    "Yonder has pretty much everything I am looking for an outdoor activity app but I wish it was a bit less buggy. The community is great and this app has pretty much everything which I really like and that's why I keep putting up with the occasional crash. I'm going to keep using it because at least the developer is fixing things I just wish they could fix them faster."

    "GREAT for finding new trails, and even keeping track of the ones you have been on. It will even give you directions right to the trail head when you find a new one you want to explore. You can rate trails and see what others rate them as. This is great. "
