Like it

I have used this quite a bit and really like the functionality. I asked customer support if the heading given is true heading or magnetic- haven’t heard back, software could do either by taking the current location and applying the declination. True would be better. One other thing in the way of a suggestion, you get to select between DMS & lat/long. Most EMS/Fire services use degrees and decimal minutes, to be able to select that mode would save a conversion step at least for me. Happy with it will continue using, thanks.

Developer Response

Hi BB Bray,

Apologies for not getting back to you earlier. Thank you for reviewing my app. After your review appeared I realised my internet hosting service had not set up my support email correctly. Following several failed attempts to have the situation resolved, I have now got a new hosting company and the support email address is now working as it should.

I will research your question regarding true north and magnetic north and provide a setting to allow that to be changed in the application. I will also make changes to the read outs to help make the app more useful to you.

The latest version 1.1, released yesterday, does not address the issues you have raised but hopefully the next version will.

Please use the support email address again, so that I can communicate directly with you on the issues you have raised.

Nice and simple

Nice app with simple interface.

Suggestions:

Add a method to select the current location as the destination by clicking an arrow or button. I found that you can type “here” in the search box to replicate this but a dedicated button would be easier.

Add conversions for various methods of coordinate entry.

Add a method to save multiple destinations in a list so you can select from a saved location instead of having to re-enter the coordinates or address each time.

Developer Response

Already working on a list of favourite places along with iCloud syncing if you have more than one device.

The other two requests would fit in well, so watch out for these in a future update.

Thank you for spending the time to send in your suggestions.
