Ratings and Reviews
Alright so here is the deal. People think the ui in this is bad, quite frankly they are wrong. We are nerds here I mean common guys we have worked with way worse ui’s. This apps ui has four buttons in the opening screen and four in the map maker screen. That’s not bad at all the only thing I would change is having a dedicated erase button among the for buttons on the map maker, because you know people are going to mess up. Now other then that this is a fantastic app and exactly what I was looking for. I’m a on the go kind of guy and I don’t have much time to sit down and make maps, but now I can take it with me on my phone?! Well needless to say I’m pumped, and to top it all off I can save the maps I make to the cloud and access them from my computer latter. This app also has the capacity to print said maps in figure size without the need for scaling or other troubles. If you haven’t made maps before let me just tell you that that printing feature is awesome and will really make things better. This app is great and fully deserves my 5 out of 5 and as the developers continue to modify and upgrade I will be struggling to rate them even higher. Thanks you ye old map maker for this quality product, I can’t wait to see what more is in store.
So the app really looked good online and the graphics were exactly what I was looking for in a map creation tool. I read some of the reviews, no one seemed to like the UI much but I figured I would work with it. I download and install on my iPad so I can go right to work. I create a small map and attempt to save it and the application locks up. No big deal. I realize I need to register and create an online account in order that my device has an online location to store data. Of course I think that’s what the problem is. So I register. I restart the app and login. I create a map, and the app freezes when I try to save. No matter what I do, save, save as, the app freezes. It does not save a map I have been working on. It essentially is 100% useless to me in its current state.
I really hope that my $1.99 goes a long way towards QA and development of a version of this that actually works.
Developer Response ,
Hi there, rest assured you were definitely experiencing a bug! We just released an update that fixed that and a few others. Give it a shot now - you should be good to go.
While I applaud the effort and some of the pre-made maps are really handy. The potential of this app is crushed by the unfriendly interface. There is unfortunately nothing easy, intuitive, or standard about the interface. Large graphics in the UI lead to lots of scrolling or stepping through content, and I found that when scrolling it would continually reset to the top of the list causing great frustration and aggravation. What little I was able to do with the editor was also clunky drawing over or next to existing walls would delete them rather than connect them even though the was a separate delete button. All in all I was very disappointed in the experience I had hoped for a much smoother app but for now it seems I'll stick to pen and paper.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
