Pretty cool app that makes it easy to explore maps from many different sources on the web. I would give it more stars, but the area in which I live isn't represented by very many maps. Sometimes maps appear blurry at first, but this is because they are very high res and need time to fully load.

When the app was first installed it worked really well, viewing maps the maps was easy and the quality was good. However, recently the quality of the maps is poor all of the maps I have tried to view are blurred, and it does not seem to change with zoom level. To that end I would say the app is absolutely pointless until this problem is correct.

The app idea is fantastic but the execution is not as good as it could be. Some maps fail to load while others are blurry. There is an overall sluggish feel to the app as well so viewing maps in other places is difficult to navigate to. Improve things and this is deserving of five stars.
