Bookmarks feature for me makes the +
My wife and I have travelled internationally and the bookmarks feature has been huge for us. Restaurants, monuments, etc we can bookmark (or 'pin it') and we know we have been there and want to return. Want to map out an itinerary? Bookmark the places you want to go in advance. Pass something interesting but don't have time to check it out? Pin it! And the app allows you to export the bookmarks ( all or some). The only suggestion I have for the developers is possibly to find a way to allow bookmarks to sync across devices. Overall we love it.
I love the combination of Apple's Map functionality and Google's data. The app works pretty well, with the following exception: it's impossible to enter information into the app with iPad Pro's Smart Keyboard. The app simply doesn't get that the keyboard is being used. To be fair, Apple Map does the same thing. Hopefully, this will be resolved in either future iterations of iOS or in both of these apps—whichever is responsible for the glitch.
Latest version and no reclamation in advanced features.
The biggest differentiator for this app used to be advanced routing, tracking and bookmarks. That's why I paid the money for it. (That and it was miles better than Apple Maps).
But with this major new release, they've taken out two of those major feature categories. The worst part? Directions take you to Google or Apple Maps app. Excuse me, but why did I pay $2.99 for you to take me to another app to do basic directions? Because you map my Twitter feed (new feature)? Sorry, but knowing where someone just tweeted a photo of their butterfly whip cream design in their Pumpkin Spice Latte with the latest Instagram filter isn't going to help me get to Carson City. Lame regression.
I won't use this app until they bring back a reason for me to do so.
