Minor bugfixes and improvements
Ratings and Reviews
Promising, but not-yet-realized potential
This app exhibits enormous potential, but it's more of a public beta than a finished product. Aspects are remarkably polished, but gaping holes in the content and presentation quickly become evident. (I'm basing this review on the London and Paris maps, which should be amongst the most refined.) Some examples: most landmarks on the map such as park names are missing or hard to find/read; icons for restaurants, lodging and bus stops are un-labled and cannot be tapped for more information; you can add your own pins (bookmarks) but the app stops displaying them (infuriating), so there's no way to set up a bunch of weigh-points in a city and see them all at the same time and their respective relationships in order to plan a tourist day; the subway and bus map overlays are downright hilarious because none of the stops are actually labeled (!). The guide feature is pretty cool, however, once you begin to dig into it, and the ability for the app to cache a library of wikipedia articles about the city is killer.
In short, this app is worth watching, and you might be able to wring some value out of it in its current form, but prepare to be frustrated. Hopefully the developer will aggressively refine it.
p.s. I did not want to assign a star rating to this app in its current form, because none of the choices are even remotely appropriate: there's no choice that is fair to the developer or the customers.
I can download google maps offline for free. This doesn't seem to add anything better and I was hoping for excellent transit capabilities, which this doesn't seem to have. Hoping it "seems" better once I arrive in the cities I downloaded. I had planned on lifetime access, but it seems really unlikely at this point. $0.99 already feels like a huge waste for this.
Easy, reliable and great customer support.
