Pin Points - Flight, Driving Distance Calculator - App Review



So, how far is it from A to B (possibly via C)?

This App answers that, for 'as the crow flies', as well as on foot or by car.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
Absolutely as a one-off, I have taken the instructions from the developer, as these are clear, concise, and most importantly, accurate...

To plan a route or trip, you first need to set the starting point. This will be shown in the upper area. You can add as many midpoints to it as you like and plan your route or trip stretch by stretch.

You now have 4 different ways of setting your position to choose from. You can either use your current position as a waypoint, set one on the map yourself, search from an address, or add from a contact.

To set a waypoint on the map, zoom in to the desired area and hold your finger for one second on the spot you'd like the point to be set.

To move a pin on the map after it has been set, hold your finger on the pin until it moves. Now you can drag it to where you want it to be.

To recall a previous calculation, tap the list icon in the upper left of the main window. All previous calculations will be shown.

To see the distance between your selected waypoints click the "calculator" button. It will show how far away from each other individual points are. There are 3 different options for calculating the route (straight line, foot, car).

Want your route visually displayed on a map? Click the map icon in upper right of the calculation window.

Cost
The App Costs $2.

Indispensability
Sure, there are other Apps for doing the same thing but, not as easy to use, not giving instantaneous answers to the difference between line of sight and reality.

Dependability
This App works perfectly, within the limitation of Maps.

Security
You can, optionally, allow the App access to your location, which can be very useful.

The App is self-contained, so no concerns on this front.
