Ratings and Reviews
I wish there was a tutorial on how to use this app. I am sitting here trying to just figure out how to look at the map.., least it’s only .99 wasted
When I tried downloading my second map, the app informed me that I had reached my limit of free maps, and I would need a subscription to continue.
The app doesn't work well, and Most of the functionality promised in the App Store doesn't exist, is available only after subscription, or doesn't work.
My recommendation to the developers is to be honest -- less hype and an app that works would be appreciated!
No dishonesty, this is an exciting app and all the app features should work perfectly fine without any need for a subscription. Features that may not work as desired are location services on iPad and iPod models without GPS hardware; unfortunately, you will need an iPhone or and iPad with GPS for most of the features to work as described. iPod players don't have GPS. Also, if in a forest, cavern or large build then GPS location service may fail to receive the radio signals. The subscription price is very low and currently is the lowest possible price allowed by the App Store. A one-time purchase stops the ads and doesn't auto-renew. Plus, the subscription is shared between all devices using that iTunes account. It helps us pay the internet hosting companies for the service to download maps. Unfortunately banner ads do not suffice in covering this service cost. Hint: if you want NPS and USGS maps without a subscription, their web site offer free downloads and then you can discover more of the fantastic features that this apps has to offer. If you find a feature that appears to be misbehaving, please email support and we'd love to know about any issue. And, thank you for pointing out the App Store was in need to mention the first few downloads are complementary. Likewise, free food samples at Coscow supermart are a rip off too if you eat the whole plate, can't stop that from happening, Specialness. – Dennis Lindsey
Perfect for hikers
