Ratings and Reviews
Great app; Simple, unobtrusive measurement.
I use this app with local trade sites to find the extents of the distance I’m actually willing to travel, or to set a comfortable radius on a dating app. “Within X miles” type questions pop up deceptively often.
I originally downloaded the free version as a fun tool, but bought the pro version for it’s additional features and to buy the developer a cup of coffee.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
