North Face and Everytrail.com have teamed up to create Trailhead, an app that lists and maps more than 300,000 bike routes and trails around the USA. Contagious magazine reports:
The Trailhead app will track users' route, distance, speed and elevation as they trek, allowing them to share and store trips, photos and tips for friends and fellow community members on social networks. The app also includes weather forecasts and recommends North Face gear based on how unkind the elements are set to be.We could use that for everyday, by the way—an app that tells us what the weather's going to be and recommends outfits specially.
