Ratings and Reviews
I really like it when it works but lately the app crashes almost every time i try to add a layer. It used to work great. The support button does not give you anything. And the website for the app does not respond either. This app seems to be going down hill fast!
I have been using the app, if I remember correctly, from 2012. Initially, when I purchase the app, I needed something to develop routs, offline imagery capability and export final product to KML ability. This app has performed flawlessly, beyond expectations, from day one and every day of using it. In my opinion, the tool like this is well worth the money that the developer is asking. Honestly, I would pay over 1000$ for the app.
I'm a new user of this app and think its a really good start. It has great import/export and drawing capabilities and a easy to use design. What it really needs though is direction and distance readings when drawing lines and polygons. Also, the measuring tool should also provide direction. This is hugely important for drawing property boundaries. Without this capability, it is dependent on data sets created in more powerful GIS software. With it, this could be an amazing tool well worth the price.
