Gazetteer does not work
The alphabetic listing of sites no longer shows up, and the search function causes the app to crash and close. For the price, I expected some upkeep of the app.
After using the search function the app crashes often. Not always, but five times in the past thirty minutes. Regardless of how much money was spent making this atlas twenty years ago, it is an overpriced app today. One can just look up locations on Wikipedia. Coverage in the Cyclades is very poor. Many islands have only their name--not much help. Little maps in the Blue Guide have much more detail. The search function is quite particular about spelling. Different transliterations of Greek spellings will not give you any results. I read the instructions and am still not clear on the "compass" icon. Had there been a trial version or 'lite' version, I would never have purchased this. If you already know where a city was you can usually find it in this atlas. If not it is less certain. 1:1,000,000 and 1:500,000 maps are not that useful. Overall a very disappointing experience. Perhaps if I bought a new iPad this app wouldn't crash so much, but iOS 10 is what I use. I can't buy a new iPad every year just because a lame atlas app crashes frequently. In 2018 the technology for seamless scrolling from one raster nautical chart to the next exists and can be found in iPad apps in this price range. Smooth transitions from chart to chart and smoother zooming would add a lot to this app. Perhaps this atlas would be better done as a vector chart. I would not recommend this app.
Brilliant concept, hope it is continually updated
This is an absolutely phenomenal resource at a great price. I also have the hardcover edition, much more expensive, but the app is even better because of the search capabilities. Thanks!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
