  • Very functional app 😊

    By Ksamulis
    I used this app throughout my walk on the primitivo. I found it very useful and user friendly. Being able to check where I was proved the most important aspect. Especially when doing the Camino Verde after Lugo. Thanks 😊

  • Good but needs improvements. They r very responsive to ???s

    By Kathy in salem
    Overall good app. Be aware you have to buy your section. It allows you to use KMs or miles and it is very useful to create your own stages based on the miles you want to walk each day. Missing is detailed written descriptions of the stages but there are symbols and grade maps. You can chose town with amenities you need by looking at symbols and it also gives you info on places to stay in towns so you can call to reserve I have sent them many suggestions and they respond right away but the changes won’t come for a while yet. Problems are that the stages function puts all the standard stages that you delete back in about daily. Your custom stages r still there but you have to delete all those standard stages regularly. Also does not recognize your location so every time you want to set up a stage your choices start at the very first town again. Takes a lot is scrolling towards the end! I think with some improvements you’ll have a good app here but would still have one of the written guidebooks on my phone for route guidance.
  • VERY Good App

    This app is a terrific help on the Camino. Real time temps, up to date albergue feedback and distance markers that make sense. Really a huge help.
  • Immensely valuable tool

    By SkiCoachPhil
    The Buen Camino app was a wonderful resource as I hiked the Camino. It allowed me to know exactly where I was in relation to the trail and reassured me I wasn’t lost when I couldn’t find any trail markers and helped me find my way back on the seldom occasion that I accidentally took a wrong turn. It helped me find Albergues to sleep at and it was a great resource for planning distance and what localities I wanted to stop at and what those villages would have available for me when I got there. If you want peace of mind when you’re hiking the Camino, like where you’re going, what you should see, and what you need to know, then this is the app for you!
  • Best App for the Camino...wherever you start!

    By tucanap4him
    Great job in creating this App! This came in handy on numerous occasions. Buy the route you are taking; it is well worth it! Great for cyclists too! Because folks are actively updating, you will be ready each morning. My husband and I did both the Northern and French Camino (starting at San Sebastián to Santander, then León to Santiago), and this App was better than google. My phone was my camera and guide! Buen Camino!
  • Good but a bit hard to use

    By Alinaalvarez
    I was super happy to hear about this app as my planning was getting me stressed, this app definitely took away a lot of that stress by having everything I needed to know in one place, links, recommendations, and lots of very useful things. However, I found it very unstable on the stage planning feature, I may not be using it correctly but everytime I want to plan a new segment or check I notice all my previous work has moved or disappeared, I also find it really annoying that the start point won’t pick up where the last stop is making me go every time through a huge list and spend so much time finding the start point again.

    Esta app es excelente. La acabo de usar en mi Camino Primitivo. No soy de España, así que la usé en modo de avión ya que funciona muy bien con el GPS del celular. Las recomendaciones de albergue, rutas, todo excelente. En todo momento me decía donde estaba y cual era el camino. La parte de brújula para llevarte a sitios específicos super también. Todo super, mejor app que he comprado.
