Great app.

A great little app. Use it a lot to check bike rides routes and distances for my rc models and rocket launches.

Doesn’t work properly

I have to press the screen to within an inch of me almost busting it just to get one pin put in. This seems to be the same issue with the other apps similar to this one

Great app, simple to use and good to have as a utility for those occasions when you need to work something like distance out.
