I put a lot of effort on this application. If you like it, I will really appreciate if you could give me a review here in the App Store. Thank you!
- Minor bug fixes.
+ The color of the Start annotation (the reference on the map to the beginning of the hike) is now green to match the related guide (the green ball) in the compass.
+ Now when you touch any annotation on the map, the coordinates of that location will be shown, along with an option to share that geographical point with applications such as Waze, Google Map or simply use this coordinates as plain text.
