On The Map (OTM) is a location finder and map maker. It can be used to chronicle your travels or to place a marker on a local or world map of all the places you've been. OTM can also be used to find your current location for general positioning purposes.
With updates to Facebook or social media, it can let your friends know where you've been. Put your mark - On The Map!


Simple interface, very easy to use.

Add locations manually or based on your current location (accuracy & availability varies with device type).

Supports as many saved maps as you like.

Manual update of maps to the system pasteboard or via sharing (you can e-mail your maps).

Use Standard Map, Satellite Map or Hybrid Map provided by the MapKit.

Zoom in/out to show the amount of detail you want on your map.

Add images from the system pasteboard (taken from Safari, your photos album, or other apps that support the pasteboard) to your maps.

Uses reverse-geocoding to label pins you drop on the map.

Search for a location using the Search Button.

Can update to Facebook.

Three map sizes are supported.

Dates of when pins are entered into the map are maintained (for journaling your travels).


How it works:

The map can be zoomed in (stretch with two fingers) or zoomed out (pinch with two fingers). Pan the map by sliding your finger across the map. Double taps zoom the map in increments.

Place a location on the map with the location service button (lower left) or the manual button (lower middle).

Add a clipart or photo from the internet or your camera roll (hold down any black area for 2 seconds to invoke system pasteboard).

Long Press (> 1sec) in map to get "share" option to send current visible map to twitter, snapchat, tumbler, printer, iCloud, email, etc.

Adjust settings (info button lower right). This can add a caption, change map names, select map size and type, select last pin as your home location, select auto zoom on pin placement, select location accuracy, and enable/disable timed updates to Facebook.

Clear a map (trashcan button upper left).

Um, What?

This app either doesn't do nearly what it says, or it's at least baffling to figure out. After spending 20 minutes adding markers to the map, I find out only my last one was still saved. There doesn't seem to be a way to move a marker, or even delete a single one mistake and you can either clear the map or leave the mistake up.

There's no search, so if you want a specific address you have to zoom in on the exact spot and hope you have it centered exactly perfectly on the screen. And finally, entering a name of a location isn't exactly easy: it utilizes spell checker, which means any non-standard location name will be replaced, and there's no auto-capitalization. I know the last sentence there would simply be nice-to-haves, but the basic lack of functionality makes it unusable for what it says it can do: make maps.
