Plotter Social Maps
By Plotter, LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
We think it's time for a map app that does more than search and directions.
Plotter is a social mapping app that lets you easily create, share, crowdsource and discover maps on your phone.
CREATE MAPS OF MULTIPLE PLOTS (LOCATIONS)
Finally, a mobile map app that lets you plot maps of multiple locations that can easily be turned on and off whenever and wherever you need them. There is no limit to how many maps you can create.
We all have those friends you can rely on for a great recommendation. Plotter makes it easy to crowdsource your maps from your friends on Facebook and Twitter. All you have to do is create a map and then sit back and see what they recommend. Once a friend posts a plot for you, it will automatically show up in your Activity feed to easily add to your map or ignore.
THE MAP ROOM
Not in the mood to create your own map? The Map Room holds a collection of featured and popular maps that have already been curated by experts and the Plotter community. Keep checking back, as the Map Room grows everyday.
Find and follow your friends to see what maps they're creating. You can easily recommend plots to their maps, and even take maps you like.
Search for addresses and locations just like you would on those other map apps. Once you find a location, you can add it to one of your maps or just view details like a phone number, website and reviews.
Heading out for a trip to the city and want to route the day's activities? Paths allow you to set either a walking or driving path between all of the locations on a map. Simply order the locations as you'd like and you'll get a color-coded path you can follow. Access paths by swiping one of your maps in the left column list view.
Suggestions for maps you can create:
• Best of Lists (Restaurants, parks, museums, and anything else you're into)
• My Favorite Restaurants, Shopping Spots, Landmarks, etc. (Your favorite places, just a tap away)
• Places I Want to Visit/Try (Don't ever forget about those restaurants you always want to try)
• Upcoming Trip Planning (Works around the world)
• House Hunting (Your Real Estate Agent can recommend houses as they find them)
• Nightlife Benders (Plot out the night's events and then share it with your friends)
• Delivery Drivers (Quickly plot out all of your deliveries and create a path between them)

I really wanted this app to be great, but it crashes whenever I try to delete a community map I added by accident. To its credit, it has a nice interface, and the features I wanted appear to be there, but it's in need of several bug fixes before I'd consider it to be reliable.
Also, I can't tell if the app is still actively supported. No updates on their Twitter feed since last July, and the app hasn't been updated since last September.
I'll keep trying to use it for now, until I find a suitable replacement or Plotter is updated to address the outstanding issues, whichever comes first.
Love the idea, wish it worked better
I LOVE the idea of this app. It is so crashy though, I cannot even create one map!
I think there should be the ability to create maps via computer and load to phone/ipad app through the cloud.
Also, when I enter an address that the app doesn't recognize, it says "phone number not available" but then it doesn't let me enter a number in that space. Weird. I'd be updating a business info/listing for you, but your app won't let me.
I'm disappointed because I truly love this idea. I'm trying to plot our family's road trip and I feel like i NEED this app. Unfortunately I cannot create our map with it, though.
Bugs and crashed
App doesn't even allow me to create an account. Needs major work.
