Great App - Accurate, Professional UI
Note to Developers: Please add support for two measurements or more at once. Your imposters are doing this and it would be an awesome feature.
This app comes in very handy in the field. I am a road construction inspector and have had the opportunity to compare this app against known survey measurements of over 13,000 ft and have found it to be within 3 ft at that distance. I am convinced that the difference of 3 ft is related only to my inability to select the beginning and endpoint perfectly, which is expected. The user interface is very professional. Recent upgrades as made the app very fast. Best of all, it still utilizes Google Maps imagery, which is higher quality than Apple Maps. I highly recommend this app to anybody who might need to measure something outdoors, whatever it might be.
Good useful app
I really like this app and it is very accurate. I am an asphalt contractor and I use it on a daily basis. I rated it four stars because it needs a couple things. It needs the ability to print from the app itself instead of having to email or save to photos and then print. It would really be nice if you could walk around in the field and take some points as you walk and be accurate within a foot or less. Overall I really like it. And it is worth the price.
Didn't have needed functionality
I was trying to measure the area of an irregular polygon where I knew the lengths of the sides. Ideally, I wanted to draw this on a map and measure. It doesn't do that. You can drop pins where you think they belong, but you can't make precise measurements. Apparently Apple won't refund your money unless you spend hours hunting down the developer and getting it in writing the functionality you need doesn't exist. So if this is the functionality you need bypass the expense.
