Ratings and Reviews
Disappointed with its limitations
Very limited compared to the Windows paid version. Infrequent updates, low-res maps even with a Retina display & only a few data feeds is very disappointing. Didn't expect it to have all of the Windows bells & whistles for $7, but it is closer in features to the free Windows version. Three stars only because it is still useful.
I am disappointed for a paid app. Not sure if it’s because I’m just not familiar with how to use the app or what, but they don’t even provide a link one how to use the features. The features they say the app has, I am not seeing them. I don’t see the volcano overlays, don’t see the option to import maps from other sources, can’t click on earthquake magnitudes to get details, etc. This was the whole point as to why I bought this app and I don’t have nearly half of the features I am supposed to have. Extremely disappointed.
Following Dutchsinse for years, I was always disappointed that I couldn’t follow along on my Mac. This is truly the next best thing. There’s a detailed tutorial which is a great help in the first setup and a great FAQ for new users. Most importantly, I can choose my data feed. I would highly recommend this app. It is worth every penny.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
