Good start, though less info than web
The app is pretty good. Ultimately, using the website is (currently) a better experience.
One thing the app absolutely needs is better information density when tapping on a pin. On the website, tapping a provides several lines of data for that location. In the app however, only the address is provided. This means I'm constantly tapping the "(i)" button to learn about the location.
Request: when tapping the little "car" icon for driving directions, I would LOVE to see integration with Google Maps. Other apps (eg Fantastical) have this as a preference. Personally, I rely on Google Maps for their bicycling routes. I would gladly pay a hefty IAP if the developer made bicycle directions by Google Maps an option.
Update: 8/3/12 Been using BatchGeo and found a glaring annoyance...when current GPS location icon is clicked app does not automatically zoom. Default zoom is of the entire United States hence users have to double click multiple times to zoom in to an effective range. Not only annoying but also can be a hazard/distraction while driving. Taking off one star.
Been using batchgeo for over a year and I love it! Now this app...wow! Map is crisp and fast to load as opposed to opening from a browser. One feature sorely missing is external GPS app support such as MotionX because google maps does not have voice prompts on the ipad. Please implement and I will gladly rate five stars!
If you have multiple people at one location, only one of them shows up on the map in the app. The website handles it fine, lets you swipe to see everyone at that location.
Other than that app is a big improvement over trying to use the batchgeo maps on a browser on your phone. From what I can tell, the person who creates the map has to have the hundred dollar per month subscription, but once created the maps can be viewed on the app without the subscription.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
