What are users saying about Forest Xplorer

by Y####:

I was hoping to use this for homeschooling when my little lady gets older. However not one single forest has been added in Brentwood and we have lots of wooded areas to explore. It's a shame because this would have been handy to teach her all about nature... Seems I will have to look elsewhere.

by F####:

Is missing many forest commission locations. I.e. hopton woods is but 1 example. You can't search anything either. I.e. locations with cafe, toilets,disabled facilities, bike trails. You have to look indivually at everyone to see if it suitable. Pointless just use Google and the sites and facilities are more accurate.

meant for the UK only. the development team must've not believed they could become a big app so they only did thier local region. if you live in the UK it could be a very useful map. anywhere else, like the US, don't bother.

by E####:

Good start but viewing trail guides is akward....would be useful to have the option of downloading them as many sites have no phone coverage. Also would be nice to view woodlands as well as forest areas.

by N####:

Places like macclesfield forest aren't on their but good work so far anyway.

by H####:

Not as good as the old version. As you could press locate tab and would take u to google maps and plan your route, but does not work on the new version

by K####:

Why is Swithland Woods Leicestershire not listed? It has large oak forest going back hundreds of years with much to interest visitors.

by O####:

Maybe it's early days for the app but some very common trees aren't listed. Birch and willow to name just two. Perhaps the app should also state England only to stop people in other countries downloading it only to find they aren't covered.

by X####:

Doesnt show even half of the forestry commision woodlands,hardly any of the ones where i live like rowberrow for example are on it,maybe before you build an app,know what woodland you own,very easy to do surely.

by P####:

It's OK but unable to register on first page, always tells me my email is invalid.

by M####:

Has the places I go so is handy for quick trail plans. Would be excellent to have some kind of interactive mapping.

by B####:

Downloaded as the website suggested the app would give me a trail map for Wareham forest. Wareham forest not on app, unistalled.

by Q####:

Does not give any useful information for Forest of Dean. Does not show cycle tracks etc

by G####:

Good idea but dosent work properly needs a lot of development

by S####:

Excellent app,

by L####:

Installed on recommendation by forest holidays as it would contain info on the forest I was visiting. Provided no details for Scottish lodge locations. Uninstalled.

by T####:

What no forests in Scotland? More information needed.

by I####:
