Map-o-meter is an easy to use app that allows you to mark an arbitrary path/route on the map and measure its distance.
With closed paths the area is displayed.
Contractors can easily measure distances/areas of a terrain, golf players can measure distance to a hole, pilots can measure runway length, race drivers can measure racetrack length, tourists can find the walking distance from point A to point B on any city.
- Imperial and metric units are supported
- Map can be zoomed to your current location
- Paths can be loaded/saved to a file
- Search a location (by address or name)
- Compute route given a start and finish points and optional waypoints
- Portrait and landscape support

Ratings and Reviews
I hate the iAds, please can we have a paid for version
This is great for measuring rough distances to places. But the iAds are incredibly distracting, they take up screen space and they animate which draws my eye away from what I'm doing. Please can we have a paid for version without the iAds?
Useful but with issues
I've used this app for recording and then following driving tests routes, and as far as it goes it's OK. However I have a lot of problems loading routes that I've saved, as the app frequently tells me there aren't any, and then after several more attempts suddenly decides that the dozen or so that I've saved do exists after all! Also, if I switch away from the app, when I switch back to it, it's completely lost the route I'd previously been looking at.
Some improvements I'd like to see before giving it a higher rating:
- Fix the issues with loading files and losing data
- With the in-app advertising, at least make these appear at the very bottom of the map (both in portrait and landscape modes), rather than obscuring part of the map as it does at present
- Allow more than one route to appear on the map at once, preferably with their own colour to help distinguish them
This was a great app, worthy of five stars. I found it very useful for planning walks but now it's almost useless because of the lack of detail in Apple's satellite imaging. It's not the developer's fault and I hope it can be rectified. I live in Herefordshire UK. I have on numerous occasions reported the problem to Apple without success. Please, please get it sorted.
WELL DONE! You got it sorted. It now deserves the five stars.
