"Distance matters"

Recensione di / Mar 25, 2014

Maps Measure allows you to draw routes and calculate distance on GMaps

There's a feature Google Maps' missing. It had it for a long time on its desktop browser version and then shockingly removed it. I'm talking about manually draw routes on a map and calculate distances.

Fortunately j4velin's Measure Maps has come up to bring it back. As a runner, I deeply appreciate it.

Measure Maps integrates Google Maps "map" and "satellite" layers and allows you to tap any point on the map to start a route or area you want to measure. Thus, any new tap will link that point with the previous one with a straight line.

Total distance / area is displayed and changes as you keep drawing. Tap the "trash bin" button to undo latest line.

You can choose either to display distance / area in metric or imperial units. In addition, if you tap "units" from the left side menu, you can view a summary with different units. Zoom in/out and search cities by name.

j4velin's Measure Maps is set in a minimalist interface. In fact, you don't need anything else to make the most of the app. However, I'm missing a more intuitive way to access the left-side menu. Maybe Holo-style layout with the three-bar top left corner button. Tapping the "distance box" isn't what I'd instinctively do to access it.

Regardless, Measure Maps fulfills a need a good deal of users have.

Qui è disponibile la descrizione originale fornita dallo sviluppatore
Simple app to measure distances and areas in Google Maps.

Just click on the map to add different points - Maps Measure will then calculate the distance, area or elevation* between those points.
This app does not calculate a route or something like that - it's not a navigation or route planning app.

Swipe in from the left side to access more options, long-click on the trash icon to delete all set points.

• Measure distances, areas & elevations*
• Imperial & metric units
• Map, hybrid-satellite & terrain view
• No ads
• Minimum permissions & open source
• Holo-themed with support for translucent system decor on Android 4.4

*the elevations feature requires an in-app purchase (0.99 EUR, 1.49 USD)

INTERNET & ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE - showing the map and getting altitude data
WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - caching map data
ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION & ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION - displaying your current location on the map
BILLING - upgrade to the pro-version through an in-app purchase

The app does not show any ads or collects any of your data.

    Andrebbe aggiunta la possibilità di avere la misura della distanza del singolo tratto di percorso, un base ai vari punti agguinti. Per il testo fa bene il suo lavoro ed è velocissima nel trovare il GPS.
