Ratings and Reviews
Much improved but...
This new version is much better but still lacks snapping, orthometric elevations, and it still fails to post attachments quite often. It would get 5 stars if those issues were addressed.
Fix text boxes, please!
First off, I’m a biologist and I use this app everyday for work on a large construction project. On any given day 20+ people log their daily activity using this app, for the most part it is incredibly effective and is instrumental in organizing all the relevant information we need to do our job. Although I’m not the one analyzing/compiling all of this data, I can imagine how this app has saved countless hours of work. All of this comes with quite a big “but”, the text boxes added from the most recent update are very frustrating to use. When the text box is filled with lots of content and the phone’s keyboard is open (which opens once you select the text box) it becomes literally impossible to scroll up or down or work on the other parts of my report. I can’t emphasize enough how unbelievably annoying this small bug is, and I hope that it can be fixed soon, because it’s driving me and my coworkers mad.
Powerful but infuriating
This has so much potential, but it’s like it was designed by people who never actually use it. It’s stubbornly difficult to actually collect points. First of all, every time you click off the screen on your phone, it disconnects the GPS. If you have a Bluetooth unit connected, that means it can take up to a minute to get the location again (even with the internal receiver, it has to find satellites again). Regular mapping apps don’t have to do this. Second, you can’t take points while taking a track line. So if you’re marking a trail and want to add a notable point, you have to stop tracking. Again, other apps don’t have this. Finally, the ability to download maps is poor even compared to the bad previous version. It’s a fixed download size, so the area + resolution are fixed in combination; to get a bigger map it has to be lower res, no matter how much space you have. That’s why I got a 64gb phone!
