    This is the app I’ve been looking for. It is the basic map that’s easy to view. It is however too costly for a basic map. When I paid $10 for it I was hoping for and expected the ability to annotate, that is draw lines and circles around cities and to be able to add personal labels. I hope these features will be available in an immediate update. ——-somewhat pleased customer

    I would give zero stars. There is nothing her that I can get from apple maps or google maps for free. This app is a complete waste. I WANT MY MINEY BACK!

    I bought this app thinking I would have with me a copy of Rand McNally’s maps of the USA. The quality of the maps is so poor you cannot blow them up to read. There are no index pages so you cannot use this app the way you would use an Atlas — that is, look in an index that would point you to the map page and then to the XY coordinates on that page. Also, the map pages do not link up. So if you drive from California to Nevada, good luck finding yourself in the adjoining state. This app was executed so poorly I don’t think Rand McNally are responsible for making it. It looks and feels like a hack.

    There’s no detail. Worthless unless you’re staying on the interstates.

    If it would let me rate it no stars I would have. Your paying $9.95 and all you get is a map of each state. You can that for free from google. I got it thinking there would be a mileage calculator or some other nifty things Rand McNally has in regards to travel. The only menu item this app even has is a legend of each map. LOL. I suppose that’s enough if you don’t already know the difference between an interstate and a dirt road while looking at a map.
  • Not what you would expect from Rand...

    My review in 2 words... "sorely dissapointed". This app is nothing of what I would expect from this "former" map giant. A broad overview of the U.S. with no indivual states to dive deeper. Only major roads with a sprinkling of secondary roads, and no real detail of either. I found it insulting to see the gray border "area shown with greater detail on inset map" still in the legend but alas no such thing. I would encourage RM, to dig a whole lot deeper if they intend on being in this digital landscape. I would be interested if they would consider giving me my money back, it's that bad. Additionally, the reported file size is 667 MB? For a legend and a single image of the U.S? This is extreme bloatware and, if one was to go negative, a spyware app...
  • It's an atlas, folks!

    Perfect. Exactly what it claims to be...a digital version of a road atlas that works when offline. If you're looking for a navigator to make your decisions for you this is not for you. But if you're a serious "road tripper" who goes out on the road with no set itinerary and wants to stop and make travel decisions along the way this is the "modern" way of carrying a bulky paper atlas or a collection of cumbersome paper maps. One feature I'd like to see (which I'm sure could be implemented with today's technology)....tapping an adjoining state when you reach the current state's boundaries should open up the new state's map. This app is a road-tripper's dream come true. People with no sense of adventure, or no desire to make their own decisions need not apply.
  • I love it!!

    I love this offline app. It’s a very handy tool. I can see the big picture. Quick to use! I trust Rand McNally more then I do Google Maps. I just love the oldschool paper maps. This app is just an added bonus, along side with the Rand McNally paper maps. Appreciate all that you do!

    This is exactly what I’ve been looking for, an atlas! Apple, Google, GM, and others could learn a thing or two regarding clear, clean, easy to read maps. What I love: - Rivers — especially when driving on the Plains, it’s great to be able to quickly trace a river and see where its source and end are; a quick way to look at early trails and settlement patterns. Good luck tracing let alone finding a label for a river on modern maps (which, to be fair, are designed for road navigation). - US and state highways, backroads, and scenic routes are clearly labeled and easy to follow! Apple, Google, and especially some of GM’s latest map software just fades these roads from view unless one zooms in to just a couple miles of scale. - Places of Interest — actual POIs, not just gas stations, restaurants, and the like! Suggested improvement: - Double tapping on a neighboring state takes you to that state’s map. Thanks for publishing these maps! They are crystal clear, easy to read, and give a great bird’s eye view for almost any trip, especially medium- to long ones.
