The app is excellent. I have thrown away all my ordinance survey maps and other guides. I have tried other similar apps but this is in a league of its own.
What is more I messed up my account and contacted support at 8pm on Saturday night and had a response within 5 minutes. I then asked for something the app didn't do and within 10 minutes I was given a work around to make it do it.
We had software at work that costs £100,000 and £10,000 a year maintenance and the support wasn't a patch on this.
If you have a smartphone a do any walking this is a must.
Unstable, un-intuitive app
Even though this app has always been rather difficult to use, not user friendly and un-intuitive, I used it regularly for field work with OS maps. After the last update it is now unfortunately completely useless. I had several crashes, requiring reinstalling - a procedure that is totally impractical if you out there without wifi and 3G. After the last crash there were no OS tiles anymore, requiring to download them again one by one after returning home, leaving me completely stranded on the track. I have now 'written off' the remaining credit and am back on the reliable paper maps.
Very handy app
Although the maps can seem a bit expensive they are much cheaper than the memory map ones on the Windows phone I had earlier. It is so handy to have the map downloaded and available when there is no WiFi. Fir me the maps are well worth it, though I only have two counties it has helped me on numerous walks.
