to set up and keep a daily photo and video journal going. I like it so much that I'm planning on using it on all of my future vacations now. "

    "I used this app in the summer when I was out with my family camping. We were able to get a great outline of everything we were looking at. It is very accurate, easy to use and offers a lot of information about the stars and planets you are seeing. It is more in-depth than other similar apps I have tried. "

    "This seems like a good app for people who like to get outdoors. I like how it has many different terrain options. It does cost money though and is only available on the apple store it seems."

    "I really liked this app until I discovered its fatal flaw, it uses a crazy amount of data, even background data and that's a shame. There's a lot of well presented data, good hiking maps but I have no idea what data is shuffling around and I just cannot have that on my phone."

    "This may not be the best solution to the topic. It is an app that helps you find campgrounds but the reviews are minimal and they are all not good, some even refer to it as a "useless app". There are plenty of other apps that could do a much better job and that can give you more information about camping and outdoors than this app. "

    "This little app is an essential for any camping road trip. I tend to get sidetracked whilst meandering through the hiways and biways, and Camp Finder has saved my life by finding me a stall to park in more than once. Good maps of all the nearby campgrounds along with details, pricing, and ratings from my fellow wayfairing wanderers make this a lifesaver. If you are more organized than me, you might even plan out your whole trip right on your phone."
