From the iFootpath App menu tap the Store button. You will need internet access to see the walk Store and therefore you will need to be connected via WiFi or 3/4G. A list of all the published iFootpath walks will appear. You can use the Search feature to find walks by location, type, etc. To read more about a walk just tap the walk in the list. A new page appears giving you the walk overview. Use the ‘Download Walk’ button to add the walk to your Library. The details of this walk will now be stored locally on your device and can be accessed from the Library meaning you can follow the walk without needing internet access or phone signal.

We recommend that before starting a walk you tap the Refresh button for the walk in the Library. This will ensure that you have the latest version of teh walk on your device.

One you have the walk in the Library just tap Walk, to see and follow the route.

 

Yes, you can use the same account to login to the website and both the iOS and Android Apps. Some users find it easier to register on the website and then just login into the App.

No, I am sorry we do not have any plans at the moment to launch the iFootpath App for Windows or Blackberry devices. Unfortunalety the cost of developing an App for these operating systems would be too high given the projected number of users.

Printing the walks from the website is a good way to obtain great free walking guides with detailed turn-by-turn instructions. In addition some walks have a PDF leaflet that can be downloaded with a more detailed schematic map. However, we would advise that you buy our App for your iOS or Android device. Having the App available gives you a number of advantages including a live interactive map showing your exact location relative to the walk route, the ability to take walks with you where ever you go, an up-to-date list of all of the iFootpath walks (walks are added every week) and the ability to add comments, rate walks and add photographs to the walk gallery as you enjoy your day. You can also use the live map to see where you are in realtion to the walk start point when you are travelling to the walk area.

We are working on it!! All our walks are created by walking the route to capture the detailed directions, photos and live GPS map data. This is fairly time consuming but we know that the results are worth it. We have at least one walk in every mainland county in England, plus growing collections in Wales and Scotland. We add new walks to the site every week. Join our Facebook or Twitter communities to receive the information about the walks as they are added.

Yes, it would be great if you could publish a walk. Please visit the following user guides to read more about publishing walks on iFootpath.

Yes and no. The App will work outside of the UK and the walks can be downloaded to the App. It would also be possible to use the Tracker function to record a walk route and upload it to your account on the iFootpath website. However, we have no plans to publish full walking guides for areas outside of the UK at the moment.  If you would like to talk to us about developing a portfolio of walks outside of the UK please get in contact with us.

In short yes. The iFootpath App is available for sale on all iTunes and Google Play markets. However, you will need to check to make sure that your home country carrier has agreements with carriers in the UK and that you understand fully the charges for data that will be made. An alternative is to buy a new sim card in the UK, however some devices are locked and will not accept a sim card from another carrier. In addition we would suggest that you seek to download walks from the Store to the Library when connected to WiFi. When you are following an iFootpath walk the tracker works using a GPS signal which is not part of your data package and is free, however, the background maps do require a 3G, 4G or WiFi signal to download.

We have lots of overseas users that have bought the App and followed the waking guides whilst visiting Britain. 

The iFootpath iOS/Apple App has been created for us on an iPhone, however it can still be used on an iPad. 

To find the iFootpath App using your iPad, search using the word "iFootpath". You will probably get no results. Next, look for 'iPad only' in the top menu. Tap this and from the drop down menu choose 'iPhone only'. The iFootpath App will then be available.
