Camino Francés : Wise Pilgrim for Negative User Reviews

TerribleNo pierda su dinero.Version: 1.2

What does it do?????????I have downloaded this app in the expectation that it will help planning. Despite numerous attempts to download information on just the first stage, I have a basic map with elevations and some background about what the app is supposed to do. Basically nothing. What is going on???.Version: 1.2

Disappointing, irregular functionalityThis app’s functionality is highly disappointing. I’m on the Camino now, and more often than not (about 90% of the time), it does not open correctly. That is, the screen open the immediately closes. However, when I view all of the currently open apps, it shows the app as being open. About 25% of the time, I can open the app from there. But the other times I need to close the app fans start over/try again later. When it works, the information is useful..Version: 2.2.10

Doesn’t work on iPhone XJust downloaded the app and it crashes on opening..Version: 2.2.10

Crashes too much to be relied uponThe app includes decent information from what I've been able to gauge. But the app crashes more than 50% of the time. There are times when you cannot get it to work when you need to make a decision about the way to go. You just can't count on it....Version: 2.2.10

CommentsComments on albergues not working on Frances app..Version: 2.2.8

A good start but not well organizedI bought this app after my Camino group split up in Burgos and I was left guide less. With some heavy pre-planning at the albergue I can map out tomorrow's course, but it requires taking snapshots of the map and checking other sources for distances. A few suggestions: 1) I'm in Leon. This app tells me I am only 245 kilometers from Santiago, but every other guide, including my Camino Passport, puts me at about 300. The difference is worth TWO DAYS of walking. distance from current location is useless if it's not Camino distance, but as the crow flies. 2) The stages should be broken up into 25-30 kilometer sections. 30 kilometers is a pretty aggressive day for the average pilgrim, but would still be functional for planning. Most guides follow a 20-24k plan. It would be helpful if this guide had similar stages. Also, the total stage distance should be shown on the stages page. 3) A distance calculator would be very helpful. It would help with planning if I could enter the names of cities and receive a total distance. Or if I could enter a start point and a kilometer total and receive an end point, or the nearest city with an albergue. 4) The map is the best feature on this app! Please make it accessible offline. You're off to a great start, please keep up the good work!.Version: 2.0.5

Just okay.Crashes upon open frequently, but just click it 3 or 4 times and it works, so maybe 2 stars would be more appropriate. Not optimized for iPhone X screen size. Used it for partial Camino from SJPDP to Fromista in 2017. Like the elevation profile. Albuergue guide a bit basic but complete, a narrative review might be nice or more user comments would be nice. Comments are recent only. Decent narrative for route but a bit difficult to access, you tap The Provinces, the you find your area. Took a bit to discover that. No offline map, so I downloaded competitor app thar has gps and oggline map. No customizable schedule/route..Version: 2.2.10

Camino FrancésThere is a lot of information in the app, but the route isn't broken down into stages, and every time I try to look at detailed information for the various options for lodging, the app crashes...every...time. NOT worth the money..Version: 1.3.3

Not worth itComplete waste of money. I found nothing useful here..Version: 2.0.5

Was a great app, but quit workingThis app was incredibly valuable when I walked the Camino Frances in 2025, but it has quit working on my iPhone X. Each time I open it the app immediately quits..Version: 2.2.10

Quit workingI bought this app because I don’t want to carry a guidebook on my Camino. However, every time I try to open the app, it immediately quits working..Version: 2.2.10

No new update?Well it’s a good thing I follow groups related to camino so I can get more current updated information. Relying on an app that isn’t updated to plan and navigate isn’t all that wise, IMO..Version: 2.2.10

Some additional features would make this more usefulI'm on the road right now trying to use this app - without a data plan. I am relying on wifi at albergues and bars for my iphone and ipad. First of all, this app has a lot of info. That's great! But it's hard to use because there is just so much and at times it's confusing. I would like to suggest the following: Quick links - ability to bookmark albergues/stages Cacheable maps/Distance - so you can take a look a town or a stage easily. Ability to leave notes about a town/stage to give the heads up to pilgrims. Ability to download latests notes for a stage you are looking at so you can make the right choice for albergues (if you have a choice!!) Maps to point out route changes more clearly..Version: 2.0.5

Not working on iOS 7.1Downloaded latest upgrade onto my iPhone 4s. App now doesn't work. When trying to access Albergue info app immediately closes..Version: 1.3.3

Doesn't Update & Missing Key InfoHave gotten no response from Wise Pilgrim support, but did see another posting from another user with the same issues i have. As installed all the lodging information is absent. If you try to update that stage your iPhone just hangs. Also I see no directions nor do I see a useful map, only an elevation profile like the Astorga profile shown in the 3rd screen pic above. The artwork is beautiful and I'm hoping this app could be my walking guide. I've tried at least 5 or 6 times over about 3 weeks, plus left messages with the support page with no response. Perhaps the developer has had a major crisis. It's a great concept. Here's hoping the issues get resolved!.Version: 1.2

DisappointedI am still in my house with good wifi connections and I still can not open the links . I was hoping to get something decent for the price that I paid . So disappointed !.Version: 2.1.2

Not ready for prime timeA little bit more development would have made this a great app. It appears to have been rushed to market without a final proof. Lots of distance errors, the online map is worthless because the map symbols overlay the route making it impossible to use. Distance to any destination apparently is as the crow flies, not matching the apps text descriptions. It is necessary to drag along a competitive guide to double check whatever this guide tells you. That makes this guide redundant in the overall scheme..Version: 2.2.14

Does not workProgram keeps re-booting whenever you try to access anything. It is worse than completely useless. A total waste of money. (this is the first app I have ever given a negative review!!!).Version: 1.2

Don’t buy!Just bought this and it crashes every time I try to open it..Version: 2.2.10

Could be a bit betterWould like to see a landscape display on iPad. When you link to a web page it looks better in landscape mode so you wind up rotating the iPad all the time..Version: 2.1.6

I want my money back!This app basically does nothing. I was so disappointed. I was hoping it would map my progress or show me where I was like on Google Maps. But this is a swindle. I will investigate getting a refund..Version: 1.2
