Hi there,
I'm using Android and am trying to use the app,
I'm a bit confused about what I can do with it and how!

It seems like, I can only add hikes to a to-do list and check in.

I personally like the app for it's on trail navigation, following the designated route so you don't get lost.  I still prefer the website for researching where to go next.

Hi Ido,
We do expect to be making some updates to the Android app soon. We're a small team that works to provide the best user experience, so these changes take some time—but stay tuned!

Would like to see about creating a custom route for myself.  more of a planning part.  Wouldn't mind if there were icons on the trail that would maybe mention known water sources as you're trailing along.

Hello. Is it possible to add a trail using the Android app? Thanks!

Hi Jeff,

At the moment it is not possible to add trails directly through the apps. However, if you log into your account on the website you can add content.

If one of the primary goals is to get users to add trails into the app then perhaps this should be one of the top features.  Right now it appears you must use a 3rd party app to record your trail tracks, export the data, import that data into the Hiking Project web interface, and then add all the descriptive content.  I'll see how it goes.  

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
