App crashed my phone. I can’t believe that it’s a new iPhone XR
one stars are the only way to end this rating Nag nonesense. You’re supposed to be using the new api, the one that lets us opt out of nags. If you don’t care about my preferences, I won’t care about yours. Sounds pretty fair. Why would I open a map program when what I really want to do is type a review? Makes no sense.
Sometimes it’s slow to update when running the outlaws
I test apps for a living and I’m a GIS professional. This app kept me engaged for hours building layers and changing thematics.
Before running out to a store to buy an “old” paper map to draw on and mark-up, I figured I’d check in the AppStore to see what kinds of maps were available to be marked up with unlimited “pins” and locations. After downloading a few apps and quickly becoming disappointed with them, and thus deleting them from my phone, I was leaning towards going with the “old” paper map purchase. I came across this app and wasn’t expecting much for what I wanted to use it for, which was the placing of unlimited travel destination “pins” all over the world, I downloaded it because it was free. I quickly came to the realization of how powerful this app is and decided to purchase the full-featured app, justifying the cost as being similar for the paper map idea I had. I have no clue of what most of the tools do, but for my purposes, this is absolutely perfect. Thank you for this open-ended map!!
Russian language app also called ”Map Plus” showed up on my phone. What’s that about?
Does not Include a tilt-pan view while locked onto my live-location. I’m certain that every map app on iOS except for google maps and ways, does not include a tilt-pan, one of the most critical elements of what makes a gps map awesome other than graphical resolution. I would greatly appreciate it if you could include a tilt-pan at the same altitude of distances that google maps provides.
The interface is a little clunky and some things are pretty complicated for the uninitiated but it's definitely feature packed. Since it's a little expensive, make sure you take advantage of the trial period.
Professional note: When i found this 2 years ago we were stuck using google earth to read our offices .kmz files. Now all field personnel use this. Its become an invaluable tool to get our work done. Also being able to create and send your own .kmz to the office helps explain difficult terrain or situations. Personal note: I use this when we go camping and off-roading creating my own road map through the wild so to speak, using the trip recorder. I pretend to use my compass when we need to find our way back to base camp but no one knows ;)
***** Review update: This is still the best, most comprehensive mapping app available. ***** Still amazing. I can’t believe how much this app can do. It’s like peeling the layers off of an onion.* I almost gave up on this app before I realized it’s potential but I’m glad I didn’t. I was looking for an app that could pick up where google fell short and I found that and more with this program. Still, I feel like I am barely scratching the surface of what this app can do. I think it would be a very good investment if the developer were to invest more heavily into the tutorials - perhaps geared toward material that is not too challenging to those of us that have absolutely no background in IT, programming, coding, etc. I had this app for almost a year before I actually used it and almost never tried to use it again because of the difficulty I was having with the learning curve. I still probably only know how to use about a quarter of its functions once I buckled down and read the tutorial that is offered online, though I would be lying if I said it wasn’t a challenge. Some of the information on there is quite advanced. Developers: I suggest investing in a video tutorial series in addition to your online tutorial. I think the customer base would benefit greatly if they offered a video tutorial. This would lessen the chance of some folks getting frustrated and never getting far enough along to really see what this app can do. Oh, and THANK YOU for this app. What a god send!!!
