Good and Bad

MCi5s

If this app didn't crash it would be a 5-star app. I guess that's like saying if this car's engine would just run it would be a great car! So the bad...the app crashes at the exact same place every time. That leads me to think it would be SO fixable, and I've emailed the details to the maker, so I wish a fix would happen. But I didn't even get an acknowledgment back. And furthermore, the version of the app is 1.0 after a couple years, so I think the maker moved on. Too bad. Because otherwise it's the best 'where was I' app I've used. The good? It works how you'd want it, a map feature that plots where you were, a slider that moves a little dot on the map showing your path travelled as you slide the time slider. Also the other way around, pick a spot in the map, zoom in/out to define a region, and it will tell you when you were in that region! A good tool. So why explain how good it is if it crashes each time you use it (and why not 1 star)? I guess in case the maker reads this and wants to fix it. Plus there aren't any reviews for this app now, so I wanted to explain more than just "it crashes", because it's so close to being a great app! But...it crashes...so it isn't!! [iPhone 5s, iOS 7.0.4].

Not practical

Kydiana

Only works when you turn tracking on which drastically reduces battery life, making it impractical to use when traveling which is when you would want it--I won't be using it.

great, but battery drain limits use

The app does what it claims: it offers the extremely useful ability to pick a spot on the map and see when you were last there or pick a time interval and be able to visually trace your path by freely moving a time slider forwards or backwards, all this and it presents the data wonderfully in interactive google style maps.
The downside, it drains your battery like crazy, because it's always on, using the power hungry gps chip (unless you manually disable tracking).
I just hope the developer plans to make the gps usage smarter so it consumes less power. I expect they will, but I hope they can solve the problem soon. Until they do, I will only turn on tracking specifically when I want to record my location data. Of course it would be better to be able to have it on all the time so you don't run the risk of forgetting to turn it on when you wanted to.
Note on operation: when you hit the clear all points button, all the position data clears from the map, but when you hit the import button, you retrieve all your past data. So, it does not appear that 'clear all' actually destroys data, it just clears the map and clears out the data in the app until you import all your data again.
Comment: the clear all points should probably be a button in the map view rather than the prefs, since the latter implies you are destroying data, while the former implies it's just clearing the current map view of points, which is the actual action of the button. Also, it's annoying that when you hit Clear, it not only clears the map, but clears data, so you can't do any new searches until you reload all your data, which can take a while. Why don't you just keep the data in memory, and just clear the map?
Question to developer (please include answer in app description if possible): a HUGE concern to address is data security, so what does this app do to make sure the location data is secure? Also, related to that, where is the data imported from when you hit import button? Is it stored locally, or from a remote server? I noticed that you cannot import or search any location data when phone is in airplane mode (3G and wifi disable). The "import" term implies it's stored remotely, which makes me nervous, and I don't want my location data stored on a server (unless I specifically choose to, and even then I would want to know if the data security measures are adequate. At least let the user choose.).
Lastly, a feature request: I would like the ability to permanently delete location data for a specified time interval.
It would also be nice to be able to store backups of location data to a pc (either via iTunes, or via emailing a file which could later be imported to the phone)
