Ratings and Reviews
Confusing and Clumsy
I’ve used several apps covering the same information. This is the worst so far. Deleted after a few minutes of use.
An update has been issued. Map mismatches have been fixed and it uses uniform map icons now, for what it's worth. I'm always listening to constructive feedback, too.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
