Beautiful UI, useless search
Jeremy Rowland write:
Fills a gap that should have been in the built-in iPhone Maps app, syncing to Google My Maps and allowing offline access. And it's a good thing, too, as whatever database the app is using for its searches has virtually nothing useful, notably nearby businesses (even when set to Google Maps as a source), and consistently returns "no results". You'll need to do your map planning on your pc.
All told, a beautiful and useful (if not always helpful) app.
Does not provide routes, completely useless
This app is a ripoff. It does not provide routes from google maps. You have to manually add everything and manually "navigate". The support forum states that implementing routes is a "secondary priority". Well, that's the only reason why I wanted to use this app, to be able to see my route from google maps offline. Other than fancy interface this app has nothing else that I would call useful. Waste of money!
enormous promise, not quite delivered

I made a deliberate effort to use The Cartographer over two weeks in London and Paris in March 2011. Even though I had an international data roaming plan, I knew it would be bitterly limited and limiting, so the ability to save a bunch of marked-up Google maps to my iPhone and then refer to them relative to my GPS position without being dependent on cellular data was quite appealing. I diligently set up maps of places I wanted to see in Google Maps and then downloaded these maps to the app. It basically worked, but both the setup process and the actual use of the app on the ground while traveling were hampered by poor performance and instability. So far, the developer has put a lot of effort into cosmetic effects that quickly grow tiresome and not enough effort into fundamental robustness and responsiveness. To whit: this app was frustrating to use and roundly disappointing. In its current form, I cannot recommend the app, but I hope the developer will keep working on it, because the idea has great potential.
