This app functions just as its name infers. It’s a map application with a few well-curated extras like the ability to arrange the function buttons—the location button, drop pin button, settings button, Twitter button, and an alarm button—in one of 12 place holders in the four corners of the screen. Maps+ works similar to the former Google Maps app and the current Apple Maps app in that allows people to search locations directly from a search bar at the top of the screen.
Maps+ also gives biking and walking directions that are more-or-less pretty accurate (we tested here in NYC). One of the coolest features is the ability to crete your own route. Say you take a quick, easygoing route to work and want to share it with your friends, or if you go on a hike and want to remember exactly what trail you took for next time, you can have Maps+ record your movements and create your own “Track.”
