Get More From Your Journey

Instead of just sticking to the same old trails that you're familiar with why not branch out and maybe discover some new gems. That's where the Moon Bay Area Biking app can help by giving you information on 60 different ride trails. You're getting more than just a listing of these trails though; you'll be able to take advantage of the interactive maps that allow you to tap on points that you want to get more details on. If you're using the app on your iPad you also have the ability to make notes in the guide so that you remember them while on the trail or when looking back at your adventure.

The app was last updated one year ago when it offered some bug fixes, some stability improvements, and it was made to be compatible with iOS 7.0. The app doesn't have a customer rating right now or any customer comments. Once you purchase the app you won’t need to make any additional in-app purchases.

The User Experience

The Moon Bay Area Biking app offers a few tools that are meant to enhance the experience. While this one isn't loaded with bells and whistles it is kept very clean and uncluttered. As mentioned you're getting interactive maps that allow you to get detailed information on the trails such as the distance, the trail name, the time, the level of difficulty, elevation, and more. You can perform a search within the app and even on Wikipedia and Google, you can highlight websites, maps, and pages, as well as bookmark any of these items. There is also a social sharing tool so you can share your rides on Twitter, Facebook, and by email. Obviously this app is ideal to use before heading out on the trail to plan your journey.

It's definitely got a basic look to it and I feel like for the price it needs to be a bit more engaging and entertaining.
