Ratings and Reviews
It's the first app where I found this function, way back in 2011 and shortly after I bought the then cream of the crop iPhone 4S. I've been using it since then, and it's just flawless. It has never failed when I needed it, never had a single bug or a crash. The only minor improvement I could think would be it to be optimized for the iPhones 6 and 6 Plus.
Works as Advertised, but a little Awkward
Calculates direct distance between user defined pin drops.
As others have indicated, would be nice if one could buy a non-ad version.
Awkward to have to make multi-points around a curve, but this is a minor inconvenience.
Does what it says
Perfect app for manually planning out runs and such, though it would really help if it were optimized for iPhone 5 and the new iOS 👍
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
