I received a response from an email to the company and they resolved the issue, the half moon option switches to a different map, weird but it worked. Anyways, the customer service was quick and spot on, awesome!

Bought this app for the ease of measuring and getting bids together, however the old outdated maps are not working well for me with all the new builds going on in my area. Just down the road is a building that was constructed, they started breaking ground on it 5 years ago and there is zero of that in the outdated maps. Just an example but still a real problem imo.

This is one of the best apps of its kind. The capability is incredible and allows for most of my needs. This includes things like having multiple shapes colors and more. On the down side, it would be nice if you had more options for showing notes and presenting measurements. Another major issue is the inability to export maps to another device or a sync feature so my maps would be current on all my devices. The only other thing I can think of is the maps offered in this program are not as current as some of the other apps I use. Not a big deal overall but worth mentioning.

So Disappointed

I thought I could use this app to physically walk out measurements, and it is WAY OFF. I am measuring the 50’x30’ rectangular tent at one of our seasonal retail locations. I just walked the perimeter, dropping a pin at each of the 12 support posts. This app made the rectangular tent look like a 12 point asymmetrical star or something. I needed to measure the tent to set up our tables and displays, starting at the tent and moving outward on the property. I guess I’ll have to go back to the old fashioned way we’ve done it for years and years. 😕

I rated it a 2 instead of a 1 because at least the app can be used to measure an area with a location address. This doesn’t help us since the tent is never placed in the same exact spot.
