Maddening But Useful
Used this app this weekend while finding our way around Toronto. Was convenient not to have to haul around a large map (we took buses off the generic tourist map), but this app has some really maddening quirks. When you do the finger spread thinggy or tap to enlarge the map, it gets bigger, and then suddenly "jerks", and changes format, causing you to lose your place. It does this several times, til you drill down to the largest format. When you get to the larger views, street names disappear. Then when you do the two finger tap to get it to zoom back out a bit, it zooms ALL the way back out, and jumps to some area miles north of downtown Toronto. So you have to start alllll over again. Also, it tends to lock up, and when you are on a bus or tram, desperately trying to drag the map along with you, it freezes. With work, this app would be marvelous, as it was, it was a semi-useful aggravation. To be fair, it might have had something to do with us turning off location services, but bear in mind, if you are travelling internationally and don't have an international rate plan, you don't have much choice.
