iOS Open Beta + New Android Release
Better late than never, CalTopo’s iOS app is now available for beta testing via TestFlight. The Android beta has also gained significant new features to match iOS, and both apps will maintain feature parity going forward. Changes include navigation, importing and exporting files, improved track recording, and additional map layers. You may also notice our new logo!
To use the iOS app while in beta you will need to install TestFlight and then join the public beta. Directions and download are located at:
The app and most of its features are free and will remain that way, however in order to download offline maps you will need a CalTopo subscription; the basic subscription offers 5GB/year of offline map layer downloads for $20 per year. You can subscribe here: (https://caltopo.com/join).
At this point the app’s major features are complete, but there are still lots of improvements to be made, including around battery life. You may find errors or glitches still. We want your help working these out! Please let us know if you run into any problems with the app, or you love or hate something about the app with as much detail as possible so we can continue to make improvements.
We’re very excited to share this next development with all of you and can’t wait to hear what you think!
