Good custom map tool This app is good for those who like to create & share custom maps. Many of the features it lacks can be found in Google Maps, which is good reason why Google should never have separated the mapping tools into two applications. However, it needs full offline capability to be really of great use on mobile. No reason map tiles & kmz files can't be stored on device. Most of my maps are in places where data is lacking.
Just installed it, I was able to access my saved My Maps. But right away I noticed that the app has much less functionality than the desktop platform. The entire submenu below the search bar is missing, cannot "undo", "change style", "add photo", even "measure distance"! Perhaps Google didn't realize that the Android app will be used by travelers even more than the desktop/web platform. Also, why on earth this is a separate app from Google Maps? While you're at it Google, go ahead and create a separate app for "Contacts", "Tasks" etc under Gmail. Lord.
Cool idea 2 things that this app could perhaps benefit from ill state one i feel is urgent first, 1 the ability to draw a line without the line automatically bending in accordance with the curvature of the earth (i think thats why it happens??) I need straight lines for references sake. And 2 this is probably an app that could just be intergrated into maps or earth as opposed to being stand alone, because as it is it lacks features. Please tend to this! Thankyou
Needs a slight tweak The button to Navigate to a saved point seems hidden and small. Would like a Navigate button along bottom of screen after selecting a saved point. There's a big button to edit the saved point, but you have to select the name of the saved item then select a tiny button at top to navigate to that point. Save us a screen press and just put a Navigate option right next to the saved point name. Otherwise great app.
Needs a couple fixes I'm using this to track locations of vehicles at a car lot. There are two things that need to be fixed/added. One is the ability to add images to the points from the app. Another is if you search for a point that was created, it does not pop up in the app. Only in the browser.
Very limited Navigating the map is difficult. Tapping the crosshairs icon doesn't zoom in like it should. You can't change the icons on place markers. In the app there's a "view map legend" option which is a joke since every icon will be the same. It feels like this app was slapped together and abandoned. The My Maps web interface is leagues better.
