A Disappointment of Atlas Proportions
I am disappointed with this Bible Atlas. I could not find a search feature. The maps presented themselves in whatever manner they wanted and would not rotate on the iTouch from vertical to horizontal or visa versa. Rather than 30 some odd maps, it seemed to be more like portions of several. Some of the maps were postage stamp size, and were placed in vacant spaces of larger maps. Not all the ancient cities in which I have an interest could be found. The available maps are, for the most part, large area maps seriously lacking in any real detail. None of the cities in which I looked could be viewed down at a level to see streets. I feel I have wasted the $4.00 the atlas cost and have deleted it from my iPod. Knowing that I cannot have a refund for other disappointed expectations, I do not have much reason to purchase any other applications from the App Store. I would not recommend this atlas for purchase. Having used it, I would not keep it on my iTouch even if it were free.
What you're looking for
Chances are if you've found this app, it's b/c you were looking for it - and you found the right one. Nothing flashy here, just some good Bible info you'd find in a standard Bible dictionary, with good looking maps, which I hope will be someday updated and expanded to allow closer zooming, layering, terrain views as well as photos of Biblical cities and sites. A good start - I look forward to seeing some real use of iPhone tech!
1. why do we have random maps and other info placed in some of the larger maps.
2. you have to scroll a lot to view a map
3. some seem to be just poor quality scanned in copies
5. Why is the ipad version 4.99 and a separate app which is the exact same thing? should have just updated this app to make it ipad compatible. i am sorry I spent the money on the iphone version, I am sure as heck not spending another $5 for my ipad - with the same number and the same maps.
