Ratings and Reviews
Legitimately the best app
This is legit the best app for this sort of thing that is also free. I am one of those people who could look at a map all day and not get bored so when I found MapChart online years ago I got really excited. Now that I have the app on both iPhone and iPad I am surprised that it actually works surprisingly better than I thought it would. Considering how most apps like this are hard to operate on smaller devices, I found the app to work just as good if not better.
The one thing I DO NOT LIKE is that when I am working on a map and I log out or close the app, when I come back later the map is erased. I have had multiple maps delete themselves. While this problem shouldn’t bother most people with s small, quick project that they finish in one sitting, it can be really frustrating when a full map gets deleted because you didn’t save it. Hours of work gone and I don’t know where to get it back. Oh well. Maybe I am doing something wrong but I feel like the app shouldn’t delete these things so easily. There is the option to save your map but that hasn’t worked for me and it doesn’t seem to allow you to re-edit the map after you have saved it, or even access it. I give this app 5 stars because of how easy it is to use but I would have to take away points for this one broken feature.

Thank you very much for your 5-star review and the kind words!
There is an autosave feature, that keeps track of your progress while editing your map. Then, when you use the same map again, you can restore your progress using Actions > Restore Configuration > autosave > Restore.
This should be working, even if you close the app or put it in the background. If you are still facing this issue, please let me know at email@example.com, so I can further troubleshoot it.
Great, but needs improvements.
So, I’ve been using this website for over a year now, and it has come in handy most of the time. I make historical maps of Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. Despite it being useful most of the time, it had two major flaws. One, some maps, like Europe - NUTS2 and Europe - NUTS3, are mostly for filling in specific locations. So, for instance you are making a political map of Europe in the year 1200 A.D, you will be able to correctly fill the borders of nations like France and the United Kingdom, but in regions like Russia, Ukraine, and Serbia there are no subdivisions at all. It is literally just a fully colorable country. That becomes especially annoying then you’re trying to paint Kaliningrad. Two, each map is of different proportions. If you are on a map like the few mentioned earlier and you try to edit it to fit, like a puzzle piece, into the Asia - Detailed map, it won’t fit whatsoever. That’s because the maps mentioned earlier are flat maps, no curvature like a globe, but for the Asia - Detailed map it is shown like a globe. That means if I were to try and fit the two Turkeys of both Asia - Detailed and a Europe - NUTS map, they would not align. Other than these major issues, the app is absolutely perfect. I would rate it 5 stars if I didn’t think this was such an important issue, and I have already emailed the developers, but I haven’t seen any changes in months. It would be greatly appreciated if this was fixed. Thank you.
Amazing Map app. I have some suggestions/ideas though.
I just want to start off saying this - MapChart is probably my favorite app when it comes to maps. Creating these maps make me feel very happy and makes me love this app even more. However, I do have suggestions. Fixing lag issues would definitely make this game even more perfected, but I know you are already planning to fix these issues as mentioned. Some suggestions I think would definitely be good additions is something like an undo button. I know you can get rid of colors by tapping and holding a colored country, however, it can be tedious at times if a big mistake is made. So, an undo button could easily revert anything you accidentally did wrong. Other then adding some more / improving existing maps, I see this app to be great and I plan to continue using this for a long time.

Thank you for the 5-star review! Really glad that you find the app useful.
Optimizing the app is the first item on my to-do list, so please stay tuned for improvements. I will also be adding a undo/redo functionality for sure.
Have fun mapping!
