Features:

  • This editing app allows you to create, share, edit, and also look at different maps that have been personalize on your Android phone
  • It has a great deal of functionality when it comes to editing and offers options for lines, shapes, certain types of markers, and the ability to put your location on the map with the built in GPS that is on your phone.  You can also attach photos on there right from your mobile device
  • On the maps you are able to plot a bunch of different points.  This feature could be great for a company trying to point out locations to a customer or to anyone that is going on vacation and wants to plot out everywhere they would like to go  while they are there

  • There are a few different viewing modes that you can jump between in order to view your map.  These include the standard map mode and the satellite mode
  • You can use the drag features to move the map and see what is around it
  • Utilizes your connection to the internet as well as your built in GPS on your phone

Conclusion:

While this app could possibly have many more applications, it runs short of a lot of expectations by not offering a few simple things.  For one, why have a map app without any way of navigating to the points?  This app is nice because you can plot out areas on your map you would like to go but then there is no navigation feature to guide you there!  Also, the information on photos or webpages you provide on the app don’t tie directly into Google or add any pertinent information.  While it is a good app for showing people where on a map something is, it needs some sort of navigation system to be able to really be worth it.

This Android app has gotten decent reviews and averages a 3 out of 5 star rating by popular sites.  The app is completely free to download off of the Android app market.
