Brett’s App: AllTrails app - Free! Or $29.99/year for Pro
Recently got on a kick to do some more hiking and walking outside, and so pulled up the AllTrails app I had downloaded a few years ago. Great way to find nice trails for walking, hiking, biking, dog-friendly paths, etc. Plus the best part is all the reviews that people post giving you helpful advice about each trail. You get basic info about the trail like length, what’s allowed, and how long it should take to walk it, along with easy/moderate/hard labels. Plus you get a full map of the trail. The free app is probably just fine for most folks, but upgrade to Pro for unlocking more map details and downloading offline maps.

Jeff’s iTip: Using AirPods with Windows. First it’s helpful to keep Settings pinned to your Taskbar so that it’s easily accessible when you need to connect your Windows computer to your AirPods. If you need to check the battery status of your AirPods Pro when they’re connected to your Windows computer, you can do that on your iPhone. Also be careful about removing one from ear because it can jump over to your iPhone or iPad and then you would have to re-connect to your Windows PC.
