Trailguide news & blog
All about outdoor sports, tourism, digitalization and the Trailguide app.
Why don't you make Trailguide as an app?
We often get the question "why don't you make Trailguide as an app?" from users. There are many reasons for this and in this short blog post I try to list some of the reasons why we make Trailguide as a web app, and one reasons why we should possible have made it a native app.
An attempt to keep track of significant changes in the Trailguide app
There are literally 100s of changes and commits to the codebase every week. Some are bug fixes, some are user interface tweaks, some are new features, some are code quality improvements.
Trailguide 2023 Spring Edition
An overview of what is possible with the Trailguide app
Trailguide is under constant development and we add new possibilities all the time, but we are not very good at telling you about them. Check out some of the features available and see how it can help you to find great trails to enjoy this summer.
New user interface for Trailguide
An overview of the latest changes and improvements
The user interface of Trailguide has evolved a lot over the years. Little by little it has changed as we learn more and add more features. I think it has improved the ease and efficiency of use and at the same time making it look a lot better. See what changes we have made this spring.
