SmartPhone Apps Introduction

This page provides some apps that you may find useful on Google Android and Apple iOS smartphones. They are mainly to assist with navigation, but include other nature and health related apps you may find useful when out on a walk.

If you would like to suggest any additional apps for inclusion here please contact Leon at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

For the mappping applications the free OpenStreetMap global map is typically used. Anyone can contribute updates to the map with the appropriate tools, and members of our group do so regularly as, for example, paths are amended.

The OpenStreetMap wiki provides details of known mapping apps; this page for Google Android apps and this page for Apple iOS apps.

We have also included some Ordnance Survey mapping apps, some of which require a subcription and others that are free to use.
