Personal Comments by Reviewer
I think this app is an absolutely brilliant idea with heaps of potential; however, it still seems to be somewhat in its infancy. I think that with future updates, we’ll be seeing a lot of extra content and features added to LiveTrekker because there is clearly a demand for an app like this.
As more users submit more treks to the community, it would be good to see a more dedicated search facility to help people find routes in their local area as well as internationally.
